Tom Clancy’s The Division Review

I hurried into the local department CCNP 300-101 Dumps store to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas 1Z0-133 dumps gifts. E20-385 exam dumps I looked at all the people and grumbled2 to myself. I would be in here forever and 9A0-385 exam dumps I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning Learningpdf to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could 9A0-385 exam dumps just sleep through Learningpdf Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could through all the 9A0-385 exam dumps people to the toy department. Once again Prepexamwell I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids Learningpdf would Prepexamwell E20-385 exam dumps even play whit4 them. I found myself Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps in the doll aisle5. Out E20-385 exam dumps of the corner of my eye I saw a little boy about 5 Learningpdf holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 CCNP 300-101 Dumps her hair and Learningpdf he held Learningpdf her so gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking over at the little boy and wondered 9A0-385 exam dumps who the doll was for. I watched him turn to a woman and he called his aunt by name and said, “Are you sure I Learningpdf don’t have enough E20-385 exam dumps Prepexamwell money?” She replied a bit impatiently, “You know that you don’t have enough money Learningpdf CCNP 300-101 Dumps for it.” The aunt told 1Z0-133 dumps the little boy not to go anywhere that she had 9A0-385 exam dumps to go Prepexamwell and get some 9A0-385 exam dumps other 1Z0-133 dumps things and would CCNP 300-101 Dumps be back in a few minutes. And then she left the 1Z0-133 dumps aisle. Prepexamwell The boy continued to Learningpdf hold the doll. After a bit I asked the boy who the doll 9A0-385 exam dumps was for. Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps He said, “It is the doll my CCNP 300-101 Dumps sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just CCNP 300-101 Dumps knew that Santa would bring it. “I told him that maybe Santa was going to bring it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go Learningpdf where my sister is…. I have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me CCNP 300-101 Dumps with 1Z0-133 dumps the saddest eyes and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus. Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps

My Daddy says that Mamma is Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps 1Z0-133 dumps going to have Learningpdf to go be Learningpdf with her.” My heart Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps nearly stopped beating. Then the E20-385 exam dumps E20-385 exam dumps boy CCNP 300-101 Dumps looked at me again and Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps said, “I told my Daddy to tell 9A0-385 exam dumps my Mama not to 1Z0-133 dumps go yet. I told him 1Z0-133 dumps to tell her to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture. Learningpdf I told him I’d love CCNP 300-101 Dumps to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken CCNP 300-101 Dumps at the front of the store. 1Z0-133 dumps He said, “I want my Mama to take this with her so the 1Z0-133 dumps dosen’t ever forget me. I love Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps my Mama so very much and I wish she 1Z0-133 dumps CCNP 300-101 Dumps dind E20-385 exam dumps not have to E20-385 exam dumps leave me.But Daddy says she will E20-385 exam dumps need to Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps be Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps with my sister.” I saw that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was not looking I reached into my 9A0-385 exam dumps E20-385 exam dumps purse and Prepexamwell pilled out E20-385 exam dumps a handful of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count 1Z0-133 dumps 9A0-385 exam dumps that miney one more time?” He grew excited Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps and said, “Yes,I CCNP 300-101 Dumps just know it has Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps to be enough.” So I slipped my money in with his Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps and we began to count it . Of course it was plenty for the doll. He softly said, 9A0-385 exam dumps “Thank you Prepexamwell Jesus for Prepexamwell giving me enough money.” Then the boy said, Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps “I just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy E20-385 exam dumps this doll so 9A0-385 exam dumps Mama can take it Prepexamwell with her to give 1Z0-133 dumps my sister. And he E20-385 exam dumps heard Prepexamwell my Prepexamwell prayer. I wanted to ask him E20-385 exam dumps give for enough to buy Prepexamwell my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask him, but he gave me enough to buy the doll and a rose for my Mama. She loves white rose 1Z0-133 dumps so much. “In a few Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled E20-385 exam dumps my cart away. I could not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished my shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when I 1Z0-133 dumps had started. And I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several 9A0-385 exam dumps Learningpdf days earlier about a drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a little girl and the Mother was in serious condition. The family was deciding Learningpdf on whether to 1Z0-133 dumps remove the life support. Now surely this Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps little 9A0-385 exam dumps boy did not belong with that story.Two days Learningpdf later CCNP 300-101 Dumps 9A0-385 exam dumps I read in the paper where Prepexamwell the family had CCNP 300-101 Dumps disconnected the life support and the young woman had died. I CCNP 300-101 Dumps could not forget the little boy and just kept wondering if the two were somehow connected. Later that day, I could not help myself and I went out and E20-385 exam dumps bought aome white roses and took 9A0-385 exam dumps them to the funeral home Salesforce ADM-201 Dumps where the yough woman was .And CCNP 300-101 Dumps there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful Prepexamwell doll, and the picture of the little boy Prepexamwell in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. Prepexamwell And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

