If you've been swept up in the pitchfork grabbing mob bashing Watch Dogs for little else other than it's graphics you probably haven't even played the game much. Yes, the graphics have been toned down. But imagine the backlash if Ubisoft released on PS4 a game that looked like the trailers and then on PS3 released a game that was... well the videos explain all.
The game is set around Aiden Pearce, a vigilante. That's all you need to know. The story is bland and cliche, if you buy games for the story experience you won't enjoy this. The game struggled to provide any motivation for the character yet fails spectacularly. If you see a review praising the story, it's probably a troll.
The gameplay is basically an open world stealth game with the addition of controlling elements of the world. The hacking isn't gimmicky and is legitimately helpful. Take this example:
I've stealth killed a guy and a different guard spots him. I bring down the load on a nearby forklift to block his path and remain stealthy and take him out. Highlights include several bases of this evil corporation Blume and the gang hideouts which require you to stealth kill the enemy.
Not spectacular.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.0Dec 15, 2012There are very few games these days that change a genre, that provide new light and inspire everyone in the gaming industry, halo 4... ISN'TThere are very few games these days that change a genre, that provide new light and inspire everyone in the gaming industry, halo 4... ISN'T one of those games. It's sad that since halo 3 the halo series has become another generic yearly sequel, much like the previously excellent Assassins creed series and Call of Duty. I used to enjoy Xbox, this reminds me of how much I despise it now. I seriously thought this would be a change, all the reviewers were saying so. Of course not. Are we PS3 "fanboys" [I think you mean PLAYERS] envious? Of course not! I've just been down my electronic store and sold my Xbox. I used to like both, but this game proves how much money these people at microsoft get! Spoiler alert, the ending is another halo 2 ending! It's about as well made as
Cortana: Oh no what are you gonna do chief?
Cheif: I'll kill them all... tomorrow. Halo 5 comes out september 20th 2013 while stocks last.
I don't understand why people would enjoy this game, especially with the convoluted canon! Also the fans are evil but it's not exactly 343's fault. Overall:
Graphics 9.0 One of the few things this game gets right.
Brilliant... if you read the entire wiki. Gameplay: 2.7 Generic at the best of times, downright awful at the worst.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.8May 10, 2012Yeah, the graphics are great, not awesome... But does that matter.... hell no.
Killcams- sweet and realistic. ALL organs are there. BallsYeah, the graphics are great, not awesome... But does that matter.... hell no.
Killcams- sweet and realistic. ALL organs are there. Balls shots are satisfying, especially on hitler...
Levels- There are multiple ways to complete levels, but no encouragements to go off the beaten path and explore. Kill tallyl- not bad in single player, awesome in multiplayer.
Ai- Turn the AI difficulty up if you find it easy. because at "Veteran" i find it slighly harder. Slightly stupid when they forget about you after a while hidden.
Buy this... now.
Trade in your Call of Duties, and your Battlefields.
I'll be surprised if it doesn't get a VGA.
Sniper elite v2 is a must have.… Expand
