Taking a little break from the PAX East recap posts I wanted to show a little more of my Let's Play series Dad Plays Games at Lunch. In this episode I was playing some Division days after launch and wowee was it laggy and tough to play. I have since finished the game and it is collecting a bit of dust but I plan to re-visit to check out how it has evolved.
The Division is fun but very flawed, the game really falls into a series of patterns very quickly as I highlighted in a Review on BlogCritics recently. Get into new zone, complete a couple of story missions (which are quite good) complete the same exact side missions from the previous zone but against slightly different enemies. I also found that the customization has some high points - Gun layouts and modifications, and low points - really, REALLY boring outfits which has me wondering why I am exploring so much. In Destiny the armor just looks cooler and cooler, in The Division I get to choose between a purple or black Parka. A little lame :/
Anyway, here is the Let's Play, it is early in the games launch and the load times and glitches were pretty Epic, the first few minutes is just loading screens which got much better as time went on - Enjoy:
