Watch Dogs Review: Was the hype worth it? (The Gamer's Lounge)

Watch Dogs is a good game and it has some interesting features. The game has gotten a lot of great press and a lot of praise from reviewers and the game industry. Does this mean everyone should run out and buy the game? Does Watch Dogs change open world games forever? Is the hype behind the game too much or does it live up to the lofty expectations? (PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Xbox 360) 9/10

No it wasn't, most repetitive game I've played so far this generation.

Yeah right. You have to be joking. I've played lots of games that were more repetitive. For example, Infamous Second Son, which is a game I still like a lot, was much more repetitive than Watch Dogs. There was a lot more variety and different gameplay mechanics in Watch Dogs.

I liked Watch Dogs. This was a nice review.

Dude compared to what UBI made it out to be it still didn't live up to the hype. At least SS had awesome and likable characters.... Where WD's protagonist just felt too emo for me with barely any characteristics what so ever.

To each his own, I guess.

Aiden Pearce is emo? And Delsin Rowe isn't?'re a funny guy. I think you got that backwards.

Whether you liked the characters better in Infamous Second Son or not it's irrelevant to what we were talking about.

You acted like Watch Dogs is a horrible game and claimed it is the most repetitive games you have played. Unless you have played very few games I don't understand how that could be. Infamous Second Son, while a good game, is definitely much more limited and repetitive in its missions and activities than Watch Dogs. And I could name plenty of other examples as well.

I gave it an 8 because i didn't buy into the hype. I gave infamous a similar score. Both games had new ideas. I'm not an ubisoft fan though. There are much better developers out there. Please fix the wd driving physics for the next wd.

If u forget the hype and enjoy it as a new game,it's still an amazing game for a new IP.And hacking mechanics in an open world with the city in your fingertips is amazing.The city of Chicago was also one of the best,realistic cities ever.The AI was good,story not that great,characters....ummm T Bone and Jordi were really cool.

I also thought the characters were good. The only problem moving forward is that ubisoft don't appear to be developers who would put in the necessary time and effort to fulfill watch dogs potential. They want quick results and maximum profit, at the expense of quality. When is the 'new jersey' dlc coming out ?

No, like Infamous 2nd Son the main characters were too generic and annoying. After a couple of hours of waypoint A to wavepoint B, hack this, and hack that, I was pretty much done with WD. I would rate WD on the PC a 6 out of 10 because of stuttering issues on high end rigs. Otherwise maybe a 7 out of 10 on consoles.

The hype level really damaged the game experience for me. That and the stone-dead, emotionless Aiden Pierce and the boring gameplay and the downgraded graphics and Uplay and the forgettable story and lack of detail and the building reflections and ...
