Destiny: The Taken King expands on the original award-winning game, and continues to offer a wide-variety of gameplay for teens and adults alike:
“A dark shadow has fallen over our worlds. Oryx, The Taken King, is hell-bent on vengeance and is raising an army of corrupted “Taken” forces by manipulating the Darkness itself. You must find a way into his impenetrable Dreadnaught ship to defeat The Taken King before he and his dark army consume our civilization and bring our solar system to ruin.”
The Legendary Edition of the game offers the best value, giving players the complete Destiny experience, which includes a copy of the original Destiny, Expansion I, Expansion II and The Taken King. This complete collection offers new players a perfect, affordable way to jump into Destiny, or veteran Guardians more opportunities to carve their legends in the stars.
“Destiny: The Taken King, the next great adventure in the first person shooter Destiny universe, introduces a new story campaign and quests, new enemies to fight, new locations to explore, new Strikes and Crucible maps, a new Raid that will put players to the ultimate test, and more. To stand up to the challenge, players will have access to three new devastating Guardian subclasses, and a massive arsenal of weapons, armor, and gear.”

One of my son’s first “T” games was Destiny, so when this new one was announced he begged me to order it for him. He did not know I had already asked my friends at Activision for a review copy!
He returned from camp in the middle of August and started asking when it would come, could I get a download, do we need to pre-order, he was a little obsessed. And then it was delivered Monday afternoon.
He immediately slipped the disk into our Xbox 360 and started contacting his friends, did they have it, where they getting it, had they pre-ordered it? Still obsessed.
And as I write this review, it is a vacation day from school. He woke up and went right for the game. His homework is done, we are very early in the semester, so I am OK with him playing extra hours on his Xbox, something I am very strict about during the school year. His cut off is 2 pm, at which point I have to feed him, he has been playing for five straight hours. He was also very excited about the above weapons packed that was included.
He is not the most verbose 12 year old, but he knows what he likes, and he is thrilled with this new game in the Destiny franchise!
My son recommends this game. For more info please visit Destiny!
