    The Division is a funny game to rate. I initially had no interest in this game, but as reviews began pouring in and I took notice of the story and gameplay, it piqued my interest to invest in the purchase. What I found was beyond a pleasant surprise. The balance it has struck in an "MMORPG" style game, but with plenty to play solo is very well done. I had hoped a couple friends might also invest in The Division, but they haven't as of yet. But, here's the thing... Unless you're planning on entering "The Dark Zone" it's unnecessary to group up. Some missions may be more difficult to tackle solo, but through level 15, I've hit everything thrown my way with some challenge, but no major frustration. Certainly, The Dark Zone is where the game wants you to go at some point, but UbiSoft's bugs and issues have been well-documented, and, as a minimum of level 10 is necessary to enter, I've stayed away until they iron things out. The DZ itself has an interesting concept; the best loot and hardest enemies are located there, and the entire zone is multiplayer, friendly-fire enabled. All loot grabbed here is contaminated, and must be airlifted out. Once you've collected your goodies and send up a flare for pick-up, all players in the zone will see said flare, essentially giving away your location and telling all players "here I am, with some great stuff!" As there's no in-game voice chat, players approaching you may be there to help protect you or kill you and steal the loot you just spent time collecting. Even players you have teamed up with inside the Zone can be using you to help kill that big bad boss, only to turn on you as you await pickup. That said, there is a downside... Agents who do this end up with a "Rogue Agent" title within the Zone, and those who choose to can, in turn, hunt them down for bonus XP and also steal their loot with no "Rogue" tag applied. Returning to the single player for a moment, I've never seen an MMORPG-style game accomplish what The Division has on such a scale. Upon leaving your safe house or base, the entire whole of New York becomes an "instance" for you (no other players will be there with you, UNLESS you group with them prior to leaving). While you must be connected online to play, I've played the entire story out as a single player game. Another interesting thing they've accomplished happens within the main base; as you run missions and collect necessities around the city, the interior of the base changes. More vendors, more refugees, the interior, it all reflects what you've accomplished. However, as a hub for this community of players, others will only see the base as far as they've "fixed" it. Very cool. As a gun-based MMORPG, The Division plays out very much like a hybrid- as opposed to say, World of Warcraft or Guild Wars, where a ridiculous amount of hits may be necessary to kill opponents, The Division falls back into a Gears of War style of play, where falling behind cover is necessary, as 1, 2, 3 hits may take you or the enemy out, with some exceptions in MAJOR boss fights. There's occasional "bullet-sponginess" that occurs, but I find that to follow the typical tropes of MMORPGs. A sniper rifle head shot however, still takes out an opponent in one hit. The Division also features a crafting system like most MMORPGs, but at this moment, it's very light. Recipes are handed out at levels and story missions- there's no hunting for them in obscure places in the world. And while this ease of only a few materials is nice, one thing I haven't encountered is recipes that give specific bonuses. Every crafting session is a gamble on whether it will add a stat you're actually hoping to get. Hopefully, this is something they'll change, as it has led to some frustration. The Division takes a lot of chances in a genre that seems to be content with their typical gameplay, and they're better for it. Not every gamble is perfect, and there's still some ironing out to do (not unexpected in the genre) but the game is excellent for the majority of it, and the ability to enjoy it as a single player game is an unexpected bonus.

    You NEED ONLINE ACCESS to play the game.

