The comparisons between the newly released Tom Clancy’s The Division and 2014’s Destiny are making it’s rounds across the internet. Both are similar in structure while being different games almost entirely. One is an online coop role-playing first-person shooter while the other is an online coop role-playing third-person shooter. With similarities all over the place, it’s time to find out just which game does it better because competitive behavior is all the rage these days.
When the closed beta dropped for Tom Clancy’s The Division, I was a little less than thrilled with the product. The missions felt flat and while I knew the enemies were bullet sponges, I wasn’t expecting the amount of bullets it would take to take down a single enemy on hard. There’s been several games I’ve enjoyed over the years with damage absorbing enemies including Destiny and Borderlands. But I guess when you see an enemy with nothing but a hoodie taking a shotgun blast to the face and not dying, the immersion becomes a bit dry. It was my biggest issue with the beta. It wasn’t until I jumped into the Dark Zone – The Division‘s hardcore PVP area – that I grasped the spectacular game I was getting into. During the last open beta, I spent the majority of my time in the Dark Zone with friends and had a blast. Now that the final product is out, it’s time to roam the entirety of New York City’s quarantined disaster zone.
