I did immediately think Halo upon starting the game, but as you progress it feels less and less like it

Exactly how I feel
Playing Witcher 2, Hitman Blood Money, Thief
Anticipating Destiny, AC Unity, Halo MC Collection

For me, it plays like Borderlands in PvE and PvP feels like CoD.

The sci-fi aesthetic of the world and enemies definitely reminds me of Halo.

Still, I didn't much get hooked with Borderlands. I beat them and had fun, but my interest in them dipped quick after beating it once. I feel as if the same would happen with Destiny.

Because it doesn't.

This. It really doesn't play anything like Halo. At all. It feels much more like Borderlands.

This coming from a PS3/4 Xbox 360/One owner. I have no agenda and am not solely an Xbox fan. It plays nothing like Halo.

Exactly how I feel. As soon as I started playing the beta, I was amazed and completely in shock at how the game played nothing like Halo.

Yes, because Halo had ADS.

Just because it was made by the same company it doesn't mean it will feel the same

This seriously feels like a Borderlands clone

The game is way clunkier and disconnected than Halo. You don't get anywhere near the same sensation of shooting something.

feels a lot better than halo and plays better, imo. I could even use some of the same tactics in halo in destiny, which kinda owns. I just think xbone fanboys are upset because bungie has been marketing destiny for ps4 more than their beloved. I believe bungie did a great job. Destiny is pretty much the halo successor. Haters gonna hate.

Xbox fanboys have disowned Bungie. They feel betrayed that Destiny is a multi platform game.

the only thing that reminded me of halo during the beat was that the fallen scavengers looked similar to Promethean Knights from halo 4 other than that nothing like halo
