the beta was pretty accurate on how the final product is, at least game play wise. the graphics got really beefed up though. if you're looking to play solo though, I'm not sure how much fun you'll have. the game style is not much different than borderlands. with borderlands, you beat it and then go through playthrough 2 and whatnot to get better loot at a harder difficulty. with the division, they treat it more like an mmorpg where you hit end game and grind currency for better gear. fetch quests in standard rpgs are concealed as protecting supply drop quests and disrupt arms deal quests. main missions are well done as far as the intensity goes. some of the side missions are too. they add a bit of meat to the game since some of them unlock some story behind the events that led up to the situation new York is in. there's some cctv and found footage things that get unlocked and put a chill in your spine. if you know that's the type of game play you're getting into, you should be fine.
