Great story and gameplay, but wears off quick.
Watch Dogs is a game about Aidan Pearce, a former thug whose past led to a violent family tragedy, bla bla bla, whatever. When I first played, I thought the game was uber amazing, marveling over every little detail. But later, it started to get repetetive. Punch this guy, shoot him, profile her, etc. It's ABSOLUTELY AMAZING ONLINE, but only on next gen or PC. The 360 and PS3 didn't have the two online gameplay modes I really wanted, Decryption and Online Free Roam. Decryption is the basic TD style gameplay with a hacking twist, and free roam is pretty self explanatory. I bought the game for 360 at first, but then I realized this and traded it in for PC. Overall, great game, but single player free roam gets boring fast. In the end, though, I'd say good game, I think you should buy it.
NO Preorder Bonus for PC
Just a cautionary note if you're planning to preorder the PC version of the game. This version apparently does NOT include any preorder bonus. Only the console versions do. Caveat Emptor.
Awful on high end PC's
This game what a disappointment, First let me say my PC is way above the recommended requirements for this game, and it doesn't run smooth at all, the frame rate drops in and out so bad you can't complete some driving missions do to the car jumping all over the place, low to mid grade PC's aren't having this issue I'm told just the high end stuff like mine, something about bad coding in the game! I shouldn't have to drop my settings down to nothing for this game to work when my PC's spec's are above and beyond the recommended settings.I wont buy Watch dogs 2 until i hear first hand from high end PC gamers that its fixed on runs smooth on there systems.
About the pre-order bonus...
I believe the PC disk pre-order at Gamestop will include the same bonus content that the PC Download pre-order has. This is just speculation, but why would they only leave the PC disk version out? I would think that if both the disk AND download versions had no bonus, it would be safe to say that there isn't one for PC at GS. I would suggest asking your local GS employee, they probably have all that stuff in their system.
No PC preorder bonus?
SO there is absolutely no reason for avid PC gamers to pre-purchase this game? I might wait to demo it on a friend's machine then or wait for gameplay trailers.
Good Game BUT!
The game is good especially the pc version. BUT be warned the online play has already been hacked. Was playing the group data pick up mode today and we already had a person cheating by having god mode turned on. They had infinite ammo and other infinite things. The game does not have a function where you can report the cheater. Cant use shadowplay to record the video because Geforce experience is not compatible with it so i cant record the cheater.
By the videos looks like it's going to be an awesome game. The graphics also look very good. Like someone said earlier hope it's worth the wait and the money. I will definitely pre-order this game.
Hope it's good and worth waiting for -- as well as worth the money.. The prompt said this wasn't long enough, maybe it is now...
In A Good Look
This looks very exciting and different as you can explore the city of Chicago and hacking is the key to succeed in this game. The story mode will seem fun and entertaining!
