Watch Dogs User Reviews

Set in Chicago, where a central network of computers connects everyone and everything, Watch_Dogs explores the impact of technology within our society. Using the city as your weapon, you will embark on a personal mission to inflict your own brand of justice.

Chicago's overarching network is known as the Central Operating System (ctOS), and it controls almost all of the city's technology and information - including key data on all of the city's residents.

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. While seeking justice for those events, you'll monitor and hack those around you by manipulating the ctOS from the palm of your hand. You'll access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy... and more.

Trivia

A Hollywood movie starring Mark Wahlberg is in production for the adaption of this game.

The dead body in the lighthouse you will find completing the Serial Killer side mission is a reference to the TV show Dexter.

After completing the final mission, Blume Corporation announces ctOS 2.0, hinting a possible sequel.

In a recent interview with Ubisoft Creative Director Justin Morin, he revealed that Aiden's character was created based on a person who had saved him from a robbery in his hometown of Chicago. When Morin asked the man his name, he replied "Archer." This created Aiden's name. A was for Archer and Pearce represented an arrow piercing a target.

Quotes

[Aiden Pearce] Haven't you heard? I'm the vigilante. I clean up mess like you.

[Jordi Chin] There was a survivor at the stadium.[Aiden Pearce] How did that happen? [Jordi Chin] Well I guess he didn't die.

Easter Eggs

Aiden can hack the electronic roadside signs scattered around Chicago in Watch Dogs and produce messages based on internet and popular culture memes. Whenever Aiden hacks a sign, a random meme is chosen from among dozens of preset options. Once a sign is hacked, it remains so until another sign is hacked. Only one sign may be hacked at any one time. Hackable signs are scattered all over Chicago. Players who want to check out a large number of messages in a short time can do so by visiting The Loop and alternating between the two signs positioned on opposite sides of the highway.
