The story isn’t really that interesting to me, I like the idea that you play as a guy who used to be part of the freelancers when they were famous but now they’ve kinda fallen from grace and he barely manages to survive.
Well that’s what the story says but it just doesn’t reflect in the gameplay at all, a lot of the side characters are really boring or just annoying and even though the only character that I like, Owen, has a lot of dialogue, it ends up being too much because you just hear a constant stream of dialogue while fighting enemies, so I ended up just not paying attention to most of the stuff they said... The gameplay also gets really repetitive, with missions consisting of secure the area sections followed by find someone followed by defeat enemies and repeat, which kind of reminds me of destiny 1 at launch but that got fixed in year 2 of d1 which gives me hope for this game
From the 6 hours I’ve played today i haven’t really progressed in the loot system so I’m still only getting common and uncommon items, which are just the same guns with different colors
Because I purchased the legion of dawn edition I got a legendary gun and cosmetic armor pieces, which don’t affect gameplay in any way. The legendary gun looks cool but feels exactly, and I mean exactly the same as the starting gun for the storm
Also the story seems to take itself way too seriously, for example: when I was playing with a a friend earlier we played the mission where you get introduced to the main villain, the monitor I think (he looks really cool and sounds absolutely amazing but the name is kind of stupid) and we got in a firefight with his troops who are supposed to be elite troops. The problem was that we wiped the floor with them, but because they’re supposed to be so amazing, Owen kept screaming at us to be careful and not die and please don’t die, just don’t die... even though we didn’t have any sort of problems. It’s hard to describe how easy it was... That being said it is fun to fly around, and feel kind of like iron man (Don’t buy the legion of dawn edition, it’s a waste of 20€/$)