Rating: 9/10

I’ve been looking forward to The Division since it was announced some three-ish years ago. The release date finally came earlier this month, and in my opinion, was worth the wait, although it might not be for everyone.

The first things that I noticed in Tom Clancy’s The Division were the visuals. Although downgraded from initial trailers, as is unfortunately typical for new releases, New York is still stunning. Also stunning is the atmosphere that Ubi Massive was able to create, making it easy to immerse yourself in the cold, disease-ridden streets of the Big Apple. As expected of new Ubisoft titles, the again, beautifully rendered map is filled with collectibles, all of which contribute pieces of information about the events that took place before the start of the game, be it a cell phone recording, the feed from a security camera, or several others.

The next thing I noticed was the actual gameplay. At first glance, the weapons in The Division are pretty standard, as are the abilities that are available to players. Though a folding pistol-sized grenade launcher may seem high-tech, it certainly isn’t overly unrealistic. Weapons and abilities, though there aren’t a vast amount of different ones, vary greatly in their function, and make it easy to specialize in certain roles. The Division also makes it possible to swap abilities at any given point during gameplay, which allows players to swap playstyles quickly, and can help keep gameplay interesting.

The Division is very much a coop game, something that is evident in the fact that most abilities help the entire team, and that all the abilities serve such varying roles (Also because it almost constantly prompts you to find groups to play missions). That being said, I played through the campaign entirely on my own, and it’s still fun, challenging, and not overly difficult (It also, in my opinion, has a very good plot, though that might not be a deciding factor for a lot of people). Although it may have been meant for cooperative play, Ubisoft did a good job of making the game enjoyable when played without partners.

The Division is not, however, without it’s share of problems. The most glaring is the fact that it doesn’t last all that long before it becomes a grind. The campaign (at least solo) lasted me around ten hours, and takes players up to around level 30 (the maximum level at this time). After reaching maximum level, the only real thing left to do is to either replay campaign missions on harder difficulties to get better loot, or to enter the heavily advertised “Dark Zone”, an area where players are able to kill each other and steal their loot, and attempt to secure what is supposedly the best gear. Either choice quickly becomes a grind, which while still enjoyable, can take a long time before making any real progress.

The other noticeable problem is the fact that The Division relies heavily on “artificial” difficulty. Although this may not be a problem for many, including myself, some might find this aspect of the gameplay annoying.

Unlike other Clancy titles, The Division doesn’t rely on realistic gunplay and highly-lethal combat. Enemies can take a relatively large amount of bullets before dropping, which, while standard, might turn off players who come into The Division expecting gameplay like that of one of Ubisoft’s other new releases, Rainbow Six: Siege (It could also be somewhat immersion-breaking when you consider the fact that a large amount of the enemies are people wearing hoodies and sweatpants, who are somehow able to take three point-blank shotgun blasts). The difficulty isn’t entirely “artificial”, as higher-level enemies will become more tactical in their movements, rather than just having more health and dealing more damage, but the “artificial” difficulty becomes extremely apparent on higher difficulty settings (“challenging”, specifically), where some enemies can have up to five million hit-points (which is a lot), and can kill a player in around half a second of direct fire (that’s not a lot).

Something important to note about any problems the game has, however, is that Ubi Massive has been doing a FANTASTIC job of communicating with the playerbase, and fixing problems that arise.

Overall, The Division is a good game. You should play it. The only real problems it has are the lack of realism (which isn’t really that annoying if you expect it), and the end-game grind (which should be relieved somewhat by upcoming updates, 2/5 of which are free for all players).