    **If you haven't looked up reviews of this game on the specialized gaming websites yet, be advised you'll need online access to enjoy this game. There is no offline solo campaign . I was apprehensive on making a purchase at first. Turned out the game is a lot of fun. To sum the game up, It's a not-too-distant future third person shooter with role playing mechanics. Destiny has nearly the same mechanics set in space and obviously a first person shooter. The Division is best enjoyed with a group of people to assist in completing missions or exploring. The standard players vs game enemies (PvE). Then once you get the gameplay mechanics smoothed out you can either explore the Dark Zone (DZ) or run around the huge map completing missions or getting into random PvE skirmishes. The DZ is where the fun occurs. It is a free-for-all player vs player (PvP). It can be explored solo, which is not advised, or with a group of very trusted people. This area of the game is similar to a standoff and will push the boundaries of trust within your gaming group. You gain points and collect contaminated items that cannot be found in the PvE. The fun and also A LOT of frustration begins. Once you collect your loot, you have the ability to call in a support helicopter at a designated pick up zone to pick up contaminated items for "cleaning" and allow to use it in any area of the game. When you call in the helicopter using your flare gun at the pick up zone, the 1 minute and 30 second countdown timer begins. Amongst your group, This is where you learn that in 1 minute and 30 seconds who you can trust and who will backstab you. On top of having to watch your back, the flare also summons those seeking easy pickings and computer controlled enemies. The flare is like a light bulb and the human and computer controlled scavengers are like moths. I likened it to waking up a hornets nest and beginning epic standoffs and showdowns. The player that assisted you on helping get through a few squads of computer controlled enemies a few streets down can now be the guy that punches your ticket and steals your payday. Also be aware if your mic is on while you are running around and you mentioned you have a particular piece of loot out loud, any player within earshot will hear you, pretend to help you out until you summon the support chopper. OR they may be a white hat and help you fight scavengers that are drawing into your location to steal your items. You just never know. This is probably the most fun you'll have in the game. Now for my cons, there is no pause within a mission or a firefight. Ensure you have done your real life responsibilities, Put the kids to bed, get your clothes ready for school or work, kiss the wife good night (throw in a back rub for good measure), take out the trash, feed the dogs, make sure you paid the bills, empty your bladder; because you're not going to want to stop playing. You're going to want to see what the next loot drops will get you and you're going to want to level up as much as you can until you get to that point where you can sleep for a few hours and a few cups of coffee will get you through your work day. Another fallacy is using the mic. If you enjoy going solo, you don't own, or don't like using the mic, you're going to have a difficult time getting through areas where you might want to group up to speed up the leveling. The DZ is an area you will need to talk yourself out of some sticky situations, gain trust with people, or talk smack when you steal their loot or say something with a very colorful vocabulary when someone steals your loot. Have fun and enjoy the game. Overall, I give this game a solid 4.5 stars.

    A Fun Time

    The Division is a fun open world game with an interesting concept. Exploring a quarantined Manhattan around Christmas time after a virus outbreak felt very surreal. There are a few animals and NPCs wandering the streets; some of which may request an item from you, or are being harassed by the enemy gangs in the city, or just falling over and dying. They do a good job making this world feel alive in a bleak and desolate way. There is hundreds of collectible intel to find, such as phone recordings or echos, that give you small stories of both important and unimportant characters. After you reach level 30 you get access to the World Tier mode and there is daily and weekly orders to complete that give you more to do. You can also play the whole game by yourself or with a couple of friends including plenty of co-op and PVP things events and modes. There are a few smaller problems with the game. First off there is no button mapping so I couldn’t swap the X and O for the vault and cover controls which was backwards in my mind and took me almost half the game to adjust to. Character control itself was problematic for me once in awhile but that could just be collision problems too as I had troubles once in awhile getting around objects or trying to quickly move between cover manually. The hud is very annoying! You can turn it off but if you turn off your weapon/health bar hud it just gets replaced by a prompt to turn it back on. This wouldn’t be as annoying if it wasn’t placed in the middle of the screen! As with every Ubisoft game you get repetitive mission types. They might change slightly but mostly you are just doing the same few types of missions in different areas throughout the game. And finally, the game has no offline mode! It is online only and has server maintenance every week during the time that I play so I lose at least 1 day of play time every week. I would much appreciate an offline mode in future installments so that I can play even when Ubisoft servers are down. I spent over 50 hours playing The Division and enjoyed my time with it. I didn’t think I would enjoy the game as much as I did after my first experience with it when it came out but coming back, it has definitely improved. If you are someone who played it when it first came out and didn’t like it it might be worth giving it another chance. If you’ve never played The Division then I would recommend this to you if you like shooters with light RPG elements. 4 out of 5 stars

