Just finished up the story of The Division, which was left wide open with no resolution, which as a story driven player I found to be highly unsatisfying and disgustingly insulting to anyone that spent the time to get to the end of the game. Luckily the story is the worst part of the game, the visuals and game play mechanics are top notch and the environments are among the best that I’ve ever encountered in the game. I have hundreds of screenshots of locations and environmental effects that I love to see come up in my random wallpaper swicher. Their use of vertical spaces and set dressing specifically are reasons to get the game. You’ll find winding passages, both above and below ground, that lead to absolutely amazing areas that make logical sense for anyone that’s lived in cities like NYC.
I played on PC (not xbone as the title image would suggest) and do have some significant complaints about that experience, but I’ll save those for future posts.
