    Watch_Dogs is pretty good, some minor issues but nothing major.

    I'm personally about 20hrs into the game now and still, finding the game fun and interesting whether I'm just walking around Chicago hacking people, checking out personal messages or spying on people. I got this game for... Read Full Review

    Terrible design, clunky interface and below average shooter at best

    I tried to like Defiance, after seeing it back on Steam as Free to Play I decided to give it a fair shot. It took nearly 3 days to actually play the game after installing it though, each time trying to play the server wo... Read Full Review
