Something like 4 years after starting it, I just finished Watch Dogs 2.

Quick bullet points review:

  • the hacker culture of the game is quite cringe worthy
  • BUT some visual elements are really good (I could wear one of these Dedsec t-shirt)
  • San Francisco is gorgeous in the game
  • the parody of Silicon Valley culture is good
  • most missions are doable in full stealth, that’s cool
  • it’s not too long
  • the AI of guards in games is dumb

To paraphrase the game: “I have given you the truth, do what you will”

Fun fact: The hacker group of the game is quite clearly inspired by LulzSec and their wikipedia page is fascinating to read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LulzSec
