It’s the solid follow-up to a thoroughly disappointing first expansion—just as House of Wolves was to The Dark Below for the first Destiny.
Said story sees the big robot brain under assault by a magic space worm.
He calls for the aid of Ana Bray, a superpowered space zombie that has begun to remember her first life during Earth's golden age.
It’s a pretty compelling backdrop, especially for anybody who, like me, pored over the first game’s wikis and Grimoire Card lore.
That mistrust is a bit odd, given that Destiny 2 is narratively and mechanically about collecting otherworldly weapons.
You move through new zones killing things with what is still possibly the most rhythmic action to be found in current first-person shooters.
