My experiences with the Destiny 2 beta

I booted up Destiny 2 imagining an experience like PUBG: a game that was popular because of its unique gameplay, but expecting a horrible experience otherwise.
I was so wrong!
The game was a pleasant surprise. The UI was amazing and polished for a beta, and it ran really smoothly on my machine with no tweaks. The graphics were breathtaking. I couldn't believe the framerate I was getting with how good the world looked!
The beta features a single-player mission, a co-op mission with a boss fight, and two PvP maps.
Being a PC gamer, I haven't played Destiny 1 and wasn't sure what to expect. The single-player mission felt like I was playing Halo, and the multiplayer PvP felt like a blend of Halo gameplay and Call of Duty.
What impressed me most was the co-op mission. It was like playing a World of Warcraft dungeon designed for Unreal Tournament. The mission's map was MASSIVE, featuring a lot of ground to cover, a lot of mobs to kill, and ridiculously high jumps and areas to travel through. Playing a MMO-like dungeon with FPS controls felt unreal.
The boss fight at the end was epic! And hard! If you didn't plan right or position yourself correctly, you could easily get killed.
I highly recommend the game to anyone who likes multiplayer and FPS games. If you like Halo, Call of Duty, or Mass Effect, you will love this.
Oh, and if you're looking for a clan, try playing with us sometime! ;)
