Sites are going live with review scores for Destiny in earnest. Is it a sci-fi-high?


Destiny finally has some review scores.

Following the first two ratings from CheatCodeCentral and NZGamer, a slew of outlets gave the Bungie shooter a grade Thursday after it released globally on Tuesday.

CheatCodeCentral went with a 4.5/5 score, while NZGamer furrowed its Antipodean brow with a measly 7/10.

Gamekult added a 6/10 late Thursday.

The CheatCodeCentral and NZGamer ratings were the first on Metacritic and are both related to the PS4 version.

There are still no scores for the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions.

Destiny’s servers weren’t switched on until this Monday at 1pm UK time, meaning there was no space whatsoever for pre-release reviewing.

The latest Bungie release is a large game spanning multiple planets and styles of play, fusing more traditional map-based multiplayer with instances and a social hub, named The Tower.

We’ve been compiling a full Destiny guide as we’ve played this week. You should definitely check it out.

Check out all the scores below.
