With the technical problems of the Xbox One version smoothed out and enhancements to the visuals and performance across the board, I can much more easily recommend the Xbox Series X version but that doesn’t fix the core design problems. Watch Dogs: Legion is incredibly impressive, but only insomuch as it is flawed. Thankfully, there is still a competent third-person open-world game at its core.
Watch Dogs: Legion sees DedSec return to a hugely impressive representation of near-future London that looks and sounds amazing but can't long cover for the fact the core gameplay here is repetitive, janky stuff that's barely evolved since the days of Aiden Pearce. Traversal is hampered by uninspired, tanky vehicles, combat is scruffy, enemy AI disappointing, and hacking and sneaking highly repetitive.
Watch Dogs: Legion has a lot of good qualities going for it, even the remote-controlled Spiderbot which replaces the Quadcopter and RC Jumper from Watch_Dogs 2, but I can’t overlook the crashes & save issues. There’s fun to be had here but when the game won’t work, or doesn’t save four hours of progress, it’s difficult to actually have that fun.
