The long awaited ubisoft game watchdogs is out on the 27th. Ive been playing it today and its pretty decent, there's a lot to take in.

The GFX are better than anything ive seen before in a game of this type. It makes GTA look very dated.







The only complaint i have so far is the cars are a bit floaty and hard to control. Hopefully ill get the hang of it.

The first mission isnt to difficult. You just have to escape a building by hacking into video cams, causing distractions and then hacking the mainframe to case a complete blackout in what looks like a football stadium (i didnt hang around to see what game they were playing).

Remembering to search for hackable devices and stealing money and info from people phones is hard to do while your concentrating on escaping from a situation though.

I was actually a bit disapointed...
(graphics wise, some of those textures are horrid, far from the E3 2012 preview). But it is a fun game that's for sure.

Well GTA is dated so ..... and the next gen GTA is not yet out (only old gen). But when GTA V is released on pc (XO/ps4) it will look very good (I hope lol).

And on a funny side you must watch this (hope this doesn't violate any rules even though messed up lol...)

I can't afford it! I need to get paid before I can buy it but I've been waiting for this game for a year lol. It was supposed to be released earlier but they pushed it back and I was so pissed.

What are you playing it on?

This game looks amazing. I was really astonished by the very first trailer. This seems like the best game I've ever seen. The theme is stunning. The graphics? Unbelievable.
It sucks I can't play it on my Mac. --> wish I could

Im playing it on the pc.

I found somewhere you can buy it for just $46 (£27.50). Thats almost half price on what they are paying in Australia ($74)

www.g2a.com...

I bought Titan Fall from that site a few weeks back for the same price. Its pretty decent savings.

Yes the E3 2012 was on pc, but they have downgraded graphics alot since then... (I play on pc also). The graphics are good, but i'm not mind blown yet lol. And it's not yet optimized, we'll have to wait for patches (probably one tomorrow though)

So ive been playing it a little more today and i hate to say it but im bored already.

The storyline seems weak, the car chases take to long and not being able to retry certain side missions is frustrating.

The storyline is not edgy enough for an action game that's basically a GTA ripoff.

When doing car chases to are able to hack into things like traffic lights to cause car accidents but when you are driving at high speed by the time you have a chance to hack them the car you are chasing is past them. Its good for stopping the police folling you but not much else. So far i haven't been able to shoot from the car either (maybe im missing something) so im reduced to trying to ram the chase car which takes a long time.

Hopefully it gets better as i get into it but so far its not living up to the hype , i havent given up on it yet

Watchdogs looks very last-gen. Textures are laughable. GTA V wasn't a graphical feat, either, but it was good(even though I think it's the worst GTA in the series content-wise).

I remember the first time I saw Watch Dogs being run on a NASA computer. It looked incredible. My mind was blown. This Watchdogs here......it doesn't even come close to that. It's not worth $60.

Just my opinion here as a gamer

I just started the game on xbone and got to the first car chase and was having trouble working out what I should be doing. I kept hearing.. "Stop or I will shoot you" just reminds me of the many youtube video's that are in real life in the US with the police today. Scary!!
Shoot first and ask questions later. This just does not happen in my Country.
I had to ask myself if this game is subjectively following an agenda, GTA5 was different, it was fun and I understood that it was for entertainment...just fun but this one worries me and I am thinking about returning the game to be honest.

I have been waiting a long time for this game to come out so I still want to get through more of it to understand it better.
The graphics are amazing, the gameplay seems awesome but the fact that your gameplay data is being used by the provider also worries me to some degree. Not sure and feeling uncomfortable, will see how I go and update.

I wait for the reviews to come out 99% of the time before I buy a game. Im glad I waited for Elder Scrolls Online reviews, and am glad I waited for the Watchdogs review to come out to.

Watch Dogs review: Meet the new open world game, same as the old open world game

The graphics are amazing of course, but pretty graphics don't really hold my attention long.


Distill Watch Dogs down to its core concepts, however, and you've got Grand Theft Auto III. Again.


I gave up on GTA a couple years ago. I completely skipped over the latest GTA. It's the same thing over and over and over and over again.


The remarkable thing about the "Drive somewhere, kill someone, drive away," feedback loop is it holds remarkable sway over me. It's a more story-driven method of "filling up progress bars," and each new mission brings the same rush as unlocking that next gun in Call of Duty or whatever. But with a story this bland, there's nothing to show for it at the end.


Most games that have come out in the past few years just seem to be rehashes of previous games, with very minor changes and better graphics. Very few games actually change their cores into something new. The Last of Us is probably the last game I played where I was "wowed".


None of the side missions make particularly interesting use of the hacking mechanic, and after the fifteenth time you see the ground explode in the same exact manner—well, the problem with gimmicks is that gimmicks quickly grow old.



Watch Dogs is beautiful, but it doesn't do anything to change up the same core game we've seen since Grand Theft Auto III. This game is "next-gen" in the looks department only.


Im sure I would have fun if I played Watchdogs....but it wouldn't last long.

That's actually a good way to look at it; I will have fun playing a game, but for how long will that fun last and will it be worth the $60? I wait for reviews as well, but I take them with a big grain of salt. I've seen critics give games low scores when I actually thought they were good. It's just someones opinion. If you look at the user rating score, though, you will get a good idea as to what other gamers feel about it and it's the most accurate thing to go by, IMO.

I preordered this game. Got it when it came out.

And I have to say, its not as great as I thought it would be. I got it on the PS4, and though the graphics are pretty good there not that impressive, there are some parts were its really impressive. But for the most part, and I think this is just me as I am got over the sandbox game types, but its kind of the same ol things. The whole hacking aspect of it while cool is not exactly what I thought it would be, it just seem to be thrown in there and not that dynamic. Its a cool concept, but its pretty much hold a button down and something will happen generally an explosion or other such things. The black out thing is cool, but its pretty much from as far as I played it just GTA with a bit more updated graphics and a different tone to it. I kind of got bored of it after the first few missions. But again I think its just me, kind of burned out on sandbox games. I mean I want to give the game a chance, but I just cant make myself play any more of it, I heard it gets a bit better in the latter missions and such, but dam, I really cant stand doing pointless missions anymore.

I do enjoy this game but I'm quite disappointing with it as well. Although the map is huge, it's never made me want to explore it. The police are way too destructive and violent and everything's the same. Although it's a fun game, It's very quickly turned into a game that you have to feel like playing in order to play it again. On the day I loved it and was amazed by everything, but after playing it more and more, I started to realize that it's not as great as it sounded. The multiplayer is also quite lame to put it lightly. I know it's not a fair comparison, but I much prefer GTA 5 to Watch Dogs, there's just more to do in it and is less repetitive. I just can't wait for AC Unity, I'm a huge fan of Assassin's Creed so that I'm definitely gonna get!

I agree,

Got a copy on PS4 and yes its fun but in my opinion comes no where close to GTA5.

Even the graphics to me arent that impressive, I have read many that say the graphic crap all over GTA 5, both on games sites in articles and in blogs by random posters.

I completely disagree, GTA 5 looks much more impressive.

I haven't gone over the whole map in Watchdogs but the driving in the game really mad it hard to enjoy.

Compare the driving mechanics (the way the cars handle) in watchdogs with GTA 5 and GTA 5s driving mechanics are like a driving simulator compared to watchdogs having a driving mechanics like that of atari 2600 game.
