The beta is in full swing and if we take a step back and assess, what do we see?

Do we think this test is having an overwhelmingly positive impact on the already insane hype? Are people even more excited? Have expectations actually grown in the past few days?

Or rather, is it having the opposite effect? Are some testers simply saying it's nothing more than a simple blend of Halo and Borderlands ? Don't forget that anticipation for this game was through the roof heading into the beta, so expectations were already sky-high. Thus far, most gamers seem quite please with what they've seen, but we'll probably have to wait for the full-fledged analyses. The beta is over on July 29; after that, you'll start seeing a flood of feedback.

It's always interesting to see the public's creation to a beta test. Many don't quite understand that it's just that – a test – while others honestly believe they're playing the final version of a game (sad but true). However, those in-the-know are definitely picking this game apart already, and the result is a series of moderately interesting debates concerning the game's current polish level and overall potential.

What say you?

I've heard and seen nothing but people playing the Beta, almost non-stop. Personal friends of mine who play those types of games are having a blast with it. A friend of mine's girlfriend who doesn't enjoy anything but Little Big Planet, is having an easy transition into the world of Destiny.

As for me, meh. It's going to be a fun game for sure, but I'm not all that thrilled about it. I'll play it sometime but from what little I've played it's not sucking me in with deep lore or anything that pushes me to be excited for something. No disrespect to the game, because it is a lot of fun. It's just not for me.

What kind of "deep lore" did you expect from a Beta?

I'm all types of excited for this game just from the beta so I can only imagine that hopefully the full game expands on my excitement

Only bad things about Destiny and the Beta is that I am unable to play now and it will end.

The Beta confirmed that this is not for me.

I'm going to cancel my preorder.

Some of my friends are thinking we hope it's different on each planet. Some feel it's go to planet kill loads of bad guys/fallen. Kill the big boss rinse and repeat some have said while it's fun their concern is will there be more to it. Myself I'll either get it day 1 or wait on reviews. I do like the look of it a lot. I'm just not 100% convinced.

I am loving the beta and I cant wait to play the final build. The game is awesome and I have not found anything about it that I dont like. This is how a FPS should be done.

I understood that Destiny was "Halo for Playstation owners". After playing the Alpha, I was heavily swayed. Now that I've played the beta I am completely sold. "simply Halo meets Borderlands"…Ha! Like that's a "simply". Destiny is the best shooter of the last ten years bu only because it's not just a shooter.
