      Story Good - Open World Bad - Driving Ugly

      Posted

      I'll start with the good. The story line is well done. I found each main mission and side quest fun and engaging. The story was easy to follow despite it being based on complicated schemes by major corporations and governments layered with the hackers' attempts to set things right. There are multiple ways to complete a mission. Sometimes I felt like sneaking around to complete something. Other times I just went in guns blazing. I could even do a mix of the two. I never got bored each time I had to hack something tucked away deep in a heavily guarded facility. I could go on about how great the story is, but I don't want to spoil anything. The bad is the open world. It's set in San Francisco. But, it feels more like the farming town I live in! There isn't much to do outside of missions. The spoof of Uber is fun for a little while. The prompts to reach sight seeing points of interest were ok. But, the world looks a little bland so sight seeing isn't that exciting. The NPCs are infuriating. They often blocked doorways without moving despite "running" into them. Several times I tried getting away from the police by running into a hideout only to be thwarted by a group on non-responsive people clustered in the doorway. Even worse is police cars driving on the wrong side of the road. If you just ever so slightly graze a police car, the heat is on (Kenny Loggins). How can you avoid a police car when one is suddenly in your lane heading right towards you at high speed? Oh, and for some reason people assume you are going to hit them with your car even though you are driving slow and in your lane. So, they jump out of the way. The problem is they often times jump the wrong way and end up in front of my car. They are dead and the heat is on - again for something ridiculous and outside my control. The ugly is driving. The vehicles don't seem to be in contact with the ground. It feels and looks like driving on ice. This leads to very bizarre animations and wonky control. The worst is the vehicle engine sounds. OMG whoever thought these engine noises sound right must drive a beat up Chevy Nova with no muffler. It's terrible! And there is no way to lower sound effects volume! I cringe every time I get into a car. At least the motorcycles sound somewhat normal. Seriously, Ubisoft needs to risk reverse engineering open world mechanics from Rockstar. Despite the bland open world and terrible driving experience, I consider this a good game because of how strong the story is. It's definitely worth the ride even if the cars are not.

      It's hard to put into words how much more improved Watch Dogs 2 is next to the original game. Like most people, I hated the first game and I almost completely skipped Watch Dogs 2 because of it. I have to say, I am really glad I didn't. This game is the polar opposite to the first one. First of all, the main protagonist in the game is a lot more interesting and upbeat versus Aiden Pierce in the first game. There is LOTS of humor in this game, but still some serious moments where it is appropriately leveled out. Tons of really fun and interesting missions, with a huge array of side content, so there's never really a dull moment during the gameplay experience. Not only that, but the variety of the missions are great as well. The game never felt boring or repetitive the entire time I was playing it. The game being set in San Francisco adds much more excitement with all the cool scenery. The game includes tons of upbeat music and even some cool interactions between civilians on the street. The story was amazing, with the right pacing and tone. It didn't feel rushed at the end like some games do. I also love the fact that you have a remote control car and drone to use. You can use these items to mark enemies, go through vents to get to areas you wouldn't be able to access normally, and even use them to hack certain items. There are so many cool details in this game, it's hard to name them all here. Overall, Ubisoft did a really amazing job with this one, and I couldn't of had more fun playing it.

      I'm getting old - so i can't relate to skinny jean wearing , back flipping, weird music and so forth... so pardon me for not being able to really relate to the characters. characters that appeal to 15 years olds aside... this game is good... and i say that having really liked the first. the only problem is... a follow up should ALWAYS be better . there's a lot of parts of this game that either 1. stayed the same or 2. just got worse (the combat) the world is gorgeous ... probably the best looking I've seen in any video game... the combat isn't great... but it isn't even close to being bad (it could be better) the mission structure is pretty much always the same... i saw a lot of people complain about this in mafia III... while it is a long campaign... you do a lot of the same stuff over & over & over if you love puzzles & "hacking" you will love watch dogs 2... if you get frustrated easily... you will probably enjoy it for hour or two at a time... before you need a break from horrible attempts @ humor and repetitive missions overall the game still manages to be really good. you will be doing a lot of the same stuff , the characters are sometimes just cheesy... when you get by that... underneath lies a pretty good game (it makes sense to me) pardon grammar... i typed this like in 2 minutes. hope you enjoy the review.

      So much improved.

