Tom Clancy’s The Division
Ubisoft brought back one of the most critically acclaimed action game series in a bold new entry with Tom Clancy's The Division for the PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2016. After the company presented the game back in the 2013's E3, the game went through several downgrades before seeing the light of day.
We're here to talk about this title and find out if it was worth the wait and so many downgrades. There are plenty of negative things coming from changing your release date for such a long time, but it can also be a great choice. So, let's start talking about Tom Clancy's The Division.
About the game
New York's under attack by a vicious epidemic that pretty much destroys it all. Here we play the role of a member of The Division, special undercover agents in society prepared to act in these emergency cases. We have the mission to infiltrate in center Manhattan and help the survival civilians, but we'll have to find out what happened to the disappeared first wave of The Division.
We are also tasked with researching who's behind the creation of the virus and this whole biological warfare. The destroyed city is full of mysteries and dangers all around, and we have a ton of missions to complete before finishing this story, but the whole gameplay has a twist to it.
Believe it or not, the game is loosely based on real events. After the attacks of 9/11, the US Government evaluated what the situation would be if faced by biological warfare in the mainland US.
A new experience
While Tom Clancy's The Division's main story may not be the best around, there are plenty of interesting aspects to consider in this game. The title is a bold change from the average Tom Clancy game experience. To start off, we're talking about an always-online title, an MMO to say so. This Massive Multiplayer Online game, plays a lot like the Gears of War series, a 3rd Person shooter. Takes many positive things from games like Destiny and adds a lot of online content similar to Warframe in some ways.
Many games disappoint after making the players wait for so long before finally launching, but that's not the case with Tom Clancy's The Division. Sure, some visual downgrades took place to ensure the game playability, but The Division still looks amazing. This thrilling game will bring you many hours of fun both multiplayer or playing by yourself. The biggest downside to the whole experience is definitely the always-online requirement. But once you get past that, it's one of the best game experiences in the Tom Clancy series, and one of the most original action titles of its year.
Graphics and Visuals: Tom Clancy's The Division went through several redesigns when it comes to the visual aspect. But after all that, it delivered amazing results. A visually stunning title with amazing effects. The thrilling setting and game world looks and feels realistic. Thanks to the amazing effects, you'll feel like you're playing an action movie.
Gameplay: The main "story" of the game isn't complicated, but it's very exciting. The overall experience of the game is widely enhanced when you play it in multiplayer mode. Play along with your squad to enjoy more chaotic and exciting missions. Even though the enemies might feel dull and boring when you start up, later on, they'll upgrade as you do. And if you add the amazing multiplayer mode of this title, it becomes a really challenging title. The customization goes beyond choosing how your character looks. You must choose different abilities, weapons and special equipment that will change the way you play the game. Balance your squad and get ready for some action.
Sound: Sadly the soundtrack here isn't nearly as exciting as the rest of the game. While it does a great job to fill the space and complete the whole atmosphere, it's easy to completely ignore it. Sometimes you even end up forgetting there's any soundtrack at all. There are some sound issues, they fixed them later on. The voice acting is great and adds to the whole game experience.
