Review Roundup: Watch Dogs 2
People were hyped big time for the first Watch Dogs by Ubisoft. It was met with mediocre reception in the press, and the sequel hopes to improve. The consensus right now is that there's a lot more gameplay variety here, improved story and characters, but nothing stopping you from breaking the immersion and playing this like a Grand Theft Auto. Also, there seems to be some technical issues with both performance and multiplayer.
IGN - 6.5 (In Progress)
Dan Stapelton hasn't spent time with multiplayer yet, due to issues causing the game to not run well. But as he waits, he's plowing through the single player and notes that some of the rampages you can go on in the game feels completely at odds with the type of character you play.
Polygon - 8.0 (Provisional)
It seems Polygon is bothered less by the multiplayer woes Phill Kollar argues that improved mechanics and variety make up for the tonal dissonance.
Destructiod - 8.5
Destructiod mentiones the tone of the game as well through the mechanics. Talking about how you really have to want to play non-lethaly, as the game has so many ways of helping you kill people.
Gamespot - Unscored
Peter Brown from Gamespot hasn't scored the game yet, but mentions what he's experienced of the multiplayer in the game shows promise, and may add a whole other level of things to do and experiences to be had.
