The Division

When I started playing this game the other night I complained on Twitter that I was finding the first mission much harder than when I played it in the Beta, before the game’s release (which isn’t too surprising, as a lot of games make their demos/betas slightly easier, so as not to frustrate potential customers). But after doing more side missions and activities, and levelling up a bit, I’ve found a good groove that I’m really enjoying. The recreation of New York is just astoundingly realistic, and I’m starting to get into all the systems (levelling up, item upgrades, crafting, etc.) and can see that I’m going to be spending a lot of time with this game, like I did with Destiny (which I’ve completely exited as of late last year). I haven’t really played with others yet – I tried joining a friend’s game once, but it was too high level, and I was just constantly getting shot down – but I think that’s going to be pretty fun too.
