    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!

Graphics and sound all great but the fun is getting in teams and completing missions or just getting into gun fights. As former military its actually funny how you can use flanking and supressing your enemy to gain an advantage. Is it super realistic? No. Are there some elements that need refining? Yes. But this is a game with plenty of content and fun. 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!

The game itself has aAfter having spent a while reading the negative reviews I feel compelled to set the record straight on TC: The Division. The game itself has a very solid base, and contrary to the negative reviews (people who seem to have played for all of an hour) the game is absolutely LOADED with content and story. The story is average so dont expect a Mass Effect 2 or anything, but it is there and its easy to follow. The game itself (an MMORPG Shooter) is simple to pickup and understand, the game has very user friendly systems. The loot system itself is a fun one, as you will constantly find gear better than your current kit to upgrade with, which gives players a reason to keep grinding. Expand

    Что ж ты опер сдал назад? Не по рангу я тебе? (Tom Clancy's The Division)

    Беря в руки контроллер когда садишься за TCTD, необходимо свыкнуться с мыслью, что игра – это одна сплошная УСЛОВНОСТЬ! Если с самого начала попытаться выйти за грани задуманного разрабами жанра и пытаться играть в «шутан», то УСЛОВНОСТЬ выбьет из вас дурь в первые же минуты. Личный опыт не решает ровным счётом ничего! Все бои в большинстве своём зависят от числовых параметров надетой на опера снаряги, правильно подобранных талантов и особых умений за счёт развития собственной базы! Про аутентичность происходящего в игре коллапса и про передачу настроения в гнеющем городе говорить трудно. Многочисленные аудио файлы не всегда передают всю безысходность застрявших в обречённом NY неписей, а враги с которыми предстоит биться из-за всё той же условности не могут казырнуть чем то-особенным! Животный мир TD полностью статичен и не представляет никакой угрозы! И только выверенный стиль эхо записей может как-то сблизить геймера с игрой, но ровно до момента вылозки в безжалостную ЧЗ, где 1ка=

Sloppy, unresponsive controls and wildly unbalanced shooting. It takes 30+ shots to kill an enemy at point blank range but they get you with a single shot from half a world away. You never even get to see the pixel that the shot came from. Hugely long checkpoints mean interminable repeats of the same scene, over and over and over again. There is no story and the game play is hordes of unkillable enemies, an even more immortal boss, die lots of times. Then do it all again on the next scene, and the next and the next...

    Games are supposed to be fun and this game just isn't and it ended up in my garbage pretty quickly.
