    Watch Dogs for Wii U is a solid sandbox, with good ideas and an original setting, but missions get boring and some game mechanics are not well implemented.

    While Watch Dogs is not as brilliant as it could have been, it's a good game for sandbox fans.

    Watch Dogs has some smart gameplay mechanics. Hacking is a great experience full of possibilities, and the game perfectly combines stealth situations with good gunplay. However, Watch Dogs has two problems: driving isn't at all polished and has some graphical issues. The Wii U version doesn't justify the delay.

    Watch Dogs comes on Wii U six months after the original release with no extra content, no DLCs and some framerate issues: definitely not a big deal for Nintendo users.

    How did Ubisoft manage to take 6 months to port the PS3/X360 versions of Watch Dogs onto the Wii U? A very long wait that's justified by nothing when we see the low quality of the graphics and the lack of improvements whatsoever. It might be worth a try to those who only own a Wii U and hence will never experience GTA 5.

    Watch Dogs for Wii U is still a fun game but it is just poorly made. There are a lot of technical problems and driving in particular is really bad. We had to wait six extra months for a mediocre game.

    Technically speaking, this Wii U version of Watch_Dogs is awful. Add to this the lack of control while moving the camera, targeting or driving, and we can say that the 6 months-delay wasn't worth the wait... Next!

    Its a cool feature to hack the people with the pad or us the map.

    I did not like how Ubisoft treated us Wii U owners, however, that does not decide how good a game is.

    The game is solid and worth it.

    The game is solid and worth it. That's really all I have.

    These negative reviews are being biased against Ubisoft for treating us poorly, not based on the actual game itself.

It didnt came with any dlc, because the other platforms did have dlc and it came 6 months earlier. But at its core its still Watch dogs and it still is a solid title. Expand
