I completely agree, down to everything you said about the villains and the story itself. I thought Ryan Reynolds was fantastic, and I loved Colossus as well as NTW. I thought all three were a lot of fun. I was a little underwhelmed by the action and the villains, but I know they had their budget cut, so I cut it a bit… Read more
I thought it looked amazing, I thought it sounded good, I preordered it. Its still sitting on my shelf in the original wrapping with my PS2 stuff.
I’ve heard it’s a pretty hefty time investment, which is really the only reason I haven’t started yet. But I have no big games coming soon, so as soon as I’m done with a few new indies, I’m on it. It’ll probably take me a month or more though, since I work full time and live with a non-gamer GF lol

Just wanted to say, great first review. Thank you!
Uh the UI in the Division is basically WatchDogs + the new Tomb Raider (with some hints of the Dirt menu system), it is not new exactly, but still pretty!
Nice write up. Keep up the good work.
Great write -up. I played the Beta all weekend too and as a mostly solo player, I loved the gestures. I have to admit I am worried about the solo experience but there seems to be lots of matchmaking options (eg: Free roam, dark zone, missions, etc)
