What are your thoughts guys?

I will leave mine until I've had another session tonight, but I have a lot to say on it and it's not all great. It good, but it's not great.

I have a lot of dumb questions as well.

Only played an hour or so in co-op with Jools and Granite and haven't explored anything beyond the beta as yet. Hearing it's quite repetitive, but I plan to take my time with it so hopefully that won't be too much of an issue.

its greater than the sum of its parts but is seriously lacking in the narrative department :-( also having to go to bungie website or the app the read the cards is foolish.

I've only played around 4 hours and mostly enjoyed the Patrol Mission where I spent most of my time.

Really disappointed with the lack of narrative and is very much like Titanfall in that respect and why I'll probably not play it long term as I love heavy story in a game and a sci fi story with no real story driven elements is a huge disappointment.

I love the ability to switch between game modes seamlessly; it's great to get bored doing patrol and within a couple of button presses you're in the competitive multiplayer and then when you get bored you can continue the story just as easy!

Very strange so far and do hope I don't get bored due to the repetitive nature as I am enjoying the overall offering so far!

The level cap also seems really strange too - stops at 20 but you still level up after?

Also don't like the straightforward leveling system as I thought I'd have more choice and customization but you simply seem to get the next perk rather than having a choice how you build your character.

Am I stupid for not being able to figure out how to access this ps4-exclusive* stuff? I want my hunter to have that sweet-ass camo cape but I haven't got a clue :oops:

I'm not playing on the PS4 but surely should just appear in the mailbox or something?

Apparently they are unlocked in the exclusive strike mission (Dust Strike on Mars)

I've only managed to get it installed. I am hoping I'll be able to get some play on it either tonight or for an hour or so on Sunday

Aren't Strike missions end game content or, at least, higher level content? So it's exclusive but you can't unlock until you're nearly ready to put the game down? That sucks

I've had a *quick* look about the web (like three different sites or something) and it turns out that even though they're exclusive and available from the off, you can't use them until you get past level 20. There are probably more requirements but that put me off.
