    Car chases aside, Watch Dogs would be a great and memorable open-world action game if not for persistent performance problems.

    The Watch_Dogs experience on PS3 is good but it does not match our expectations from a technical perspective. The definitive version is definitively on Next Gen platforms.

    This game is awesome, the game mechanic are nice and the control too, all the little thing like walking while checking your phone make the game more realistic. The whole game is original and a really enjoyable open world game...I liked GTA V and I must say that WatchDogs is so much more fun.

    And for everybody who is so disapointed about are just stu*id...the game look better then any other game on's just normal that it don't look as nice as the PS4 dont have to spend 400$ to get the ps4 and you can play this awesome game....what's the problem ?..if you want to have really nice graphic go get a PS4 and stop saying that the graphic are bad...It's like if you were saying that a game look REALLY bad because you watched a video of the game running on 2000$ PC and it was so much nicer....seriously....please, try to be smart just a little bit....

    Not sure what everyone is crapping on about. This game is amazing. For the PS3, I think the graphics are great.. Not much difference in comparison to the next-gen versions of the game at all. A lot of fun, missions are awesome, long story, good characters and great open-world. Not sure why everyone is complaining, maybe because the game was so hyped up but I loved it. Well done Ubisoft in my opinion. Expand

    I created an account to post just this one review. I really don't understand the hate for this game. I am playing on PS3. This is the most fun I've had playing a game in a very long time, probably since Red Dead Redemption. I probably have 30-40 hours in and I only did 3 main missions so far. I am just too busy exploring the map and doing all the side stuff.

    I am having so much fun just derping around in this open world, more fun than I ever had in any GTA game I can remember. Last night I spent an hour just chillin' in some NPC's basement and playing poker. The NPC's in this game are really well done and I love how interactive the whole environment is. 9/10

    This is a Very good game. The graphics are good, the hacking is good. But the let down is mainly the driving! After all the hype and excitement it good if is a let down but still a very amazing game. Few glitches. Not as good as next gen but what do you expect? Also The recommended age is 18 but I say that a mature child would be fine with it at 11+. Expand

    This game disappoints me. I was happy to finally be getting a game after going 5 to 6 months of only playing GTA 5, NBA 2K, and COD. I wish i had waited to see what the game was like before i bought it.

    So i have played watch dogs for about an hour and the story is cool. I like the different hacks you can do and i also like Aiden's character (i don't care much for his rough voice tho). But the graphics are very poor for a game released in 2014. Im not a graphics whore by any means but i just can't comprehend how terrible the cars look when free roaming. It looked like i was playing gran turismo on PS2. And the driving mechanics are not realistic at all. I read somewhere that they used the driving mechanics from some racing game to use in watch dogs but it did not turn out very well. While driving when i bumped into cars they barely moved and my car would spin a little and when trying to correct i would oversteer. While oversteering the car would slide side to side but it wouldn't be fluid at all. It was like a string was attached to the front of a car and someone was jerking it side to side.They failed on the driving. The frame rate also drops significantly at times and with graphics this poor the game should be running very smoothly. I give this a 5/10 because while this is a decent game all the hype on it really let a lot of people down. I was expecting it to rival GTA 5 but it doesn't even belong in the same paragraph as a game as well made as gta 5.

    I won't rate this a 0 or a 10 like some others do to 'balance' the scores. In my opinion, this is a supreme disappointment after all the hype and delay. PS3 graphics are downright horrible, especially when compared to recent games like GTA5, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, and the Last of Us. There is just no excuse for releasing a current game with LAST gen graphics. While the premise is interesting, I can't get into a 2014 game that makes my eyes bleed. While this might be a worthwhile IP on a PS4 or high-end PC, give it a wide miss on the severely underperforming PS3. Utter crap, Ubisoft. Expand

    Easily the worst game I have ever played. Terrible story, the controls are incredibly awkward, the enemies dont make any sense. There is no way in hell you will still be standing after taking a round from an M107 in the chest or helmet if you only have sapis and a kevlar on. At least let me buy some body armor as well. The "hacking" was awful. I work as a white hat hacker myself and this was just typical hollywood "hacker" nonsense. I regret that i refuse to give up until I beat it since I bought it but the moment the credits are done I am breaking the disc in half. So much more satisfying than returning this imitation of a game. Please stick to assassins creed ubisoft montreal. Its what you are good at. Expand
