      Better in Most Areas

      To begin, I am someone who thoroughly enjoyed my time with the original Watch Dogs, which was knocked by a lot of critics. Where it's better: There is no doubt that the stealth option has become much more appealing in Watch Dogs 2. The addition of drones is what truly changes the hacker style of play. They were, without a doubt, my favorite part of the game. Other improvements include appearance customization (character, drones and weapons), nearly doubling the world size and the atmosphere of the world. As someone who has never been to the Bay Area, it was a joy to visit landmarks or see local street performers and receive in-game rewards for those actions. Where it's worse: While some critics praised the story for not being the dark and gritty journey that the original Watch Dogs was, this more lighthearted "eff you" to the system focus did not pull me in emotionally. Another aspect of the game that frustrated me at times ties in with a clear emphasis of the development team. In making a push to be a stealth/hack first game, even the best weapons are useless in a majority of the game's scenarios. Overall, I would say Watch Dogs 2 is better than its predecessor. In completing all of the side missions, I wound up playing for more than 35 hours and enjoying most of that time.

      Total change compared to the first

      The most similar thing between 1 and 2 is they're both hackers, but that's about it. Where the first one was sorta dark with a lone man on a mission, the second one is bright and colorful in San Fran. Much time has passed since it's launch, and it's a good thing with the DLC and free stuff they added. Taking a non-lethal approach even on normal difficulty still proves pretty challenging, going in guns blazing is much easier, but sorta defeats the purpose of what DedSec set out to do. It would've gotten 5 stars from me, but the huge flaw with this game is audio balancing and extreme lack of customization in the settings. There's a master volume slider, aaand that's it. You can toggle other things on and off, but that's dumb, especially for a game in this day and age (2016 even). Leaving my tv on it's normal volume setting, gunfire is way too loud, voices are way too quiet, music is way too loud, and many little audio cues are way too quiet, easy to miss. Probably closer to 3.5 instead of 4, because that audio is a big problem.

      Disappointing Overall

      I was a huge fan of the original WatchDogs and felt the series had so much potential that could not be realized due to the set backs of having to get the game to run on 360 and PS3. WatchDogs 2 did greatly improve on the hacking features compared to the original. The graphics also received a great upgrade from the previous installment. Other than that everything was a stepdown in my opinion. The story was complete and utter garbage. Throughout the miserably repetitive campaign your goal is to gain social media followers in order to bring down the evil corporation know as Blume. The characters are even worse than the cringe worthy plot, they are representative of hipster extremes and overall I did not get attached to any throughout the game. Gameplay is nothing to write home about and is some of the sloppiest 3rd person shooting I have found in a game as of recent. In conclusion I would stay away from this game unless you want to pick it up for $20 or less and get an easy 600+ gamer score by playing through the campaign.

      I never played the first Watch Dog game but I saw images of San Francisco on the box and had to take a chance. I am glad that I did because the game is quite enjoyable. I love the open game play where missions occur throughout the bay area. You get to deal with the hills of SF along with the flat roads of Oakland. You choose your style of play so there's whatever you want to do, and the humor written into by the game designers was great. I really enjoyed the mission where I got basically was the KIT car from KnightRider. Whether you like to go Guns blazing or stealth the game is playable for each style. Some missions are okay but most were awesome. Plus the game has an awesome soundtrack that you can use to build a Playlist to highlight your missions music. Pick your Jam for a sneak mission then a completely different one when your going guns and explosive against security forces or gangstas. I highly recommend this game to anyone.

      Bought this on sale after reading mostly positive reviews and playing a bit of the demo on xbox. I was a bit hesitant, and didn't want a poor mans GTA knock-off, but honestly I have not regretted this purchase at all. Fun, bright open-world stealth/action game. It is similar in some ways to GTA, but seems to me to be a bit for focused. Ubisoft really knocked it out of the park with this one. Beautiful open-world San Francisco. Characters are interesting, if not a bit cliche (which they were obviously going for in a good, entertaining way). The developers have released some patches that have fixed a lot of the early issues. If you are looking for a fun, relatively easy to play third-person open world game that incorporates some interesting story-lines, get this title. There is a lot to do in this game, and the multi-player is hilarious and very entertaining at times. This game does not take itself too seriously, but is seriously a pretty decent game. Get it!

      Drone Dogs

      It you liked WD1 you will like this game as well. They mad a lot of improvements to the single player game but completely failed on the seamless multiplayer. A lot of the same abilities from the last game with a bunch of new one. You are able to control an RC car and fly a drone to assist you in missions, profile from the air and solve puzzles. Hacking puzzles are now open world instead of on terminal server. The game relies to much on the drone to complete missions. If you try to go in anywhere guns blazing you will die. Multiplayer is / was broken they are patching the game (2 patches have released so far). Hard to connect to multiplayer games...must restart system / load another game to dump the memory to connect online (could be fixed by now). High memory usage, lags out the system. Cortana is unresponsive (only when this game is running). Connecting to a party chat will kick people and force a new party to be started. T-Bone should have been the main character :)

      Long game with good gameplay elements

      Watchdogs 2 picks up after the advent of the first Watchdog game and drops you into San Francisco. They do a really good job with the game mechanics. Tightening the controls to be more fluid than the first game. The multiplayer elements to this game are nearly seamless and provide a change of pace to the complete missions grinding. My only complaint is the excessive amount of language used in this game. I have to be cautious when playing this around others who might be offended (or influenced) by the continual use of the "F-bomb". If this doesn't bother you and you enjoyed the first game, or you want an alternative to Grand Theft Auto, then its a good game. I have no other complaints, and its the only reason I did not award 5 stars.

      The game is a lot of fun to play. There are periodic forced PvP "invasions" that you don't necessarily need to engage in. Just like any online PvP game, there are people that are really determined to take the fun out of the game for other players and just troll/grief you until the timer runs out. The single/co-op play is a lot of fun and there are a decent number of mission types to spice things up, and there is a chance that the forced PvP events will involve you being against your co-op partner. I'm a completionist, so I haven't progressed very far in the main game, I spend a lot of time doing all of the side missions and collecting things which still has my attention.
