Watch_Dogs combines an astonishingly detailed world, a gripping storyline, creative game mechanics, a myriad of missions and activities, and improvisational tactical sandbox gameplay to create a truly next-generation open world game. Phenomenal. No other word for it.

Watch Dogs is a game that has delivered on so many fronts only to be given bad press for doing so. I am not going to bamboozle you with fancy words to describe how it performs, or how it fails in the eyes of others. I am here to give you my opinion. Watch Dogs is a hell of a game, a technical masterpiece, that creates a stunningly beautiful world and fills it with interesting content for players to enjoy. It gives gamers something for everyone, a host of multiplayer options, a single player campaign, side missions, shooting, driving, hacking, stealth and the freedom to try all of these as and when you want. If you cut through the bullshit of others, and play the game before forming an opinion you will be surprised in may ways by what Watch Dogs has to offer.

With a deep storyline, plenty of side content, and a gorgeous rendering of Chicago to explore, Watch Dogs brings a lot to the table and truly unlocks next-generation graphics in a whole new way. Watch Dogs is a beautiful, mesmerizing title.

Watch Dogs could've easily been Grand Theft Auto with tech equipment. But Ubisoft Montreal has managed to flesh out this experience as something more, making fantastic use of the technology and applying it just right to deliver a remarkably deep experience. Furthermore, the presentation is quite good on newer game machines, and all the aspects click--albeit with somewhat inconsistent driving controls and AI. This game may have been a long time coming, but it's been worth the wait.

Själva hacker-delen gör att Watch Dogs särskiljer sig helt från genrekonkurrensen och det är befriande att se hur Ubisoft Montreal valt att porträttera ett modernt övervakningssamhälle med små, subtila medel snarare än att klampa in med stora Skynet-domedags-profetian som en del av mig hade förväntat sig. Detta handlar om hämnd. Om ren och skär hämnd och om alla de ofrånkomliga intrång i våra privatliv genom nyttjande av vardagsteknologi som mobiltelefoner och övervakningskameror. Och i slutändan pratar vi om en otroligt skickligt sammansatt produkt.

Ubisoft Montreal debutta quindi in modo convincente, con un gioco che pur senza mostrare i picchi sperati getta delle solidissime basi per un promettente futuro. Watch Dogs convince infatti grazie a un gameplay vario e solido, all'ottima longevità e al buon comparto tecnico. Per raggiungere il livello di Grand Theft Auto, però, Ubisoft deve trovare quella spregiudicatezza e quel coraggio che rendono unici i giochi di Rockstar, quella voglia di stupire e di far discutere che rende immortali certi personaggi e certi dialoghi.

WindowsCheat Code Central (May 27, 2014)
Watch_Dogs has its up and downs. The game was designed to put control into the player’s hands and it succeeded. I thought the concept was incredibly epic and it didn’t leave me with that “I wish I could do this” feeling I get from some games. The power to play the game how you want is also a bonus. Also, if you’re looking for a game with a ton of replay value, Watch_Dogs will definitely do it. While I figured Watch_Dogs would have been a more sophisticated version of GTA, it isn’t. It can be frenetic at times and sometimes, that’s all you need to have some fun.

Xbox OneTrueAchievements (Jun 06, 2014)
Ultimately, if you’re coming into the game filled with hype, you may feel a little bit disappointed that it isn’t all that you hoped for, but that doesn’t make Watch_Dogs a bad game. It’s a solid experience throughout, but just misses "must-play".

Gameplay original et convaincant, level design intelligent et immersion garantie, Watch Dogs est un très bon jeu en monde ouvert qui n'a pas à rougir face à la concurrence. Il se distingue toutefois avec une approche souvent plus subtile et un univers entièrement tourné vers le hacking, qu'il s'agisse de détruire les véhicules, récupérer des missions annexes ou encore infiltrer les systèmes de sécurité. Certes, on pourra lui reprocher un scénario sans grande surprise ou quelques impairs techniques, mais ce serait bien vite oublier les nombreux effets de qualité qui accompagnent avec brio votre aventure dans les rues de Chicago. Quant aux amateurs de nouvelles expériences, ils pourront aussi apprécier le mode multijoueur qui pose les jalons d'un nouveau modèle taillé pour la next-gen. Pour un premier épisode, Watch Dogs aura en tout cas atteint son objectif : proposer un gameplay et un univers original qui se distingue des GTA-Like. Et ce n'était pas gagné d'avance.

