Watch Dogs Legion is a fun and satisfying open world sandbox, with lots of tools for destruction and various strategies to go about completing your objective. It’s great in short bursts, but rarely has you hooked on any one thing to keep you coming back.
Cade OnderOct 28, 2020
While it has its moments, Watch Dogs Legion doesn't have enough to feel like a fun place to escape to. The gameplay is too repetitive and too restrictive to allow for anything tremendously exciting over a long period of time. It's a game that shows all of its tricks within the first few hours and leaves you with nothing but jank for the remainder of your playthrough.

The graphics of the game are very solid although some of the character facial animations seem a bit dated at times but in no way detract from the game. In the end Watch Dogs: Legion is a winning new entry in the series and I look forward to the online option of the game which is due in December.

Watch Dogs: Legion does most things right. The hacking component works amazingly well, letting players infiltrate locations with minimal attention from guards patrolling the areas when done correctly. Sneaking around and using the available cover works satisfactorily too, giving players the opportunity to take out guards one at a time.

Even though Watch Dogs Legion already gives you an impressive amount to do as well as a lot of options on how to do it, it’s still going to be growing. I can’t wait to see what’s coming next and how It is going to affect what’s already in place. I’m also looking forward to the multiplayer component, which I’m more than willing to write about when it comes out. So, come on. Join the resistance.

While it may not win any awards for the story, Watch Dogs: Legion is an enjoyable sandbox that gives you plenty of room to play around and experiment with objectives. If stealth gameplay is your thing, put this one on your pickup list.
Rosh KellyOct 28, 2020
Watch Dogs Legion is a great step forward for the series, with enough experimental new gameplay features to complement the familiar mechanics. London is incredible, and exploring it is an almost visceral experience. It's just a shame that the story doesn't hold the same familiarity that the map does.
Alex AvardOct 28, 2020
Despite the deficiencies that underscore both its storytelling and gameplay, Legion thus represents an aspiring, albeit somewhat clumsy, step forward for the series at large. If a continued pivot towards dystopianism is what's needed to inspire Ubisoft to keep refining and honing its new APC formula for Watch Dogs' future, then I say bring on the end of the world as we know it.
Mike WilliamsOct 29, 2020
The new "Play As Anyone" system is as impressive as it sounds on paper, creating a host of intriguing characters if you choose to dive into their backgrounds. Crafting your own version of DedSec is a ton of fun, especially early on. The problem is the gameplay of Watch Dogs Legion is mostly the same as its predecessors and the missions are quite repetitive overall.

Watch Dogs: Legion made some hefty promises leading up to launch, and I’m happy to report it follows through on the big ones. Recruiting anyone off the street always impresses, even if the missions can be redundant. I loved the story being told, some moments truly make me gasp in surprise or even horror.
Tim McDonaldOct 28, 2020
The connected, living world here is a genuine revelation, and it's well worth exploring if you're willing to mess around and make your own fun. It's just a shame that some of the vibrancy and depth of Watch Dogs 2 has been lost in the process.

