Great game, GO BUY IT!
I haven't been this hooked on a game in a long time. I'll admit that it does copy game play elements of other games but who cares? Fun is fun and this game is fantastic to play. I won't post anything that might spoil anything for anybody but the story is great, the setting is great, the game play is top notch. Ubisoft has actually came close to delivering on all the hype surrounding this game. If you think this game fits the style of game you like do not hesitate to buy it, even if it isn't your cup of tea, buy it anyway, I would be willing to bet that you will find something in the game that interests you.
This game is absolutely fun! I mean if you dont pay attention to the bugs or a lack of luster on the graphics this game can be extremely fun with a group of friends! If you dont have friends then im sorry. Yes we were promised better graphics and a breakthrough of gaming history but this game does just fine. Im impressed because first of all its better than most xbox one games out there at the moment! I mean titanfall got too repetitive, Son of Rome got boring fast, BF4 was a complete let down compared to its previous installments, and Forza 5 cant keep ones imagination going. I dont praise this game but i do have to say that it is better than most of the ones out there and if you dont like the Assasins Creed series then you dont have much of an option haha. Im not sure if its worth the 60 just yet but wait for like a $10 cut and you wont regret it. So take my advice and try this game out because it sure adds fun to the same boring repetitive games we get.
I bought this game for the Xbox One yesterday when it was released. I was already excited as I watched the trailers and reviews of this game. Playing the game is a whole different experience. If you go into playing the game thinking it's another GTA you will be disappointed, it isn't GTA even though it is a open world with endless possibilities. I felt comfortable with the controls, you can change the controls if you aren't comfortable with the default controls. The graphics are amazing, the story line is amazing, the missions aren't boring; so much fun. I have seen negative reviews and the people that are mainly giving it negative reviews have yet to play this game because they don't want to spend $60.00. I haven't been this excited about a game since GTA V (which is another amazing game that I own and love).
Its no GTA, BUT ITS STILL A GOOD GAME.
This is a good game, its no GTA 5, but still a very good game. Definitely a BUY GAME, once you start playing WATCH DOGS, you will KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU PLAYED THIS GAME BEFORE, it is the same exact game as SLEEPING DOGS, it has the same style of gameplay, driving, and graphics as SLEEPING DOGS, the only difference is that it takes place in DETROIT, instead of CHINA. I was a little mislead cuz Sleeping Dogs was made by Square Enix, and this game was done by UBISOFT. Needless to say I was a little disappointed cuz I felt like I already played this game, but its still a good game, cuz you have way more control using your cell phone. So if are still hesitant on buying this game, go play SLEEPING DOGS, and you will know exactly what kind of gameplay you will be using. LOL, I should have know cuz each title had DOGS in it, so I guess it did try to warn us. Sleeping Dogs was a good game, and so is Watch Dogs. Its NOT GAME OF THE YEAR, but its still a good game.
Chicago at its peak
Watch dogs is not GTA, it's not saints row, So what is it? Well, It's watch dogs basically. You're Aiden Pearce and Intelligent hacker you could say. The story isn't all that, it's actually lack luster throughout the campaign. You might find yourself hearing less about the good stuff and more of the boring stuff. You got skill trees. From hacking to combat, to driving and explosives, some are rather pointless but don't take away the fact that your hacking skills can be amazing. Occasional glitches are about of the game perhaps online where you might run into a few online matches glitches which could be ignored. The free roam in the game is slightly crazy! You got your side missions, criminal convoys which are basically stop this guy from doing a crime. Or do you want to be the criminal like in most games, but it affects your reputation and you will be reported when seen on sight or heard about, pick carefully on your rep. This game is a great game, I found it better for the free roam. But despite the no jumping and lack of hand to hand combat, it's still worth the shot and other mishaps.
Pretty fun game, but expected a lot more!
I've been waiting on this release for so long, and I've got to say I was expecting a lot more. The driving is horrible and you are most likely to wreck everytime you hop in a vehicle. Nothing like gta 5 driving, nor is there any customizing of cars..no garages either. I hate the fact that you can't change the camera zoom of your 3rd person, so you have to deal with him being super freaking close to the TV all the time. Overall the game is pretty fun, a change from gta 5, but I did expect a whole lot more, especially with them delaying it several times. I can see it getting old quick because you basically do the same stuff over and over, and you gain a lot of money easily...but a few guns and different outfits is all you can use your money for. Definitely not worth the 59.99 price, as you can see used pro price is already 49.99. Hope this review helps and FYI it was done on my cell so it's not going to sound like the most intelligent review out there!
Great Game but not lasting appeal
When I initially started playing WD I was disappointed because of how slow the game moved. But I did not give up on the game and kept on with the story line missions. It has kept getting better. I really love the open world, which is very similar to GTA. This game is a lot less filthy than GTA which I was happy about. (profanity mostly so far) The missions are involved because you have to figure out how to get into closed off areas and on some missions you cannot let yourself be detected. The hiding behind walls, crouching, etc works really well. The vehicles are great but the horn and engine sounds were a little reverby and synthetic. I do wish you could punch and physically attack pedestrians, but that is not an option. Cop chases are difficult but fun, very similar to GTA. Love how you can hide in your vehicle and try to ditch the cops. Weapons are great, very dynamic and large variety. Story line is great and very in-depth with great movie like playability. Overall, I think this game will not disappoint whether your a hard core gamer or a casual. Buy it!
Ignore bad mouthers. This game is beyond awesome!
I don't see the point nor reason behind those who gives this game low reviews. The graphics is realistic and awesome looking. The audio in the game is incredible.. Now there was maybe once, twice tops, when the voice wasn't matching the subtitles. As in they spoke and than 5 seconds later subtitles popped up. But only happened once or twice. Wasn't a biggie and only happened during a police chase. The story is a bit short, I beated it with 25 hours of game play but that's including doing a few side quests and a few random moments when I went away from the console to do stuff such as a store run, food, etc. There is different side quest missions that are like small stories to their own. Than their are points in the game that ignites a small video of his past. The game has high replayability. You even get to choose how you go about the game...Playing it as a good guy throughout the game or as a bad guy.
I was not impressed with this game. If you bought a next gen system you are probably expecting next gen graphics. I bought this game for the PS4 and visually it looks about on par with Grand Theft Auto 4; which should not be the case, this game should not have last gen graphics. If I wanted last gen graphics I would have bought a last gen game. I wanted next gen graphics so I bought a next gen game. Since we are on the subject, This game is basically Grand Theft Auto with the ability to hack some electronics. The combat system, specifically taking cover and moving around feels like Gears of War except less polished. The way the story is developed in the beginning is poorly executed. They really didn't make me care about the main character. I wasn't hooked on the plot like I should have been; there were no attention grabbers.
Very Fun Game
I am almost done with the campaign and it has been a fun game to play. It takes a long time to complete all the side missions such as the Fixer Contracts, Gang Hide Outs, and Criminal Convoys. I like the open world concept of being able to travel on a map and the story is good. I did a lot of the side missions early which earned me lots of XP- which earned me lots of skill points. I used my skill points to get most of the hacking skills first and some crafting for explosives which made things easier. I recommend getting the "helicopter disable" skill when police chases get too hard because that helicopter will sniper you while the cops are chasing you making it very hard to get away...Also, there are skills for extra batteries for your smart phone- get them because the bridges and road traps you trigger uses battery juice fast and you will end up in a police chase with a dead battery lol... I'm not sure which one is my favorite but Laura Croft Tomb Raider and Assasins Creed Blag Flag were good too. Didn't like Titanfall or Thief but Call of Duty Ghosts was a fun but kinda short game story and not open world.
