Since the launch of Destiny: The Taken King earlier this month, players have taken on Oryx, traveled to the Dreadnaught, mastered new abilities, ventured into the unknown of the new six-player King’s Fall Raid, and more. Following some incredible early impressions at launch, critics have come back with comprehensive reviews that spotlight The Taken King’s new story, depth and breadth of gameplay, and challenging new enemies—to name a few. Check out our round-up of the great reviews for Destiny: The Taken King:

“The Taken King is a testament to Bungie’s craftsmanship and its ability to listen to the feedback from the players”9.5 out of 10 — Game Informer

“Destiny: The Taken King is an awesome upgrade with many quests to keep me busy long after the campaign has ended.” – 9.0 out of 10 — IGN

“The end result is a game that feels quite tight and buttoned-down, and presents a huge amount of content to sample, from its original missions through two content updates to the new story.” – 4.5 out of 5 — USGamer

The Taken King transcends archetypes, and shows signs of humanity in its storytelling.” – 8.0 out of 10  GameSpot

“If you are a new, returning, or current player in Destiny, the Taken King is absolutely worth checking out.” – 8.7 out of 10 — Game Trailers

“If you haven’t played Destiny, now's the time.” –  4.0 out of 5 — Game Revolution

"What new Destiny players will get if they pick up the game's Taken King Legendary Edition…is just staggering." – 5 out of 5 — GamesRadar+

“"Destiny has kept its simple, fluid, and just plain fun controls, but just about everything else has been improved, and there’s a ton of new content to experience." – 4.5 out of 5 — Cheat Code Central

“As satisfying and compelling to a newcomer as I imagine the new content must be to old hats.” – 3.5 out of 4 — The Denver Post

love Destiy it is a great game my favorite game !!!!!

the taken king was barely amusing at best!! They added a little smoke, bleached the same characters and tweaked their look instead of creating a new breed, the made every peice of exotic gear everyone busted their butts to get & made it useless, made everyone pay for content that they had already purchased, added one ability per class & the campaign was a lousy handfull of missions that everyone beat in an hour or so. It literally took longer to download the 2.0 patch than it did to beat the taken king and gp right back into the relentless repetition that was & still is Destiny. Sure it's entertaining for a short amount of time but it will never come anywhere close to Halo, GOW, COD, SKYRIM or any other solid tens.

any chance it is the ONLY game you own? Just asking? 

did anyone who gave the game's scores actually play TTK? Cause they seem to be too nice. Go back play the game & then rate it Again! IGN rates every game the same. I mean come on every game that these developers crap out is not a 4 out of 5 or better. Get real!!!!
