We gamers are a pretty critical bunch. We take everything with a pinch of salt and examine each and every part of the product we’re purchasing. To satisfy our gaming needs, developers search high and low for different aspects and genres and sometimes create different new genres.
Back in June 10th 2013, the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 was in full swing. And Ubisoft had taken the stage to present their games in front of the world. They talked about Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Now I have always liked Tom Clancy and his work and especially more so after Ubisoft started making games on Splinter Cell novels no matter how loosely they are based on. I was focused all on Blacklist until Ubisoft presented Tom Clancy’s The Division. A game which captures the breathtakingly huge chunk of Middle Manhattan and portrays a mid-epidemic situation in an Open-world, Survival-themed, Role-playing game with Third-person shooting and cover-based mechanics. Phew! That’s a lot of genres smashed into a single sentence but The Division actually does justice to almost all of the genres mentioned above. Now let’s take a detailed look shall we ?
