Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Watch Dogs: Legion's play as anyone mechanic succeeds as more than just a gimmick, but the rest of the game will likely leave you wanting more.

Play As Anyone

The squad formed throughout the game provide a fun twist on the typical Open World formula

Repetitive Missions

Many critics noted that missions begin to feel too same-y as you get deeper into the game

Narrative Cohesion

Some critics felt that the overall story never really came together

A disappointingly tame vision of a near future dystopia, that represents a perfectly competent use of the Ubisoft formula but falters in its attempts to add anything new to it.

Legion offers a refreshing and fun change-up to the Watch Dogs formula that succeeds in letting players forge their own path like never before
