Watch Dogs (stylised as WATCH_DOGS) is the feverishly anticipated and highly ingenious game developed by Ubisoft Montreal, who are best known for their widely and critically acclaimed Far Cry and Assassin’s Creed franchises. Watch Dogs is stylised as an open world action adventure game, and depicts an innovative style of gameplay that revolves around cyber crime, all in a very large scale setting.
The game is set in an alternate reality in the city of Chicago, Illinois, which is one of many cities that features a super computer known as a CtOS – a Central Operating System that controls almost every piece of technology and possesses almost every detail of information on the people within the city. The game revolves around the premise that everything is connected, and that connection is power, which leads us to Watch Dog’s protagonist, or perhaps even its antagonist, Aiden Pierce.
Aiden Pierce is a highly skilled hacker who possesses the ability to hack into any device linked to the CtOS, and then use it as a weapon; gameplay centres on Pierce’s talents to hack into various electronic systems, either to obtain information or control a particular device. The information that Pierce can divulge about a citizen is incredibly detailed, including their health, criminal record, medical history, bank history, and even their probability of violence.
Watch Dogs boasts a perfection fusion of cutting edge technology and innovative, sophisticated game design, resulting in a realistic and living massive open world. This is enhanced by the player’s ability to fully interact with a 3D map of the city, which offers the player the ability to control it, giving the term open world new meaning. Controlling the city can range from manipulating traffic lights, to tapping into the city’s security camera feed, and everything inbetween.
Information warfare is raging, and you as Aiden Pierce may be the only person capable of coercing and controlling every element. Nobody knows who runs the computer that the city depends on, and you must utilise every means at your disposal in order to take down a corrupt system. (Cat Emerson)

This game is awesome, with great graphics and lots to do between main missions. I recommend playing it with a gamepad, like the XBOX 360 wired or wireless controller for PC.
Well nice story great for all kind of players... shooter or stealth races and pursuits are great especially with all the possibilities you have just thx to your smartphone. I would like one like that :) Really enjoying the game fun side missions.
The game is great, but it's not what I expected. Graphics isn't well optimized, storyline is too predictable. All in one, I enjoy playing this game, it has some unique features(hacking, etc.), but everything else is all seen. The rating could be the excellent (5 star) if the graphics and driving were better.
Watch Dogs is a nice game. Ubisoft have a good game with amazing graphics.
