About two weeks ago Ubisoft rolled out a massive patch for its looter shooter that people were abandoning left and right. Now players are coming back and newcomers are popping up, so how good is it really?
I got it for £12. I like it, and i'm sure i'll easily get value for money, even if it turns out to be repetetive.
Where did you buy it for that price if you don't mind me asking? Actually nvm, just checked Amazon and they have it for a tenner, great last minute not so subtle gift for friends :D
It was on xbox digital store. If you have an xbox you can gift people games. Otherwise go to amazon, cd keys or a search on hotukdeals.
HUKD's great when a bargain pops up, I got GT Sport for just £17 not so long back, unreal!
They lost me the day you could cut the extraction cable in the dark zone. Talk about promoting bad gameplay practices.
I play the dark zone for division tech which you don't have to extract, that's it. The rest of the gear you get just as easily in pve.
Meh- will wait for The Division 2. Its being revealed next year anyway
Bookmark this. Its happening. I know it.
I hope your right, getting back into the original at the moment and I'm impressed with what Ubi have done with the game. If they learn from their mistakes they made with the original, include some of the changes they've made post launch and generally just don't pull a Bungie, it could be something special.
There will be no division 2 next year
It will be revealed next year. Work has already progressed quite far into it.
Why are you lying? There will be no Division 2 next year. Source? No source. lol!! The dev team behind The division is working on a new game "Avatar".
Why would I lie? I've got nothing to gain from telling you. If you think it's a lie then okay..
Septic is mr grinch in disguise lol
This game was such a shame. It needed more variety. All the enemies were just uninteresting people, even the "bosses" were just normal guys with more health. And the Dark Zone was a giant disaster that could have been fantastic. It was a great idea bit poorly implemented. Also, better gear that isn't just jackets and beanies. Me and my friends did have a blast with the co-op tho. I would be interested in a sequel if they address some of these issues.
I always wanted a jump button too.
Would like in #2, that they make specific classes that you pick at the start. Healer, tank and full DPS. All have different talent trees. Healer, buffer, DPS Tank, absorber (redirected damage), DPS Dps: Close quarters, mid range, long range Giving each class a less realistic approach. But healers can heal more often the whole team, tank will get aggro and work specific aggro systems and taunts. It's not fun when 4 guys run Medi boxes that tick every few seconds and the healing injection ability. The rest of the skills felt very under whelming. Some diversity is needed.
Remember the amazing graphical demos? It was going to be revolutionary. And then...we got this.
Funny, just yesterday was telling a buddy I should hop back on just take care of a few things to get my platinum and try out the dlc I never played since I quit the day that dlc1 released.
Got it on the Steam sale and .. yes. I can't speak for the state the game was in at launch, but, the game is a lot of fun now. Been putting a lot of my time into it. Put more time into the game, and its later content, than I did for Destiny 2 .... which just released, even though I bought the Division after I bought Destiny ... But yes, as a late buyer, the game is a lot of fun.
I might have to give it another go the MASSIVE update sizes on pc turned me off from playing it. I spent more time at the download screen then playing the game.
I can only speak for myself, but the game is very absorbing. Gave the free weekend a chance, played through, and, even 15 hours in, having understood the game, I wanted to experience the rest. I wasn't disappointed. With the Steam Winter sale upon us (because that took so long ..), it's realistic that a similar price will be had. Hell, if you want to play from scratch, I'd be happy to join up with ya. Just DM me here.
At launch the game was alright but it had no real end game other than crafting blueprints for Vectors, MP5s, Augs ect. Patch 1.1 was a buggy mess & nerfed crafting into the ground, i can't remember if it was patch 1.2 or 1.3 but it also made the enemies incredibly tanky with the ability to melt you in seconds with the best builds, it pretty much was impossible for single player users to progress without a group. Afterwards the game became much better with each patch, more modes, gear/drops, overhauled difficulty ect
Ubisoft is doing an amazing job at keeping their games relevant and pretty much alive.
Division does so many things better than Destiny expect the one main thing...provide fun. Don’t get me wrong The Division can be a fun game but it’s to grounded in realism which keeps it from being over the top fun like Destiny can be. I only compare these two games because if you played them both you already know the similarities.
