remeshed review - Sarah Warn, positive

The Division has its problems, especially when it comes to repetition-in both missions and enemy AI, who are literally identical most of the time-but the game’s inclusion of women and minorities is excellent, the matchmaking for missions works well, the story is interesting and the gameplay is fun.

VG247 - Brenna Hillier, positive

The Division is the most cohesive and consistently entertaining open world Ubisoft has ever produced, backed up by tactical gunplay and adaptable RPG mechanics. - Alice Bell, positive

The Division is a very interesting game. It’s a game caught between worlds, and could be described as a shooter, or an RPG, or an MMORPG, or a shoot–and–looter, and it’s sort of all of those things and yet none of them. It’s a mongrel, and being a mongrel is what gives it the soaring highs as well as the flaws. - Steph Pinksmurph, positive

This cover-based 3rd person shooter is addicting, immersive, and time consuming in all the best ways.
