Game review: The Division

On Black Friday, a smallpox pandemic transmitted by a virus planted onto banknotes, sweeps through New York City. The disease, called “Green Poison”, causes widespread chaos, and Manhattan is placed under quarantine. The U.S. Government activates sleeper agents in the population who operate for the Strategic Homeland Division, or Division, to assist emergency responders, now called the Joint Task Force (JTF), in restoring order. In Brooklyn, the protagonist, a Division agent, assists the JTF before planning to depart for the Quarantine zone with fellow agent Faye Lau. However, the VTOL meant to take them there is destroyed in an explosion, killing the Division Commander and wounding Lau. Arriving in a JTF helicopter instead, the Division agents reclaim the James A. Farley Post Office Building as their base of operations. From there, the agents undertake assignments to rescue important personnel, combat criminal groups, and uncover the origins of the Green Poison. Studying Green Poison samples reveal the virus was manufactured by a controversial biologist named Gordon Amherst. This game is a third person shooter and in my opinion has an interesting story. I would give this game 9 1/2 out of 10
