    Watch Dogs: Legion has an enormous amount of replay value and a very compelling storyline with unexpected twists along the way, especially for those who want something thought provoking and gritty.

    It’s a fun stealth-action open-world hacking game, but it’s one that falls under its own weight in many ways. With the technical problems of the Xbox One version smoothed out and enhancements to the visuals and performance across the board, I can much more easily recommend the Xbox Series X version but that doesn’t fix the core design problems. Watch Dogs: Legion is incredibly impressive, but only insomuch as it is flawed. Thankfully, there is still a competent third-person open-world game at its core.
  3. The problem, unfortunately, is that something feels missing without a true hero character with a deep backstory and lots of personal demons and vendettas to drive the narrative forward.

    Watch Dogs: Legion sees DedSec return to a hugely impressive representation of near-future London that looks and sounds amazing but can't long cover for the fact the core gameplay here is repetitive, janky stuff that's barely evolved since the days of Aiden Pearce. Traversal is hampered by uninspired, tanky vehicles, combat is scruffy, enemy AI disappointing, and hacking and sneaking highly repetitive. The "play as anyone" mechanic too, much vaunted pre-release, starts out fun but soon reveals itself to be a superfluous addition whose main effect is to rob the narrative of a proper central protagonist. Fans of the series may well still find plenty to enjoy here but in the end this is an old-fashioned, run-of-the-mill open world offering dressed up as something altogether more futuristic and fascinating.

    I have just finished this game and I can say: This is one of the best games I have ever played in my life, and I have played a lot of them!I have just finished this game and I can say: This is one of the best games I have ever played in my life, and I have played a lot of them! This game has one of the best, most realistic and darkest storylines ever written by Ubisoft. Playing this game in hard mode with permadeath is an amazing challenge!! The concept of recruiting literally anyone in the map is brilliant and works very well, and since there are a lot of special characters with unique skills and weapons, there's an almost pokemon vibe to it. But the biggest star here is the city of london, by far the most immersive city I've seen in a video game, and I've spent many hours just exploring it. Expand

    Nothing bad, nothing special, but open world London is really cool tho. Wait for sale.

    Not quite as good as the first game, but I definitely think that Legion has a lot going for it and it's certainly better than the second game.

    I gave it a chance even with the theme that I dont like with the teenage target group, with those hip/punk/porkhelmet/clothes stuff, and thoseI gave it a chance even with the theme that I dont like with the teenage target group, with those hip/punk/porkhelmet/clothes stuff, and those immature sentences. Because sometimes I like the Ubi formula, I enjoyed Farcry 5. But here the gameplay is more generic and unpolished.
    Sometimes I accidently jumped to a camera because the distraction feature was not reloaded yet (they have the same button mapping), which was very annoying. Also sometimes you cant see how long the damn reload for the distraction feature needs.
    When trying to at least finish the story, the already boring gameplay slows you down even further, with an infiltration mission where you cant run, and which is done 100 times better in Hitman. The main missions changes from one plot to another, when it starts to get interesting, it cuts off and starts a new story with a spoken sentence like "it hurts to let go that person, but we have to find out more about the new thing". I thinked about to force me through this further, I saw that I had a playtime of 5 hours, and the internet said that the main story takes about 18 hours, so I only said no thanks. I dont want to waste my time further, for almost 2 times the same amount of time that I already spent.

Basically, the game DOES NOT SAVE and Ubisoft has so far refused to release an immediate fix. I have never heard of an issue lasting so long with a video game post-release. Ubisoft massively dropped the ball with this one. Expand
