  3. Does Destiny play a lot like the Borderlands games?

I didn't get a chance to check out the beta, but I am reading online that Destiny has a lot in common with the Borderlands games, in that you accomplish missions as a group, or solo, and then find loot to upgrade your gear that you must split with your party. If so, I might pass on this game. Borderlands wasn't the most appealing game for a single player gamer. It got quite repetitive. I was hoping Destiny was like an online Halo since it is being created by Bungie. Such a disappointment. :(

It's a looter shooter but tonally it's vastly different.

I'd say it's more Halo Online with some Borderlands elements than a Borderlands Online with some Halo elements.

It doesn't have the charming characters, loot focus, or crazy artwork.

Also you would need to add a dozen random people being added to your game.

Plays like a poor man's Borderlands 2.

The shooting aspect is more like Call of Duty. It tries to put in Borderland like abilities, but it fails to put it in properly I think.

Meh...all of these replies make the game sound so unappealing. I think I will wait during a summer drought before I consider picking up.

Thanks for the replies guys. :)

Very very fun game. Barely any loot though, more like a more open world Halo with borderlands elements.

It plays exactly like Borderlands, if it were anything like Borderlands.

IMO, it's a bare bone hybrid of ME, Halo, and sure, BL. The sub-parts feel incomplete, and the whole is just meh.
