Watch Dogs online is getting mixed opinions in reviews so am wondering what people think of the online of this game.

 

Overall I like it and like how other people can just enter your world and hack you and stuff around you. It's not all the time and it's alright.

I never go on Mobile and Free Roam but Racing is okay and Decryption is great when you get a full server.

I like how the hacking other players and tailing exists, most the time I don't even know people are following me when tailing and that's cool.

I'm a big fan of watch dogs. Being a dark souls fan I love being able to invade people. The tailing mode is pretty cool, but hacking is easily my favorite. I dont know if I prefer not being caught or being profiled and then having to escape better. Very different multiplayer then most games... and I like that.

I understand that this is a first in this new ip so I'm looking forward to seeing how they will improve in the future with this franchise because we know they're going to do more. For the first game, I've enjoyed it tremendously, Ubisoft got a lot of things right and not many things wrong. I do admit, it sucks being invaded just before you're off to do a mission and having to go across the map to stop it like DedSec_NL said.

I honestly hate the online. Free roam is horrible, you can't kill other players but you can blow up their cars and prevent them from getting up, which is twice as annoying in reality, since you can't stop them by killing them.

 

Invading is a good concept on paper but it's very lackluster. There is no uniqueness to it, it is the same thing about each time and can be incredibly annoying when I am trying to go to the store and I can't because I am getting hacked. 

 

I was so disappointed by the online. If they made it so you could play poker, do drinking games, play darts, etc. in the online, it would be so much fun. You can't however. In fact, your friends can't even see what your guy looks like! There is no customization in the long run. You get generic cars and you play generic game modes.

 

The game is old-gen, doesn't deserve to be called a next-gen game, and isn't going to compete at all once GTA V comes out for ps4.

 

Not to bash on the game, it's fun, but my expectations were a little to high for me to enjoy it anymore. To be fair, this is the one game that I had full rights to have high expectations for, especially when games like GTA V raised the stakes.

 

My guess is Ubisoft didn't expect a GTA V for next-gen, and as such, figured people would enjoy watch dogs or a long, long time because they have no other options. My guess is Rockstar waited to see how watch dogs turned out before they even decided to announce GTA V for next gen. So in a way, Watch Dogs being an "ok" game allowed for GTA V to come to next-gens.

 

To all of you who actually love the multiplayer, I envy you :P I wish this was a game I could seriously get into. If Ubisoft did justice by the game and did some overhauling of the multiplayer, i'd love that!

the couple of big issues I have with Watch Dogs...

1.) It doesn't feel next gen, this feels like a game meant for the Xbox 360 and PS3 that made it to the gate late so they spit shined it and released it as if it was always suppose to be a next gen game.

2.) The one button hacking is so boring I literally lost all ambition to complete the game.  I would have loved to the see something similar to the Assassin's Creed IV hacking minigames.

 

I am sure there will be some who will love the game, but I just couldn't get into it...maybe had I not played Infamous Second Son before Watch Dogs I wouldn't have know there was so much better out there.

I never really use WD online. When I got invaded it was really annoying. At least in a game like Dark Souls 2 the dude needs to come out and battle you. In WD he can glitch on top of a building and just sit their while you run around.
