That said, it took me a little while to warm up to this sequel. I immediately realized the game was structured somewhat differently than the first and noticed the hack upgrade tree was missing some of my most beloved hacks (such as the aforementioned “raising the drawbridge” hack). Of more concern was that I wasn’t feeling the story in the early hours of Watch Dogs 2. I know a lot of people slammed the original’s story, but I found its plot of the kidnapped sister-in-peril to be somewhat compelling and a reason for me to pick up the game day after day.
Now, after dozens of hours of play, I can say I am as obsessed with this new game as I was with the last, and I see the new one as an improvement. San Francisco is a gorgeous sandbox, the play mechanics are well designed, and I’ve come to love the band of hacker misfits headed by Marcus. The biggest change from the original is the use of the RC Jumper and the flying drone. In the original, you were always sort of pushed toward inevitable gunplay, even though you could use hacking at the outset to thin out your opponents considerably without gunplay. In the new one, you don’t have to use guns at all; you can use the jumper and drone to do nearly all of the work while using stealth. Both units control great. (And big tip: Buy the flying drone and acquire the RC Jumper jump upgrade as soon as you can!)
Anyway, lots to love about this game. Nothing really to hate. Go out and buy it.
The developers listened to our complaints, and they changed all that.
This game is extremely lighthearted, its bright and colorful, not nearly as gritty and dark, and the protagonist is actually likable (I liked Aiden, but wanted more from him. He was drier than my knuckles after vaping for a week.)
The new features and the seamless multiplayer make this game feel new and fresh, but still familiar. I love all of the side mission content. It's endless. I've barely touched the main story at all and I've put in about 40 hours into it.
There's a ton of unlockable content, vehicles to buy, weapons to buy and beautiful scenery to look at! Graphics are great too.
If you're looking for a huge massive open world game, grab this. If you're a fan of the first game, this one is a no brainer! If you didn't like the first one, for any reason, check this out - Ubisoft fixed just about all the cons from the first game!
Pros: While the characters are a bit annoying, they are far more likable than the first games protagonist Aiden Pearce.
The gameplay is by far more fun, and there's just more to do in terms of side activities.
San Francisco is a far more pleasing city too look at compaired to the first games location Chicago.
Cons: The story is almost nonexistent.
The difficulty curve is not there until the last few missions then it jumps up like crazy.
Over all not bad... not great, but not bad.