WindowsExplosion (Jun 01, 2014)
Watch Dogs feels like your traditional blockbuster game. While offering a smattering of mechanics which are fun to play with, the game attempts to color within the lines of traditional design and give players the experience expected of an Ubisoft product. With so much riding on the line, it is hard to find fault in Ubisoft’s safe strategy. I don’t blame Watch Dogs for not taking chances, but it makes it impossible to really fall in love with the game. AAA games are something different these days, they are investments which need to work within the expectations we have forged over the years with established publishers. While it means we’ll get polished games with bits of flair, it also means games like Watch Dogs fail to give us something truly exciting.

Watch Dogs dimostra di essere un titolo estremamente solido grazie ad un ottimo gameplay, caratterizzato da una gradita sfumatura stealth, ed un'altissima varietà di cose da fare: tra i tanti tipi di missioni principali e attività secondarie non vi annoierete di certo. La prima avventura di Aiden Pearce presta però il fianco ad una storia priva di mordente ed un protagonista scarsamente caratterizzato, oltre a non riuscire a distinguersi sufficientemente dagli altri titoli dello stesso genere. E' comunque un ottimo titolo ed un buon inizio per il franchise, capace di tenervi impegnati per molte ore: merita sicuramente il vostro tempo.

Ach, Watch Dogs! Du hast mir so viel Spaß bereitet und trotzdem bin ich etwas enttäuscht von dir. So cool es auch war, mit einem fetten Soundtrack durch deine schöne Stadt zu rasen, so hervorragend wie dein Gameplay funktioniert und so sehr mich deine Optik auch anspricht, genauso sehr haben mich auch deine banale Story und die oftmals furchtbare Darstellung der Charaktere genervt. Es ist mir ein Rätsel, wie man so viel Potenzial einfach verschenken kann. Bitte lege beim nächsten Mal mehr Wert auf eine ausgefeilte Erzählung und kreativere Missionsabläufe, denn dann bin ich rundum zufrieden.

Watch Dogs'u oynarken aklınızdan geçecekleri az çok tahmin edebiliyorum; biraz Splinter Cell, biraz Deus Ex, biraz Assassin's Creed, hatta evet biraz da GTA... Bunun iyi mi yoksa, kötü bir şey mi olduğuna siz karar verin ve en önemlisi geçtiğimiz E3 fuarında gördüğünüz grafikleri tamamen unutun. Ubisoft grafik anlamında ne yazık ki yeterince çalışamamış. Umuyorum gelecekte firma, bu tarz ufak tefek hataları düzeltme yoluna gider, aksi takdirde Watch Dogs raflarda toz tutmaya mahkum. Ayrıca inanıyorum ki bu oyunun ikincisi, oldukça başarılı olacak. Kısmet, nasip diyelim...

Xbox OneWorth Playing (May 27, 2014)
Ultimately, Watch Dogs feels a lot like what you'd get if you asked the Assassin's Creed team to make a game in a similar vein as Deus Ex: Human Revolution. While it doesn't quite hit the high points that Deus Ex does, Watch Dogs smartly combines elements of the two franchises into something that's certainly worth playing.

Xbox OneXboxAchievements (May 31, 2014)
Watch Dogs is an unmitigated triumph, that’s for sure. Considering the game is a new IP, it does a lot of things incredibly well and lays the foundation for a franchise that has the makings of being a potential Assassin’s Creed beater. Despite a few puzzling design decisions and an almost glacial start to the campaign, Watch Dogs is worthy of your time. There’s no doubt about that.

Watch_Dogs might not be perfect, but it's a good game non-the-less and worth your money if you can get past the issues with the writing and suffer a few false starts with some of the missions. It has a lot of ambient life, atmosphere, great gameplay and value in the package.

Gamers may have had impossibly high hopes for Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs before the delays and other bad buzz moments dragged them down, but I’m happy to say that most reasonable hopes have been thoroughly satisfied. With new twists on the open world action format and a storyline that keeps you wondering, impressive visuals and a world of things to do this game is one that will keep people involved for quite a long time. Sandbox games may sometimes feel like they’re all different flavors of the same thing, but at least here Ubisoft has at least found a flavor that works.

WindowsGameStar (Germany) (May 28, 2014)
Vielleicht hatte das Team auch einfach noch kein wirklich klares Bild davon, was Watch Dogs denn nun sein will. »Härter und realistischer als GTA« stand vermutlich in irgendeinem Mission-Statement, ohne zu erwähnen, dass das eine Abgrenzung ist – aber keine Identität. In Sachen Fuhrpark, dem vielseitigen Missionsdesign und vor allem in der Gestaltung der Spielwelt und ihrer Geschichten liegt Rockstar zwar weiterhin vorne. Aber Ubisofts erste direkte Kampfansage an GTA ist bravourös gelungen, zeigt großes Potenzial.

PlayStation 4IGN (May 27, 2014)
One-button hacking might be overly simplistic, but it does give you abilities that make playing through Aiden’s story feel powerful and fun. Doing side missions and multiplayer as you make your way through the dark and lengthy story makes it feel like a huge adventure, and stealth options let you play smart if you prefer. Car chases aside, Watch Dogs is fundamentally very well made, and has more than enough unique ideas to make it a great and memorable open-world action game.

WindowsIGN (May 27, 2014)
I was mere hours from posting a review on Sunday with a greatly reduced score attached when a patch resolved most of my performance problems. [Note: I can only assume there was a stealth patch, since it simply started running well where it had not before.] Watch Dogs on PC still isn't a fantastically well optimized game, but my nearly four-year-old GTX 570 is able to deliver over 30fps (sometimes over 60) on medium settings. I do experience a few dropped frames here and there, but as of this writing it's otherwise just as good as the PS4 version (better, if you've got newer hardware) and just as easy to recommend. Naturally you do have to suffer through the inconvenience of Ubisoft's Uplay login nonsense, and Aiden's smartphone menu system is a pain to navigate with the mouse.

Xbox OneIGN (May 27, 2014)
The slightly lower resolution is the only noticeable difference between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Watch Dogs, and I doubt I’d have picked up on it if I hadn’t just come from playing the PS4 version. I did quickly disable the trigger vibrations in the options menu -- they appear to happen when your car shifts gears (which is automatic), which I found to be useless and distracting feedback.
84
Xbox 360IGN (May 27, 2014)
Naturally the Xbox 360 version doesn't look as nice as the newer generation consoles when it comes to texture resolution, physics objects like debris and smoke, and draw distance, but it does look respectable for a game on this platform in 2014. More importantly, it runs consistently, avoiding the major performance problems that drag down the PlayStation 3 version. The only notable differences content-wise are the disappointing lack of the Decryption multiplayer mode and the multiplayer free-roam mode, but those absences don't make me recommend it any less for those who don't own a PS4 or Xbox One.

PlayStation 4Polygon (May 27, 2014)
As an open world game, Watch Dogs provides “enough” — enough sidequests, enough space, enough of a playground — to qualify, but it doesn’t quite place. Other games have nailed a better balance in optional activities and large-scale ambiance, including other games from Ubisoft Montreal itself. But when Watch Dogs focuses on the things it does better than anyone else, it finds an identity worth developing. As a hybrid open-world stealth-action game, it’s in a class by itself.