      I can't believe the amount that was improved on since the first Watch Dogs. Where to begin? The driving feels so much better along the lines of Saint's Row that allowed total control over the vehicle (stop on a dime, tight turning, etc). The hacking is completely overhauled in that now you have multiple options when selecting items to hack (overload, distract, set up a trap, etc). The characters are juvenile but so likeable. They're very much little anarchists that are fun to be around. I love the social media aspect and how that levels your character up the more followers you have. The game looks fantastic with lots of lush environments and detail in all the shops and interiors you go in. No bland environments this time around! Oh, and I hopped on some co-op missions with my buddy...more fun than I've had in a loooong time just goofing around with each other. Totally seamless drop in gameplay. An Ubisoft game that actually got the co-op right!!! I can't overstate how much this game deserves your attention.

      flawed but fun

      Watch dogs was a fun game and I like Aiden. This game improves on it but at the same time has taken some steps back. The addition of an RC and droid opens up the world to many possibilities. Get the droid as soon as you can. It helps on so many missions. There's lots of upgrades as well. Too many, but as you continue the story you'll fill it up. My personal favorite is the gang attacks. Get someone else to do your dirty work. So the negatives The cover system is bad. Sometimes you are in cover and want to get out or move, but you might get stuck. Driving and hacking behind is still an issue but you can control cars in front of you which is great. The story and characters are ok. Has some nice moments but it also has some cringy moments. It tries to be meta. Nothing really stands out besides Wrench. The rest of the characters are just ok. The story seems to be purpose less in a way. There's no definite goal unlike Aiden, which was revenge. The online is less annoying. It has improved and added some new modes. Overall the fun overshadows the flaws

      Best Balanced Game in 2016 Fall Release

      I am not saying this is the best game ever or the game of the year I just think for a fall release open world single or co-op experience this was the perfect game for that itch. The story is a lil far fetch maybe a lil gimmicky along with the characters but once I sunk my teeth into the mechanics & gameplay the hacker crew grew on me the ability to completely hack your way go stealth or guns blazing help or cause mayhem that freedom is what this game fun. I can't tell you how many times I made rival gangs, police,& security for places have shootouts for the laughs or strategic value. The side missions tie in perfectly allowing growth & slow the game down to see the city which has a really nice way to do it in Scoutx an app that allows you to pose near famous, historic, or memorable places throughout San Fran this allowed me to discover places here convos that led to other places. I can go on & on but it's a solid redemption with great customization options & growth of character oh & a lot of stuff is free as long as you earn in the game & not with real currency You're a hacker 5grand in 10 minutes a piece of cake Enjoy !!

      Assassin's Creed II of the Watch Dogs world

      This is was an absolutely fantastic game. If you liked the first one...even if you didn't like the first game, I highly recommend this one. It's another dramatic turn around for an Ubisoft series that didn't start off so hot (see: the first Assassin's Creed). The characters are more likable, the story is more intriguing, the game world of virtual San Francisco is stunningly gorgeous, the driving mechanics are vastly improved, and the hacking is a lot more fun, plus there is a TON of things to do usually covered by clever puzzle solving, which adds that little extra to it. If there was anything I had to take away from it, was that high powered weapons weren't needed. The game doesn't penalize you in any way for using them, which completely goes against the narrative. Maybe Watch Dogs 3 can look into a game where non-lethal means is the only objective (or have some kind karma system in place for using them). Either way, I recommend this to anyone. If you liked the first game, you'll LOVE this one. If you didn't like the first game, then this is the second chance you need to give the series.

      I am personally a huge fan of the GTA series games and Watch Dogs 2 is similar to GTA 5 with the added benefit of being able to hack people and objects which adds to the fun factor of the game. I love how almost everything you do requires you to think and strategize how you will attempt to complete the mission at hand. Whether it's finding a way on top of a building to get a money bag or research point, or using stealth and hacking to sneak your way through a restricted zone to complete your mission. Some negative aspects of the game are that it can sometimes get somewhat repetitive and the fact you can only carry 2 weapons plus your stun gun. Even though going around killing people doesn't really fall in line with your characters and the Dedsec story line and M.O., it would still be nice to be able to carry a couple more weapons that you have to purchase using in game money. But I suppose that just adds to the strategic and planning aspect of the game. Overall it is a great game that is fun and you could play for hours on end.
