Don't listen to the haters!
17 December 2015 | by darkphoenix-83164See all my reviews

Sure this game was over-hyped and it's far from perfect, but it is undeniably fun. The hacking is something new and interesting. Chicago is a great setting and the soundtrack kicks ass! I have no idea why nobody likes Aiden, I found him quite intriguing, the whole renegade without fear vibe is always fascinating. The stealth sections were decent and the hacking puzzles were adequately challenging, including for the collectibles. The only downside are the high speed car chases that were infuriating and are exactly the reason I stay clear of GTA games. The game didn't need such frustrations to weigh it down. All in all a great game with some minor flaws, but hardly anything that should keep you from trying it out.
