Just a short while back, we recommended that you not put too much stock in early Destiny reviews.
Now, Bungie is essentially saying the same thing, only they're wording it somewhat differently. As Bungie community manager David "Deej" Dague said in the latest Weekly Update , they expect to see day-one reviews from critics who haven't spent enough time with the game:
"We fully anticipate seeing day one reviews from folks who decide to kick the tires, but don’t have the time or patience to take our ride for a nice, long road trip. Some of you might wait to pick up a copy until you read the final verdict from your most trusted review house. We’re okay with that. We’ve created something we’re proud of."
Dague added that Destiny "really begins" once you hit the level cap of 20, because then you can keep improving your Guardian by locating better gear and taking on the exceedingly difficult end-game raids. Bungie has already made it clear that if you wish to complete these missions, you'll need to team up with equally powerful friends.
Of course, with an ongoing shared-world experience, one that will supposedly receive plenty of support for many years to come, one just accepts that what we see right out of the gate isn't the whole story. That's only logical.