Wii U3D Juegos (Nov 26, 2014)
Con sus virtudes y sus defectos, Watch Dogs es una propuesta de veras interesante que sin ser original en su acción y presentar un argumento bastante flojo, merece la pena probar. La posibilidad de hackearlo prácticamente todo, y aprovecharse de esa cualidad mientras se explora una ciudad tan grande como Chicago, son dos bazas que hacen de este título de Ubisoft una obra de lo más recomendable. Aunque llegue seis meses tarde a Wii U.

Xbox OneDestructoid (May 27, 2014)
Despite the fact that Watch Dogs hasn't made any meaningful impact on the genre, I found myself having a ton of fun with it. Between the deep levels of customization and the sheer breadth of content, there's no shortage of things to do. If Ubisoft can take the game's core fun factor and marry it with an actual "next-gen" experience the next time around, they'll have something truly special.

Xbox OneDigitally Downloaded (May 28, 2014)
In a day and age when Internet and personal privacy appear to be very liquid ideas, Watch Dogs resonates with just a little more impact as you guide Aiden on his quest for revenge. The overall package is a good one, with a lot of care and features that make Watch Dogs feel like a more sophisticated Grand Theft Auto. It is not quite the revolutionary title people were hoping for, but Watch Dogs is still an excellent game in its own right.
80
Xbox OneGameSpot (May 27, 2014)
Aiden's soul is still locked away, too, even though I spent dozens of hours with him. But while I can't say who Aiden truly is, I can confidently say that Watch Dogs is a lushly produced and riotous game with an uncanny ability to push you from one task to the next, each of which is just as fun as the last. This version of Chicago is crawling with a hyperbolic number of degenerates, and I didn't mind squashing pyromaniacs and slavers under my tires as I plowed through the streets chasing after a hacker, hip-hop beats blasting from the radio. After all, the struggling mothers and homeless beggars wandering Chicago deserve some peace of mind, and doling out some street justice is a good first step.

Το Next Gen στοίχημα δεν κερδίζεται από το Watch Dogs. Όχι τουλάχιστον με τον τρόπο που το έχουμε αναγάγει σε gaming ιδανικό που θα φέρει μία μικρή επανάσταση σε κάποιον τέλος πάντων τομέα. Αλλά το παιχνίδι διαπρέπει σαν last-gen ή no-gen παιχνίδι, και μάλιστα σε τομείς που πολλοί άλλοι δημιουργοί του χώρου θεωρούσαν περιττό να ρίξουν το μεγάλο βάρος, εφόσον προσέφεραν μεγάλους χάρτες, πολλά οχήματα κτλ. Πολύ περισσότερο θέτει ισχυρές βάσεις για κάτι που μπορεί στο μέλλον να καταλήξει σε δυστοπικό Assassin’s Creed, ελπίζουμε όχι με ετήσια επεισόδια. Το μεράκι των δημιουργών είναι εμφανές, όπως όμως είναι εμφανές και το άγχος τους να προσφέρουν και πολλά άλλα πράγματα. Ίσως στο επόμενο Watch Dogs, όπου θα έχουν ξεχωρίσει την ήρα από σιτάρι, να προσφέρουν ένα πραγματικό αριστούργημα.

Voltando à questão inicial, será que Watch Dogs corresponde às expectativas? Como um jogo apresentando e prometido para a nova geração de consolas, fica uns centímetros abaixo do que estávamos à espera, particularmente quando nos lembramos do que a Rockstar conseguiu alcançar com GTA V. Mas a comparação é injusta. Watch Dogs é um jogo de início de geração e seria impensável que tão cedo teríamos um jogo a roçar a perfeição. As suas falhas são menores, não passam despercebidas mas não também não incomodam muito. E quando digo que Watch Dogs não corresponde às expectativas, não me refiro apenas à parte tecnológica, novos conceitos e ideias são a parte fundamental. Neste aspecto, está encaminhado num bom caminho, alias, é importante sublinhar que temos aqui um jogo que na maioria das vezes é muito bom, mas ainda há potencial para explorar no futuro.

