Over the course of your Guardianís confusing, muddled adventure through the first half of the Solar System, you probably heard the name Crota come up once or twice. The Hive god has been burrowed away in hibernation for generations, and heís primed to make a return. However, with the help of veteran Eris Morn, the Guardians are primed to combat the new menace and put it down for good.
If youíre hoping for The Dark Below to rise above the abysmal storytelling this game has become infamous for, your hopes are in vain. Thereís a lot of potential; Eris Morn has become so corrupted by her experiences with the Darkness that her eyes literally leak the stuff. Alien mythology should be inherently interesting. But this is DestinyÖ
Three story missions. One Strike. One Raid. Thatís the depth and breadth of everything The Dark Below has to offer in terms of base PvE content. And for the most part, it smacks of laziness. If you were hoping for something that would at least fool you into thinking that youíd never seen it before, youíll be disappointed for the most part. Nothing feels new; in fact, youíre mainly sent into the same areas to kill the same old baddies and farm the same old resources. Crota's End, the raid, comes as close as Destiny has ever been to being a riot, but it can't save The Dark Below from being the atrocious value that it is.
