    Well this was super mediocre. Guns feel weak and whatís with the super slow moving first person mode at the base?!

    Potential is there but I reckon, like Destiny 2, wait a year and then check back.

    Might not perform as well as I could, considering the amounts of beer I had tonight.

    This reminds me, played the Destiny 1 demo utterly wasted, and the only thing I remembered the day after was that I was fucking scared of some evil wizard. Fun times.

    Surely I canít be the only one who feels like WTF over this entire game. Doesnít feel like BioWare at all, runs pathetically on the base PS4, had no idea what to do when I started the demo, connection issues and then when I did get in mission the game did no explaining about what to do! I deleted it off my PS4 after 30 mins. If the demo represents the final product itís a total stinker.

    Probably doesnít help Iím coming from Resident Evil 2 which is the most polished product I have played in some time.

    What. The. Hell. I design UIs for a living and not on my worst coked out day would I shit out an abomination like this.

    After helplessly searching for half a minute how to launch a mission, I got thrown into one without an explanation how shit works, died after ten seconds and got stuck in "respawning...". Gave up after two minutes still not respawning no matter what button I pressed, and proceeded to launch Destiny 2.

    Same. Controls feel somehow off and flying unintuitive as well, but most of all...

    How the fuck are there loading screens every few minutes in a game in 2019?

    And I think I've had quite enough of games where you interact with terminals and shoot stuff while a disembodied voice delivers story / lore and you can't even be arsed trying to understand it because it's so disconnected.

    The UI certainly is a point of contention. When I was playing with friends earlier, I was trying to talk them through a few things from memory, as it's just not intuitive at all.

    Loading in-mission really needs to go away, as well. The worst is when you go out of bounds and are then greeted with another loading screen before being returned to where you were.

    Still, when you're actually playing, it's really good fun (IMO and all that, obvs).

    @ozthegweat the respawning thing makes me mad as hell.

    Basically respawning is either a) broken or b) a note to tell your team that you are revivable.

    Both of those are absolute billshit.

    Having said that, I actually really loved my session last night.

    Closer to a clicker game than a FPS. Grunts drop everything else needs bullet spamming to hell. They even bring grunts back so you don't run out of ammo.

    I almost enjoyed flying into scenery.

    Jumping into the javelin animation made me feel slightly claustrophobic even though I don't suffer from it.

    All the bad bits from Destiny without polish on the good bits. I'll not be buying.

    Yeah, this made me rather play Destiny. I don't really like Destiny.

    I've cancelled my shopto pre order based on my time with the beta.

    Might give it a year and pick it up when it's sub £20 and more fully featured

    sounds disapointing!

    usually you see two sides to a Story and can read if the pro comments are more the way you see things, or if the negative comments apply to things you feel are important.

    But with this one, most people have the same negative opinion. It is a shame, I was really looking Forward to this.

    I don't see it as a bad game exactly. Just not a very polished one. Certainly not the product of a massive studio and publisher anyway.

    Just missing to many things that make a blockbuster feel good. Whether that be audio feedback, UI design or just minute to minute gameplay being hard to read. Wouldn't write it off entirely but I guess that depends on platform. On PC you can play the first 10 hours for 99p, but I certainly wouldn't be paying £50 to play on PlayStation.

    I wouldn't download this if it was F2P.

    Genuinely.

    All we have played is a beta...

    I guess, there is every possibility in the main game they will have loading screens every 30 seconds and i will admit that you were right, but c'mon you cant complain about a lack of polish on a game still technically in development.

    Also, no one should pre order anything ever (I pre ordered i know but i am an idiot).

    It's out this month isn't it? It will long since have gone gold.

    That would be one hell of a day one patch, removing a terrible game and replacing it with one that works properly, and is fun in any way.

    I don't agree its a terrible game at all, I played a fair chunk of it and apart from some lack of polish and some odd gameplay decisions I really enjoyed my time.

    The demo was a 2 month old build so there is essentially a 3 month Dev time to fix the issues from the demo. Is that enough time, nobody knows.
