The Division hasn’t really been a game that’s been on my radar. Shooters have never been my favourite genre, and I just hadn’t heard anything about the game that made it sound particularly appealing to my tastes.
But when Ubisoft decided to thrown open the doors for an open beta, I figured I had nothing to lose by trying it.
I’ve done a full write-up on my experiences in the beta on MMOBro: The Division Beta Is Mostly Empty (But Maybe That’s Okay).
I have to say I was surprised by The Division. I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to, and given my preferences, it’s even more surprising that I enjoyed the exploration and side missions more than the main story content.
I’ve given serious thought to actually buying it, but between my glut of games to play and the game’s whopping $80 price tag, I think I’ll hold off until the next Steam sale, at least.
