I was born and raised in London. London was my life, except for a few years when I fled in my early twenties. It’s in my heart, in my soul, it has a lot of problems and it will cost £ 9 per pint, but I love it. Thankfully, the problems that exist are quite different from those found in London in the future. Watch Dogs: Legion.. You see, this is a place where big smoke is likely to come out, but even where all the famous landmarks are proudly standing, as there is a huge open world for driving, running and sneaking around. There is. Yeah, Watch Dogs: Legion is here as the first big guy to try to cross the generational gap. Was it worth the wait?
Let’s publish this before we get started – I loved the world of San Francisco Watch dogs 2 Before that, I had a lot of fun with Chicago-based Shenanigan. Original game.. In fact, I’m a fan of the franchise as a whole and found that the game offers a world that combines fun with less serious landscapes.
At Legion, you’ll notice that you’re slapping in the middle of London, an alternative to dystopia. Holograms, electric cars, and many drones occur regularly in the cityscape. This is a world where the Metropolitan Police had to be disbanded after a mysterious terrorist bombing, and now privatized security forces are in charge of everything – Albion. However, it is this Albion that has a big plan to dominate the city. And you need to stop them.
Kicking things off as you pass through the Capitol’s gut is a well-paced prologue, almost straight torn from the latest Bond movies. Here you will learn that rebellions have died against Albion’s fascist regime, causing horror on the streets of London. DedSec is a group of hacker rebels you recruit to see you participating in a group mission. And some of the big changes in Watch Dogs Legion begin to quickly realize that you’re not just playing as the only hero, but that you can find anyone you like if you can hire them. That is. But you’ll soon get to that gameplay.
The story, mission structure, dialogue, and overall writing found in Legion are all wonderful. The world created by Ubisoft is socially complex, but it’s not as serious as previous games. If you think of it as a movie, you’re moving away from rolling credits asking a million questions. How do all these new hires off the street know how to hack so well? What about everyone like this amazing shot and combat expert? Of course it’s all supposed and you totally agree with it. But what’s really cool is that you get the opportunity to chat on the radio, listen to multiple conversations from strangers you find on the street, or from people participating in side missions. It’s a huge world and allows development teams to build a world with great success.
The gameplay is mostly made up of the usual things that Watch Dogs had previously allowed, and if you’ve played previous games, muscle memory begins right away. You can walk, run, jump and climb like a normal open world third person game. There are also different battles, in the form of shoot and cover gameplay that spans different deadly and non-lethal weapons. Includes pistols, shotguns, and rifles that distribute electrical bolts to combatants. There are also many opportunities to work secretly as you move around the world, sneaking up from pillar to pillar.
Of course, this is Watch Dogs, which means that hacking comes to the fore. This is the most fun part of the game for me. With just a click, you can hack into almost anything with an electric pulse. It’s easy to hack the camera to see the layout of the building, switch buildings instantly, and get different perspectives through the camera. Many drones are flying around. As you level up your reward system, you’ll be able to hijack and control them, opening up the world even further. They can be used to scout areas from the sky, or you can attack enemies with guns as you discover more advanced ones. You can also use the drone to physically hack the network and open doorways. Cargo drones, on the other hand, are large enough to ride, giving you access to hard-to-reach rooftops. But they are not the only friends. Spider bots can be used to crawl ducts on the ground, crawl tight spaces, hack servers, and download important information.
The beauty of Watch Dogs Legion is that you can tackle most of the environment and missions the way you like. If you can withstand the aggro and abundant reinforcements you bring, you can burn all the guns and take out the enemies one by one. But it’s also easy to hack an area with a camera, drone, or spider to get out. Alternatively, you may find yourself trying to sneak through the basement to nail the target. The beauty of the game is that the numerous options available always ensure that the corps is fresh and interesting.
But another way to play things is to blend in with the environment. This is where the real side of changing the game comes to the fore.
Much has been said about the ability to pick and play your favorite people at Watch Dogs Legion. It’s a well-working system, and it’s great to be able to change the hero of the story. It works by giving you the opportunity to recruit someone from the street. Someone who has the potential for recruitment when you scan them on your phone. These may be characters with unique professions, such as special people, spies or hospital surgeons who have informed you that DedSec may be worth hiring for you. To hire them, you need to perform tasks for them, such as hacking an organization or rescuing them from thugs, to see them join the team. It is perfectly possible to gather a large number of operatives that DedSec can choose from. Need someone who can take you to the hospital without any doubt? Or is it an Albion guard who gives access to the beast’s belly? This is a nice, cleverly implemented system, but it means that you may love one character and hate another. I have noticed that I always tend to rely on my favorites. One of them was a surgeon who surprised the enemy by hitting the enemy’s head with a hospital defibrillator.
For this to work, you have the option of turning on the Permades option at the beginning of the game. This is what I highly recommend. It turns out to raise stakes significantly and make every effort to survive certain people across the Legion. In fact, I admit that when I had no choice but to turn off the console, I fell into some troublesome situation and faced a serious problem. If I failed, my beloved surgeon would have been lost forever.
Visually, you can see that Watch Dogs Legion is building a crunched version of London. New buildings, subway stations, geographic fragments can be created, while at the same time having a moment of perfect accuracy in the details of the street. It has all the major icons such as Big Ben, Tower of London and The Shard. It’s great to be able to explore the city in a future upgrade, bright lighting and an active world. It looks good, but it’s a shame that the interior is limited compared to the open world section. For example, the only place you can stand outside the store and enter (outside the mission) to access new cosmetic gear is the pub, which incorporates quick half and arrow games as needed.
The soundtrack is exciting and dramatic throughout, and everything works great. When you find yourself traveling by car, you can listen to a variety of great radio shows, from chat shows to great music. Almost everything from dance to classical to classic three lions. The dubbing is also wonderful, and a wonderful character will appear.
To be honest, the first moment with Watch Dogs Legion Xbox One I wasn’t surprised at all, so I was hoping I could do more. Maybe it was a little too accustomed to the last few games, or I was expecting something else. But the more you notice that you’re wandering around this version of London, the more you’ll love it. It’s a vibrant and exciting open world, full of missions, side missions, recruitment activities, complemented by some decent visuals and great audio work. Over time, I became more and more excited about the opportunities it brought. As a result, we are now well invested in future DLC and multiplayer element promises. I may love London Town because I’m a Londoner, but Watch Dogs Legion helped me confirm that.
I was born and raised in London. London was my life, except for a few years when I fled in my early twenties. It’s in my heart, in my soul, it has a lot of problems and it will cost £ 9 per pint, but I love it. Thankfully, the problems that exist are quite different from those found in the Watch Dogs Legion in London in the future. You see, this is a place where big smoke is likely to come out, but it’s also where all the famous landmarks stand proudly …
