VIDEO GAME REVIEW
THE DIVISION 2
(PS4/X1/PC) OUT NOW
This ever-evolving multi-player ‘shoot and loot’ experience is one of the more complete games of its ilk released at launch – and on a personal level is up there with the likes of Destiny.
This Tom Clancy-inspired tactical actioner is set in Washington DC, seven months after a deadly virus was unleashed in New York – which has left the nation in chaos. While the virus has been contained its effects are evident in the devastated streets of the capital, where survivors struggle to rebuild – and hope is diminishing.
Enter The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents, who must work together to stop enemy factions from taking over the city, and then potentially the nation – which could lead to a total collapse of society.
With free content added to this dynamic open world – and the ability to play alone or with three other friends in a 40-hour campaign – there are a plethora of challenges, along with revamped PvP gameplay in the Dark Zone.
It may be a touch repetitive, but for the sum of its part, does far more rights than wrongs – and is a league above similar competition at this stage of its life cycle.
