    Anyways, still sounds like an excellent game!

    Stealth is the superior way to do anything. Car damage models aside, game's looking slick.

    mini rant incoming

    I watched a ton of stream footage over the weekend on this game. It's not perfect, but it's a great looking game. Sacrifices were made in some areas to help others. I watched ps4 gameplay, medium pc setting gameplay and ultra pc setting gameplay. Definitely noticeable differences, especially between the 2 PC examples...night and day.

    But man the comments section of every single video I watched was ridiculous. Nitpick this, nitpick that. This isn't perfect. That is subpar. GTA clone. blah blah blah.

    If you like GTA and you accept the hacking premise. I see no reason why you shouldn't want to try this game. Cast aside whatever concerns you may or may not have about the 'visual downgrade from 2012'. Understand what this game brings to the table. Decide if what it brings is something you'd enjoy. I honestly don't know why people that enjoy the GTA titles, wouldn't want to play this game.

    anyway rant off lol.

    Even it is a GTA clone, I never understand the rants over this game. RD:R was a GTA clone to the bone and it was amazing, and better than the GTA IV. I can't wait for tomorrow too, this game looks amazing. My only fear it being short than I expected.

    Hate to nitpick but Rockstar have said that RDR took place within the GTA universe so you can't really call it a clone..

    Quick Impressions from me:

    * Graphics really isn't impressive at all, very very disappointing. faces looks last gen.
    *The main character's voice is very annoying.
    *Stealth looks like the game's strongest point, which i like. there are so many ways to infiltrate enemy territory and it's up to you to use your own strategy by combining hacking elements with crafted items ( heavy Splinter Cell influence here ).
    *Driving is neither impressive or awful, it's just suitable for a game that is not built upon it.
    *City doesn't seem that big.
    *Shooting mechanic, movement and camera position again heavily influenced by Splinter Cell. This whole game seems like an open-world Splinter Cell rather thn Assassin's Creed, hence the modern day time. And it's also not similar to GTA. it has it's own identity.
    *Seems like you can't upgrade your current weapon which is disappointing.

    i only played for like 1.5 hours completed 5 missions. More to follow...

    I watched some streams and the graphics did look underwhelming.

    You have to acknowledge the way GTA plays is like its own genre and all these other open worlds like Mafia and many others have been GTA clones. In fact, when open worlds are done differently like Skyrim or Fallout, then they stand out. It does look like Watch Dogs plays a lot like GTA, the jacking and driving. The smart phone hacking is new and only following what is happening on the street. Far Cry 3 kind of went GTA clone and that didn't really grab me. The quests start out new but then they get really repetitive.

    The comment "GTA Clone" really annoys me with regards to this type of open world game, it's like saying every FPS is a Wolfenstein 3D clone, or every beat 'em up a Yie Ar Kung Fu clone!

    I've got this pre-ordered for PS4, but I had a quick go on a "borrowed" PC version which I played on high settings at 1080p with a 360 pad.

    The only thing I found myself not really liking was the driving, it just didn't feel right, but that might be because I'm so used to GTAV driving which I like a lot.

    I can see myself spending a fair chunk of time playing this!

    They do look underwhelming but who cares at this point? either your goona buy the game or not...i dont like the splinter cell comparisons though, never got into those games..much better with it being a GTA clone with hacking

    Wow. No need to be so defensive about it. It was just an observation.

    The graphics do look disappointing and nothing like the trailers and "gameplay footage" we saw in recent months.

    Seems to depend on time of day or weather. Bright sunny days on the ps4 version of WD appear bland. Then switch to rainy nighttime and it looks quite impressive.

    Just play at night lol

    Ubi titles usually go on sale fast. I'll wait until it's 30 or less before I buy this game.

    You cannot base graphics off of a stream whether it be twitch or YouTube. Streaming video is a condensed, uploaded video that has no where near the same graphical presence as the actual gameplay. Plus, it's quite possibly like assassin's creed where it was disappointing until they released updates.

    I'm not going to get worked up about the graphics. Look good, but not great. Gameplay looks awesome though. Really looking forward to trying this out tomorrow.

    Just pre-bought mine. Actually traded in my old defective 360 for it at gamestop. Even trade. Pretty fair, imo. Taking my sons to pick it up at midnight tonight so they can play tomorrow while I'm at work. But when I get home.....it is all mine!

    Well I bought this game last summer, so I'm stuck with it regardless, I will find out tomorrow after work. I also lowered my expectations in the graphics department after the real gameplay videos were released. If the gameplay holds up then it'll be worth it, because I lost the buzz for this game awhile ago.

    After watching the video above, it does suck that the action route appears to be so easy in the game. You'd think in a game that features hacking as the core mechanic would make the direct approach harder for the player.
