Letter: ‘Division’ review is appalling and embarrassing
The terrible review of Tom Clancy’s The Division in Monday’s Daily Collegian reflects extremely poorly on the author issuing the review, and The Daily Collegian. A retraction should be issued, and so should apologies – one to readers for allowing such poor content to be printed, and also another to video gamers insulted with Nate’s stereotypes.
To call this a video game review is wrong. Nowhere does he mention the quality of graphics, replay ability, game mechanics and multiplayer. This printing is so far from the bounds of a typical review, I thought I was reading a political op-ed. There are a few sentences that describe the premise of the story, and one sentence that vaguely mentions the ability to upgrade gear.
For all his arguments on art, he seems to have missed the point of First Person Shooters – to gauge your reaction time, dexterity and immediate ability to form an execute plans.
