What the fans are saying
"I'm excited for the gameplay and open-world aspects. The story and multiplayer don't interest me as much, but I'm sure that this game will live up to my expectations."
- NinjaFatGuy, Admin on the Watch Dogs Wikia
"Watch Dogs looks like it allows players to subvert the world around them, based on what the player wants to accomplish. It also helps that Ubisoft Montreal has developed the game's hacking mechanics by speaking with world leaders in Anti-Virus technology to make the experience as authentic as possible."
