Summary

Watch Dogs on PS4 executes fresh gameplay ideas with aplomb, marking one of the first games of this new generation of consoles to innovate within its genre. It's a slower, smarter sandbox shooter with an astounding degree of content, but despite resonant themes of technological overbearance, its poorly handled story likely won't grip you.

We like

  • Hacking elevates moment-to-moment gameplay
  • Deep skills and unlocks reward all playstyles
  • Tons of stuff to do

We dislike

  • Broad, poorly served themes
  • Underwhelming graphics
  • Poor licensed soundtrack
