Tom Clancy’s The Division Underground DLC reviews emerge

Tom Clancy’s The Division is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Should you buy it? The reviews trickled in after publications have properly got their teeth into the game after initial server problems and other bugs caused problems. The most hilarious of these was the “queueing bug”, which left players lining up to access a mission-critical laptop, like Brits patiently waiting in line at Tesco:

This (and other issues) have now been patched, and the reviews are coming in, with a generally positive tone. At the time of writing, the game has a solid 84/100 rating on Metacritic

Digital Spy describes The Division‘s world as “the best open world Ubisoft has ever created”, while Giant Bomb puts aside a few reservations about repetitiveness to say the game is “worth seeing, provided you have some like-minded friends around”. 

Gamespot, meanwhile, finds the game maddening in plenty of respects, but too engrossing to put down, writing, “No matter how frustrated I grew with the game’s semi-indestructible enemies or its repetitive leveling structure, I absolutely could not stop playing. The world was too engrossing, the loot was too enticing, and the campaign was too gripping for me to simply walk away.”

Others, however, don’t see the game as having much longievity. Destructoid argued that “I don’t see Division lasting as long as other, similar games either months down the line, as it simply doesn’t allow for anything on a raid-like level to truly hook in the dedicated crowd.” GameGrin backed this up, saying it “may not live as long as intended.”

Over 6.4 million people tried out the beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Ubisoft has announced, playing the game for an average time of around five hours. Strong numbers for Ubisoft, which will be hoping that beta testers turn into paying players, with the added incentive of in-game reward for players impressed enough to purchase the full game.