watch dogs legion, like most of ubisoft’s big budget games, is disposable – a value-sized bag of chips. the gameplay experience is pleasurable and addicting by nature, making you want to play even if you don’t feel like it. and when you get sick of it, you just throw it away.
Donovan ErskineOct 28, 2020
Watch Dogs: Legion is undoubtedly the most fun and exciting entry in the series. Play as anyone is a mechanic that really elevates the gameplay experience, truly delivering on the core premise of the franchise. The campaign is solid, though it lacks the emotional investment and standout characters of previous series entries. Watch Dogs: Legion is a hacking good time and a great addition to Ubisoft’s technology-based saga.
Christopher LivingstonOct 28, 2020
Watch Dogs Legion's play-as-anyone gamble just about pays off. Most of London's citizens are way too ordinary to be much fun, but the few I grew to care about wound up feeling more important to me than most videogame protagonists ever do. Not bad for a group of randomly generated misfits. And I even wound up loving all those drones.
Ben BaylissOct 28, 2020
The recruitment system is vast and those recruitment missions and borough opportunities don’t feel like irritating side-quests and make your role in the city more prominent, although they do suffer in feeling repetitive. All of this tied up in the image of a possibly soon-to-be London makes Watch Dogs Legion an enjoyable experience, but one I felt didn’t match the quality of feeling as robust as Watch Dogs 2.
Sebastian LundinOct 28, 2020
In the end, Watch Dogs: Legion is a really entertaining game that takes place in a fantastic environment and it constantly makes me want to come back for more. Much of the merit goes to the city of London, with all its history and diversity, but also the main story offers some brilliant experiences with some really fun missions that I will undoubtedly remember.
Mick FraserOct 28, 2020
Watch Dogs: Legion suffers from a little jank in the tank, but the recruitment system is fantastic and there's just so much to see and do. The open world is full of detail, and the whole experience is full of heart.
Miguel MoranOct 28, 2020
Watch Dogs Legion is a different type of sequel to Watch Dogs 2, contrasting in its approach to creating a hackable open world playground, but with no less impressive results. Playing as any citizen in London leads to some less-than-engaging story moments, but the web of relationships and activities that crop up as a result of the systemic design is mind-blowing.
Marcello PerriconeNov 05, 2020
I really wanted to like the game and I would love to spend more time in its fake and wildly inaccurate representation of my own city, but the uninspiring gameplay and poor performance make that a very hard proposition. The truth is it’s even hard to recommend it to anyone but the most diehard fans of the series – Watch Dogs Legion is at times a fun game, but it can’t in all honesty be called a good one.
Dustin BaileyOct 28, 2020
Richly realised systems and empowering abilities create a tremendously fun sandbox to dig into, but another toothless story ensures these flashes of brilliance never cohere, leaving Legion feeling less than the sum of its parts.
Kosta AndreadisNov 02, 2020
In the end, with more varied activities that went beyond the usual by-the-numbers story missions, say, a more emergent city full of events to match the unpredictability of who you control - then Watch Dogs: Legion could have been an experience on par with its impressive technology. As it stands it’s a fight and a cause worth joining, but like its cast your reasons might only extend to the escape from the monotony of a normal everyday existence.
Luke LawrieOct 28, 2020
The hacking functions are relatively the same as previous editions in the series, and once you have spent a few hours in this world there isn’t much left to surprise you. There’s some fun to be had in Watch Dogs Legion, but it becomes so repetitive that by the end of the game everything feels like a chore — one I was desperately wanting to be over hours before its credits rolled.
Alejandro CastilloOct 28, 2020
En conclusión, Legion sacia la sed de Watch Dogs entre sus seguidores, al mismo tiempo que puede reunir a recién llegados atraídos por su gran mecánica inédita. La secuela debe ir mucho más allá: es hora de dar el siguiente paso de calidad.
Elena SchulzOct 28, 2020
Gerade mit leistungsfähiger Hardware lohnt sich die PC-Version von Watch Dogs Legion also. Und auch spielerisch sticht die Open World hervor: Ja, weder Fahren noch Schießen gehören hier zur spielerischen Königsklasse. Dafür beschert uns das neue Rekruten-Feature aber soviel Abwechslung, wie wir sie selten in einer offenen Welt erlebt haben.
Benjamin SchmädigNov 02, 2020
Watch Dogs: Legion hätte kein schlechtes Spiel sein müssen, denn in dem Cyberpunk-Thriller steckt viel Gutes. Das fängt bei den zahlreichen Gadgets und Kameras an, aus deren Sicht man heimlich die Umgebung manipuliert und geht über die auf den ersten Blick beeindruckende Kulisse bis zum Rekrutieren von Agenten mit individuellen Stärken.
Maximilien CagnardOct 28, 2020
Cette ambiance réussie va de pair avec une réalisation graphique de haute volée qui, toutefois, s’avère assez contrastée selon les plateformes. Autant l’expérience s’affirme totalement sur PC que sur consoles, et plus particulièrement sur PS4 Pro (console depuis laquelle nous avons réalisé ce test), le résultat est inégal avec un clipping présent et, surtout, de nombreux problèmes techniques.
KaarajOct 28, 2020
Quelques stigmates des précédents opus - moteur physique et collisions datées, IA des ennemis encore bien étrange - viennent ici tempérer quelque peu notre enthousiasme et montrent toute l’imperfection de Legion, mais celui-ci dispose de suffisamment de qualités pour convaincre les amateurs de la licence de s’y replonger une nouvelle fois.
Paolo SirioOct 28, 2020
Watch Dogs Legion si è confermato il capitolo con più personalità e fegato della serie hacker di Ubisoft, arricchendola di sistemi coraggiosi come quello che ha portato alla rinuncia di un protagonista forte e un'ambientazione ispirata. Quest'ultima avrebbe meritato di più, al pari di una progressione che, nonostante gli apprezzabili sforzi in fase di design, non è riuscita a scrollarsi di dosso la patina di genericità che affligge le produzioni più recenti dell'editore francese.
Simone RampazziOct 28, 2020
Watch Dogs: Legion parte con delle idee di fondo davvero intriganti, idee che cercano di scavare a fondo con l’intenzione di lasciarci con molti più interrogativi sul futuro prossimo. Il controllo opprimente di uno stato pronto a sapere ogni cosa dei cittadini che governa lascia però spazio a delle incertezze sul gameplay, una nota dolente che impedisce al titolo di brillare come sperato.
Денис КнязевOct 28, 2020
Центральная идея Watch Dogs: Legion все же выглядит гораздо более удачной — она хотя бы работает так, как задумали разработчики. Ну, и выглядит интересной — попробовать сыграть в Legion точно стоит, чтобы оценить все самому. Опыт уникальный. Только нужно быть готовым к очевидным недостаткам такого подхода.
Emre YurtOct 28, 2020
Ubisoft’un son zamanlarda adından söz ettirdiği oyunu olan Watch Dogs 2’yi kendi gözlemlerim ile sizler için yorumladım. Yukarıda da belirttiğim gibi, görevlere, karakter ve araç kullanım mekaniklerine biraz daha özen gezdirilse, bu yılın ses getirecek oyunlarından birisi olmayı başarabilirdi diye tahmin ediyorum.