    Beta player

    I was highly anticipating this game that when I got my beta code, I instantly went to download it. Logging in to the beta was a bit slow which was kind of expected. The character customization screen was really limited but again it was a beta. So you start off in a makeshift disaster camp, talk to this person, talk to that person routine and then you head out with the missions you received. Once you leave the safe zones is the only time your weapons come out and they are automatic, you cant ever empty your hands. I did a couple missions while exploring the part of the map that was available. Found supplies that had no use in the beta. Finally I stumbled across the base camp that you are shown you can grow in the trailers by completing things. Unfortunately the only one of 3 areas (Medical, Tech, and Defense/Soldier area) that you can expand is medical and once you complete the mission to unlock it, you can only unlock 2 additional parts to the medical. When you unlock the additional parts you gain more skills, again not available in the beta. The beta consisted of 1 mission which is what unlocked the Medical area, which leads me to believe that there is only 3 main missions, and then a few side missions (more obviously in the full). Once you've completed them, those side missions completely go away, no respawn mission times for more supplies... after you complete all you can do in the general player vs player friendly area, you can go into what they call "the dark zone" here you will find tougher enemies but also able to get better gear. The trick to get the gear you pick up is that you have to call in a chopper to take it out as everything is contaminated. Now this takes over 1 minute to extract and if there is a bunch of PvP type players could be nearly impossible to extract for they will be killing you as you try to extract and therefore causing you to drop the picked up gear and dark zone currency. I know on the PC version people were complaining of hackers in the beta, I'm sure that could pass to consoles too. So basically if you've done everything in the player friendly area and there is nothing but people killing other players in the dark zone, this game becomes annoying and pointless. There is no single player to it, just as Tom Clancy's Siege had no single player. I don't know what Ubisoft is thinking going this way, but honestly its the same reason I didn't like Star Wars Battlefront (which had huge potential for me as a Star Wards fan). It had elements to be really good, but fell short for me based on MP required for advanced areas. It does look really good graphically though. Based on the overall map size with the areas beta players couldn't explore and how I saw missions and side missions set up, the overall fun experience would last a few hours, but if you wanted to grind for the best gear, it could take substantially more.

    The Division is a unique twist on a tired genre

    Info: I played the beta for ~25 hours. I stayed up all night playing the actual game (roughly 7ish hours) and am writing this review before I go to sleeeeeep. I'm focusing on a brief hit of the major topics to help you make an educated decision. In-depth stuff takes time and since the game has been out only a few hours total, I cannot pretend to cover everything. Pros: -How does the game run on PS4? Terrific. Booted up after install (I downloaded the game, no hard copy). No crashing issues, which some ppl were reporting during the beta. -The game actually has depth in the RPG elements. First, Ubi really tries to make it seem like there is a good reason you are going to be spending hours killing guys. From ppl. coming up to you asking for help and breaking up robberies, it all seems like you have a purpose. The skill trees seem like they have greater depth than would appear at first glance, but I have barely delved into them, so they aren't factored into my star-rating. -The side quests, or whatever you want to call them, actually have bearing within the framework of the story. Ppl are getting robbed by gang-bangers, so you take them out. Nothing groundbreaking, but better than fetch quests only (there are some of those, but I only recall 2 in my 8ish hours of playtime). -Matchmaking is very very easy and fluid. If you want to play solo, you can do that, but it honestly is more fun playing with randoms than solo-at least at this point, since it is all so new. -Graphics are very solid. Lots of attention to detail..it reminds me a lot of The Last Of Us. Another cool thing is when there are constant overlays of the city's maps, and from an outside perspective it seriously looks cool -As cheesy as it sounds, the game makes you feel like you are an agent of a top-secret organization doing your thing to preserve life in post-apocalyptic NYC. It really does, and that is what matters to me. Cons -Really, the only cons at this point are the minor technical issues I encountered, such as clipping or textures not loading in the environment. Very minor stuff. -Some might say the microtransactions should automatically be here, but the fact of the matter is I've paid them no mind and I never cared about them b/c I just don't spend money on them. Take that as you will. -Accidentally shooting a teammate when you are trying to shoot someone who is rogue is absolutely infuriating and honestly needs some tweaking, in my opinion. I swear that a couple times I've gone rogue on accident for this very reason. FYI: Since everyone compares this game to Destiny I wanted to state that I did not like Destiny, for a lot of reasons. I do believe that I will get a lot of time out of this game, however. Take that as you will.

