A devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, a classified unit of self-supported tactical agents, is activated.
Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, The Division XBOX ONE agents are trained to operate independently of command, as all else fails. Fighting to prevent the fall of society, the agents will find themselves caught up in an epic conspiracy, forced to combat not only the effects of a manmade virus, but also the rising threat of those behind it. When everything collapses, your mission begins.
A successful TPS, RPG and online open word mix, with a balanced, spot-on gameplay and lots of details in a visually stunning - and packed full of dramatic stories - Manhattan. The Division offers something for any kind of player, be it a lone wolf, a co-op lover or a competitive gamer, with lots of things to do and great satisfactions due to the deep loot and character evolution system.
Where many open-world games present large stretches of the map that are unremarkable filler, The Division is dense with tiny details that make every corner of the city interesting.
The Division is a beautiful start for a project that will have to show in the next months it can convince players to keep playing it thanks to a constant flow of new contents for the end game. Only time will tell us if Ubisoft and Massive have done the perfect job.
The Division offers a beautiful and realistic world which is greatly supported by fun and well-balanced gameplay with lots of variety in skills and weapons. But for now the game lacks high level content, making the experience a bit repetitive in the end.
I would not say it’s the best shooter I’ve played on the Xbox One, nor is it a huge leap forward in video gaming as a whole, but I’ll be damned if I’m not having fun with it.
If you can accept its myriad tonal inconsistencies and buy into the bullet-sponge combat, The Division is an intriguing social shooter that taps into the addictiveness of loot grinding in a novel setting.
It's a squad-based game that just happens to take place in an open world, and that's basically it. I don't see Division lasting as long as other, similar games either months down the line, as it simply doesn't allow for anything on a raid-like level to truly hook in the dedicated crowd.
