Watch Dogs Review "Does it live up to the hype? Kinda" | Pure|News

Pure|News had finally the chance to play Watch Dogs. But does the game live up to the hype especially after the famous E3 demo?

Kinda. (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 8/10

Agreed with your agreement

I agree but I do think it's a pretty good game.

I do really like the way they've implemented the multiplayer with the ability to queue for things like you can in World of Warcraft. I find this far better than in GTA5.

The game doesn't have much to offer in the single player department that we haven't already seen many times. They've at least been able to improve on the technical side of open world multiplayer by adding functionality that other open world games had not done before. Though this is more to do with matchmaking.

All in all, I think Ubisoft have a great new IP that can be polished to be amazing. Just like they did with Assassin's Creed 2.

Not yet! When Ubisoft send out a patch to fix AMD graphics card issues I will start playing WD again. Until then I can't say for certain if this game is lives for to the hype.

Bought it, played it to the point where you visit your nephew for his Birthday, haven't touched it since.

Maybe I'll go back to it later. but for right now I fear it was a $50 Steam purchase mistake.

It's not a bad game, was there room for improvement? Sure there was, especially on the resolution department.. The Xbox One version is very jagged..

it sucks.. played it. Completed it and dont want to touch it anymore. GTA5 still i enjoy playing it. The city feels awesome and WD feels so sad. Its a living city but not a funny city. Los angeles location should have been a better Place to settle WD in.

I have to agree with you on this, after you're done with the side missions and the main story there's nothing to keep it alive.

Especially since the side missions are done quite fast... =/
Meltic  +   383d ago
I dont want to be to harsh to Ubisoft its a great and funny game but like you said. After the Side missions its nothing to keep it alive. And talk about the Demarco mission?. The e3 mission of Demarco was so badass compare to Demarco mission now when the game is done. Cant wait to play Gta5 on my PC when it arrives again.
MrGunny94  +   383d ago
Indeed, I think people expect too much especially when those games are shown running at high enhanced visuals due to be a E3 presentation.

I personally think the Hype was done by the fans that was caused by the HUGE marketing done on the game.

Ubisoft shown what was the game, I think people made a different idea of what to expect from the package though.

It's just a game you pay and you're done.. Contrary to GTA V for example, which I still keep playing after I'm done with everything..

I think the game needed more random events like the Crime random events.. It just feels lifeless.

Slightly off topic... These non-committal 'kinda', 'maybe', '?' articles that seem endemic in gaming press at the moment are starting to annoy.

Jeez, have a strong opinion, risk the ire of your audience, nail your colours to the mast! These constant on the fence 'meh' articles deserve no respect. It's like the apathy of the generation in written form.
MrGunny94  +   383d ago
I'm sorry, probably you were right. But the reason I said kinda, it's because I wasn't saying that it not lived the hype or if it did.

There's diferent types of Hype. For me the hype I had expected from this game it's what it got deliver, I didn't expect a inifinite and amazing graphical game

I expected a normal sandbox game with hacking features, which was it was delivered.

I'm sorry again if you felt bad about the title or the review itself, should have explained that one line better.

Again mate I hope you didn't got annoyed by this.

It's fun while doing missions, but the open world mode gets boring fast. Even the city in Lego Marvel is more fun that this!

Chicago needs more interactivity in this game.
Belasco  +   383d ago
Well it doesn't suck, that's the best I can say about it. It's just kinda flat and lifeless.
MrGunny94  +   383d ago
I understand your opinion it! It just feels another sandbox game you play in a weekend and put it on the shelve.

It's fun and entertaining as I've stated but that's about it.

Finished the story and played some of all the side missions... Felt GTA 5 did almost everything better..

The multiplayer is a cool concept but flawed.. Racing is horrible, hacking is virtually impossible (hacked 20 people and failed them all, been hacked at least 50 times and killed them all) but tailing is kinda cool if boring.

It was OK.. But compared to the hype? Its horrible lol
