May 27, 2014A superb game: the characters are well written, there are enough weapons to choose from and plenty of vehicles to drive. Hacking … you have to see it to believe it, truly great! The explosions in my opinion are excellent. This game also boasts many mission and side quests, it will definitely keep you busy for a while. For those who have waited so long, it was worth it, enjoy.
May 27, 2014I think most is qualifying bad, because they had overly high expectations. for me really with what little I've progressed, however I liked pretty Watch Dogs, with many new ... is exactly like Assassin's Creed 1, where the expectation was not high, when the Watch Dogs 2 out, there take out their best potential. but to be a new IP this phenomenal.
May 27, 2014Some of the gameplay mechanic is similiar to PlayStation Exclusive, The Last of Us. However, some of E3 2012-2013 part were mising or cut by Ubisoft such as; Hand-stealth, Gun sequense, dramatic story, etc... The gameplay psychic was using a low-life engine, Havok (also used in TLOU). Face it, this isn't GTA, or Saints Row, or any other kind of familiar sandbox game. I was having so much fun with the hacking part, by stealing personal information, bank account, taking over a network, but you just waiting for this cool game, until you give a good, or bad respond....… Expand
Jun 25, 2014Watch dogs is an amazing game, with a recollection of past ubisoft games to make one Great game.
Aiden isn't the best character, nor is he the deepest. But his intentions are true, and the interesting side characters he associates with are great and keep things interesting. I feel like WD creates it's own genre, coz of the hacking element. Everyone wants control, Aiden proves why he's the best.
It's your revenge tale, but with a twist. Aiden resembles Batman, a lot.
The most important part of a game. Basically the cover mechanics is from splinter cell, you know going backwards and forwards, side to side. It's really deep. Shooting is more Ghost reconish, with a hint of max Payne with the slow mo. driving is like driver SF. The stats for cars are from DSF. Parkour obviously Assassins creed. Stealth like Splinter. And then Hacking, it's mainly one button press, but this is a good thing, as it makes it fast and fulent in the action. All that's elements work very well. The menu systems are easy to navigate. The level up system and CTOS towers, gang operations, convoy are all from the great Far Cry games. All in all it's a blend of key elements of ubisoft past games made into one, that still feels familiar but fresh. Gameplay is fun, guns, cars, ruining, etc feel great.
Loads of Main missions, with a lot variety. Loads of side missions, lots of unlockables to keep things interesting. Such as guns, vehicles, outfits. Those mini games called 'digital trips' are amazing. It feels like a proper mini game. Alone is stealth based and feel like I Am legend, only with robots and it has survival elements too, ammo usuage and such. Madness is a driving game where you run over demons and complete objectives in a time limit. Spider tank, you just cause carnage, able to climb on sides of buildings etc. and Psyhdelic is a game where u try and hop on flowers lol. All are fun, and have unlocks. In game Videogames are good too. NVZN is a little Alien, wave based game. Where it takes place where ever your standing. And coin collect, is basically like mario, with parkour. And then there are games like chess (6 types), gambling (poker, slot machines), drinking games, cup ball game etc. then you got your convoy, gang operations, privacy invasion, qR codes, radio entry's to give more back story for characters. Heaps of stuff. All worthwhile surprisingly. 80+ game for sure. And yes you can buy guns, cars, outfits.
This game has the most lively city I've played in. Lots of NPCs, traffic, news reports. Lots of animations. 15,000 in fact. Textures are great, 30fps is steady too.
Guns sound great, cars sound awesome, voice acting is great, weather and hacking sounds are great, music is great during missions sort of techno dark tone.
Things I didn't like.
Car soundtrack, it's not bad but nothing like SR or gta 5
Repeated dialogue amongst NPCs regarding main story
Side note. Things worth mentioning.
You can set Difficulty. And it gets more challenging then most open world games, AKA gta, Sr etc. and it's fair too.
Car chases are a blast.
Hardly any glitches.
Jun 19, 2014It's the first game of the franchise. Of course, it has a lot of lame problems, including graphics and all... But I don't really care for graphcis. The physics is not that realistic, but that it isn't the game focus. The game is about hacking and doesn't disappoint in that topic. It's very fun walking on the Chicago streets seeing the civillian's information...
I liked W_D, and for a first game of the franchise, it's a great experience.… Expand
May 29, 2014People entered this game expecting GTA V. Those people need to put down this game, and go play GTA V not Watch Dogs. Watch Dogs is a great open world hacking game.
Common complaints about it are that the graphics don't look like the E3 2012 demonstration. They need to understand the game was running on a PC, and was configured to look that good. They also don't understand it was a pre rendered video, not live game play. So it will always look better.
People also complain about the Cars being unresponsive etc. Play a proper driving game, then this game, you'll see that this is pretty good. GTA V controls like pudding.
Overall the plot is really good, relatable for most people who have siblings, it is a fun game with a lot to do. Big open world city to explore. In the end if you go in expecting Watch Dogs, you'll get watch dogs, if you go in expecting anything else you shouldn't be playing this game.… Expand
Jun 6, 2014Most of the poor reviews were written by people with ultra-high expectations.Guys,the industry is not all that innovative.Titanfall,for example! Fresh title,great idea,but same gameplay we all know,except for the titans.The same happens here. And please,stop comparing to GTA,this loos like a Fanboy War. About the game itself: Graphics? Washed,but still looking very nice. Physics? No problems so far.
Story? Entertaining enough to keep me playing for some time
Gameplay? The hacking system could get harder as you progress through the game,but it´s still a lot of fun to play.
FINAL SCORE:Great! 9.0/10.0… Expand
Jun 7, 2014This game is really fun! Of course it gets boring if you do criminal convoys for 15 hours straight...Look, let's be honest: The game has PERFECT phasing!
Oh, and the graphics controversy...You are just being dumb if you think this game looks bad..It looks better then titanfall, how about that?
Jul 3, 2014I just LOVE Watch_Dogs! First off, the profiling is awesome, because I like to judge NPCs. The missions are fun, the screwing around is fun, the driving is weighty. The cops are BRUTAL, they almost made me want to change my ways! And, to the people complaining about the graphics, **** off.
Jul 24, 2014seriously, the game wasn't bad at all. i just finish the game in 3 days and i really like the story where he going through, i know it not the best gameplay of all time, like driving a cars in the games the people really critics it because it not realistic than GTA 5, i confirm that, but the only things why because i like the game, it the hacking, the story, and the characters. i know they got some people saying truth like they work 5 years on the game and he decided to delayed and it worst than the first gameplay we seen when he announced. and too, we got critics about glitch but me i like glitch because it funny sometime, it depending, like if your get stuck on something and you can't move and you need to quit the game because your stuck when you was doing a mission and you need to restart the mission. i understand that. so i don't hate the game but sometime a was raging because when you cover yourself, sometime he got a enemy on your side and you got some difficulty to get off from the object and you get kill. so the game still not the best so far but i enjoyed it… Expand
Aug 12, 2014Great game, gets fun when u get your way around the hacking system and got some enjoyable puzzles, not too hard, but not too handhelding either. Online is alot of fun, you can do stuff like going into other players games as civilians trying to hack them for an amount of secons without them detecting and killing you. theres also stuff like racing ect. ai isnt bad, enemies are good at hiding, sometimes i barely believe the red spots that shows where they are on my gps in game.… Expand
