Watch Dogs Review [2014]

The following content has been rated for PS3 and not PC.

Watch Dogs is a good, fun game to play, which technically is an amalgam of some other fine games with an ubiquitous AC style Missions and presentation, especially the Assassin’s Creed’s touch.
The game has till date, the best cop chase mechanics and what you can do to deter the cops from chasing you down.Amazing bridge pull-ups, steam pipes is amazing with beautiful smoke popping out.

Graphics isn’t much but the way smoke pops out is amazing. Check PC for graphics.

Unfortunately, that’s one of the very few things you’ll have something to recall and love alongside the living, breathing Chicago.With Dump truck vehicle mechanics and sloppy cover system, the game at times crosses the boundaries being more pain than pleasure.Story is slow and utterly clichéd but you don’t pretty much require one.
It’s a grey hat hacker taking his revenge on the people and ultimately, the system.

Graphics for PS3 is near-Saints Row, below average for its time and well I didn’t care much, the graphics weren’t taken much into consideration as console gaming was the purview.
What pissed me off were intermittent graphic glitches at times but, well, in comparision to the utterly loathesome story progression, it’s bearable.
Gameplay is not extremely fine in quality but it’s super fun and all the credit goes to Jesus’ cellphone!
From Bridges to personal conversation, hack anywhere, everywhere. It’s so fun to mess around for hours that the story mode and campaign missions become a unavoidable pain-in-the-ass, like the asshole with popcorn next to you on a friday night release of a movie.

Mobile's the only center of attraction with a massive magnetic pull though.

All in all, Watch Dogs is an innocent lamb caught in the ire of stupid fanboys giving it the hype it never wanted proving yet again that some people have the smart IQ of a single digit. It’s a lot of things, the game, a surveillance satire, a patience test at times and occassional frenzy at times, but not the whole package.
It’s nowhere near GTA V, and how can I compare? Because as a gamer who likes going in with guns blazing and plotting stealth approach equally, I liked GTA V way more than Watch Dogs.
Having said all that, it sure is a different experience.
