Watch Dogs is a game that many people are going to pick up, be that because of the hype, somewhat newish game concept, or the amazing graphics.
The premise is fresh. The city of Chicago has deployed Central Operating System (ctOS, an operating system that runs all of the city’s utilities and gadgets, from cellular networks to transportation infrastructure to power grids.
It controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents.
You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt your family, you'll be able to monitor and hack all who surround you by manipulating everything connected to the city’s network. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy, and more.
By far the most complained about portion of this game. Physics are unreal, and driving is less enjoyable than expected. Nothing like our favorite open world game from Rockstar. There are a lot of cars in this game, (65 they say) but you might not want to be spending a ton of time in them. 7/10
Great and rather realistic, a new bar has been set for conversations and actions of NPCs. You can listen in on conversations and arguments that these characters have and it is rather believable. 9.5/10 (some physics make this not perfect)
Looks very good, when it gets dark the city looks awesome. Walking looks smooth, running is a little weird, but nothing to get worked up over. Animations are fluid and for the most part natural. 8/10
Overall this is a fantastic first entry and I'm excited to see where Ubisoft takes Watch dogs 2. Definitely purchase this is you are a fan of open world games.
