While the virus has been contained, its effects are most evident in the devastated streets of the nation's capital where survivors cling to hope and struggle to rebuild. Enter The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents who now must work to stop enemy factions from completely taking over the city – and ultimately, the nation. As a universally-regarded seat of power, if D.C. falls, the nation falls. With civilians helpless and fearing for their lives, players will be the last line of defense in preventing the total collapse of society. [Ubisoft] Expand

    The Division 2 is exactly what the fans wanted from the first game. It's bigger, has much more content, and with laser accuracy focuses on hardcore players who spend hours in the end-game. [Issue#294]

    The Division 2 is a substantial evolution on the mechanics of the first game, with a more immersive world to boot. This is an impressively complete game, with heaps to offer players across all of its content prongs and a level of polish that belies the size of the game’s open world. Sure, it’s story is utterly forgetful to the point where you may not even realise it has one, but all the other components have been tuned to near-perfection.

    The Division 2 is one of the best looter shooter games available, and puts other to shame. This sequel is perfectly built on original by implementing and perfecting ideas that work fantastically in post-apocalyptic Washington D.C.

    For those who finished the first Division game, this second episode will probably lack some new and exclusive features. That being said, The Division 2 is definately a great game that mixes polished gameplay and a huge amount of content, especially for the end game.

    This is a case study in how to get it right the first time - and, finally, students of this genre will discover what happens when devs don't have to spend the first 12 months of a loot game's life knocking it into shape. For one, the future looks bright. [Issue#332, p.108]

    Recent games have reminded me that sometimes great execution is better than a noble failure, and The Division 2 executes on its concept with finesse. The story is lackluster, and the real-world aesthetic will turn of some players, but it doesn't matter because the core and flow of this looter shooter is great. There are something things that could be tweaked, like enemy density and their ability to one-shot you, but overall The Division 2 is a sequel done right.

    An improvement over its predecessor, with visuals that wow. Occasionally repetitive combat and an unengaging story are the main flaws that might deter budget-conscious gamers from buying at full price.

    There's an enormous amount of replayability and so much content. I had high expectations for this game and somehow it's even better than I'd imagined. Highly recommended for fans of looter shooters :).

It feels as a step forward, is better than the first game in every way. It has a LOT of content day 1, has every improvement made to the first one over its lifespan. If you like the setting and the looting shooting you will love it. I'm giving it a 10 not because its a perfect game for everyone to play, I'm giving it a 10 because it's perfect for it's audience and sets the bar up for releases of this genre after so many mediocre ones.

But this game offers A LOT of content, challenging levels, and fair loot drops. This game is just amazing when playing with a group of friends. Playing alone is difficult so I recommend finding a few friends. Teamwork goes a long way! The only issues I have with the game is the average story telling and quality of life bugs. Expand

NPCs are pretty much garbage, often taking cover in the same spot I am despite there being no room. A normal player can't do this and an NPC doing this locks you in place unable to move until you get out of cover which is great for shooter game. Even some of the cover you use like cement chest high walls your character is too stupid to shoot over and raises it the same height as every other wall often forcing you out of cover to shoot over the damn thing. I only bought it because it was on sale for 5$ and I still feel ripped off. Avoid this game, it isn't worth a dime. Expand

Quit a month ago when they nerfed everything into the ground, destroyed their item drops (you can farm for 6 hours and not get a single item that's useful), and generally made the game unfun... Tried again today, still unfun. Checked out their reddit and Test Server patch notes... guess what? More nerfing crap to the ground... The first month of the game would have gotten a 10 from me... I was playing nonstop, it was so much fun, lots to do and the game felt rewarding... now, I'd rather watch scrubs for the 47th time than play this game.... Good job massive, you took a great game and crapped all over it. Expand