Estamos, pues, ante un juego divertido pero con el que tienes la sensación de que no han acabado de concretar tanto como nos hubiese gustado, y sin demasiado impacto en el género. Como juego de mundo abierto, que al fin y al cabo es lo que es, está lejos de la grandilocuencia y la solemnidad de los Grand Theft Auto, mucho más vivos y carismáticos, y como juego de carreras, disparos o de infiltración nunca llega al nivel de sus modelos. De él esperábamos que hubiese inventado algo, como inventó en su día Assassin's Creed o Far Cry, pero se queda como un compendio de los mejores momentos de cada uno de ellos.

Whatever Ubisoft decides to do with a sequel, one thing is apparent: Watch Dogs is a great start to what will almost certainly become a beloved franchise, given time. It capably imagines an alarming near future and wraps that in solid gameplay mechanics that give even the Grand Theft Auto games a run for their money. I'll be interested to see what happens next. I'm pretty sure Ubisoft already knew that, though, because I had my Kinect camera enabled the entire time I played…

Con esta versión de Watch Dogs para Wii U nos encontramos ante el mismo juego que salió en Xbox 360 y PS3 hace seis meses, en contenidos, jugabilidad y aspecto gráfico, no habiendo aprovechado para nada el hardware de la consola, ni la ocasión para incluir los contenidos descargables en forma de compensación para los usuarios de la consola de Nintendo. El juego sigue siendo igual de entretenido y completo, y si además del resto de maravillas exclusivas que se han lanzado este año para la consola, necesitas algo distinto y te apetece un sandbox entretenido y lleno de contenidos, Watch Dogs es una buena opción, aunque podía haber sido una versión mejor más cuidada y completa.

Is the addition of the GamePad enough say the six-month wait was justified? Probably not, even when you factor in off-screen play (which, quite frankly, just feels cramped). And if you were hoping that Watch Dogs on the Wii U had resolved the game's fundamental problems, again, you'll be disappointed. If, however, you haven't played it yet, and you want to experience the game without sky-high expectations and a ridiculous amount of ad-driven hype, then now might be the time to dip your toe in the water.

Dennoch kann man dem Open-World-Abenteuer in Chicago den Spaß nicht absprechen. In einem Moment fühlt es sich an wie Assassin’s Creed, dann wieder wie Saints Row oder Sleeping Dogs. Kurz darauf springt das Abenteuer auf den Splinter-Cell-Zug, nur um das Ganze mit einem Schuss Batman zu garnieren und sich viele Anleihen bei GTA zu holen. Und das einzige Element, mit dem Watch Dogs in der Welt der offenen Welten ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal hätte, das Hacken, wird in den meisten Fällen nur oberflächlich genutzt, anstatt z.B. der Gesellschaft des Überwachungsstaates einen Spiegel vorzuhalten. Sporadisch geht man zwar in die richtige Richtung, aber am Ende verlaufen die meisten Fäden im Sande. Und genau hier liegt das größte Problem: Anstatt als erstes Spiel mit offener Welt auf den Highend-Systemen die Marschrichtung vorzugeben, wird Watch Dogs zu einem von Anfang bis Ende unterhaltenden Mitläufer.

Dennoch kann man dem Open-World-Abenteuer in Chicago den Spaß nicht absprechen. In einem Moment fühlt es sich an wie Assassin’s Creed, dann wieder wie Saints Row oder Sleeping Dogs. Kurz darauf springt das Abenteuer auf den Splinter-Cell-Zug, nur um das Ganze mit einem Schuss Batman zu garnieren und sich viele Anleihen bei GTA zu holen. Und das einzige Element, mit dem Watch Dogs in der Welt der offenen Welten ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal hätte, das Hacken, wird in den meisten Fällen nur oberflächlich genutzt, anstatt z.B. der Gesellschaft des Überwachungsstaates einen Spiegel vorzuhalten. Sporadisch geht man zwar in die richtige Richtung, aber am Ende verlaufen die meisten Fäden im Sande. Und genau hier liegt das größte Problem: Anstatt als erstes Spiel mit offener Welt auf den Highend-Systemen die Marschrichtung vorzugeben, wird Watch Dogs zu einem von Anfang bis Ende unterhaltenden Mitläufer.

