Default The Division review



https://www.ubisoft.com/en-US/game/the-division/
https://www.facebook.com/TheDivision/

Here is a quick rundown of the game-play experience with The Divison by Ubisoft using the keyboard K95 RGB and the Scimitar.

While The Division is considered an MMO-FPS hybrid, I think this game deserves its own category. I really believe Ubisoft did a fantastic job of adding in so many different elements from popular games into a strategical adrenaline - rushing thrill. It truly endeavors the aspect of a shooting game that can be related to Grand Theft Auto 5 or the custom skill-leveling of an MMO comparable to World of Warcraft, while adding the mixture of survival instincts of Day Z. This innovative hybrid creates an eerie feeling of expecting to be betrayed, while feeling compelled to seek safe haven in numbers. Its unique range of influences creates a whole other gaming experience.


The most notable aspect of the game personally, is the ability to use many different ranges of weapons and skill; the level of timely key-pressing execution is something necessary. Whether it was equipping gear or choosing my talents and perks, having multiple hotkeys or macros greatly awarded a player significantly. Imagine a large fire-fight between two opposing groups, the mechanics of the game allows each individual player to regenerate a certain amount of health one has lost while in combat. This strict mechanic may award or punish the player being able to timely execute the key necessary for a fighting chance or death. I’ll admit, there are many instances in the game where it is not always as glorified as it sounds but with most MMO’s, grinding for loot feels like a chore. Regardless of the sluggish grind, the fast-paced commotion kept me grinding. In my personal opinion, the most action-oriented gameplay would be in the recovery of loot in the “player vs player” environment known as Dark Zone. The Dark zone accentuates APM(actions per minute), having the execution means being able to grab loot quicker than your “allies” may make the difference between having nothing or a legendary item. Being able to have the abilities to have extra keys may differentiate you from a newb or an elitist.

The Verdict: The Division by Ubisoft is an overall multi-faceted MMO-FPS hybrid. The game can be played alone but built to played with others; just don’t forget to turn on your microphone. Covering all the bases from intensive shooting action to different character customization it definitely blends the entire necessary ingredients for a great game in its own category.

Very nice review, I play as well. I am curious how you set up your grenades? I would like to do the same thing, but also with the water, candy bar, soda and such, but every time I have tried I seem to make matters worse.

Niteshaft,

Instead of pressing CTRL+1 or CTRL+2 I just did record with the desired macro key (Scimitar). For Keyboard, G15 which is next to my pinky would be my SODA for 40% cool down reduction. I hope this helps!

And here I thought consumables such as sodas and waters are for the civilians. I should've read more about their buffs:

Water: When consumed, water increases all damage dealt to elite enemies by 20%. The effect lasts 30 seconds. -_-

Thank you sir, I am going to attempt to create a game profile for it. When I try to create a macro I either get it to send more then one command (which is usually the wrong key command to begin with) or it doesn't work correctly when I assign it. But I plan on getting this profile created.

Good review, definitely need to pick up this game as well! Never really been a fan of the Scimitar though, how does it compare to the m65 RGB?

Peekandco,

Well its based on preference, they are both great mouses. I use my M65 for games like Counterstrike where impeccable timing is a must and having to move the mouse half across the mousepad. The scimitar does great for games like MMO's and MOBA's hence why I use it for division.

Corsair Wizard,
I to am into The Division, and find it a great game, now that I have finished build my new rig. Nothing special just an Intel i5-6600K overclocked t0 4.5Gh.
Question, How on earth can I get into the Underground?

Thanks in advance,
