    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.

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....

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.

Very littleI 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

It comes to a point where it disturbs the gaming experience. And it's impossible not to compare to GTA V and think how bad this game really is (not only in graphics).