I bought Destiny 2 on Amazon for $20, hit max level, and almost got through the main content ... before I got bored, haven't touched the game since I bought Division ... 6 days later. Had it on Steam. Bought it, and the extra content, for less, and put in twice the amount of time, and still want to play more of the game. No. Destiny is a shell of a game. One of the most repetitious gaming experiences I have ever taken part in. It was amazing for a little bit but, sorry, as a long-time fan of Bungie ... this is not Halo. Destiny ... at least the sequel, is not timeless. I do not want to play through the main content time and again. I didn't have the will to do it the first time. And the other content wasn't worth my time either. Division is better than Destiny, even if Destiny 2 came out years after the fact. I'll be fair and give Destiny the time to flesh itself out but, I'm sorry, you're supposed to improve over titles that do the same thing ... not be worse.
I don't know man, your opinion is interesting to me because I really liked The Division and D2. The division was in many ways just a copy of the D1 mechanics, which I loved. But there's no way you can call D2 "repetitive" and leave Division out of that same sentence. Division was repetitive by the second mission, as all areas are the same.and the enemies and bosses are the same. It takes a very similar amount of time to max out level for both games, too. For me, Destiny 2 was fun for about 3 weeks and got old. Division lasted me probably 2 weeks and got old, but played another week or so in the DZ, but ultimately that wasn't enough.
@Racer Destiny has linear progression. Gain a few levels, get a skill. You can only have one subset of a skill at the time. You're switching out gear within an hour, most of the time. They switch up location, but those locations only offer a couple hours of fun at a time. Division always has you working at something. You gain levels, but it's the allocation of different locations, and the beating of missions that dictates your skills. You get a lot of weapons at a time, but, if you enjoy a weapon, the upgrade system allows you to leave it in your inventory for a long time. The upgrade system is leagues above what is offered in Destiny. You use the same, large, location, but it always feels as though you are affecting it. I can't say the same for destiny. At the end of the day, Division always gives you a number of things to work towards. The best Destiny offers is the linear, story-based content, and that can be completed in a couple of days, leaving little else to work towards.
Unrelated why is n4g now a slog of horrible ads.
Getting on my nerves too. Especially when mobile. Did this a while back and then got better again. Guess it's income. But may abandon for a few months if it carries on. Shame - the sniping across the console valley can be funny. And tedious in equal measures. Accusations from zealots in denial that crop up to hunt using the exact same tactics they claim to abhor!
Oh yes, the game is finally in great shape, and the free expansion we got with the last patch was golden.
I'm really enjoying survival mode with a friend. Honestly the game is finally what it should have been. I love it in the XBOX X because loading times are super fast and quick travel actually feels quick. I also like the graphic boosts even though it's not enhanced yet. I always loved this game and wanted it to be more like they promised. If they had the destructible environments and all the things demoed at E3 it would have been perfect. They got the grind done right....
I would kill for real local couch co-op on this. Split screen and it would be a blast.
No.....this game is boring now and only has replay value for people who play these dumbed down releases Let it die....i stopped playing for Damn near a year and came back to people still wearing the exact same gear..... Want longevity for cheap go get warframe or elder scrolls online
I quit due to everything lead to the dark zone as end game content. Even after the underground patch, that content didn't really last long. Want quick gear, go darkzone. Want better drops, go darkzone. Want vendor gear, go dark zone. The game became heavy PvP and I just didn't enjoy that when playing it solo.
Actually the answer for all three of those are Global Events and Incursions. Both PvE oriented.
Incursions were p*ss poor when I was playing. Couldn't be completed easily with pugs. Also the loot was slow compared to doing the darkzone. Could take you 25mins for some pieces of gear. If you ran the higher areas of the darkzone you could get double that in the same amount of time.
Did you ever play a Global Event though? By running any designated mission 2 times you get a Cache that guarantees Classified or Exotic gear, on top of a chance for it to drop during the runs themselves.
Just downloaded again ready for a play through over holiday season, still have some dlc I've never touched
I was wanting something like The Last of Us meets Mass Effect. A huge, story driven, single player RPG. From what I've heard, it's nothing like that.
I’m not sure where you got the idea it was a cross between those games in the first place
Really good. Really really good. My most played game in the last two years and I suck at PVP. Massive have done a fantastic job with all the constant updates.
I go back every now and then....for about 5 minutes. It feels the same, hide behind cover, empty clips and clips into bullet sponges, get trapped in a corner, die a few times, complain, respawn and do it over again. No thank you. I prefer Destiny way more. Bullet Sponges work way better when you can jump around and maneuver like you can in D2. Otherwise I find myself sitting behind cover the whole time. Not to mention Ubisoft.
The Microsoft store has it for $15 for gold members with a free trial and it’s pretty good but I just can’t believe they have an added HDR support yet
Just traded it and got Orange box and Waw , to much menu trash for me been trading down a few modern wardrobe simulators for some older games i owned before.
