REVIEW Tom Clancys The Division

Efore the collapse lies a mystery a handwritten account of a woman struggling to discover why New York City fell The keys to unlocking the survivor's full story are hidden within seven removable artifa If S and The Zombie Survival Guide Complete Protection from the Living Dead had a baby it would be New York Collapse by Alex Irvine True there are no zombies or love stories happening in the margins But it is a survival book with handwritten notes and artifacts inserted by a woman who is desperately trying to survive New York after a weaponized version of smallpox is released into the general public While I really enjoyed the handwritten notes puzzles and inserted artifacts I felt the book was slowed down by the prose of the manual I learned some interesting tidbits such how far water will travel up in a building by the pure force of gravity versus with the aid of electric pumps But while I said oh cool out loud a few times these mental floss esue knowledge bubbles weren't enough to sustain a high pace If you are a fan of experimental literature and survival stories I highly recommend giving this a read Also for those curious I haven't played the game at all and I still found it to be an enjoyable read even without that transmedia connection


New York Collapse is an in world fictionalized companion to one of the biggest video game releases of 2016 Tom Clancy's The Division from Ubisoft Within this discarded survivalist field guide written b So Tom Clancy's The Division New York Collapse is really a two for one deal The basic book is a survival guide to a long term collapse of society It goes through amazing details about how to survive what to use where to go and what to think Wow it was a true eye opener If I haven't mentioned it before I'm a prepper Yep I take emergency preparedness seriously probably why I like all those end of the world and dystopian books So the guide alone would have been something I would buyThe interactivesecond part of the deal is a personal journal written by April a woman living during the collapse of New York City Her husband was a biologist killed for his germ research She carries the survival guide with her using it to record her journey and to unravel what exactly happened in New York She also leaves little puzzles throughout the book in case it ever falls into the wrong handsThe journal is written in several colors of ink Each color represents a different period of time So when reading you often find yourself reading notes that involve different time periods of April's survival She also leaves different maps transit cards and other interactive products within the pagesThis is a really fun book I give it 45 stars and that's only because it is a bit hard to follow smoothly

Cts ranging from a full city map to a used transit card Retrace her steps through a destroyed urban landscape and decipher her clues to reveal the key secrets at the heart of this highly anticipated ga This book complements the videogame The Division presenting a realistic survival guide combined with fictional notes of a survivorI bought this some time ago when I was playing the game while you play you can find pages of this guide and it describes an important part of the plot Since The Division is set shortly after the outbreak of a deadly disease it's easy to find similarities with the global Covid19 pandemicI guess the guide is at least partially inspired by combined with other events like Hurricane Katrina It describes common prepper knowledge such as bug out backpacks and survival tools and adds some New York specifics to the mixThis is not a real survival guide It's written in universe replacing US agencies with their game counterparts disguising game clues as real data and following the game plot as the main narrative However since it follows real sources and keeps a realistic style it's easy to find many resemblances to the Covid19 crisis the main difference being that the guide describes a full collapse due to various cascading effects that haven't taken place in realityDepending on how badly the current crisis has hit you this might not be your cup of tea However if you still like apocalyptic and post apocalyptic fiction and have played the game read this I wouldn't recommend it if you haven't played or if you played and didn't enjoy it
