    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 graphics....you are just stu*id...the game look better then any other game on PS3...it's just normal that it don't look as nice as the PS4 version...you 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

    This game has suffered a lot from pre-hype which is disappointing because this game while not being perfect is still different and interesting which is hard to come by in modern day games. Expand

    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

    I was very optimistic about this game and was very disappointed with what I saw. Lags, bugs, bad graphics (in my opinion of course) and a lot of other things. I mean, really, i thought this game would fight with gta in the open world games, but is far away from that. I played in my friend's house, and now i don't wanna to buy this game, because my disappointment with the game is very high, unfortunately :/ This for the PS3 version at least, i don't know about the other versions of the game.

    I don't know how this game is on ps4, but on ps3 it's...bad. Graphics are plain and without any detail. Audio isn't good too. Very little street sounds and the car engine sounds seems to be bugged. By reading reviews before buying the game I was prepared for the fact the ps3 version is graphically less appealing than the ps4, but this is a slap in the face. So buyer aware! The low rating here is truthful. 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
