Console Monster writes: "When it was first unveiled during Ubisoft’s press conference at E3 2012, Watch Dogs created a buzz like no other. From that initial reveal, the hybrid of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, Grand Theft Auto and Assassin’s Creed excited gamers and looked set to revolutionise gaming.
Despite numerous delays, there was still a lot of hype surrounding the title, which finally launched on May 27th, 2014. But is Watch Dogs the title gamers have been yearning for, or is this one dog that has already had its day?
The plot in Watch Dogs focuses on Aiden Pearce, a grey hat hacker and vigilante who is seeking revenge on those responsible for the murder of his niece, following a failed robbery eleven months ago. Using a backdoor into Chicago's central operating system (ctOs), Aiden is able to hack into the electrical infrastructure in the city, allowing him to discover information about its citizens using his smartphone."
