Apparently that's a common sentiment for the first few hours of the game but that after a while you have better options available to you. My question is, does this game do anything drastically different than the previous?
I haven't finished previous Watch Dogs. Watch Dogs 1 I did quite a bit but I just couldn't care for the story at all, second one was just cringe-inducing in my opinion, even though I love SF I wanted main cast to die a horrible death.
This one basically makes everyone have different smaller pool of abilities so some people are better than others but honestly it doesn't matter that much. I find that having a choice of people is actually quite fun but you have to engage with it, i.e. switch characters not just take your hitman and roll over London. Although you can do that with a Dedsec army on one. Honestly I just find the lack of Ubi-bloat and the story quite engaging so far. Or maybe I was so burnt by the excess of Odyssey that just a normal 20-30 hour open world seems like a win to me.
