    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.

You can play solo or coop thanks to a very well built matchmaking system that allows you to join any friend of yours or request a group for your current mission.

    The size of the world is superb, and also is its details. There are a lot of secundary missions, looting missions to get points to improve your operation's base in order for your character to improve his habilities, and so on.

    When it comes to improve your arsenal and equipment, it is either fun and gratefull, because you ussually have to complete missions or defeat enemies to get such things, which helps a lot to improve and be able to face stronger enemies.

    I'm having so much fun!

I honestly got this on a whim, hoping it would fill the destiny itch that was left by the great gameplay but skeleton of content, unless you like lag filled PVP because of design choices, but that's a different discussion. My whim was not wrong, and 20 hours in I am beyond entertained. I did not experience any bugs besides some hilarious AI pathing thus far that I've recorded, but this is nothing game breaking. I have also not had any network errors beyond the time they said the servers would be down for maintenance, but this may be in part I also have my Xbox One set on the dmz on my network, because of issues with the aforementioned destiny game. I Did run into the "manhattan area not available" message that nother reviewer mentioned, but it wasn't so much an issue with the game or ubisoft, it was a side ffect of playing a game that wasn't fully downloaded... 25mbps and it was ready in a few hours, it IS a big game, so if you have slow internet, do us all a favor and instead of complaining about how long it takes to download a game this big....go buy the game on disk to save us all the ear/eyeache :) Expand

The game kept me and my friends interested for 6 hours before we knew the time had passed. The loot is akin to traditional MMORPG style games (AKA world of warcraft) where incremental stats make a huge difference over time. The level of skill customization runs pretty deep. Still developing the story but I was hoping for a little more clarity early on which is why i am rating an 9/10 otherwise everything else is fantastic and i would recommend picking up. After my next play through i will probably buy the season pass. Expand

    I've played the tactics / MMO shooter mix Tom Clancy's The Division for 144 hours and I think I can now give my opinion about this game.
    In TC: TD, as an agent of the elite unit division, we save New York, which has been completely emptied by a virus. In the test I will tell if this shooter from Ubisoft is suitable.
    My 8 points rating comes as follows:

    The story never really comes into the air and remains flat until the end.
    This also applies to the main characteristics.
    This is not a spoiler, by the way!
    If you are expecting a film-rich story here, you will be disappointed and should not think about a purchase.

    Despite the bad story, one of the great strengths of the game is the gameplay / gunplay. The game is filled with a gamepad as well as buttonplay super.
    Who likes third-person shooter will be happy here.
    The big But depends on the Grinding that meanwhile is not as essential as before, but still a large part of the Endgames represents.
    A Grinding preference is needed but still to have fun here.
    The Dark Zone is a way to get the best Ingameloot.
    Here you can hunt or spare other players in the team or alone.
    So the PvP area of ​​the game.
    In addition to PvP, there are additional missions and main missions PvE.

    The shooter is based on the SnowDrop engine and this looks great despite the downgrade. New York looks great by day / night by sharp textures and fashionable!

    In the end one can say one thing: Who likes Grinding, Teamplay and graphics will be happy here.
    However, anyone who expects an epic story will be deceived.
    The game is a lot of fun.

    I hope I could help!

    Once I finished the story I really started to get bored, but, overall, it's an OK game. There just wasn't enough of a reward for picking upOnce I finished the story I really started to get bored, but, overall, it's an OK game. There just wasn't enough of a reward for picking up the storyline items like phone recordings and evidence. That made that part of it feel too redundant and a waste of time. The special armor and weapons mods are too few and far and the ability to make items feels underdeveloped and of little to no value. That leaves the Dark Zone, which started out great. But, after I reached DZ rank 30 the entire area started to feel redundant. In fact, the entire game started to feel like I was just doing the same thing over and over again, boring. I would've made Madison square garden a specialty area in the dark zone where 4 on 4 team death matches can take place. There still lots of potential, it just feels underdeveloped unfinished to me. Maybe they tried to do too much? Expand

    Paid nearly £80 to play the prologue. Now I get 'Manhattan content not ready. Time to download 63 hours'

    WHAT IS THIS BS?

    In 30 years of playing computer games I have never experienced such a colossal f*** up!

    Thanks Ubisoft.
