I got this strange feeling gamespot is giving it around 7.5 maybe an 8..,,I can definetly be wrong, I just have a strange feeling. Regardless I'm buying don't care if it gets a 5

#2 Posted by lostrib (37608 posts) -

they don't do .5 ratings anymore

but yes, I think it is a distinct possibility it will get a 7

No early reviews is not a good sign.

#4 Posted by k2theswiss (16599 posts) -

Its new ip that looks cool and doing something new other open world game has

Plus

Its ubi...

It will get 8's easy

I have absolutely no idea.

#6 Edited by ReadingRainbow4 (14433 posts) -

7 to 8 range is my guess for the majority.

It looks average.

#7 Edited by brimmul777 (1242 posts) -

My opinion is Watch Dogs is overly hyped and I think it will be overated when released.

#8 Posted by Terrencec06 (3552 posts) -

I'd go with a 8. Driving looked terrible and I've heard the story sucks.

I'm thinking a 7. Something tells me they are grading on a GTA5 comparison scale

I have the same feeling. I think its a good game and I have it pre-ordered but I'm still skeptical I'm thinking of not picking it up on release day and seeing what people say about it. Most likely if it gets a really bad review then I may just switch my pre-order to something else

Depends who reviewing it. If it's an excitable 14 year old boy like Shaun McInnis Kevin VanOrd or Carolyn Petit then chances are it will be more objective and a much better review designed for people who have developed some form of chest hair.

#12 Edited by madskills6117 (4023 posts) -

I'd go with an 8 here and an 8.5 on IGN.

#13 Posted by Bigboi500 (29999 posts) -

They'll give it an 8.0 almost guaranteed. It's too much of a hyped title to score it low, and not enough of a big boy to give it a 9.0 like GTA.

#14 Edited by scottpsfan14 (5577 posts) -

I'm not hyped for it actually. Seen the PC screens and E3 2012 >>>>> PC.

#15 Posted by gameofthering (10311 posts) -

I said it will get a 7/10 in the hype thread.

That made me chuckle.

#17 Edited by R4gn4r0k (16623 posts) -

I think it will score an 8

Gamespot has been scoring a lot of games 8 recently

Ubi said no reviews until launch day.

It was the same with Wolfenstein and that game turned out amazing... Dunno, sometimes it's a bad sign, sometimes it's not.

#18 Posted by jsmoke03 (12923 posts) -

7 is a good possibility. im just hoping its fun...i bought a ps4 day one just because of this game

I doubt it will get a 6. The game sounds insanely stupid.

Yeah, because Carolyn is known be to be totally objective in her reviews, right?

#22 Posted by blackace (20886 posts) -

@youngmurk911: No idea. I'll probably preorder and then wait for the reviews. It should get at least a 8 score I would think, after all the hype.

My friend, while people such as myself, incredibly mature mentally, who respect, rather than attack her for her choice of lifestyle and views are a minority, it doesn't make the majority right. This is little people thinking, not big boy logic.

It really doesn't mean anything, and it's a standard Ubisoft practice with all their games.

Uh, don't you go around attacking people for their choices/insulting

That was a funny post, and well said.

#27 Posted by Alucard_Prime (3035 posts) -

Knowing Gamespot, a 7 is not out of the question, especially if the "wrong" reviewer gets to do it. I'm thinking it could get a 9, because lately UBI have surprised me a bit, but UBI is huge now and they probably threw tons of $$$ at this game. But then again if it is too generic, and considering how GTA5 was pretty cool with its 3 main characters, it could easily get an 8 too.

#28 Edited by Speak_Low (1097 posts) -

There was a leaked international review and it didn't sound good. 7/10 and the complaints said the missions were way too repetitive (one of my own complaints about the AC games, despite the interesting idea and climbing mechanics) and they said the city in Watch Dogs still felt like one big boring world.

This isn't to say this will be what everyone thinks, but that review seemed to bring back things I've felt wrong with the AC games personally. So I think Watch Dogs will be getting 7-8s, with reviewers praising mostly the effort and concept, but the actual core gameplay still needing lots of improvement.

Maybe Watch Dogs 2 will be the AC2 of the series and blow everyone away

Conan Obrien reviewed it already

#30 Posted by santoron (7774 posts) -

Hard to even guess until I know who is reviewing it. If it isn't McShea or KVO I doubt I'll even read it.

GS's review staff is pretty much dead.

#31 Posted by IgGy621985 (4817 posts) -

Nah, it'll be among 8 and 10 region. It's a heavily hyped title. Gaming press will hype it further with high scores.

I think it will score over 8.

#35 Edited by Heirren (17324 posts) -

If it scores low what the heck was all that extra development time for? I wonder what the game was like back at ps4 launch...

I like when they bring out the Show IT guy and he slams the idea of everything in the city being run on one OS

Depends on whether it's glitch-ridden or not.

Na I think otherwise. I think too much hype built up around the game, sony and ubi did closed playtests, and the feedback was negative. I think thats why it was delayed.

#40 Edited by airshocker (29872 posts) -

It will get 9, I bet. It's not average looking and it's a new IP.

#41 Posted by StrongDeadlift (5176 posts) -

Any hype or interest I had about the game died a few weeks ago during the downgrade debacle. I've barely watched any videos of the game since then due to not caring anymore. It seems like every game actually worth caring about on next gen consoles is getting delayed to 2015 anyways.

#42 Edited by PrincessGomez92 (3611 posts) -

My expectations aren't too high.

#43 Posted by NFJSupreme (5379 posts) -

What exactly looks bad about this game from a game play perspective?

#44 Posted by RageQuitter69 (1297 posts) -

No higher than an 8, unless the critic reviewing it wants to get fired, it is forbidden for open world games that contain a city, weapons and vehicles but the lack the title 'Grand Theft Auto' to score higher than an 8.

#45 Posted by ShoTTyMcNaDeS (2101 posts) -

It all depends on how they score it. If they simply say it is a prettier GTA clone, then yes, I can see it getting a 7. But if the game brings new elements to that genre, plus the new visuals of PC, X1 and PS4, then I say it should get atleast an 8!

#46 Posted by PAL360 (26931 posts) -

I believe it will get 8 and 9 in most places, and like an 8.8 metascore.

#47 Posted by bezza2011 (2548 posts) -

7 I think it will get, I'm sorry but the game looks like it has had a downgrade and it was delayed!!! I mean sometimes delays are good, and other times it mean's the game just sucks, not loving the graphics anymore and the car handling is meant to be bad, and i've heard alot of the missions are the same old over and over, for me I think the hype just went out the window each week after tons and tons of gameplay clips were shown and then get's delayed and now were shown worse graphics a little disheartened, i may still pick it up tho, i do have it pre ordered to go pick up, haven't paid for it tho.

#48 Edited by starwolf474 (695 posts) -

It wouldn't surprise me. I don't see what is supposed to be so great about this game; it looks average to me.

You know the strangest thing about maturity? The older and more mature you get, the less you want to be reminded of it.

I suspect that you are actually a teenager (an immature early twenties at the most), as this tends to be the age group who want to be mature but are in fact anything but.

The jealousy on display here is unbecoming..(unbecoming means unseemly)
