    So what is Tom Clancy's The Division? Addictive action RPG in a beautiful coat that grabs you and doesn´t let go. [Issue#263]

    An immensely thrilling action-MMO hybrid, but good for 30 hours rather than the hoped-for 300. [May 2016, p.70]

    This game that could've gone so wrong, so easily, is already off to a great start with more content both free and paid set to come over the next year.

    The Division is a very good game. Mixing singleplayer and multiplayer in a splendid New York setting, the map offers plenty of content and the Dark zone is a really nice PVP/PVE place to play. The gameplay is simple, the AI is far from good, but the entire experience is a must.

    I may wish a plague of locusts on Ubisoft support, but I tip my hat to the masters over at Massive Entertainment.

    Fun for a while, but less than the sum of its parts. [Issue#250, p.57]

    I don’t think it’s very good, especially if you’ve a mind to play by yourself. It’s certainly addictive, and it certainly has plenty of stuff for you to do. That goes doubly for people who plan to roll with a squad of friends. As in Borderlands, the general tedium of loot-grinding is more fun when you’ve got people to chat with. If you’re looking for a mindless way to kill a few days/weeks, The Division exists...But don’t expect to remember much of it when it’s over.

The graphics are ridiculously good and the atmosphere in the city transfers well to the player. The game mechanics work good, the game is optimized well and has a lot of configuration options. I'd even say that technically, it's one of the best games I've seen. It's a good shooter, coop is fun and all is good so far.

    At this point you could say I got my money's worth and I did, but this game was advertised as an MMO shooter and once you hit a high level, there's no reason to continue playing, because there's nothing left to do except grinding in the dark zone and do repetitive daily missions.

    The game also has some serious issues with cheaters, because so much of it is client-side.

    The Division has unbelievable potential, but a poor delivery in some areas. I still enjoyed the time I played, but lost interest too much to buy any extra content.

    UPDATE: With the recent patches (1.5) a lot of the game's issues have been improved and the game is really enjoyable. There's a scalable difficulty, good item progression, more activities and even performance and UI improvements. It's good to see that they keep improving the game and fixing stuff.

    Una de las grandes novedades de este 2016 y es que con el juego te metes de lleno en la ciudad, una ciudad muy viva con mucho que enseñar. SeUna de las grandes novedades de este 2016 y es que con el juego te metes de lleno en la ciudad, una ciudad muy viva con mucho que enseñar. Se agradece que vayas por la ciudad y veas gente peleándose por comida o personas hablando desde sus casas, hace que de verdad veas una ciudad pos-apocaliptica. Massive Entertainment ha conseguido unir el shooter con el rpg y de muy buena forma, aún así os pongo una lista de lo positivo y lo negativo:

    Positivo:
    +Grandes gráficos y físicas (se que no es como los del E3, pero no por ello vamos a decir que gráficamente es una basura)
    +Variedad de armas y modificaciones
    +Ambientación
    +Combates tanto PVE como PVP
    +Optimización

    Contras:
    -La IA en algunas ocasiones se le ve un poco tonta (en otras ocasiones piensan y todo)
    -El editor de personajes...
    -Los servidores de Ubisoft no han podido cumplir con el lanzamiento

    Si es cierto que puede a llegar a cansar porque las misiones pueden ser repetitivas, pero jugando con amigos se disfruta mucho más.

    En cuanto a la optimización va de fabula (i5+970+16gb), por ahora no he tenido ningún problema y si es cierto que algunos se quejan porque no les va bien pero es que algunos piden que les vaya incluso con una tostadora en ultra. Sobre los servidores y los trolls que vemos por los servidores... mejor no opinar pero meterle nota negativa por eso... Y por ultimo no pasa nada que se tenga que jugar por Uplay, que la plataforma va muy y ha mejorado mucho, no todo es Steam.

    Very enjoyable game thus far. I have leveled to level 8 and will update this as I go on. It starts out with a great story that is somethingVery enjoyable game thus far. I have leveled to level 8 and will update this as I go on. It starts out with a great story that is something that could happen concerning a virus. The first I would say 4 levels are to get you accustomed to key bindings and controls. As well as how the mechanics of the game work. This game reminds me of Destiny meets maybe a socomish open world game. The group matchmaking is super easy and makes it very easy to travel to your peers and level together. Some of the missions which I consider like instances in wow... are extremely difficult and with a group you can heal each other and revive each other but if by yourself you start over. So def a game to play with peers. Boss fights are tough.. take thought.. not just run and gun as you will get one shot in cases. You can level your base up which unlucks new skills and perks. There is a so called talent tree which can be dps, tank, and heals essentially. This is the most satisfying shooter I have played in years and by far most satisfying MMO style shooter. Get this game.. Will update as I level. Have fun. look me up. xfeer on uplay Expand

    This game is filled with bug and the developers don't even care of fixing it.
