I played about half way through this title and it just didn't hold my attention. Hacking mechanics were very cool, however online play was a let down. I caught myself comparing this to GTA V a lot, that might have been a huge reason why I didn't enjoy Watch Dogs as much as I could have. GTA V makes this game look like a watered down open world title. I would say if you like open world games but were too overwhelmed with everything GTA had to offer, this game might be a good fit for you!!
I am sick and tired of these games that play well for the most part only to be ruined at the end by the last part of the game becoming super hard to complete. I had fun right up until the end.Now I'm so angry you couldn't give me this game!
The graphics are fine.
the game play is okay for what It is.
The driving takes getting used to.
I can live with all that but why in the world do these game companies think most gamers like hard core impossible to beat games?This one's ruined for me.Thanks a lot Ubisoft!
I am really really angry right now. I wasted 30 plus hours only to be beaten not by the game per sec but by the jerks that think " ohh I know, let's give them a real challenge at the end." I had this game rated at 7 but after, many hours of trying to beat the final ending It stays a rating of 4 !

The good: HUGE OPEN World set in Chicago. You can hack anything and everything that's connected to the internet. Hacking bank accounts is so much fun and yet as easy as holding the X button. GTA style freedom with car jacking anything, robbing stores and bank accounts, go anywhere and cause chaos and then try to out maneuver the cops. So many mini games. Digital trips are something new and add so much more replay value to this game as well as all the other side missions, like stopping crimes, finding interesting items, etc.
The bad: graphics are still last gen but not bad. The game really shines on a rainy Chicago night. Character models are very good too.
Story feels like you've heard it before.
Online needs to take some lessons from GTA V.
Other than that this is a good GTA clone and the hacking just does it for me. Oh and did I mention you have a slo-mo power.
