Watch Dogs Xbox One: The First Fifteen Minutes

Watch Dogs Xbox One: The First Fifteen Minutes

Hacker Aiden Pierce is out for revenge. Here's the first fifteen minutes of his quest.

Still on the fence after reading our review of Watch Dogs? Jaz gave the game a perfect 5 out of 5 stars because he just absolutely loved it. Some thought that score was too high, but the heart wants what the heart wants.

"Watch_Dogs is a landmark, benchmark, must-buy game. It's a challenging, rewarding, adrenaline pumping, utterly compelling spectacle that absolutely delivers on the sandbox premise by giving you a really interesting set of tools that you can use in whatever way you see fit to solve inventive, creative and exciting missions and objectives," Jaz said in the review. "This is the next generation I've been looking for."

I personally wasn't as taken, but I still enjoyed the game a great deal.

"Watch Dogs and other open-world titles like GTAV creak under the weight of giving the player so many things to do, which can come at the expense of focus," I wrote. "Sometimes, I'd just open the map in Watch Dogs and marvel at all of the different Check-Ins, Digital Trips, City Games, Fixer Contracts, Gang Hideouts, Investigations, and AR Phone Games available; other times just seeing it all would tire me out. Watch Dogs reminds me of the first Assassin's Creed; an impressive piece of work with a few problems and a host of potential ahead of it. The jump from Assassin's Creed to Assassin's Creed II was nothing short of astounding and I'm hoping the jump from Watch Dogs to Watch Dogs II is just as good. Until then, Watch Dogs is still worth a purchase."

Either way, the video above is intended to help you make your own decision on the title. It features the first fifteen minutes of Watch Dogs' Xbox One version, showing off the tutorial prologue and some of the stealth gameplay. Hope it helps you make a choice either way, as the game seems like it can be pretty polarizing.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
