Did You Know?


Despite being set in a section of Manhattan, New York, the NYC is considerably smaller than the actual NYC as several streets have been removed and landmarks moved closer together. This was done presumably to keep the game map large and with plenty of landmarks, rather than monotonous rows of streets. See more »

Average game done good
27 April 2016 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"The Division" (2016) is probably the first game i have ever bought right on it's release. I own like 5 legal games to say honestly (Diablo 3 included). I paid 41 EUR for it. When the first reviews came out just a couple of days before buying this game, they were all raving about how brilliant this game is. So after spending 103 hours in it (currently as i'm writing this review), i can safely say to You - this isn't a brilliant game. This isn't even a great game. "The Division" is a very average game made at it best. This is it - "The Division" is average game done at it's very best. By this time patch for incursion has already have been made. At this time i have done 100% story, i have done every single side quest, every encounter and found all collectibles. My current gear status is 190.

While i loved the main plot, the way it is presented in this game is below average. Each and every dialog in this game is absolutely average. Every phone recording is very uninvolving. The videos were OK. The main story is presented not interestingly at all. The characters in this game are below average. I couldn't remember their names nor who they were - i just didn't really care.

The shooting mechanics are very good in here. Shotouts are excellent, you can even feel some "Heat" like shootouts in the middle of downtown. Loot is also great. There are tons talent, perks and etc. So RPG mechanics are the highlight of this game. Music was OK, nothing special, as well as voice acting. This game in some sort reminded my of Diablo 3 - after you beat everything, there is also much of re playability here, because after you will finish main story, new possibilities for new gear are there.

The other very good thing about this game is "The Dark Zone". Basically this is PVP arena where you can shoot other agents and pick-up their loot, or what it's most fun about it you can go with friend to shoot tough enemies (or kill some rogue agents) to find some great loot. This place itself is the probably the highlight of this game. At each and every step you can feel tension, because in order to own loot found it this zone you have to extract it first - just don't think that other players won't have an idea of shooting you during the extraction or earlier - this is in our nature. "The Dark Zone" is the place where "The Division" truly shines.

Overall, "The Division" is kinda mixed bag for me. While the story didn't work at all, and there are many many things that could have been done much, much better, still this is a good game. Not great by any means (so far at least, because there are still 2 major expansions on the way). The main ingredients for excellent online based RPG shooter are here, and as goes for shooting itself, RPG elements and loot they are pretty great. But everything else (especialy quest, storytelling) are average at their best. I can't recommend to buy this game right now, probably wait for half or even a year, after Ubisoft will deliver every patch and expansion and the price will drop, then yes, it will be experience worth the lower price. Still, this isn't a letdown, this is fun game, which could have been so much better.