    ...and the single-player story, while occasionally interesting, is mostly just a platform to get you into the PVP Dark Zone, which can be hellish if you don't have a team to back you up. Honestly, I really like the single player campaign. It's full of collectables and has an interesting skill progression system that is entirely dependent on completing missions and earning faction currency in the three main Division sub-sections (Medical, Tech, and Security). Most of the story is gleaned from these missions and the plethora of disjointed sources of evidence you can collect through encounters, pickups, and side missions. The lore of the world is top-notch... it's just sad that the endgame is repetitive and PVP dependent. Once you finish the main story, you're pretty much locked into diving into the Dark Zone for better gear and challenges... which is all well and good, but a very dangerous proposition. It takes hard work and luck to solo the DZ and is only recommended for the best players. Everyone else should bring or join a group... and pay attention to when matchmaking players drop out of said group because they're probably about to turn on you. Still, for all the bad Rogue Agents can inflict on you, I've seen plenty of cooperation in the DZ, too. Players who are willing to risk their bounty for people they're not grouped with. Both hostility and generosity are surprising common in the DZ. Weird. Do I recommend this game? Cautiously, yes. Endgame is a loot grind that can be very frustrating since there are often Rogues trying to steal your thunder... but the basic story is enough to draw you in and the skill system is fun (even if many skills overlap). Just make sure you have online access and a friend or two to back you up. You're gonna want to run in packs.

    Great Combat, Shallow Gameplay

    The Division is fun to play with friends! You'll have a good time working together, facing challenges, and earning a few tense victories against both the NPCs and other enemy players. If you mainly play solo, it will be fun for two weeks while you level up, and then you'll likely get bored with it. The game has great 3rd person cover based shooting. I don't think I've ever had more fun sniping in a console game than I did here. "Run & Gun" Shotgun style combat by aggressively switching cover and flanking was also fun. However, the gameplay is very shallow. Aside from a few minor distractions with "ECHO"s that show the backstory, its primarily one shooting gallery after another. Over and over again. This would be less painful if it weren't for the severe lack of enemy variety. There are guys with Hoodies, and Military guys... that's it. Some dudes use a shotty, some dudes a rifle, others snipe. The flamethrower guys are pretty much the only unique thing here. Attack dogs, axe wielding fanatics, suicide bombers... ANYTHING would be good to keep you on your toes. I'll have to give Destiny credit here as enemy variety was top notch compared to this game. The game has only been out a month at the time of this review and they have a lot planned for this game throughout the year. I think they view it more as a platform they will continue to update. Considering how well the game is selling, I think they will support it. Hopefully they see these flaws and it will be a more complete game soon. I recommend the game if you have 2-3 people that will play it with you consistently or you're quick to make new friends online. Otherwise, you'll eventually get bored with it as the "End Game" Dark Zone area is not a place you want to be by yourself.

    Had a lot of potential

    I've played Destiny and did enjoy the game for a time so immediately I was interested in what The Division had to offer. To start they took a lot of things that Destiny struggled with and made them better. The crafting system is great and gives that game a sense of uniqueness because each gun is very different and can be modded differently. The same goes for the gear. If you guys are familiar with Diablo III, you'll recognize that a lot of the game is trying to get better gear and perfect your build. I loved this about the game. I also loved the concept of their PVP or the Darkzone. Once I played the Darkzone for awhile with friends I realized how amazing it could be but also realized that the developers did not effectively capitalize of its potential. It didn't take people long to find ways to force others to accidentally go rogue and kill them to gain extra experience. People could easily travel in groups larger than 4 people by abusing the system and completely dominate a server. Darkzone also didn't do a great job of putting people into the same gear level. Anything above gear score 161 are lumped together. If you play the game a lot you'll realize that it's actually pretty easy to get to 200+. Suffice it to say the Darkzone still needs a lot of work. Actually, the whole game needs a lot of work. It feels like a incomplete product and their servers and constantly lagging or going down. When I played Destiny at least it felt like a finished product even though they didn't have as much content. The Division did get it right by allowing you many options to get gear and not forcing you to do one thing over and over. But had their developers cared about their work enough to say it's not ready this could have been a great game.

