Watch Dogs is a victim of its own hype when it comes to what the game looks like, and what types of gameplay is actually in the finished product. A lot of Watch Dogs relies on rehashed ideas from other games, and isn’t quite a generational leap for the open world genre. There are some undoubtedly great parts of Watch Dogs that feel fresh and innovative, but Ubisoft too often falls back on the tried and true to round out the game instead.

Watch Dogs was probably never going to be the ground-breaking “next-gen” experience many had envisioned back in 2012. It’s hardly run-of-the-mill but at the same time only makes a few genuine attempts to break the mould. However, in these areas – such as the online multiplayer – there are genuine glimmers of innovation worthy of merit, and if you look anywhere else, players will still find an open-world game backed by a unique premise and solid core gameplay.

The game clearly isn’t without its problems and it is unfortunate that these problems are easier to point out than its successes. Watch Dogs really only does one thing well, but it is consistent with this. It lacks a lot of what you want from this type of game, but the campaign provides you with enough thrills to warrant a purchase. It’s a good start to a franchise, but it has a lot of problems that would need ironing out in a potential sequel. Watch Dogs will give you a lot of enjoyment, for a while, but its not an experience that will stick with you and its certainly not without its flaws.
