After an extended period of anticipation, this game has the weight of the world upon its shoulders. What score does it need to meet those expectations?
Can we not start this please. An arbitrary number based on subjectivity, resolution-gate-fanboyism, media hype, and game journalist elitism. Keep your review scores. I've got the game already pre-ordered. So have millions of gamers across the world. Arbitrary review scores won't change that. We'll just enjoy the game anyway!
Arbitrary numbers, all opinion...yeah, all critics are just useless, anyway. Really can't stand viewpoints like this. Want to talk about elitist? It's right here.
I agreed to a point - also like yourself I have the game pre-ordered, but "we'll just enjoy the game anyway"!? speak for yourself. I will enjoy the game if it is well made and interesting, I will NOT pretend to enjoy it if my worst fears are realised, that the review embargo being held until release date and the massive delay equal no smoke without fire.
My my this site is morbid today. Reviews mean BALLS ALL!
"After an extended period of anticipation…" My anticipation for this game didn't last long, but maybe I'm in the minority. That initial reveal blew me away but everything I've seen since then has been less interesting, and I'm not talking about visuals at all.
10/10 & best game of the year nomination or i'm not buying it.
Wait a see.This game will rock.Looks great.The visual downgrade will be something that we will see a lot of this gen.Witcher 3 and The Division to name some.Let's face it,if Ubisoft can get The Division running as good as E3 2013 on PS4 or X1 then we're in for a treat,but it's NEVER GONNA HAPPEN.
Watch Dogs will have a Metacritic of 84.
yes im playing it on pc now. Got it from my friend who works in a game store early. Im Mixing the settings up. I have levels of detail at ultra and shadows high, overall detail high and mbao +2. SMaa + on too. And im runing it on a GTX 670 and 8 gb ram and i5 3.10 GHz with no lag. So they are lying that u need a 780 card for ultra. I can run Everything on ultra without the SMAA and HBAO+ features.
