Ubisoft lets you hack the future

4.5
Verdict: Not content with letting people explore the past with the Assassin's Creed series, Ubisoft has created another open-world adventure set in the future with Watch Dogs. New there are motorised vehicles and gadgets to interact with, and the parkour gameplay from Assassin's Creed has been replaced with...
Pros: Large open world to explore, Responsive battle system
Cons: Short single player campaign, Minor slowdown in some parts

Watch_Dogs (PS4) Review – The Hype Meets the Expectations, This Game is Amazing

4.8
Verdict: Watch Dogs has a tremendous amount of hype to live up to. Its unveiling last year (and subsequent delay) caused ripples throughout the gaming community at large. Well it's finally here and, boy does it ever live up to the hype.

Watch Dogs

3.5
Verdict: There's a stark contrast between the Watch Dogs that was pitched to gamers two years ago and the one that's on store shelves now. The former promised an ominous cyber-terrorist mystery, where God's-honest detective work, hoarding secrets, and privacy invasion were the core of everything you did, and...

Watch Dogs Review

4.0
Verdict: Watch Dogs is the first game of this new generation to break under the weight of its own hype. It has had a massive PR campaign from Ubisoft, and was subject to a six-month delay at the zero hour, which is usually not a good sign.
Pros: + Hacking is as advertised + Multiplayer + Socially conscious
Cons: - Seems more like an almost-ready beta - Server issues

Watch Dogs (PlayStation 4) Review

2.5
Verdict: It seems such a long time ago now, that Watch Dogs was first unveiled at E3 2012, with a very encouraging trailer that looked like it could really take open world games to another level.

Watch Dogs Review

4.5
Verdict: While the writing and dialogue likely won't win any awards, they're strong enough to drive the tension between characters while moving the action forward. Aiden moves from one plot point to the next trying to tie up loose ends and murdering security forces, goons, and gangsters because it's his only...
Pros: Story carries tension well, Incredible recreation of Chicago, Profiler and hacking powers, Good blend of stealth, shooting, and strategy, Almost overabundance of side objectives, Cool digital trips and online modes
Cons: Incredible recreation of Chicago, Lack of gun and clothing customization, Almost overabundance of side objectives

Watch_Dogs Review

4.5
Verdict: After a generation that brought us seven years of countless linear and identikit shooters, Watch Dogs is the open world adrenaline shot that fatigued gamers needed. While the story could have been better and Ubisoft have made a few questionable design choices, it's rare to see a big budget game that...

Review: Watch Dogs delivers on its 'next-gen' promise

4.5
Verdict: Forget speculation about textures and framerates - Watch Dogs is a bona fide next-gen proposition with a wonderfully told tale at its heart.
Pros: Solid stealth, responsive gunplay and thrilling hacking powers, Smart, punchy storytelling, Multiplayer is a most definably 'next-gen' feature
Cons: Enemy AI is occasionally clueless, A few annoying missions that insta-fail you on detection

Watch Dogs review – Quis custodiet ipsos custodogs

4.0
Verdict: Watch Dogs won't please everyone. Its shallow narrative and bland protagonist detract, but those looking for a finely-crafted open world game that eschews parody and satire for an overall darker tone will have a great time in Watch Dogs' digital Chicago.

Sorry this wasn't up sooner, but we were hacked

3.5
Verdict: Over two years ago, the premise of Watch Dogs sounded like a fresh take on the open world genre. A blend of a single player sandbox game with concurrent online multiplayer infrastructure, set in a fictitious, hackable version of Chicago, seemed like the shot in the arm that we needed.
Pros:

Watch Dogs

3.0
Verdict: Ever since its eye-opening debut at E3 a mere two years ago, Watch Dogs has been heralded as the true arrival of next-generation gaming. Ubisoft itself has done little to discourage this notion, barrelling full steam ahead on an unrelenting hype train.

Ubisoft sics Watch Dogs on grand theft privacy

4.0
Verdict: The parts of Watch Dogs that are terrible are the parts that make a good game great. Characters, theme, meaningful gameplay connected with meaningful storylines, clever self-aware writers working closely with game designers, internal consistency, vision.

Watch_Dogs PS4 Review

4.0
Verdict: There are so many open world games these days that use the Grand Theft Auto mould, and that's why it's nice to see some that do something slightly different. Ubisoft's Watch_Dogs was much anticipated after its unveiling at E3 two years ago, as it promised to take the Grand Theft Auto mould and then...

Watch Dogs review

3.5
Verdict: "Hacking is your weapon" declares the advertising for Ubisoft's latest franchise-starter, but after more than 30 hours of gameplay it's fair to say that my body count from assault rifles, grenade launchers and stealth kills is far more impressive than anything I can credit to my hacking skills.

