    There's no getting away from the fact The Division is the best open-world that Ubisoft has ever created, while the gameplay is consistently entertaining and cohesive. The deep RPG elements and tactical gunplay just add to that. Plus, the fact you can get so much enjoyment out of being a solo player, with that experience heightened by buddying up, is quite a feat.

    Post-pandemic New York City is a terrifying vision, but it's not one that you’ll likely want to leave for some time.

    Intelligent mechanics, intense gameplay, well thought-out mission structure and plotlines are all winners in our book. Bring on the endgame antics! [May 2016, p70]

    I wouldn’t go so far as to say The Division is the online shooter experience that will usher the genre into a new golden age, but it is a worthy alternative for those who are looking for a more methodical and immersive experience than what games like Destiny can offer. There are still no guarantees about The Division’s long-term sustainability, but the strong out-of-the-gate showing it has already made is certainly a good start.

    The Division is an immersive online action game that delivers an interesting story, impressive environments and great gunplay. The main question is how fun it will be in a month or two, but we have faith in Massive's long-term plans.

    The Division is not a perfect game. There are flaws. But the flaws are mostly because it's straddling genres, and this is also what gives it so many different things to enjoy. There are complicated inventory systems, daft explosives, a big open world to explore, and incredible multiplayer, but you don't need to get invested in any of them to play the game. The Division is not a perfect game, but it's really fun. Which is sort of the point, isn't it?

    Acknowledging its major flaws and noteworthy highlights, the whole of The Division is an average shooting game with online elements, loot progression, and some bugs.

Co-Op with friends, and Solo. Co-Op is what I am scoring. With a group of friends, this game is great. They watch your back, revive you, and in general, make encounters go smoother. As you progress into the Dark Zones, they do the same, and you get strength in numbers.

    Single player, the game is stark, and lonely. They nail that ambiance, but it is not, in my mind, quite as fun. Don't get me wrong, still a very fun game, but it really does shine with 4 people to play with. Even with two it plays well.

    All in all, this is a very solid game, and quite a bit of fun. Something I look forward to playing each day.

    I've played for 3h at the game. It's nothing compared to what they showed us at E3, but the game still looks fine.
    If you like games that you need to increase your level and facilities to beat better enemies, progress your character, and so on, this is yours. It will take some time to max out all the facilities.

    The combination of a shooter and an RPG is well done.

    I didn't have any issues with the online experience.

    The only question that I have is how is the evolution of the game going to be.

    I think that it is a pretty good game.

    La idea de la Zona Oscura me parece brillante pero ha escapado al control debido al abuso de bugs y fallos, si la balancean y le ponen mimo es una idea magnifica.
    El juego tiene bastante contenido y conseguirlo todo no es empresa facil, hay horas y horas por jugar pero como ya digo, la experiencia se puede hacer desesperante en algunos momentos con lags terribles, servidores que se caen, bugs fatidicos en momentos horrorosos y en general mucho fallo para un AAA que llevamos años esperando.

It's not great, but it's not bad either. It's in the middle. And lately Ubisoft has been content with giving people just that. Low enemy variety with repetitive missions don't help either. These Pre-orders are just how Ubisoft is testing waters. If you enjoy what they give you now, they aren't going to work much on it later. Sometimes 'rare' equipment you spend alot of time to get just turn out to be clothing accessories like beanies and hats. I'd personally prefer that stuff to be stocked into micro-transactions since I don't care how my character looks, but I don't want to waste hours to find a new hat!