Wii UNintendoWorldReport (Dec 09, 2014)
Watch_Dogs on Wii U is a tricky one. The game isn't bad, far from it even, but the six month wait is a bitter pill to shallow. Not much has been added to make it truly different from other systems and the overall presentation could have been slightly better. The large amount of missions, the huge world to traverse and additional functions give this game a solid running time of 20 hours. There are problems here and there, but if you decide to pick it up, you can have potentially fun with it. If you have another console, however, you might Watch_Dogs on that platform instead. The online support of this title on the Wii U seems underwhelming and Ubisoft has no plans to offer the newer DLC packs to Nintendo fans. At the very least, it did come out, and I suppose that is something.

Il voto finale assegnato a questa versione WiiU di Watch Dogs rappresenta un'ecumenica media matematica tra la sufficienza stiracchiata che avrebbe meritato la conversione e l'otto pieno che il titolo sa meritarsi per il gameplay ricco e sfaccettato, il buon multiplayer e la consistente offerta ludica. A questo bisogna aggiungere la quasi unicità all'interno della libreria dell'ammiraglia Nintendo: chi non avesse modo di giocarci altrove, dovrebbe comunque fare un pensierino alle avventure di Aiden Pearce. Discorso diverso per chi ha affiancato un'altra macchina a WiiU: non c'è motivo di optare per questa versione piuttosto che per una delle altre, peraltro reperibili a prezzi inferiori.

Watch Dogs doesn't have that promising kernel. It certainly entertains, but mostly through borrowed concepts, and the central notion that could have made it stand out - the hacking - is the most undercooked of all. It doesn't get anything horribly wrong, but nor does it excel at any of the genre beats it so faithfully bangs out. It's good, and yet that always feels like a criticism when a game comes weighed down by this much hype. You won't regret the time you spend in Aiden Pearce's world, but nor will it be saved as a precious memory when you reboot.

Am Ende sind es solche Momente, für die man Watch Dogs mag, ein so ambitioniertes Spiel, das trotz aller Mühe nie vollends da ankommt, wohin es wollte. Das seinen gut gestalteten Missionen nur wenige komplett verachtenswerte untermischt und sonst kaum etwas halsbrecherisch falsch macht. Eines, das aber auch zu bequem ist, zu Beginn der neuen Generation nur einen müden Finger zu rühren und zu zeigen: Dort, dort geht es lang mit offenen Welten. Was Ubisoft hier mit millionenschwer beladenem Buckel präsentiert, ist mehr ein Best-of thematisch verwandter Spiele, eine über alle Maßen unterhaltsame, hochwertig produzierte, quer durch die letzten Jahre „Open-World" pflügende Diashow. Ich kann nicht behaupten, dabei nicht ein paar Mal sehr zufrieden und glücklich geseufzt zu haben. Doch manchmal ist das eben nicht genug.

WindowsGame Watcher (May 27, 2014)
Although reluctant to make comparisons with the Grand Theft Auto series, the fact that Watch Dogs doesn’t quite match the same free roaming open-world standard quickly becomes an obvious elephant in the room. Ubisoft Montreal should certainly be applauded for trying something new within the bounds of the genre - hacking in Watch Dogs is genuinely innovative, despite the threat of gimmickry - however, Watch Dogs has ultimately failed to live up to its hype. It’s good, but it could, and probably should, have been great. The underlying irony of Watch Dogs is the fact that the game itself suffers a bit too much from an identity crisis.

La storia c'insegna che in passato il publisher francese si è già reso autore di porting tutt'altro che entusiasmanti o comunque non in grado di sfruttare le reali capacità del PC come macchina da gioco. E l'impressione è che la storia sia ripetuta ancora una volta.

WindowsGames.cz (May 31, 2014)
Watch Dogs není revoluce, ale solidní start nové série určitě ano. PC verze má u kotníku přivázaný pořádně těžký kámen v podobě technických problémů, nad nimiž se sice s ohledem na rozsah hry dá přimhouřit oko, ale jen do určité míry. Čeho je moc, toho je zkrátka příliš. Přesto si Watch Dogs nezaslouží poslat do horoucích pekel, protože baví a jakkoli většinu věcí nedělá na 100 %, nedá se říct, že by krom příběhu v něčem vysloveně selhala.

WindowsPCGamesN (Jun 04, 2014)
Watch Dogs is a monster, in size and ambition. But it’s Frankenstein’s monster, with bits and pieces from other Ubisoft properties - Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Splinter Cell - stitched together with elements of the open-world Godfather, Grand Theft Auto. Beneath the huge playground, with its dramatic action sequences set across multiple city blocks and plethora of side content, is a game that’s emblematic of the the open world genre’s failings as well as its strengths. It is Open World: The Game, and as such, struggles to find an identity of its own beyond its entertaining hacking hook and the inspired multiplayer. But those two elements make up a sizeable portion of the game. There are moments of genuine brilliance buried in the game that elevates it above mediocrity, but its reliance on increasingly tired design does it a disservice.

WindowsNivelul2 (Jun 10, 2014)
Watch Dogs (stilizat Watch_Dogs), un IP Ubisoft nou, îndrăzneţ şi plin de idei interesante, eşuează la capitolul realizare tehnică şi -- din nefericire -- se îneacă în momentele cele mai importante. Totuşi, acest lucru nu înseamnă că trebuie evitat. Din multe puncte de vedere, Watch_Dogs este un titlu care merită jucat şi asimilat, nu pentru ce promitea să fie la E3, ci pentru forma lui finală -- de preferat pe PS4 sau Xbox One, dacă vă deranjează să pândiți patch-uri.

Se da un lato è difficile biasimare Ubisoft per non aver investito grandi risorse nella conversione di Watch Dogs per una console che tradizionalmente conta su un pubblico indifferente ai titoli di terze parti, d'altro canto dispiace constatare come - per l'ennesima volta - Wii U finisca per essere la soluzione meno felice per un prodotto multipiattaforma. Un modesto sfruttamento del GamePad non compensa infatti una performance tecnica per alcuni aspetti persino inferiore alle console di vecchia generazione e un'offerta ludica che non aggiunge nulla a un prodotto uscito sei mesi fa. Considerando quanti pochi titoli del genere esistano su Wii U, l'acquisto di Watch Dogs può essere consigliato solo a chi è in possesso esclusivamente della console Nintendo, mentre tutti gli altri farebbero meglio a rivolgersi altrove.

Wii UJeuxActu (Nov 29, 2014)
On ne sait vraiment pas pourquoi Ubisoft a pris autant de temps pour nous proposer cette version Wii U de Watch Dogs, surtout quand on sait qu'elle ne diffère guère des versions PS3 et Xbox 360, mais celle-ci arrive 6 mois après la guerre. Une attente longue et au final vaine tant les carences techniques nous explosent à la figure comme un bouton d'acné bien blanc qu'on vient d'éclater. Textures SD dégueulasses, aliasing grossier, distance d'affichage de grand myope, poping de ouf malade, modélisation des PNJ ultra sommaire, éclairage quasi inexistant et framerate à la dérive, Watch Dogs n'est véritablement pas fait pour la console de Nintendo. Ceux qui arriveront à passer outre l'aspect technique pourront peut-être trouver en lui une sympathique alternative à GTA 5 puisque le chef d'oeuvre de Rockstar Games ne sortira jamais sur la machine de Nintendo. Mais bon, si vous voulez vraiment jouir de l'expérience WD, payez-vous une PS4 ou une Xbox One, la pilule passera mieux.

So that’s that. Watch Dogs. Ubisoft’s disappointment of the decade. For a game that’s been delayed 8 months, I can’t imagine what it looked like when they made that decision. Regardless, I shall eat my own words if and when Ubisoft fixes all these issues and provides a seamless game, as they advertised. Was it right of me to direct my speech at the game’s mistakes instead of the good things? Considering the title itself and all the hype behind it, absolutely and, in my honest opinion, the decision of spending money for a next-gen experience that’s more backwards than GTA V is entirely up to the reader. In short, it’s an amusing and innovative game, but certainly not worth the AAA branding.

