    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Bardzo fajna gra, interesująca fabuła świetny hacking fajny model jazdy, niezła rozgrywka z użyciem broni , fajna ścieżka dźwiękowa no i możliwość grania na Gamepadzie na którym gra wygląda rewelacyjnie a do tego dochodzi świetna animacja postaci . Jedyny taki tytuł na Wii U . Polecam wszystkim prawdziwym graczom Expand

Desuso catastrófico del gamePad, peores gráficos, peor FrameRate y peor jugabilidad, contrasta un 100% con lo que es un buen port como lo es Need For Speed: Most Wanted U y la versión de PS4 del juego, lastima que una gran consola como lo es Wii U reciba esta basura de ports.

    I don't want to spend a lot of time to write in details why this game is bad as I already wasted 70 EUR.

    - Graphics are a shame : Strong
    I don't want to spend a lot of time to write in details why this game is bad as I already wasted 70 EUR.

    - Graphics are a shame :
    Strong and permanent aliasing (welcome back to the PS2 era)
    Half of the world pops up (when driving above 20 MPH)

    - Gameplay is at an alpha stage :
    Driving a car makes me laugh
    Driving a bike makes me cry
    Can't jump (and this is annoying)

    This is a first time I write a review online because it is the first time I felt raped.
    Also, because I find it less painful than actually playing to the game.

    I am sure some part of you is still thinking that Watch Dogs could be a good deal if bought used against 20 bucks. It is NOT.

    This game is boring, totally (and will make you sick).

The AI is absolutely horrid, the hacking isn't even all that interesting, and nearly all of the missions are the same. It's kinda fun for about 2 hours, but then things get repetitive. The city isn't that interesting and doesn't look that good either. It's a good game to pick up if you manage to find it for $5 or less. Expand

The ARThe 'hacking' is horrible, the health/hurt is horrible, the driving and cars are horrible. After a while, everything's the boring same. The AR mini games are fun, thank god for those, but only once or twice. The problem isn't just not living up to the enormous hype, it's just not a good game. The story is ridiculous and I can't help but HATE the very self absorbed, annoying main character. Zero replay value. Expand