Watch Dogs Legion doet veel goed. Zo zijn de verhalende missies zeer interessant, zijn de mogelijkheden tot personalisatie heel groot en ziet en voelt de hele wereld als een Michelin-sterren-gerecht. Helaas zitten er ook wat frituurfanaten tussen de wereldgerechten. Accenten zijn om van te gruwelen, het hacken had uitgebreider gemogen en het rekruteren voor DedSec heeft nog flinke stappen te gaan.
saverOct 28, 2020
Celkovo je Watch Dogs: Legion na jednej strane pôsobivý, s prepracovaným mestom, dobrými hernými mechanikami a dostatkom obsahu. K tomu online kooperácia a jej vlastné misie to celé v decembri ešte rozšíria. Na druhej strane engine sabotuje to, čo sa hra snaží ponúknuť a ovládanie vozidiel, animácie, AI alebo optimalizácia nie sú tam, kde by mohli byť.

Η ιστορία του Watch Dogs: Legion έχει μεγαλύτερο βάθος και περισσότερο ενδιαφέρον από τα προηγούμενα δύο παιχνίδια της σειράς. Το παιχνίδι με το hacking δείχνει να είναι στα καλύτερά του, φανερώνοντας την πρόοδο που έχει γίνει σ’ αυτόν τον τομέα, ειδικά όταν απαιτείται η πορεία stealth, ενώ ο κόσμος του δείχνει πανέμορφος, είναι γεμάτος με πράγματα που μπορούν να απασχολήσουν τον παίκτη.
