    Watch Dogs????????

    Last night I picked up Watch dogs and maybe played for an hour or two and at the end of it I was just confused, has anyone else played it yet? Is anyone else confused? Or I'm I missing something?

    May need help understanding what is happening.

    Was interested in getting this but at 59.99 for the download and 44 from Amazon I couldn't justify the cost. Will wait a couple of weeks for the price to drop into the 3X region and then get it. I'm still busy playing other games anyway. I saw some of the many trailers and did have a worry that it may be too complicated for my unsophisticated playing style.

    DISCLAIMER: I haven't bought or played Watch_Dogs yet.


    I've seen a few reviews saying that the story is really convoluted, but the gameplay is awesome. It's not just you.

    Thought about it, then decided I'd be better off spending 25 on Wolfenstein: The New Order. Far more fun!

    I'd be interested to know what watchdogs is like. It looked a bit pants from the little I've seen about it.

    I've played it for a couple of hours. Nothing really difficult to understand yet as far as I can see. Pretty much a bog standard open world game. Very similar to Sleeping Dogs in gameplay style.

    Artwork suffers from it's last gen roots. Plastic faces, hair drawn on the sculp. I thought with The Last of Us and GTA:V we'd pretty much passed that.

    The NPC AI is very, very impressive on PS4. Chicargo really feels alive. The Hacking is everything I was expecting it to be. It's a single button affair, but you can pretty much hack anything at any time - it's not scripted. Love the multiplayer. Not as seemless has Ubi wants you to believe (2-3mins for a player match!) but alot of fun hacking into other peoples games (and other people hacking in to yours).

    Big city, lots todo. Tonight I'm going to complete the next mission and then start roaming around the city and unlocking the CtOS districts. May do a couple of multiplayer hacks as well if Ubi have sorted their servers out.

    I don't think the story/overall game is going to stand up too well against GTA:V, but I'm not going to complain too loudly. I'm pretty much the target audience for this!

    @APMerry, the game play is fine using the phone is really fun. Driving was not GTA5 so it was difficaut to get use to and I was just confused to what was happing, I'm going to start from the start just in case a miss something. That's just my view.

    Another way to find out what it is like would be watching a Let's play on youtube.

    Picked it up yesterday, nearly finished the first act, so far it's all pretty straight forward stuff. I saw some reviews had a few of the plot points wrong with regards to the relationship between certain characters though, that confused me for a few minutes.
    I like the fact that stealth is normally a perfectly viable option, I'm playing on realistic so being shot at means bad things :P
    The invasions are pretty fun too, did one this morning which involved me parking a pickup at the side of the road, cutting the engine and hiding in my seat while the poor sod ran around for the entire time scanning people walking past. Never found me.

    @synaesthesia Good choice! (Not buying over Watch_Dogs, just in general :P) Picked that up last week, got my plat on Friday night. Most fun I've had with an FPS in a very long time.

    The PC version shown at E3 2012 looked way better than what was eventually released. Such a shame!

    Anyone with the PS4 version able to test something for me?

    I've heard some rumors that you don't need PS+ for the multiplayer...

    Honestly, given the AI and Multiplayer, I can forgive this game a lot in the graphics department. I'd hate to play this on a last gen console.

    Not quickly/easily. I don't have Plus on my US account, but I'd have to start a new game and get past all the tutorial crap to test. My UK account, which I play all games on, is tied to Plus until the middle of next year (I think).

    Besides, who'd buy a PS4 without Plus? Crazy, the games on IGC each month are worth more than the 50 per year. And since so little as been released AAA wise, you need PS+ to have something to play on the machine!

    On the PSN+ note it switches to 2 games per month per platform in June (no year round games), which means 1 less per month for PS3, 1 more per month for PS4 and more rotation of games. 72 games a year or 5 days per game at just under 50p per game and that's without the flash sales, periodic sale and other games you may buy.
