I played this on ps4 and it wasn't that great on that so I didn't expect much of the wii u version. Watch dogs was incredibly over hyped and ubisoft yet again failed to deliver they haven't had the best track record lately I hope they put out some games soon that are actually good and maybe ya know working properly on release... that last part is pretty important.
After watching actual footage of the driving sections I hardly feel a 6/10 was justified, considering that was really the only complaint. Especially considering all the other versions had to pause the game to see where you were going, and that's very aggravating in an open world game where you're always going somewhere.
Idk, watch the vid and see for yourself people. Nothing jumps out and screams \"this game is totally a 6/10\" when I watch the gameplay footage of driving sections. If Assassin's Creed Unity, a bungled mess of an excuse for a game, can score a 6/10, I hardly see it fitting for a game that runs relatively well all things considered to get the same score, especially when one considers the Gamepad Advantage.
I see things a little differently. Where others see lack of gamepad support, I see an interactive map on the fly that wasn't available in any of the other versions. I see off TV played that wasn't available for any of the other versions. And I see free multiplayer that wasn't available for any of the other next GEN versions. Where others see a framerate dip as an excuse to skip the game, I watch the video and barely notice a thing.
@Sampras Oh watch Digital Foundry frame rate comparison of the Wiiu version stacked up against the PS4 and the PS3.Then say it just drops 2 FPS,cause i assure you the frame rate of the port is terrible it can't even get a stable 30 fps.
@Sampras It doesn't lose just 2 fps it loses ten or more,it can't even get a stable 30 fps!This is worst version of watch dogs,the PS3 can get a stable 30 fps and that has screen tearing.Don't know what you're talking about it only loses 2 fps.Oh and the gamepad features yo won't shut about,it's a map that's it,to lazy too look at the screen
From reading the review, it seemed to me like the score would have been a 7-8. Unless that frame rate drop is horrendous, I don't feel like anything that was mentioned really justifies the score. That being said, I have watched a few videos of the game, and the driving parts look like they control poorly. I agree that the sequel will probably smooth over any problems the original had (just like with Assassin's Creed) and this will be another solid series. Unfortunately, this version is not going to sell well enough to justify that sequel to come to the Wii U.
@arnoldlayne83 Zombie U Lazy cash in - It was already made for the 360, obviously it had no chance of even selling, so a simple port to Wii U with some admittedly excellent Gamepad features - comes no where near to utilising the Wii U or it's more powerful GPU, it's average fun. Assassin's Creed series - small porting teams, low cost with much less time to work on - again no utilisation of Wii U, average port work. Splinter Cell - another lazy cash in. Watchdogs - cheap and lazy cash in only released for contractual reasons probably.
Watchdogs is another poopoodoodoocacapoopledoople port unfortunately. If Criterion could manage ultra textures, more and higher resolution lighting and higher native resolution in less than four months what the hell have Ubisoft been doing
You look like little kids.... Stop complaining about the mediocre review and start seeing for yourselves... I'll be damned if I let a magazine or a game review site controll my choices... Thats right, the last choice its yours. Stop following to the letter all kinds of review articles and start following your own personal thoughts, this site is meant to guide you, not control you... Im really excited about watch dogs, and even if all sites and magazines gave it a 0/10 rating I will still buy it because i love open-world games and i like the ideia and the hacking mechanic of the game... Just grow
And there are finer details to dig into. Every citizen has a bio, and I found myself obsessively scrutinizing them to help me decide who to recruit. One former cop still had contacts on the police force, which would mean less jail time for my agents. Great! But his bio told me he was an anti-vaxxer. Ew! No. A drunken brawler is an animal rights activist and donates clothing to a queer youth shelter, which is a big yes in my book. A translator only watches \"heartwarming\" films and uploads erotic fan fiction about members DedSec. She's currently a maybe. None of this has anything to do with how these agents operate, it's just fun flavor to get immersed in and give you a little backstory for the members of your team.
Initially, my crew was largely non-lethal types, but it's not long before I start dropping bodies using other characters. I recruit a former MI6 spy to my roster, armed with a silenced pistol and a cool watch gadget that lets him jam enemy weapons. He's a James Bond type who wouldn't give a second thought to headshotting any guards that get in his way. That's just part of the gig. I've got a professional hitman on my squad, too, who I recruited after following him around at night and witnessing him stabbing some unfortunate citizen to death in a park. I even recruited a member of Albion, whose uniform lets me wander around secure buildings without drawing too much attention. She doesn't seem the type to worry too much if someone gets riddled with bullets or dies in an explosion, either. Killing with those agents feels perfectly in character, and then I can swap to someone else if I want to return to non-lethal tactics.
During the day, Watch D.O.G.S. may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students but other students as well. Many school principals have reported that the mere presence of Watch D.O.G.S. dramatically reduces reports of bullying. On the day of their participation, Watch D.O.G.S. are given a brief review of their involvement and they wear an official Watch D.O.G.S. t-shirt and an official visitors sticker identifying them as a safe and important guest!
