A very enjoyable exp. long as u play past the intro lvl

Definitely a cut above the first watch dogs. The complaints were addressed, (Just Cause devs could learn a lesson, I prefer walking not sliding) Plenty to do, and enjoyable enough that i played 2 and a half times in a row, ready for 3rd, just waiting on some expansions and dlc's

An improvement from the original... slightly

They have kept and improved most of the things that you liked about the original game, but in terms of the genre, this game does little to push the boundaries. You know you are playing WATCH_DOGS, but most of the time that is NOT for good reason. Most of the things that we take for granted in an RPG are somehow, either missing or just.... off. The need for currency in the game is pretty much nonexistant after you own the 3 weapons and 4 vehicles that you will actually use. The game can be approached different ways, but not fairly to each method. It generally supports 3 different approaches, but you are "penalized" (for lack of a better word) for using any approach other than the one with the least interactivity. This makes every mission seem just like the last one, and eventually they are. Even the things that we are supposed to believe are "random", don't even come close. That said, I enjoyed the game, but don't have any ideas of it being WATCH_DOGS 2.0, it's more like 1.1.

Cool Game

Lets you hack everything! Cars, bank accounts, the city, and more. Replayable more than once too. Multiplayer is nice and smooth as well. DLCs, however (a lot!) are not included in the season pass. Only the t-bone content pack, Human Conditions and No Compromise are included. Ubisoft has to make us pay 2.99 or 7.99 just for ONE DLC. Overall, Watch_Dogs 2 is a great game and I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys a game that has to do with today's real world problems.

Enjoyable but can be short depending on play style

This is one of my personal favorite games in my collection and they even added tons of little details to make it even more fun. But with that being said if your a person who rushes through i wouldn't recommend.

Better than Most

In a crowded time I originally over looked this game even though I was a fan of the original. I can say without doubts, this game is too awesome to let slip by. As someone born and raised in Cali. this game is amazing in scope. You can even visit surrounding areas to San Francisco like Oakland and were I was born, Stanford U. Palo Alto! The graphics, mechanics and attention to details are mind blowing coupled with a fresh story that feels genuine and fun. GET THIS GAME!

Very similar to the first Game, With a couple new toys!

If you absolutely loved the first game you should enjoy this sequal. New Vehicles, New Guns,,a few other cool new toys and gadgets.+,fun story. Gameplay. Very Similar to the 1st Watchdogs but still better than the 1st. So if you liked or loved it you'll enjoy this one at least. For a little while. Honestly give it like 3.75 stars, because I had high hopes for the game. Dont get me wrong it was good but it didnt quite hold up to the hype.

great sequel

i loved the original game and with watch dogs 2 i still love it but the multiplayer never seems to find any other players and the graphics i don't think they put as much effort on it as they did on the original watch dogs

Really nice but....

Ok the game is great with its story and graphics and how every NPC literally are doing real life things unlike GTA 5 with most of their NPC's are just standing or sitting but I wish the game was more rewarding. You get money but when you buy all the clothes, cars, and guns (which needs to be more customizable) what do you buy? You cant buy a house or a garage or anything which would be nice. And it would be amazing if there were more hacking styles. Also I wish there were more activitys besides side missions. Anyways imma quit complaining because its still a good game but it could have included way more fun things in it. btw I like how leaves fall on your car and when you drive away they fly off 😋 little things like that made me enjoy the game more.

Better than than first game

Decent game. Game has a fun sandbox. Good story. Big prblem I have with this game is its horrible DRM, if I get disconnected from online. Game lags then crashes. All I want is to play single player campaign without online content..

Here is my review. Do what you will.

This entry into the Watch Dogs series was a definite improvement from the first. The game follows a much younger protagonist, so it shapes a whole different outlook on the game. The characters were very well portrayed and the game has a very well written story that just pulls you in. The progression of abilities was while only slightly different from the previous title was done well and showed growth in the lead characters hacking skills. Other improvements over the first title such as permenantly buying veichles, better fast travel andco-op gameplay made my time playing this much more entertaining. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new open world game to play and I excitedly await the release of future dlc.
