Bungie continues to improve its shooter MMO with the best story campaign it has yet produced and a whole lot of great additional content to keep players engaged.

9.5/10

The highest compliment I can give any game is when I have to force myself to put the controller down to put my thoughts in a review. Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is that game. Somehow Bungie took a game that I play daily, for hours a week, and made me want to play it more. It’s always good getting new content with seasons and past expansions, and I have loved all Destiny 2 additions. However, The Witch Queen feels like we have entered a new age. The Witch Queen has proven that no one is better than Bungie at what they do. The Witch Queen takes every aspect of Destiny and improves on it, and then some. While Destiny is always getting better, The Witch Queen is the best piece of Destiny content ever created.

I’ll be playing The Witch Queen every day leading up to the raid on March 5 and will undoubtedly have more to say once I’ve seen everything this already fantastic expansion has to offer. Look for our final review once I’ve had a chance to conquer what is sure to be The Witch Queen’s most daunting challenge, even after a campaign full of them.
