The original Division was a fascinating game that briefly captured online shooter fans before being buried under some bad design choices and a frustrating lack of updates. The team behind The Division 2 is well-aware of the original game’s shortcomings.
As such, the developers have set out to ensure that this sequel is bigger, more story-driven, and more accommodating to groups of players. For the most part, Ubisoft has succeeded, releasing a sequel that improves on almost every system from the first game. You won't play a more enjoyable loot shooter this year!
