    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.

    This game really deserves two scores. Co-Op with friends, and Solo. Co-Op is what I am scoring. With a group of friends, this game isThis game really deserves two scores. 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.

But that doesn't mean it's a bad game. OH come on ! what happened to people? Play the game if you like the genre and the lore , Don't, if you don't. That's that, I give this a solid 7 cuz it deserves that much at the very least. Still , it's a good game to try if you like RPGs or destiny-ish looking games :) Expand

    The Division is one of the new half MMO half shooter games akin to Destiny. The game is fun enough to play but has a very boring open worldThe Division is one of the new half MMO half shooter games akin to Destiny. The game is fun enough to play but has a very boring open world with many repetitive tasks to do. Destiny had this issue as well but what kept me invested in Destiny The Division lacks. Destiny had exceptional music and design throughout but The Division has boring music and boring art direction. Playing the game becomes boring quickly if you are not doing a main story quest or playing with your friends in the dark zone. The dark zone is the best part of the game but also its major downfall. The dark zone is really the only endgame activity and it gets boring very quick. Destiny had the raids which were designed well and kept you engaged throughout. The Division is fun to play but lacks the hooks to keep me playing. Expand
