Watch Dogs 2 should be one good looking game

Summons753032d ago

Well let's hope they focus on fixing the gameplay before they focus on visuals or else they are going to have another flop on their hands.

Ricegum3032d ago

Lol, Watch Dogs flopped? I remember there being a bit of fuss about a visual downgrade but I'm pretty sure it didn't flop.

This is great news for me as I thoroughly enjoyed Watch Dogs.

freshslicepizza3032d ago

watchdogs has a great premise, i expect #2 to be much better than the first.

TwoForce3032d ago

Unreal01 Well, I'm enjoyed Watch Dog for sure. But they need to fix the story, gameplay and other stuffs. Because some of them can be force.

georeo3032d ago

Watchdogs didn't flop! Sales rise.I enjoyed the game.

OB1Biker3032d ago

I found the gameplay was alright even though they should improve it. I think Ubi d better focus on meaningful content (no silly mini games), meaningful story in an immersive setting and that includes yea better graphics. I found the characters very last gen tbh I mainly mean also good animation with believable characters

I didn't think the gameplay was all that bad. Shooting, cover and free running I thought were all very solid but driving was poor and hacking was poorly implemented. The story and boring repetitive side quests were what really let it down. Some side quests like the gang hideouts were really enjoyable but there wasn't enough of them and 90% of the rest of the side quests were filler. Overall I'd probably give it a 7.5, but here's hoping they can pull an AC2 and make the sequel a 9 or 10.

Watchdogs Flopped...LoL -(exactly how is shipping 9 million copies a flop) - http://www.gamespot.com/art...

cbuc11253032d ago

@Summons75....The game sold 9 million copies.

What is wrong with Watch Dogs game play?

I thought it was decent.

"Well let's hope they focus on fixing the gameplay before they focus on visuals"

I hope gameplay is always a priority, but with that attitude I feel like you almost want it to flop. If you remember, Watch Dogs caught considerable flak for not focusing enough on the graphics, hence the 'downgrade' debacle

"Highly Optimized for AMD"

One thing I don't miss about being a PC gamer. Having a monster rig and then realizing the publisher struck some backroom deal with a competing hardware manufacturer so that the game won't run as well on my system.

starchild3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

Although not perfectly executed I think Watch Dogs was still a good game. If they build from there it could be a truly amazing game.

@ Fr0sty

Except that usually doesn't amount to much difference in actuality. Most of the time the difference is pretty minor.

who cares about DX12 or DX14 if the game is boring and not interesting?

Maybe this one will be what the 1st one should have been.

Psychotica3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

Well if it's as "boring" as the last few games I will be very happy..

EDIT: Whoops was supposed to be with the next comment. Really need a delete comment option..

Mr_cheese3032d ago

That's what happened with assassins creed, the second one always felt like it should have been the first game, it was a much better, varied game.

The visuals out he first where still astonishing, they just didn't expand the gameplay

RedDeadLB3032d ago

And boring and will probably run horribly.

The usual Ubisoft formula.

zidane13413031d ago

The division is fun and runs near perfect.

starchild3031d ago

You must have a crappy PC. Most Ubisoft games run just fine for me, and many of them are among the best looking games I've played on PC.

RedDeadLB3031d ago

Um, no, I don't have a crappy PC (i5 3570k @ 4.2GHz, GTX 970), Ubisoft does crappy PC ports. Their CPU utilization is horrible and the cause for many performance issues across games like Far Cry and Assassin's Creed, even including Watch Dogs.

Niceman913032d ago

Not upon release it won't...

Muzikguy3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

I won't be duped a second time. Ubisoft have shown me how bad they are the entire gen so far. Poor decisions, always online games to hinder graphics, bad plots and characters, amazing reveals to coincide with downgrades....

I just rented RB6 Siege because I had a free rental and wanted so see of it was any good. I'll just say that I'm glad I didn't pay for that. I had more fun with Vegas.

No matter how good this game is Ubisoft won't be getting a purchase from me

ThunderPulse3032d ago

Seige was a great multiplayer game imo.

WilliamSheridan3032d ago

They did good with The Division...

brokenbracket3031d ago

@WilliamSheridan.... they did ok with The Division, but it's currently unplayable by tens of thousands of people because the game automatically crashes when you launch it. I was one of the lucky few who haven't really ran into any game breaking issues. However, the way they're handling hackers right now is unreal. To have paid $100 and the PvP area (Dark Zone) is basically unplayable in the state it's currently in.

zidane13413031d ago

@brokrn bracket: Wtf are you talking about? None of that Is true.
