Mariah Beckman, GIZORAMA - "I was soooo excited. Murdered: Soul Suspect appeared, at least to my nostalgic sensibilities, to be essentially a more brooding take on the life and times of Eddie Valiant…if the soured, booze hound detective in Toon Town was really played by a brunette Ryan Gosling. I was pre-ordering Watch Dogs when first I spied the Soul Suspect trailer. The concept behind Watch Dogs definitely looked cool to me, like a big-boy version of the slightly musty Assassin’s Creed franchise. (Don’t get me wrong, Watch Dogs looked like the souped up, savvy peer to other high-profile next-gen title released as of late. I can’t quite put my finger on what about it seemed…tedious to me. At any rate, it was played, and while I maintain it was as a little banal, Watch Dogs really landed on the unremarkable side of awesome for me.)"
