I haven't picked it up because the beta was really underwhelming and I'm glad I waited for impressions, because I think I'll pass. It feels like a step backwards from Bungie's Halo games in almost every way. The gun play doesn't feel as good and the combat encounters are so much less dynamic as the enemies seem completely mindless from everything I've played and seen. The multiplayer wasn't fun as it was stuck in a no mans land between CoD and Halo. Story wise and delivery, at least it felt like someone was trying with Halo. Mission design, it also feels more sterile but I don't really know why. It might mostly have to do with level design as the destiny planets just feel like fancy combat arenas. RPG elements are also lack luster, so they don't really make up for the other short comings. Skills and leveling seem pretty inconsequential. Loot has no variety, every person I've watched may as well have been using the same three or four primary weapons.
