The Division isn’t for me.
It’s a very beautiful-looking game. The graphics are fantastic, and the urban environments are very realistic and detailed.
Unfortunately I didn’t see anything new or innovative in the gameplay. The whole time I was playing, I kept thinking, “This plays just like Defiance, and Defiance is free.” The only thing The Division has is the cover mechanic. And the fantastic graphics, of course.
I also couldn’t help but notice that there were very few other people around in this alleged MMO game. Perhaps that’s why they keep talking up the Dark Zone–because that’s the only place that has any people in it?
Anyway, I recorded my impressions in a video.
