    While its dystopian, futuristic London may smell of Grand Theft Auto open worlds, Watch Dogs Legion's approach to recruiting any NPC differentiates the formula in a unique way, creating a fascinating blend of freedom, action, stealth, and roguelikes.

    Watch Dogs: Legion is a far more palatable experience on PS5 thanks to its vastly-improved load times and splendid visual upgrades. The only real technical gripes are that there’s little in the way of DualSense implementation, and the framerate, while steady, hasn’t been upped. Its base problems of open-world fatigue and messy storytelling are still problems that can’t be so easily fixed and still remain a significant barrier to enjoyment. It’ll give you a dazzling trip to London, but you wouldn’t want to stay there.
  3. 60
    What you end up with is an experience that shows a ton of promise, but ends up being entirely average. It’s hard to call Watch Dogs Legion a bad game outright. It’s a serviceable, if traditional, open-world game with a boring story and novelty mechanics that play out better on paper than in execution. The PS5 version makes expected improvements to visuals and load times, but isn’t a standout example of a “next-gen” title.

    Watch Dogs Legion might look and run better than ever on PS5, but that means little when the game itself struggles to break the boundaries of mediocrity. This next-gen version remains unchanged from its PS4 counterpart as far as gameplay goes, so the boosted performance does little to hide the title's underlying issues. No matter how well it runs, Watch Dogs Legion needs to sort out how it plays.

El hecho de poder coger a cualquier ciudadano no es algo que me haya llamadoEs uno de los Watch dogs que a nivel narrativo me ha gustado más. El hecho de poder coger a cualquier ciudadano no es algo que me haya llamado nada la atención. al final me he quedado toda la partida con la agente de Albion y arreando. Lo empecé en PC y jugué muchas horas hasta que un bug en Ubisoft Connect me jodió las partidas guardadas. Lo he rejugado en PS5 y la verdad me parece un muy buen juego, muy disfrutable y un doblaje al castellano muy bueno. Expand

    Non-lethal weapons are boring and the story is bland. Watch Dogs 1&2 were much netter...

    4k 30fps is annoying but acceptable. Controller feels laggy.
    Driving physics seems to be the same as Watchdogs 2, which is very bad.

    Some key settings like “long press triangle to get out of the car” and “long press right button to open weapon menu” is just idiotic.

    The aiming when trying to hack is problematic too, sometimes you just need to aim and wait for 2 seconds before the “connection” happens.

    I pre-ordered the game when it was first available because I liked Watch Dogs 2 a lot. I noticed these problems at launch, have been waiting for fixes since then. It’s been so long but ubi still not making any progress?

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I dont know how Ubisoft manages to release games that are capped at 30fps on the next-gen consoles... on top of that its not even a stable 30fps, Input delays on top of input delays, Valhalla runs much smoother on the PS5 compared to this 30fps joke of a game Expand
