    Fun open world environment

    Playing this game quickly reveals how much fun it can be to create absolute chaos in an open world environment. It's easy to spend a lot of time away from the revenge oriented story line and eavesdrop into the often jarring secret lives of the people on the street. Mini games and side quests vary from repetitive to those with a high level of difficulty. The hacking abilities are a boatload of fun and can be challenging to figure out . I played the game on pc and there are technical issues, many of which have been addressed by the community. Driving with keyboard and mouse can be difficult at best. A controller helps. Graphics set to a high (ultra) level can bring a powerful gaming system to its' knees. Worth buying.

    Watch Dogs is a very in depth complete open world game. Lots to do with story and is also a play as you want style of game. Wanna be bad and go around on a killing spree go for it, or you wanna be the hero and stop crime where it starts go for that as well. Its all up to you on how you want to play the game. The online game play takes some time to get used to as far as the hacking and stopping the hacking from happening to you but once you figure it out its a blast. The real only drawback to the game is the poor execution of Ubisofts Uplay client in a nutshell it is horrible and makes for aggravating logins from time to time. This was a brief review of the PC version of the game. The only reason this doesnt get a 5 is the Uplay client aggravation.

    Not a GTA knock off

    Overall I think Watch Dogs is a fun game. I do think Ubisoft could of put more work in certain areas but no game is perfect. There are a lot of trolls out there that might bash this game as a GTA knock off but this game is far from that. Take it for what it's worth, this game won't please everyone. I think it's a nice change of pace from the other games I was playing.

    It's a reasonably generic Ubisoft third-person open world action-adventure game with uninspiring writing and an unsympathetic protagonist. None of that makes the game bad though - it's actually quite competent and fun to play, and the multiplayer is worth experiencing. Mind that the game requires Uplay and does not activate on Steam.

    Running on a 920D0 system paired with a 290X 4gb Asus card. Runs pretty smooth despite reports of stuttering. I think the game just needs lots of ram. Video and system ram both. Graphics look good. SweetFx and mods make it look better. Whats not so great is I just don't have time to play a long winded kind of game.

    I got the game when it was on sale for $8 on PC and it's pretty good. It takes a pretty powerful PC to run it well, and even then the graphics still have to be adjusted to run properly. I had many issued when I first ran it with microstutter, but patches seemed to help this issue.

    For all of the hype leading up to the game's launch, the game was a little bit disappointing. It took a while for my Logitech G13 advanced gameboard to start working. Once it started working, gameplay was a much easier. The storyline for the game is not that compelling.

    The game looks good and plays well. Had a few bugs but what doesn't. Feels like grand theft auto but not quite their. Car chases can be a bit drawn out from time to time. But overall a good play with plenty to do.

    Ok game but not worth the initial amount asked. Buggy in places and not as open world add initially presented. Worth $15-20 at most.

    I really liked their unique take on online multiplayer. I would have liked to see at least one competitive PvP shooter mode.
