    Watch Dogs does do some new things and does them very well. With few exceptions it’s a polished and fun game and well-worth a look.

    In the end Watch Dogs has plenty going for it, without quite living up to the hype. But, Aiden Pearce is a great character, and a very nice design, and the story has an engaging cyber-noir vibe going for it. Just keep your eyes down and your smartphone charged.

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. Expand

    After a long time...finally WD comes out and hmmmmm it does not impress that much!!! at least in xbox360 or ps3...
    1- story lacks a bit ,
    After a long time...finally WD comes out and hmmmmm it does not impress that much!!! at least in xbox360 or ps3...
    1- story lacks a bit , mostly as a prequel to the WD 2
    2- graphics is the main problem which was downgraded to below the standards
    3- chigago is big and vast but the graphic issue makes it vague
    4 - gameplay nor thrills nor disappoints ...driving is mediocre too ...action and gunfights was better
    5 - production values like voice and SFX was good but it is very quiet..my TVs volume was in 30 when i want to hear it properly
    Overally 6-7 is the most fair grade
    try lot better next time ubisoft and dont make games for an old console that u cant maintain ur promises

That said, I really feel forI never bought into the hype for this game, so I can't say that I'm terribly disappointed with how it came out. That said, I really feel for the people who were looking forward to it, because it's pretty mediocre in just about every way. It's definitely not a bad game, but it's not a great one, either. It's passable.
    The hacking mechanics are very refreshing and fun to play with at first, but they soon become boring (much like the rest of the game). For such an innovative concept, everything is truly derivative, from the game's repetitive mission structure to its lackluster narrative. To be honest, I hadn't the slightest idea what was happening in the story until its final act - the world is never really flushed out. We're introduced to the Blume Corporation, the hacker group Dedsec, the ctOS system... But none of these players are ever adequately developed. That leaves the world feeling very hollow, and its a hard one to get invested in. There will inevitably be comparisons to the GTA series, but I feel this game is more similar to Ubisoft's original Assassin's Creed title. Great concept, well-executed mechanics, but ultimately a game with a lot of flaws. Hopefully Ubisoft can do more with the sequel (we all know one's coming). Heck, look how Assassin's Creed II came out. Fingers crossed.

    Honestly you would think ubisoft could come up with some fresh ideas. The whole interface is pretty much a copy and paste job from Far CryHonestly you would think ubisoft could come up with some fresh ideas. The whole interface is pretty much a copy and paste job from Far Cry and/or Assassins Creed. Does climbing radio towers and syncing with your environment sound familiar at all? Although its not a bad formula per se, you would think that a little variation could be worked in.

    How about, as an example, coming up with a character you could actually care about to play as. Here's a crazy idea ubisoft, how about a customisable character that you can relate to rather than the bland beardy loser we are stuck with here.

    This isn't helped by the environment being unconvincing and lacking any real detail. The game suffers from some pretty terrible driving mechanics with cars that have no brakes, a tendency to spin out even at low speeds and collisions that are a bit like being on a bouncy castle. And oh, my, god, the vehicle sounds - did they sample a selection of lawnmowers?

    However, for all its flaws, it is vaguely entertaining for a long weekend. There are the beginnings of a decent idea here so lets hope ubisoft hire some designers with a little imagination by the time the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth sequels come along.

Then the magic phone that you have WTF. The hacking is not even challenging just press the button and bam you just hacked. Expand