    I wasn't sure if I'd like it at first, but since it was from Tom Clancy, I decided I'd give it a shot. What's sad is that this isn't TC's comfort zone and it did what Elder Scrolls Online and Destiny wanted to accomplish. And it accomplished it well. The game seamlessly puts together campaign and PVP. You can play solo, with friends, strangers or a mix. Right before you start a mission, you can find other players and the difficulty will match the number of players in your group with the difficulty you picked (normal or hard). Don't be fooled. At first, it will seem easy, but later on, as you get better, the AI does as well. They aren't repetitive. The Dark Zone...watch out. It's like a mission, except it's hard+ as a default. Rogue agents mean exactly that. You can attack any other player except the ones in your party. If you do attack someone, you'll go rogue and possibly your whole group as well for limited amount of time. You will most likely be the focus of gunfire at that point, even if there are AI present as well. The game can be a little technical, when choosing weapons, gear and such but in the end you'll appreciate it because you can optimize your loadout. A big plus is your character can wear whatever he or she likes - it has nothing to do with your attributes - so you can actually have a matching outfit. The game is a bit brief, but I'm already decided on getting the season pass. Personally, this game did well in simply making the gameplay simple and non-clunky. Other players usually are well-mannered (unless you're in the DZ and they're hostile). The item pickup is customized for each player so there's no rushing to the item unless a player is killed in the DZ. All I can say is I don't regret the purchase.

    I was torn as to wether or not I would pick this one up. When I decided I'd give it a go it was already late afternoon on launch day. I arrived at my local Best Buy only to find there weren't any copies left on the floor. As I was about to head for the door a blue shirt approached and offered to check for a copy in the back. As luck would have it they had a copy of Division for PS4 back there. I checked out using the Gamer's Club discount of 20%...I've reviewed that separately, for 30 bucks you get a 20% discount off of all new game purchases for 2 years. Out the door I paid less than 50 dollars for a 60 dollar game. Install and updating was pretty quick. Finally I was ready to play and play I did. The graphics, story, voice acting, side stories and gameplay are all top notch. It is an online only game so don't purchase if you don't plan on playing online. There is no multi-player option but you do have the option to play online with others in co-op missions, free roam, or the dark zone which is Divisions end game area, PvP is allowed here so I'd recommend traversing it with a pack or waiting to enter until your gear is sufficiently leveled. There are many collectible items which give a back story on the people of NYC during the outbreak and an insight into their lives. Each recording you collect is well thought out. I've used their built in matchmaking and have found it to be really great for finding help to complete difficult missions. All in all this game is immersive and highly enjoyable. I know this review is disjointed but there's so much to love and I can't think of a cohesive way in which to put it all down. I'd for sure recommend this and I hope you enjoy it.

    Great Game, a little lacking in endgame

    Initially, the Division is a great game with a lot of potential. Essentially a destiny clone (from the point of the Taken King on) The Division really nailed the formula off the bat in the areas Destiny fell short in originally. It has a pretty decent campaign thats much more interesting than Destiny and gives a fresh new perspective on New York as a war zone. With believable enemies such as rioters, crazy sanitation workers, escaped prisoners, and ex military operating in a lawless New York. It gives a fresh perspective in a world ravaged at the hands of men, not monsters in a city that has felt overused. The division is almost a 1:1 scale of the New York Map. When it comes to endgame material though, the Division seems to lack in the magic that Destiny offered with its raids, such as first exploring the Vault of Glass or Croats End. In these raids, I had a sense of awe and mystery when learning complex mechanics to defeat seemingly invincible bosses. Yet in the division, the end game 'incursions' as they are called are much more point and shoot encounters that are gruelingly long and tedious, especially with only 4 players in a fire team allowed. Overall, the division is a great way to kill three days of playtime, a solid 72 hours which is better than many other games have managed lately, but after that it can be written off as the next step to finding that next sweet spot that Destiny hit with its combination that kept people locked into playing it for 3 months.

    A first person shooter that you must have.

