Watch Dogs: Legion's bold use of roguelike mechanics in an open-world action game pay off in interesting ways, making this visit to near-future London feel more varied than the previous two games.

Playing as anyone works great in Legion—once you've finally found the right group of anyones.

Legion's near-future London is almost too close for comfort, though the game it hosts is a characterless slog.

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.

10 / 10
When I beat Watchdogs : Legion I was massively impressed by the game, having come off of Watchdogs and Watchdogs 2 my expectations were met and set high, All the characters are definately formed well and I never felt that anything was missed over the storyline. The story itself is highly engaging, always wanting me to play more. Ubisoft's recreation of London is mind blowingly
83 / 100
So here we are again. Another Watch Dogs game. After the big letdown of the first game, then the second not being a favorite for me, this game gave me some pretty good fun. Bugs are there Clunky running and hacking like usual but if you can get past driving and other tiny issues that are apparent since the second game you'll like it. The story was pretty good, but there isnt
0.8 / 10.0
This game is honestly worse than Fallout 76 at launch, it is a glitchy mess. Every five minutes, it crashes, every gunshot, there is a crash, every car ride, it lags an unholy amount, even on the lowest settings. This game is honestly a mess. The thing is, I think this could be a very fun game, but sadly, I've only managed to barely complete two missions because of how many
The game is fun, when you ACTUALLY get to play it. For xbox one at least, it crashes more than someone drunk and blind driving around in gta. It's insane, boot up the game, crashes in 5min. Try to switch characters 2 times, crashes. Go to your team to edit load out, crash. Look at your phone to leave a review on this game, crash. They should do this crazy new thing like maaaybe
