Product Description

Watch_Dogs

All it takes is the swipe of a finger. We connect with friends. We buy the latest gadgets and gear. We find out what’s happening in the world. But with that same simple swipe, we cast an increasingly expansive shadow. With each connection, we leave a digital trail that tracks our every move and milestone, our every like and dislike. And it’s not just people. Today, all major cities are networked. Urban infrastructures are monitored and controlled by complex operating systems.

Welcome to Chicago

In Watch_Dogs, this system is called the Central Operating System (CTOS) – and it controls almost every piece of the city’s technology and holds key information on all of the city’s residents.

Aiden Pearce

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. Now on the hunt for those who hurt your family, you'll be able to monitor and hack all who surround you by manipulating everything connected to the city’s network. Access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy… and more.


Hack the city

Watch_Dogs takes place in a fully simulated living city where, using your smartphone, you have real-time control over the city’s infrastructure. Trap your enemy in a 30-car pileup by manipulating the traffic lights. Stop a train, and then board it to evade the authorities. Narrowly escape capture by quickly raising a drawbridge. Anything connected to the city’s CTOS can become your weapon.

Street justice

Living in inner city Chicago where violence is best answered by violence, you have the skills to take the fight to the streets. Take down enemies by delivering devastating blows with your baton, or experience a shoot-out like never before with a physics simulation that rivals anything in the shooter category. Use a combination of shooting and hacking to gain advantage in any given situation. The streets are designed for you to create your own plan of attack.

High octane driving

Ubisoft Montreal has partnered with studios such as Ubisoft Reflections, the acclaimed studio behind the award-winning Driver series to bring you a game bursting with horsepower. Get behind the wheel of more than 65 vehicles, each with state of the art physics and handling, and explore the massive city while completing missions.

Everything is under control

Disrupt, the all-new game engine dedicated to Watch_Dogs, uses advanced processing and graphics to deliver a stunning visual and an incredibly realistic experience. Disrupt gives you the power to affect the story, the city and the life of the population with your choices creating a ripple effect throughout the city.

Seamless multiplayer experience

Discover new levels of interaction, cooperation and confrontation between players thanks to a brand new multiplayer game system that links the single and multiplayer modes into one seamless experience. That means no menus, no loading screens, just instant open world multiplayer action.

Stay connected with a new way to play

Take your experience beyond the console with a groundbreaking, real-time, companion game. This innovative mobile platform allows players to connect and compete with friends, even when away from their home console. The Watch_Dogs companion game delivers revolutionary dual-screen gameplay that enables you to play from anywhere, at any time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Over Hyped 3 Jun 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I think there was so much expectation around this that I'm actually disappointed with it.

Graphics look great, maxed out on my core i7 with a radeon 290 it runs pretty nice, maybe 30fps average. Dropping down to very high from ultra gives you a better experience.

Compared to something like GTA5, I think it gets boring quickly. The camera hacks are always the same, and they arent exactly difficult either. The main story is dragging a bit, and the side quests are thin on the ground when it comes to variety.

I like the gunplay, enemies look like you have really shot them in a certain place, you can shoot policemen in the leg etc.

Online stuff seems completely pointless unless you like killing each other for no good reason except to unlock all the games bonus features.

Personally I'd wait until you can pick this up for sub 30 quid, and don't even bother unless you have a really high spec machine.

I played sleeping dogs a lot more than this, and I completed GTA5. I can't see me seeing this through to the end though.

2.0 out of 5 stars A fairly poor game with few redeeming features 2 Jun 2014
By Gabriel
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
You only have to look at the reviews online to see that Watch Dogs has been pretty poorly received and there are good reasons for this - thankfully this was a free copy wth a video card, otherwise I would have been pretty unhappy that I'd not done more research. As PC games go its poor - mainly because it tries to do way too much and none of it well. Is it a hacking game? A conspiracy game? A stealth game? Worse, a driving game? Who knows - all of them but at a really, really superficial level. None of the mechanics are great and all smack of a focus on easy console controls - so virtually every activity from hacking to shooting is executed by point and click with a single key. So its not really hacking - its point at a clearly highlighted icon, click and...its done. Utterly utterly unchallenging. The driving mechanics are simply awful - I suspect that many of those who buy this game may not be old enough to actually drive, but trust me the mechanics (on the PC at least) are completely unlike driving and manouevring any car that I've come across and the acceleration/deceleration/steering physics are simply terrible - its more like floating a boat through the streets. Which begs the question - if the developers couldn't get it right then why did they make driving such an integral part of the game? Then there is the 'plot' and the voice acting - the plot is hackneyed and dull and the voice acting suggests that those involved also found the whole process tedious.

So, overall, a real dog's dinner of a game - tries to do way to much and does none of it even passably well. Over-emphasis on driving with dreadful driving mechanics and really too easy due to oversimplification for the console market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Innovation through environmental manipulation 29 July 2014
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Watch Dogs is based on an interesting premise: an open-world game where the protagonist has the ability to hack into all the electronic devices and features of a city with his mobile phone. The consequence of such power at the hands of the player is that a few central and long-standing elements in the open-world genre are made to feel fresh. In particular, gun fights and police chases.

In terms of gun fights, these do not play out as they do in other open-world games, which normally have the player taking cover and taking shots at enemies with an assortment of weaponry when the opportunities arise. The player does still take cover and assaults adversaries with a variety of weapons in Watch Dogs, but the ability to hack also provides the player with an unprecedented capacity to manipulate the environment and turn the environment into a weapon against enemies. The exploitation of the environment to one's advantage is what makes gun fights in Watch Dogs feel fresh and more exciting compared to gun fights in other open world games. To cite a few examples, players can make power generators explode next to enemies by hacking into them, immediately killing the enemies and even causing power blackouts which reduce the visibility of the remaining enemies as the lights go out. Or players can hack into the communication devices of enemies, such as their mobile phones, sending text messages to distract them, thereby allowing the player to line up a nice headshot while enemies are too busy reading text messages to realise a gun is being pointed right at them. More interestingly, a power generator or the mobile phone of an enemy does not have to be within the direct line of sight of the player in order for it to be hacked into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun open world game 8 July 2014
By Benminx
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
I loved Watchdogs. Like all the best open-world games, it had a strong single-player plot that was compelling to finish, and a lot of enjoyably distracting side missions to complete if you felt like spending a little more time in the world. All of the main roles are well voice acted (many of them exceptionally well), and the character animations are excellent to go with it. The emotional maturity of the game is also a nice change, as the story has a lot of heart to it (although that can be at odds with the option to destroy half the city if you choose to).
The game has a reputation system that rewards you if you choose to save citizens from crime, because they won't call the police to tip them off to your whereabouts. If you choose to act like a douche and wreck the place, causing careless casualties, you'll soon find locals ringing the cops once they spot you.
The game is also technically adept, with lots of fun things you can do, and systems you can exploit, from road barriers and steam pipes you can trigger to destroy pursuers, to bridges you can raise, elevated trains you can catch, and camera systems you can hack. It's nice to be in Chicago, as it's a lesser played game city with a nice variety of countryside, rivers, bridges and buildings, giving you the chance to properly use dirtbikes, trucks, sports cars and everything in between.
The driving game mechanics aren't great, but it's fun enough to drive and the vehicles all have a slight difference from each other in handling. Although they seriously resemble real vehicles, they're not visibly licensed and are often called different things. The same often goes for the weapons in the game, although some do retain their proper names.
The bad guys are moderately challenging on Normal difficulty, and AI can be decent.