    I purchased this for my father as a birthday gift for his PS4 system. I chose this for him only after I recently purchased the X-box One "The Division" game console. I am addicted to this game. I like first person shooter games and this one has great action, an intriguing story line, freedom to choose which missions you play on the game map and multiplayer at your discretion. It offers weapon and equipment upgrades via earned game credit purchase or via being awarded upon completing missions, defeating enemies and picking up their weapons & equipment or the occasional found equipment box in various places throughout virtual Manhattan. You must create an Ubisoft account to play because it's an online multiplayer game but you are not required to play with other players online as I prefer to play alone and this game allows it. You can ignore team up requests or if you like, accept or request others in safe houses and use the game's Matchmaking feature to be teamed with appropriately skilled players. I have hit level 27 of 30 at this point in sector missions and I am not done. I haven't yet explored the "Dark Zone" missions or the "Underground" missions. This game can just keep going and it was just recently updated so you know it will be kept fresh. I don't think you can be disappointed if you like 1st person shooters. By the way, did I mention that my father loves it and he is big on 1st person shooters as well.

    Playing Solo - one man Army

    Finished most of the the main missions and 80% of side missions, ALL solo. Now level 30. I even solo'd the last mission at the general Assembly which was supposed to be "multi-only" . My strategy was to OP a bit, tackling a mission when I was 2-3 levels or so above it, and really using my sniper rifles as primary weapons (I prefer the M1A1 for the semi-auto fire, but also kept a high level M44 or other bolt for the insane head shot damage). Here's my final recommendation for solo: think strategically. If you get killed 2-3 times trying a mission the same way it usually means there's another angle you havent tried. Scout the environment, go for high ground, know your opponents, find a sniper rifle and other weapon combo you like (I prefer subs to assault rifles) and stick with it, upgrading as you go.. Worked for me! Strong solo play and RPG elements!! I am playing solo and I am loving it--got about 20 hours in and cant wait to get back. I think a lot of gamers really arent familiar with the standard RPG elements of loot grinding, level based combat, and slow progression towards a goal as you constantly improve/redefine your character. Division seems to use that template, and they do a heck of a job. New York is amazing, with occasionally heartbreaking elements of Christmas, lost dogs, and desperate people. Is it a bit too repetitive? Yes, just as most good RPGs are.

    Loved It Until the Servers Went Down

    I have been a Ubisoft video game fan for a few years now most notably their Assassins Creed series. Some friends of mine convinced me to give the division a try so we can all play together. Was excited with my purchase. The graphics are incredible, storyline is decent and overall a good gaming experience. Well good experience until the servers went down. The first time the servers went down I really didn't mind it too much since it only restarted me by one or two missions. But the last time the server went down which was last night it restarted me as if I am from the beginning. Not cool Ubisoft! From my understanding initially the servers went down because they could not handle all of the influx of players at one time but the last time they intentionally shut them down because some players were able to utilize some of the system bugs to their benefit. Since I was not one of the people that benefitted from said system bug it has become an annoyance that I am now returning the game back to Best Buy for a full refund! That being said no I would not recommend this game well not until they have fixed all of the bugs. Overall Ubisoft I believe still produces some solid gaming product but this one was just an absolute fail for me.

    Firstly, this is an online only game! I love Tom Clancy games and will admit I was a bit disappointed to hear The Division and Rainbow Six Siege were going to be online multiplayer focused, but man are they fun! I prefer single player experiences but this game does a better job IMO than other online focused games such as Destiny, to deliver a single player experience. The gameplay is addicting. The shooting, movement, and looting mechanics are all excellent and make this game a blast to play. I especially like that you can customize real world weapons and it can change the way a gun handles and damage output. The graphics are gorgeous and sound design is emersive. The environments are detailed and have a fantastic post viral outbreak look that really sells the idea of what NY would be like if something similar occurred. I absolutely love the Dark Zone portion of the game. In this zone, you can find high level loot but must extract it before you can use it. You'll encounter other players in this Zone and you/they can either help extract the loot gathered or attempt to steal it by killing one another. This creates extremely tense moments when you run into other players and aren't sure whether they are friendly or hostile.

