It’s no secret that while the Division 1 had some great concepts and potential, it failed to live up to the hype and turned out to be a pretty average game at best.

That’s what makes Division 2 so exciting. Ubisoft has the chance to take what it learned the first time around and actually deliver on the potential.

It might have an uphill battle in convincing players of the first installment to give it another try, but there was enough done right in first game that we feel the majority will pick up #2 for a try.
