After seeing the footage in various video reviews I'm gonna have to go with a pass. I'm just bored of ubi games and attacking enemy bases full of dumb ai littered all over a big map. I haven't even finished AC 4 yet. I'll just wait for far cry 4 and maybe I'll get that craving again.

Game looks hella boring.

Eh maybe not hella boring .

But straight up uninspired and average? definitely.

Repetitive missions. Drive to guy. Get mission. Drive to mission.

Umm can't we move PASSED this boring ass structure? Seriously. No thanks and no thanks. Even GTA V managed to side step this to some degree and I got tired of THAT game before I finished it.

7.0... If there isn't a day one patch to fix the horrible bugs that I have seen floating around the net.

If they patch it then an 8.0.

Loading Video...

Was there a day one patch?

gtx570

Had to put the settings on medium and then set the textures and detail to high. runs at a stable 30fps now and looks decent.

If this was called gta6 you'd see a 9 everywhere. Anyways have plenty of games to play so this will have to wait.

You're making it sound as if this game isn't getting a pass because of the hype machine.

@b4x: I've had a 90mb download so yeh, hopefully it sorts some of that stuff.

Anyway i always forget just how awesome the PS4 is with installs. Only waiting i did was the game loading the world.

The fact that kevin gave it an 8 just shows its a good game. Pretty sure thats as high as his rating scale goes.

basically the game got a 10.

What a huge fail, considering the hype. Yeah, I smelled a rat, when they kept the embargo for so long ... but Ubi is not getting my money this time ...

I have 2GB of VRAM and the game is just going HAM on my 760, it's expected though cause this game does look pretty amazing 50% of the time while the other 50% is watered down.

Yeah for every good looking part, there's something that just looks awful/ could have been in gta 4.

Consistency is definitely not watchdogs strong suit.

this can't be how the end result should play, I'm expecting a patch to smooth this out.

Eh I wouldn't go that low, GTA 4 and the Saints games are probably one of the worst looking open world/sand box games out there the last few years.

before i even started the game, i logged on to it in the ps4 uplay store and used points i obtained from the last uplay game I played to buy some extra rewards. no errors.

This is a game that I must play a bit more than the two hours I have played it to try and see if it will grow on me. But for now, I am really disappointed with the driving, and police chases, which is really bad compared to GTA 5. They didn't really put any weight on that in the review which was a bit weird, since it is a big part of games like this.

It's a bit like LA Noir, the devs are prioritizing so much other stuff, that they neglecting some of the most basic and important functions in open world games.

But the city in Watch Dogs does at least feel alive, which I didn't expect them to achieve.

I got it today and am enjoying it. If you a computer geek and love to spy hack through lens then this game will hit you in the right spot. For others expecting another coming of christ .... sorry its just plain fun game and for those who loves gta and want to continue playing these type of games. As for me I do wanna continue but in a badass way of hacking. Graphics in this game is average but isnt taking away the fun though.

How's the melee combat?

Is it like AC or entirely different.

It's the usual press button (in this case B since I use a 360 controller for my PC) and Aiden does a take down, the animation is a lot more fluid so far than anything in Assassins Creed.

So it's like AC where you have to counter?

I'm okay with this if that's the case. GTA4 combat was horrible.

I haven't tried to straight up melee someone, just have done the typical stealth take downs or if I'm about to get caught I quickly melee them to take them out.

Having played it for a few hours now, it's safe to say it's an unoptimized piece of shit.

Graphics are fine, performance is horrendous.
