Pure PlayStation: The Division was certainly falsely advertised at some key pre-release moments. It had legitimate problems. But past those issues was an enjoyable third-person shooter romp.
I only bought the division last year. Played it with friends and thought it was decent. Not sure how it was at launch. But I didn't have an issue with it. Got my money's worth out of it. Loads of improvements can be made for The Division 2 though.
I only got the division a few months ago and I really like it I actually think I would have had no problem buying it full price at launch. I'm definitely looking to buy the sequel day 1.
Launch day was really bad, it was broken and buggy. I remember that everyone needed to line up in the game in order to access the laptop.
And that you could block the door to the first building so no one could advance their progression.
@Araragifeels "it was broken and buggy" Sounds like 90% of online games.
At launch there wasn't much content to keep people hooked, the next couple updates killed the only end game activity (crafting) in favor of a heavy grind with no sense of reward, never mind all the bugs. I have to give Massive credit for sticking with the game and fixing all these problems though, the game mechanically/content wise is night & day better. It's a shame it couldn't have been like this at launch but hopefully this leads to the 2nd game launching without all those problems and keeps the player base hooked for longer.
I got it at launch and it was a decent game for a week or 2, after that it got stale fast and I moved on. Never tried it after any of the updates though so it may very well have more depth to it now.
Amazing game cant wait for the second one..not for COD heads
I enjoyed The Division when leveling and doing some of the end game 4 player content, but at time grew on. The gear became boring to farm and everything lead back to the Dark Zone. If they made the game a little crazier on loot, skills and had dedicated classes/specs, it would've been a better RPG. I didn't enjoy farming a set to find out the game play didn't change at all, or the set was lack luster. I would like to see a healing class with hybrid dps spec, a tank class with a hybrid dps spec and a full dps class with close to mid range talents and mid to long range talents.
I got it a year after launch and it was enjoyable. It has its issues but I think Massive has got a winner if they expand on the story. The RPG elements are fine imo
Its actually a decent game with good graphics here is my problem with it. After you complete all the missions and stuff then it just turns into a grind re doing missions trying to get a better gun or better item to make your character better and Im not re playing the same effin mission 20X trying to get that rare backpack or holster. I know there are people who do this constantly and I have a buddy who evertime I log on he's playing The Division grinding his ass off. Who does this ? Well he is also broke and only owns like 5 games maybe thats why. So how do you Improve the Division 2 so its not a damn grindfest ? Easy, you ship the game with a dedicated MP mode but you have to make it seperate from the mission based mode so you dont end up playing against guys who mow you down over and over like in the Darkzone now. If the Division would have featured a dedicated MP mode more people would of stuck around after completing all the missions.
I think an underrated game I have it for Xbox One S and enjoy playing it.
Not really. It was good yet repetitive fun until you maxed out. Then there was no real end game and the Dark Sector was a mess. I hope they don't rush the sequel out the gate like the first game.
Playing it still. On PC maxed out it looks incredible too
The bullet sponge Is my biggest annoyance with this game. Theres zero enjoyment sitting there having to unload mag after mag into a guy wearing a hoodies. And then the circle jerk fest known as dark zone. And he game needs to be classed based Medic, support, tank etc... So it opens the game up more. Cause lets be real allowing people to choose their skills didnt make for role playing since everyone can just be their own medic, everyone was a tank etc...
Are there that many people that discredit it? I thought that general consensus was that the Division was good but people just preferred other titles like PUBG and Fortnite
