While most of the buzz has been about Pokemon Sun & Moon over the last few days, it wasn't the only major game to get a release last week.
Watch Dogs 2 came out and, by all accounts, it's a good improvement from the original.
Once you get past the dated, slightly try-hard lingo, Kirk found that Ubi's tale of cocky hacker Marcus was actually fairly enjoyable. It probably helps that the sequel deliberately tries to take a light-hearted approach, given how much stick the original copped for not doing so and then subsequently having nothing to say about a world of big data, government overreach and internet surveillance.
Also, Aiden Pearce was a dick.
But the original was mechanically sound, as most Ubisoft open world adventures are. And Watch Dogs 2 is no different, although the addition of a remote-controlled drone and car now effectively gives you three characters to mess around with in one. The enemy AI could be a little more advanced, but the inclusion of co-op is good fun.
It's a shame the seamless modes aren't quite working yet, although hopefully those get patched in soon. But what do you think of Watch Dogs 2? Have you been playing? Or have you been waiting for a decent discount - like perhaps the one at Target this week?
