I've played this game twice, and it was amazing both times. It's kinda similar to Watch Dogs 1 but I still loved it. From the hacking to the parkour, you feel so free when you can just roam around the world and stuff.

Watch Dogs 2’s distinctive hacking and puzzle mechanics do a great job of reminding you that you’re not playing just another Grand Theft Auto clone as you tear through it’s beautiful Bay Area map. Marcus is a bit too friendly of a guy to be believable as our instrument of mayhem, but the flexible missions let you get through mostly non-violently if you’re good enough at stealth. And when it works, multiplayer is good unconventional cat-and-mouse fun, too.
Overall, Watch Dogs 2 improves on the original game in many ways, the driving controls are a lot looser and more responsive, the visuals are brighter and more colorful and most importantly the hacking mechanic has been utilized to allow a lot more freedom in how you want to play the game and generally adds more fun to the whole experience. There is also a solid musical upgrade thanks to a custom soundtrack composed by the excellent Hudson Mohawke.
Watch Dogs 2 addresses many of the issues of the first game, putting hacking at the forefront, but its narrative struggles to stay engaging. Although the cast is unlikeable, the parodies and its ability to not take itself seriously brings charm. The stellar hacking mechanics can make your actions, such as taking control of a satellite in outer space, feel grandiose and unstoppable in entertaining ways.
