Watch Dogs is a massive game, with so much content available it could keep someone entertained for weeks. Ubisoft did a fantastic job at matching these bits and pieces together, so that it doesn't become overwhelming or too tedious. Sure, the game feels like a mix of previous Ubisoft games, and some of the mechanics (reputation, in-game economy) are not as useful as one might expect, but these are minor complaints when talking about such an expansive game.
However, being a PC gamer, I just cannot overlook the state the game is in. The port is poorly optimized, with many a flaw, and oddly enough, not even having the same fidelity it was originally presented with back in 2012. Yet, if you can get over the technical aspects, Watch Dogs is a joy to play through, being one of the most believable and entertaining open-world games available.
