Superb driving physics unmatched in any other sandbox and some racing games, much more realistic weapons and explosions, and a more interactive stealth element to the game. Add on the downloadable content available and hands down you have a game of the year right here!

Watch Dogs was so overhyped. I bought it first day like a fool and was disappointed. The game focuses on it's single player mode, but even the story is lackluster. The main character is so unlikeable and the story is uninteresting. The story revolves around the death of a character which we never knew, thus never really cared about. The city isn't unique either. The driving is complete garbage, but on the other hand, some of the side missions are fun. Such as Gang Hideouts and the ctOS towers. Now, the multiplayer is disappointing. The free roam is awful. There aren't any coop missions or activities. You can't even hack your friends. The races suck, seeing as how the driving sucks. Cars aren't customizable. No aircrafts. No tanks, or anything interesting. The game uses aspects from Assassins Creed, but executes it poorly. This game didn't deserve the hype it got. It looked so much better at E3. Don't buy this game, instead, stick to GTA V or buy something else worthwhile.
Youre gonna compare this to GTA. Theres no way around it. Its got an Assassins Creed blend as well. Only problem is, they are both poorly executed in this game. This game is mostly an open world mess. The driving is one of the worst mechanics in this game. Its almost impossible to get away from cops unless you trigger one of the poorly placed traps within the city. You cant shoot while driving, and the cars handle very poorly. Driving is horrible.
The story is wonky, uninteresting and lack luster. Aieden, the main character is not motivating at all. The city is bland, and its interesting to read other peoples profiles a while, but gets boring really quick. Makes me feel like Im some sadistic social worker peeping tom who gets a kick out of looking at peoples background for fun. KINDA LAME.
The UI is a bit confusing, and upgrading feels useless. Hacking items to defeat enemies just feels like a bothersome chore. They would have done better to just make this game EXACTLY like GTA without the hacking. Avoid this one. Not very fun at all.
