A lot of Watch Dogs customers have encountered a game-breaking bug.
This game really disappointed me. I had fun with it for the first few hours, but after that all it's flaws really become apparent. I do see it's potential though so hopefully Watch Dogs 2 will rectify everything this game got wrong.
It has potential and is fun for messing around with friends in. As for the bug, a little late to the party. It was reported back on release day... No fix yet, but they think they "isolated the problem"... http://forums.ubi.com/showt...
It's about f***ing time the posted an article on n4g about this problem. I've had this bug for weeks now and haven't played since. I'm not willing to start the campaign over since I progressed pretty far but it pisses me off that I paid $60 bucks on a game I was only able to play for 2 weeks. I've been waiting for a fix Ubisoft Fix it Damnit
@Redrum, notice the topic creator of the thread? :P Right after I had logged out, I got the hotspot achievement and couldn't log back in. I waited a little over a day and then just started a new game since I figured it'd be similar to the gta online bug that lost me a character. No problem since.
can't jump can't shoot in cover (no look) can't shoot while driving can't buy and match outfits (majority sucked ass I just kept the "WHITEOUT" on the majority of the time POLICE don't patrol, they show up once every 15 real life hours or so... How can you have a game that is within such a "governed" city that has no police on the streets?? but when they are called and the scan happens they are there within milliseconds?? can't enjoy the game after completion... granted I went for the platinum but the game was soooo dull after beating unlike the GTA giant can't customize weapons can't customize cars can't stop dreading dumb hack mini games... can't stand dull mulitplayer (fun the first 3-5 times per game mode) can't get into the story with cheesy voice acting.. really didn't care about any of the characters... and the story was soooo flat... so many things you can't do that should've been a given especially with the game dev life cycle of this game... enjoyed the game till Act 2 then I did side missions and everything else because the story was just sooo flat... smh, hopefully they do alot of work with it in WD2, like they did with AC2
I found GTA far more boring. Story was jumping all over the place at times, not much mission variety, empty world as usual etc.
It's an Ubisoft game, they always disappoint. They promise too much and never deliver. Plus, their games go on 20 hours longer than they should.
The drinking side mission alone was overly extended no way they tested that crap and thought... OMG they would love this... and there's so much that has been tacked on for watch dogs that was in GTAV. I wonder what kind of game was it a year ago, because the stuff like blacking out and being drunk def. wasn't in there you the screen gets blurry, but he's walking regular (no drunk animation). So much crap in this game that shouldn't and so much that isn't that should be. Def. won't be buying WD2 until I can find it used.. Ubisoft won't be getting anymore of my money from this series until they prove themselves.
Finally some exposure I have been on Twitter Facebook phone with them and nothing its been broken since the first Friday of release. I have over 30hrs and nothing is being said today they offered me 75uplay points..... For anyone who doesn't know it's pretty much nothing especially since I have all watchdogs Ubisoft uplay point content.... It's like offering someone with food poisoning another bite... 3rd week of the issue a game we paid 65$ for and cannot play I have tried contacting ign gamespot just to get some kind of noise out.... Nothing. This glitch is effecting thousands and we get generic responses and abysmal compensation. Check the 90% glitch Ubisoft forums it's horrible
all honesty i think they just tried too hard to put soo much different stuff in the game, i wish them all the luck and im waiting for the division :)
Glad i didn't waste my money on this.
Wow, what a surprise, a game with a breaking bug at launch. If only this game could be like almost every other AAA release and work properly, like Battlefield and Skyrim......
The only flaw that really bothered me was that you couldn't shoot while driving. By the time I got the "offensive driver" upgrade I had beaten the game and done all the convoys. No site should give it higher or lower than an 8.5
You can't shoot while driving (except your partner in co-op) cause he relies on his phone to hack things WHILE DRIVING. So he would need a 3rd arm to do 3 things at once.
