DestinyQuest: Infinite Part 2 Review
DestinyQuest Infinite: Part 2
This is the second part of my review of DestinyQuest Infinite. Check out Part 1 to get a grasp of what I’m talking about. I will be addressing my complaints from the first article, so context will be helpful.
Even More Moderately Entertained
Let’s say the previous game was a true 5/10. Completely average for comparison reasons. I would say this game is a solid 6.5/10. It is a good bit better than the first, but nothing ground breaking as far as game play. I will say the writers seem to be finding more of their groove with this iteration as well.
As far as this second game goes, playability seems to have remained the same. The controls are the same. Combat is the same. Even the maps function the same way. However, I feel like that they still missed some balancing issues. Miss that one opportunity to get some gear good locked in a vault? You will not be able to go back and try again. And you will need that gear to actually get past the current set of missions into the next set. In this regards, I feel like game balance is the biggest let down. It may just be my notoriously bad luck, but I couldn’t get past the second set of missions. I couldn’t. I had what I thought to be some of the best armor upgrades I could get. And I still got beat down.
I could see definite improvements here. I could tell the writer was having more fun crafting the missions. There was this one where, I don’t want to spoil to much, you can tell the story will be about vampires because of all the tropes being tossed around. And guess what? It was totally vampires! Big surprise! Seriously though, while there was a certain feeling of “this is cliché”, I still got a good amount of enjoyment from it. There were even several story elements I genuinely didn’t expect to happen.
Execution of the Goal
Overall, I would have to say that this is, sadly, a lot like in the first article. The story, from what I played, doesn’t really carry well between missions. There are a few elements that tie in (get that dwarf book and herb lore. Trust me), but mostly they are still isolated.
If you enjoyed the first game, you will really enjoy this second chapter. If you only mildly enjoyed this chapter, the first chapter can be skipped but provides the basis of why you are in the current predicament.