    Massive has done a really great job making this game. You get such a different feel from this game that you don't really see in a lot of other games. Graphics are beautiful. The map design are exquisite. The story mode (so far as of 4/8/16 is really good, IMO) The game mechanics are pretty neat yet takes a little getting used to. These type of games aren't games you rush to hit max level then quit. These type of games are intended to be a grind fest. Yes that means spending hours upon hours grinding for the best gear possible. Yes you can try your luck with crafting, but you will still have to grind the materials and currencies out. The pvp aspect of this game is set in the Dark Zone and always leave you wondering what's going to happen when you cross path with another agent. Massive has shown to be capable so far with some interesting patches. They have shown that they are listening to the player base with fixes, new gear, new loot drop probability, introducing some new content and mechanics to the game. If you're wondering if this game is for you. First ask your self how much did you like Destiny? Or Borderlands? This game is really polished and compare to Bungie; Massive seems to have their head screw on well. Definitely one of my main games so far this year.

    Presentation/Availability: Product was well packaged with no broken/opened box. There were many available at the store. Performance/Gameplay: My review is for the PS4. If you like shooter games, then you will definitely like this game. Is not like Call of Duty or games like that (besides this one is in third-person). It plays differently; you have to be more tactical, which makes it really interesting since you are playing something different. I like the weapons and accessories. Image resolution (gameplay and theatrical) is very good and the sound is good as well. Online playing is fast-paced and I love it!!!! You can create different characters, so if you are high-ranked already in the game, and a friend just join in, you can use/create a low-ranking character to help your friend to gain rank/experience without sacrificing what you already have won. If you play as a team, it gets better. Customer service: Very good customer service. I was greeted by an employee as soon as I walked through the door. I used the ‘Pickup at store’ capability and didn’t have any problem in completing the process. I was in-and-out of the store in less than 8 minutes.

    I was skeptical about this game when it first came out, thinking here comes another bland shooter ready to suck hours of my life away. At its core, this is exactly what it is but in this games case, its not a bad thing. There are so many distractions to keep your mind occupied. NYC has been beautifully recreated and discovering each section gives you a true sense of accomplishment. The combat is also on point and there's plenty of variety in customizing your weapons and gear. The true fun comes with partnering up with other players online and taking down missions together. Find the right group of people to play with and you'll truly feel like your taking back NYC together and making a difference. The only downside of this game that I've discovered so far is sometimes you might get stuck in a glitch and have to "fast travel" to a different location and then spawn back to where you originally were. It's only happened to me a couple times but it can severely disrupt the flow of the game when you're in the middle of a mission. Other than that, this game is a solid entry into the Tom Clancy series so be ready to develop an addiction.

    So, I have Destiny, an MMO game, and your game saves are also only online, etc. I heard this game too was somewhat like that, but 3rd person. Well I was hesitant to get this game because of all the bugs during launch and the troll players, the ones that block the doorways and others that block you from vendors to buy gear, weapons, etc. I think thats all fixed now. Some people say this is role playing, I think its just a long game. I mean so far I finished up the main store but there are lots of side missions and encounters to do leftover. plus there is a patch where two levels or two missions are unlocked when you reach level 30, which can take a while. you can play solo, or better yet play with a group, and this game is really more fun and a bit easier when you play with a group, mainly your friends that also game or just a random matchmaking session. I had the pleasure of being in a group beating this other part of the last mission of the story, and was talking to a guy from belgium on chat. I blieve i will keep this game much longer than i expected

    Bought this a year after it's release. Read a number of reviews on gaming sites that seemed to not be glowing, but I really liked the story line, love my yearly trips to NYC and wanted to play in what I read was a great recreation of the city. My initial reaction was slightly frustrating, because it seemed to take a lot of work to get past enemies and complete challenges. I was pleasantly surprised after I slogged through many attempts on missions that as my character leveled up and collected gear, enemies were going down with a more reasonable amount of effort. I haven't tried out any multiplayer missions yet, and not really my focus or area of expertise, so if that is your primary concern, my review may not be right for you. If you're looking for a cool story and like the aspect of battling in NYC and hunting down gear, I would definitely recommend it. I'm always excited to play and I've probably put in 14 hours on it so far and still a lot of game to go. It was well, well worth the $15 I paid and very entertaining.
