EDITOR’S NOTE: This review score is provisional at this stage. This is due to the fact that we haven’t had enough time with the seamless multiplayer in Watch Dogs 2. The score will be updated to reflect our final experience once the seamless multiplayer is back online.
The original Watch Dogs was seen as the poster child for the PS4 and Xbox One upon release. For many years until release, with each passing trailer, our hopes and dreams for the original sky-rocketed. Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent at release, was a shell of what we expected, with many people including myself let down with the lack of hacking options and variety in gameplay. Fast forward three years, Watch Dogs 2 writes all these wrongs, providing extremely well-balanced gameplay, which oozes personality from the get-go.
Straight off the bat, Watch Dogs 2 provides players with a cast of characters that young gamers can relate to. It begins with Marcus Holloway (the main character), joining the legendary fictional hacking group, Deadsec. The main cast of four including Marcus, Wrench, Sitara and Josh are all relatable and interesting characters, are all incredibly unique and hilarious in their own way.
