While the virus has been contained, its effects are most evident in the devastated streets of the nation's capital where survivors cling to hope and struggle to rebuild. Enter The Division, a unit of civilian sleeper agents who now must work to stop enemy factions from completely taking over the city – and ultimately, the nation. As a universally-regarded seat of power, if D.C. falls, the nation falls. With civilians helpless and fearing for their lives, players will be the last line of defense in preventing the total collapse of society. [Ubisoft] Expand

    I would highly recommend Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 to just about anyone, even if you weren’t a huge fan of the first game. This feels like a much better attempt all around, and certainly scratches the same itch that games like Diablo and Destiny did for me. It also has plenty of initial content to explore, making it feel like a worthwhile purchase while the developer irons out the finer points. So absolutely give The Division 2 a chance, you won’t be disappointed.

    Ubisoft has succeeded in making The Division 2 contents so long and deep to keep us entertained for the whole length of the main campaign, and even after that. The end game is what you could expect: shoot, loot, rinse and repeat, but at least there are many ways to approach it.

    The negatives are vastly outweighed by all the brilliance The Division 2 brings to the table. There's a genuine argument to be made for the game's main campaign as being worth it on its own, far before the endgame gets its hooks in you. That's a genre first.

    Ubisoft Massive learned from its errors in creating The Division 2, which is somehow similar, but bigger and better for the most part.

    The Division 2 improves upon the original in nearly every way, offering a staggering amount of content to engage with. The Dark Zone still stands apart, delivering tense multiplayer scenarios, and the ability to play either solo or co-op is something we don’t take for granted as it’s not always easy to coordinate game time with friends or family. While we’ve grown accustomed to rocky launches from similar games, it’s easy to recommend The Division 2 as it is today, and the year one road map makes us incredibly excited for where the game is heading.

    Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 raises the bar for the looter shooter genre. Put simply, it is the complete package.

    It’s remorseless violence, repetitious and ingrained after only a few hours. The Division 2 becomes a passive activity, blind to basic narrative technique and crass in form. No characters stand out, no personalities prove memorable, while the ultimate purpose seems to only instill an eventual tyranny.

    Having a blast so far. Everything the Division 1 should have been. Gun play feels great, enemies less bullet spongy

    There is so much to do in the Division 2! I really love the variability of the gameplay and the extensive map.

Mejoraron muchas cosas desde el primer juego, incluyendo la forma de disparar y esto ayuda a tener un poco más de realismo, muy buen sonido y gráficos. Los menús siguen siendo un poco complicados, pero luego de ver Anthem, estos son una maravilla. El motor gráfico nos sigue impresionando con sus detalles y la estabilidad de frames, ya que no se requiere de un super PC para poder disfrutarlo. En conclusión un muy buen juego, muy recomendado para aquellos que les gusto el primer juego y para los que quieran probar un nuevo juego de mundo abierto con miles de cosas por hacer y de mucho loot por reclamar. Super recomendado. Expand

"Bullet Sponginess" is definitely reduced (though players will find bossesDivision 2 is similar to the first, but makes notable improvements. "Bullet Sponginess" is definitely reduced (though players will find bosses are somewhat tanky). Quests are longer, and city exploration is encouraged due to new loot materials that help settlements.

    Currently, the game seems a little more challenging. The AI is definitely improved, and actively attempts to flank more frequently than DIvision 1's AI.

    Inventory management is improved, though attachments are potentially one of the only side-grades from Division 1 - each attachment has a positive AND negative effect (almost in equal measure, sometimes). Early on, I've found this sometimes negates bonus to little overall gain.

    When playing with my friend during early access, he made the comment, "This is sort of like the games we used to be excited for." I can't agree more. There's content here. It feels like it's a worthwhile product, right out of the "box."

    If you didn't like Division 1, you won't like Division 2. But it does sound like Massive really listened to the fanbase and made meaningful improvements on their already-existing system. Because the project is attached to Ubisoft, however, expect plenty of illegitimate/fake bomb reviews.

    I definitely recommend this game for people who either liked the later iterations of Division 1 patches, or for those who are looking for a fleshed-out looter shooter!

    Division 2 is everything a sequel should be, it takes what made the original good and improves upon it. Does that make it a GREAT game? NotDivision 2 is everything a sequel should be, it takes what made the original good and improves upon it. Does that make it a GREAT game? Not necessarily.

    The first division despite its flaws is fine. It’s an OK game and so is its sequel.
    It’s the same exact systems, repetitive gameplay mechanics, mission variation, character upgrade, customisation and cool loot drops as the first one, only better.
    If you liked the first division then you’ll probably enjoy this one too.

    People giving this 9s and 10s need to get their head out of their arses. Red Dead 2 is a 9. God of War is a 9.
    Maybe it’s because fans of shooter looters have been getting nothing but crap these past few months, so the first game that comes around that’s actually decent seems like the second coming of Christ.
    and people giving this 1s and 0s just need to grow up and stop carrying on like pork chops.
    Even fallout 76 for all the flak its coping (and rightfully so I’ll add) is still a 3 or 4. Maybe even a 2 if Bethesda really F****d you over.

    Personally I don’t see myself sticking around for the endgame but it was perfectly adequate time waster. If you’ve got a group of friends that are looking blow some sh*t up together then I’d recommend this game to you. If your a bit sceptical just give the game some time to settle in and pick it up when it drops in price.
