Tom Clancy's The Division is an upcoming open world third-person shooter role-playing video game with survival elements.
In the game, a disease that spreads on Black Friday causes the United States Government to collapse in five days; basic services fail one by one, and without access to food or water, the country quickly descends into chaos. In the wake of the devastating pandemic that sweeps through cities across the country, including New York City, it is discovered that the spread of the disease is transmitted through germs on banknotes .
As a last resort, the player is part of a classified unit of self-supported tactical agents, known as the "Strategic Homeland Division (SHD).
If you buy the game and enjoy the story, the side missions, and the world that they created, you're going to have lots of fun. But as soon as you finish the main story, the game gets boring, with a broken pvp and pve endgame content. But I believe that given some time, the game will be great, if you want to buy it now, you'll probably enjoy leveling up, but leave the endgame for later, when the game will probably be more polished than it's now.
I got the game & when I first got I kept hearing of all the glitches & hackers so I was afraid of the Dark Zone but around level 18 I jumped in & haven't looked back. There are a lot of people that don't like this game & that's fine but I happen to like it. The environment is so beautifully done & the story line is current with would might & could happen in our time. There are tonnes of mission & some do repeat themselves & there are plenty of side quest as well. I find however that the loot drops out side the DZ are not up to par & I sell most of my gear or dismantle it for crafting stuff though I've only seen 2 items I really wanted to craft. The Dark Zone (DZ) is where it's at as long as you have a good to great team that actually knows how to communicate with their mics without those 2 things you will die fast unless u know the DZ well & have really kick ass gear & abilities/traits. All I can say is don't let the negative feed back stop you from getting this game because in all honesty it deserves a shot I took a stab in the dark & went for it & soon after I got the Season Pass too.
This was one of my most anticipated games period. Story mode was a lot of fun as was pvp. Until game breaking exploit after exploit coupled with cheaters absolutely destroyed any and all playability. I'd like to think any other major game manufacturer wouldnt have totally discarded all of these bugs/cheat systems for extended periods of time. It killed the experience for myself and a few friends.
With over 400 hours played, I'd say I've pretty much experienced it all in this game. There are two reasons for the score. First, I just really enjoy the game. It might not be for everyone, but I personally really like the style and gameplay. It has PVE if that is what you want, and it has PVP if that is your thing. You want to run around farming without risk? Go for it. You want to be a douche and steal people's hard earned loot? Get to it. You want to farm while risking having some douche run up and steal your loot? Get sneaky and off you go. It had a lot of issues in the first 4-6 weeks, but most of the major glitches and bugs have been fixed, and I don't recall the last hacker I saw in game. Permabans really helped with that. The second reason for my score is that the game is progressing really well with content. The last patch fixed a ton of player complaints (of course being whiny gamers they immediately came up with a bunch more) and the next patch (Underground, first paid DLC) looks amazing. It is obvious that they are working on it, working to improve it, and so far the changes have all been positive (IMHO). Like I said, it's not for everyone. If you don't like Diablo or Destiny, don't waste your time here. It's a grindy, bullet sponge game. If you hate loot grinders, or love COD, might want to pass on this one. But it I would recommend giving it a try, it's actually a fun game. Get some friends, or invite random people in game to play. You'd be surprised how fun it is getting roasted by a giant dude with a gas mask.
Honestly, the game is quite fun with friends. The beginning areas of the game give quite a challenge. However, the game gets repetitive......very repetitive. There were tons of exploits in the game and I believe (as I am writing this review) the major ones are fixed. As far as gameplay goes, the weapons are limited to LMG's, Shotguns, Assault Rifles, Sniper Rifles, SMG's, and a side arm in the form of a pistol or sawed off shotgun. The weapons are not balanced at the moment as most people use either SMG's or Sniper Rifles (maybe an assault rifle or two) the rest get no love. The gear that you can get is pretty random ranging from 0-240 at the moment. The gear piece have different stats that are randomly generated, you can change the stats on your gear but only in one slot (you'd be stuck in that one slot too). The aesthetic items such as clothing have no relevence in the game, which is dull ( the developers should give them more significance). Pretty average to below average. You might get bored after a while. Oh, and bring friends that's really important. If you don't have friends to play with, I wouldn't recommend this game (because random players are unpredictable and unreliable).
