    Ubisoft Toronto's 'Play as Anyone' system results in the publisher's most unique open-world game in years. Just don't take it too seriously.

    Watch Dogs Legion is a very good game with which you don’t get bored! The ability to recruit an infinite number of characters with different abilities is enjoyable and the universe and neat, whether it is the story or the characters. This episode, without being a revolution, separates itself from the two previous ones and offers a fun experience that we do not want to let go. A single desire: to play to recruit activists, to hack a thousand systems and to liberate London.

    Watch Dogs: Legion elevates the formula allowing to control every character in the game, a unique and complex game mechanic with many possibilities... That doesn't go well with the narrative. But still, it's a fantastic action, stealth and hacking open world game.

    Watch Dogs Legion promises a futuristic London, where you can play as everybody. Unfortunately, it has a lot of flaws that should be perfected in an already delayed game.

    The latest Watch Dogs does seem ripe for criticism, but at its core is a solid, fun title that is yet to leave the disk tray. Cruising through the London suburbs is a thoroughly enjoyable experience with a lot of replay-ability, if only to use the games camera mode to snap a selfie with a landmark. Some of the missions are also creatively designed and structured in a way that will live long in the memory and be the talking points with any friends on the fence about purchasing. The biggest downfall of Watch Dogs: Legion is the promise of something more. With no real incentive for recruitment outside characters given in missions, it remains very much a title for the generation. With a little more thought put into the mechanics and gameplay, focusing on how they could really have been revolutionised, this could have been an experience as future-proof as the world portrayed within it.

    Watch Dogs: Legion is more of the same, albeit with more technical problems. Even the most diehard of Watch Dogs fans should wait for a patch or two before jumping in.

    Watch Dogs Legion is unfortunately a boring, middling game without much creativity to speak of.

Tons of people on youtube are enjoying it, ign review got over 15 000 likes. And metascore 76 for pc and 77 for xbox one are very solid. Not every game is 9 or needs to be 9. So far everything has worked fine. Graphics are nice as expected. Npc recruitment is fun, way better than blank npc's that watch dogs 2 had. Expand

Не доработанная, но очень крутая (в перспективе) механика рекрутирования, прям ожидаю от Юбиков развития этой темы. Очень красивый открытый мир, в прочем как и всегда у Юбисофт. Дерьмовый сюжет правда, но терпимо. Техническое исполнение тоже не на высоте, анимации 89-й год. Но я люблю игры от Юбисофт, их открытые миры (хоть и пыстые), это потрясающе. Expand

    Pros:
    - Good music? Nice UK rap and drum and bass.
    - Good amount of clothes to customize?
    - Play as anyone in the streets.
    - Big Shaq is tight.

    Cons:
    - Very outdated shooting and gunplay. Sure, you can play as a professional hitman like John Wick but the whole thing feels very 2010. After playing The Last of Us 2 and experiencing the shooting mechanics on the Wolfenstein series, Max Payne 3, there's too much of bullet sponge enemies, not enough blood and gore, and not enough animations. The AI is just quite dumb. The stealth takedowns are just not satisfying enough. They are too effortless to achieve. The gunplay is definitely an inferior version of The Division, even though The Division was just average at best.

    - The sounds of the guns barely have any weight in them. Sounds just like they got audio from stock and pasted it to the game. Same goes for punching people as well.

    - A very politically woke game?
    - Barely existing story?
    - 30 FPS on the PS4?
    - The lip sync is just...terrible.
    - Some of the voices totally feels very automated and unnatural.
    - A lot of...ugly looking characters? (But then again, Ubisoft have a lot of terribly looking characters in their games)
    - Missions have barely any variety. Go to one place. Hack something. Use spiderbot. Stun someone. Collect something. Hear some dialogue. Move on.
    - The driving in the game still feels bad. Even in comparison to the GTA series, this game falls in behind. All the cars feels like they are rubberband powered, all the handling is extremely tight, no sense of acceleration as every car reaches their top speed in like 2 seconds. It just doesn't put immersion when you are being chased by Albion. Way too easy to escape and you never feel a sense of urgency.

    Overall, once you played the first couple of hours, I would say you've pretty much seen everything and played the whole game already.
