Watch DogThis was the biggest surprise of this year's E3 - a game that seemed to come out of nowhere. Wherever it came from, it looks like it could have Game of the Year written all over it. We still have little idea of the larger story and plot for the game, but in terms of graphical execution, gameplay, and depth, Watch Dog looks to be a winner. The game was demoed at E3 on PC and we can safely say it's the best looking game we've seen on any platform. Watch Dog is pretty much the ultimate open world game, set in Chicago, and we've never seen a city or its inhabitants rendered with such detail, and such amazing physics.
While it obviously isn't going to run like that on every system, it may just be the frame-rate pushing game we've been waiting for.
In terms of gameplay, it's like a combination of Grand Theft Auto, Deus Ex, and a bit of Battlefield 3 thrown in. It's a third person game, but the combat is visceral and nasty, and the collateral damage to the environment is staggeringly detailed. But the real 'killer app' is the premise. As you have access to the vast AI controlling the city, you can hack anything and any one, from controlling cameras or blacking out traffic lights, to learning people's secrets and disovering who they know. Amazingly, there's a whole other layer to the game you can enjoy on iPad, too where you can explore the city map. continue ongoing investigations into people you've hacked, and see how your friends are playing the game.
There's nothing really new in the game, but that fact that it's all been combined together into such a seemless and polished package is breathtaking.
