The Division 2 is a seriously accomplished looter shooter, with a gameplay loop that keeps on giving, and an endgame that will keep you playing for months (or years) to come.

The Division 2 is a perfect example of how to absolutely nail a sequel. Of course, it’s not entirely perfect, but after the onslaught of issues and woes surrounding Anthem’s launch, it’s really refreshing to play a game like this that just works, and, more importantly, is incredibly fun to play.

On the surface, The Division 2 is more of what came before. It’s a solid third-person shooter, focused around co-op shootouts with three different factions (and later, a fourth) and developing skills, abilities, and a loadout that compliments your play style. But it’s the fact that you constantly feel like you’re progressing rather than just ticking things off a list that makes Ubisoft’s latest open-world such a delight to explore and fight through. The world reacts to your action and develops accordingly; everything you collect has a purpose; the loot cycle is rewarding and even offers silly apparel options and dyes.
