Review: Watch Dogs: Legion – Hardcore Gamer

Watch Dogs: Legion aims to be a truly ambitious entry in the series with its Legion system, but to paraphrase Ian Malcolm, the developers were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should. Whatever unique perks the system provides are undermined by how it results in tedious and repetitive missions, flat characters with no real personalities, and weak story moments, not helped by a particularly bad plot. The potential is there for something great, even with the standard Ubisoft action/adventure base to build on, but even if the end result is arguably competent overall, there’s way too little here to get invested in. Watch Dogs: Legion is a bold move with a few highlights here and there, but still a disappointment that will have you going back to Watch Dogs 2 instead.