Watch Dogs

4.5
Verdict: Watch Dogs is far and away the best game to released for the new consoles. It's overflowing with incredible content to be enjoyed and the beautiful city of Chicago to explore. This game could be the start of a truly incredible franchise.

Watch Dogs ( PlayStation 4)

4.0
Verdict: It's really not fair for a game to get the kind of hype that Watch Dogs has received over the last two years. Its publisher, Ubisoft, would never admit it, but the initial reception the game got back at E3 2012 was ridiculous.

Watch_Dogs Review – PC/Steam

4.0
Verdict: Watch Dogs is the long-awaited and much-anticipated cyber-thriller from Ubisoft Montreal (and four other Ubisoft studios); mostly the same people who brought you Assassin's Creed, and in many ways, once you get past the modern Chicago skyline and high-tech concept of a world that is "totally...

Watch Dogs review

3.8
Verdict: Watch Dogs borrows a lot of tried and tested concepts, adds a healthy dose of unique uberhacking, and rounds out as an enjoyable game that's laid the foundations for a sequel to blow us away.
Pros: + Action-heavy gameplay, + Hacking mechanics, + Multiplayer, + Chicago
Cons: - Driving mechanics, - Police/hired goon chases, - Most characters are boring, - Ideas noticeably held back by cross-gen

Watch Dogs review: now you see me

4.5
Verdict: I'm still busy with Watch Dogs and it saddens me that I had to rush through many sections of the game to take in as much as possible. There's so much to do and just walking around the city, hacking into phones and reading text messages can whittle aways hours of gameplay.

Watch Dogs (PS4)

4.2
Verdict: Watch Dogs stunned the world back in 2012 by proposing a massive open world of Chicago in which a complex IT system, the ctOS, ruled the streets and could be used for your own purposes by simply hacking into it using a smartphone .
Pros: Big open world, Hacking is fun, Complex story
Cons: Stealth is kind of mandatory, Lots of tedious chases, Camera hopping gets boring

Watch Dogs PS4 review – GTA: Hacker City

1.0
Verdict: Already embroiled in controversy over its graphics, does Ubisoft's open world game make the most of the next gen consoles?
Pros: Key gameplay mechanics are solid, including the shooting, driving and stealth. Smartphone abilities work well and enable some fairly open-ended missions. A near endless array of side content
Cons: The story and characters are not very interesting. The game as a whole lacks personality and mission design often lacks inspiration. Graphics are not as good as originally implied

Watch Dogs Review

4.2
Verdict: One-button hacking might be overly simplistic, but it does give you abilities that make playing through Aiden's story feel powerful and fun. Doing side missions and multiplayer as you make your way through the dark and lengthy story makes it feel like a huge adventure, and stealth options let you...
Pros: Great open world, Hacking powers, Mission variety
Cons: Weak car chases, Auto-fail stealth missions

Watch Dogs Review

No reviews
Verdict: If Watch Dogs is to be believed, then a shocking number of Chicago residents are delinquents. As you roam the city looking to both right what is wrong and make wrong what is right, you hack into its citizens' smartphones and listen in on their conversations, and even tap into their computers and...
Pros: Hacking gives car chases and combat encounters an additional element of freedom, Fantastic online modes provide rip-roaring fun, Digital trips are highly entertaining, the spider-bot in particular, Loaded with varied things to do, each of which is beautifully executed, Some clever mission design...
Cons: Inconsistent tone, inconsistent lead character, Successful online invasions are boring, Neither money nor reputation are all that valuable

Watch Dogs – Review (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

4.0
Verdict: Watch Dogs is a game mired in controversy. The initial reveal at E3 2012 had us all staring like crazy people who'd just been smacked in the face with a cartoon frying pan. Then very little was mentioned of it for a whole 12 months.

Amazing Game

4.0
Verdict: I bought this game not expecting too much except a futuristic GTA. I don't even really like GTA but I took a risk with Watch Dogs and I was happy. Something about this game really clicked with me and was really fun. It has a very good story and lots to do besides the story.

Not great, but a good ride!

3.0
Verdict: Watchdogs is pretty good fun. Lots of driving though. Fortunately there are plenty of unique missions to keep the racing around from being too bland. And then there is the hacking! Now that's the good stuff! As for shipping I couldn't ask for anything speedier.

Not as much as expected

3.0
Verdict: watch dogs is a good game but not for free roaming because we cannot kill public and cars are not good trees graphics are quite low on ps3 as compared with ps4. I think gta 5 is a better choise gta 5 missions are much better than watch dogs gta 5 story line is much bigger than watch dogs.

WD"s review

4.4
Verdict: I was able to play Watch dogs on the Xbox One. The best way to describe this game is a cross between Grand theft auto and Assassin's Creed. Sure your not scaling skyscrapers or flying a helicopter away from a huge bank heist, but it still has it's moments.
