Since the announcement in 2012 Watchdogs stood up lists of many gamers. Ubisoft seemed to have open world game. Topper in a house When the game last week appeared in the shops that appeared to be something about it. The game suffered from flaws and the AI ​​in the game world reacted too often implausible, so the setting lost some of its power. Nevertheless Watchdogs earned respectable ratings, and we rewarded the PlayStation 4 version of the game with four stars. At that time it was the only version that we could test. However, since the release we were able to work with the PC version of Watchdogs, and now we have tested that version was high time for a video review, which admittedly we discuss some general issues, but especially in going to the PC version of the game.

If the past few weeks forums and review responses to reading, knew that the PC version suffers from some problems, and we encounter it in part. If not, we managed to get out of the game some hitches even with low graphics settings and the latest drivers for the Nvidia GTX 780 TI which we have played the game the longest. Reason? According to the makers are having problems because Watchdogs 3GB vram can use. As an additional test:. Too Nvidia GTX Titan, which has 6GB vram who hitches exhibits And, to top it all off: R9 290x AMD also showed the same problems. The control also does not look too good. On the PlayStation 4, we understand the criticisms, because we were able to get used to the way you walk there pretty quickly and, above all, the way forward with cars. That was on the PC, however, different. The camera often does not run along and partly because you often bang on various elements in the environment. It also ensures that the PC version of the least well playable version of all.

Furthermore, the pluses and minuses as mentioned last week in the written review also applies to the PC version. So the PC version has some additional disadvantages, while Ubisoft has hardly anything extra from the greater potential of the platform. The claim that the game on the PC sometimes feels like a console game, which we encountered in the comments a number of times, we can not deny. This also makes sure the PC version of Watchdogs not the version that we would prefer for the game. Should you leave this game? When a PC gamer Perhaps, but then you miss something. Who can turn back the irritation points namely still maintains a fine, extensive game over, which would also be a franchise in which the quality of the games after the first part is only increasing the starting point.

Test system:
Processor: Intel Core i7 3960X
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth X79
Memory: Kingston 8GB 1600MHz Quad Channel
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti / Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan / AMD R9 290x
