Not worth your time
Watch dogs is fun, until you beat the story. Once you've done the story there really is just about nothing else to do. All of the side missions together take about three hours to complete. It doesn't have the major problem of repetitive content like the Assassin's Creed series, Watch Dogs problem is the near complete lack of additional content. The story is short and fairly predictable, and the most interesting characters are rarely seen so that they can focus on the usual character archetypes. the most expansive bit of side content is the privacy invasions, of which there are 30; but each of them takes about five minutes to finish and the only ting you're rewarded with is a bunch of lazy vulgar jokes.
I bought Watch Dogs in June, 2014. After a month of hearing that it was good, bad, good, bad, I got the game. I hated it after I played it for like a month, so I uninstalled it on my Xbox. About a year later, my friend got it for his birthday along with an Xbox One, so I installed the game again. I loved the game much more when I was playing with my friend on the Xbox One for the first time. Then, today when I finished a mission, I lost all of my skills from the Skills Tree thing. I worked so hard to get all of those skills. I even lost the beginners kit which you get from the first mission of the game, and I can't buy the skill. So hacking, which is the biggest part of the game, is off my Watch Dogs smart phone. It was a good game until that glitch. I recommend you buy the game, but beware of the crazy glitches that aren't funny at all.
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.
Overhyped into Failure
I'll start with the good: This game is beautiful! Though it looks much better on PC it's still a very pretty game and has a lot of complex details that make every little thing a lot better.
There are a lot of complex things you can do as a hacker... Which brings me to the bad stuff. It's nearly impossible to execute the advanced controls on side missions or when you're just messing around. The main story has every cool aspect of this game and quite frankly the story stinks.
I would not recommend this game. You're better off playing Assassin's Creed or Grand Theft Auto for whichever aspect of this game that you seek.
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.
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!
Seriously a great game
This game really is good. The combat is satisfying, the mini-games seem weird but are pretty fun, the vehicles are easy and fun to drive, and the side missions add just enough distraction to extend the game and not bog it down. The hacking was less than I was expecting, but I got over that pretty quick and realized that if the hacks were any more complicated, it'd change the game too much. Story is a little iffy in my book, but not bad (3.5 outta 5 in all honesty). The best way to describe this using other popular game series is probably a little of Assassin's Creed, Sleeping Dogs, and throw in some useful hacks. Replay is decent, considering how good or bad you are changes little things in the game. I've put it down, picked it up, let friends borrow it and still find it pretty fun. All in all, it's a very good game and well worth the pre-owned price.
This game looks awesome the graphics are amazing. LOL my friend told me that the PS4 has an exclusive for this game I laughed on the inside cause we have smart glass we can use our cell phones and our tablets to help us through our games the PS4 doesn't have that.
now this game is gonna be fun. you play as a guy, got no superpowers or incredible climbing abilities, that can hack into all sorts of stuff in a city. The multiplayer function looks like fun, having someone invade your world to hack you or to help you in someway. Looking forward to playing this.