Wii UNintendo Life (Nov 28, 2014)
Watch Dogs is a bold, ambitious game that delivers well in some areas, though nevertheless feels like an iteration away from reaching its potential; the inevitable Watch Dogs 2 could be one to keep an eye on. It's a sizeable, enjoyable game, but one that is let down on the Wii U by poor optimisation and disappointing performance; the frame-rate is inconsistent but tolerable while on foot, but often struggles badly when driving. It's possible to play Watch Dogs and work through these bottlenecks, but that shouldn't be expected of the gamer in a big-budget, pricey retail experience. If the Wii U is your only console, then Watch Dogs is certainly worth consideration to fill that sizeable open-world gap in your current gaming library. If you have other options, however, it's far tougher to recommend.

Wii UFNintendo (Nov 26, 2014)
Olhar para a versão Wii U de Watch Dogs neste final de ano, depois de não ter correspondido às elevadas expectativas no seu lançamento em Maio para outras plataformas, permite um julgamento mais frio. Não se compreende que seis meses adicionais não tenham permitido adicionar elementos exclusivos (para além do mapa presente no ecrã do GamePad), nem que não se tenha procurado minimizar algumas das falhas óbvias do jogo. A mistura de acção tradicional com uma abordagem furtiva é uma mais valia no género sandbox, mas o potencial aberto pelo hacking não é de todo atingido. Além disso, esta é uma adaptação sem grande dedicação que só vale pela reduzida concorrência neste segmento na Wii U. Uma despedida inglória dos blockbusters third party da consola da Nintendo.

A conti fatti, quindi, la versione per la console Nintendo di Watch Dogs è la meno riuscita fra quelle disponibili. Date ad Aiden Pearce una possibilità solo se sentite di non poterne fare a meno.

Wii UXGN (Nov 20, 2014)
Als je Watch Dogs al op een ander platform gespeeld hebt, is de overstap naar de Wii U versie dan ook niet de moeite waard. Gamers met enkel een Wii U thuis kunnen nog wel enig plezier beleven als hacker in virtueel Chicago.

WindowsRiot Pixels (Jun 05, 2014)
Когда я пишу эти строки, Watch Dogs уже стала блокбастером — количество разошедшихся копий перевалило за 4 млн. Это — самый быстропродаваемый продукт Ubisoft, обречённый стоять в одном коровнике с Rayman и Assassin’s Creed. Увы, вместо умного технотриллера со свежим взглядом на социальный «стелс», будоражившего воображение в «визионерском» ролике два года назад, рекорды ставит его бледная тень.

Decent, but not great. Watch Dogs is certainly worth playing, but it's not even close to living up to what's been shown off since it was announced.

Xbox OneGiant Bomb (May 27, 2014)
Even though I feel its story is often weak and its action isn't that different from other games in the genre, I still enjoyed my time with Watch Dogs. It turns out that the old stuff still works, and the strong-but-standard mission design kept me entertained, most of the time. It's rough around the edges, though, so if you don't settle for anything less than the best, you'll probably be disappointed.

Dans le genre sandbox virtuel, Watch_Dogs n'a rien d'exceptionnel. Cependant, il a le mérite de proposer un matériau de base assez intéressant, aussi bien dans le background que les possibilités de jeu, pour espérer une éventuelle suite. C'était sans compter sur cette version Wii U, qui ne donne clairement pas envie de voir plus loin. Percluse de défauts techniques en tout genre, elle se paie en plus le luxe de ne pas profiter des capacités du Gamepad (si l'on excepte le fait que le jeu soit moins repoussant dessus ; un comble !). Dans l'état, on a affaire à un GTA-don't like et c'est bien dommage...

Definitely not the worst multiformat port a Nintendo console has had to endure, but the low frame rate and lack of new features makes it almost entirely pointless.
