GAME REVIEW: WATCH DOGS (PS4/XONE/WIIU/PS3/360/PC)

OUT NOW

This is a bit like Ubisoft’s inaugural Assassin’s Creed game, a fantastic first effort, which will undoubtedly grow the series into a flourishing franchise.

Offering a gripping open world experience – as you star as brilliant hacker Aiden Pearce in a technologically controlled city – this is a genuinely astonishing next-gen game at times, only hampered by tedious car chases and a few minor niggles.

But the hacking abilities and general all-round experience gives this dog some serious bite.

Rating: 4/5
