Great City, Weak Gameplay, Unfinished Systems
29 October 2020 | by jonny-ehleiterSee all my reviews

Overall this is a solid Watch Dogs Games. However, the Missions are repetitive and the main villains are a bit bland. There is no character customization, besides of outfits, at all. I would love to change hair or something on my chosen characters. The biggest achievement is also the biggest issue in this game: You can recruit anyone in your team and all of them have some kind of background story. It is a great system, but it really lacks depth: You could build a whole Clone Army with the same face, only the abilities change - and this is the main aspect to choose people. However, you can also stick to one character if you want - but besides clothing you can not change a thing. So the biggest issue? You can not identify with "your" character. It is disposable and you just jump to the next one. You will not get attached at all. There is no personal history or story. All the gathering stuff is fun at first, and very similar to "The Division 2", but do not expect it to be as good as in the other game. You get text files, audio files and rare old things you can gather. Oh and some masks. Overall, even though you can get outfits and masks en masse in the game itself, it is clear that the best looking items with the best textures comes directly through the Item Shop - you can buy some ingame money, helper to show all locations of collectibles and complete unique outfits. I have to admit, I am only 30 Hours in, but I still try to find an outfit ingame - let´s hope it is not only available through cash shops items. There is btw also no way to earn any Shop Items with playing the game. Not even a gambling system or so.

And doing the missions? There are 3 ways: 1. You just shoot through 2. You sneak around and subdue anyone by yourself or with the help of traps. 3. You spider your way through the mission (though have to admit you can not do all with the spider).

One more thing about collectibles: Do not expect that you can listen to an audio file while walking. The System needs you to stay in the menu and on that specific file to play.

And no matter when and where you go, every place is full of people. At night 3am in a small dark walkway? No worries, you are not alone and 30 people are all around you.

The ingame map is ok, but also needs polish, POI´s just vanish if you are to far away and if you are to much zoomed in it gets angled to visualize a 3D Map. Needs getting used to, but needs some polish.

Overall: London looks great, systems are not polished, customization options are missing, no attachment to your played character, Missions are similar and repeating after you have done the first few and only the story behind it is different.

I only give 7 Stars, for the City itself and the character system they tried to build. This game is more a concept art, but sadly not finished and needs so much more finetuning. 6 Months more for these things and it should for sure get a 8 or 9 Star.
