‘Watch Dogs 2’ thrills beyond ‘GTA’

Share this story:

‘Watch Dogs 2’ is a video game that was released in 2016. It is an open world action- adventure game that was made by Ubisoft. It is a sequel to the game ‘Watch Dogs’. It is on Xbox 1, Playstation 4 and PC. It is very similar to “Grand Theft Auto”.

 You play as a man named Marcus Holloway who is a hacker from Oakland. He is recruited by Deadsec, an activist hacker group, kinda like Anonymous. Your goal is to try to take down the advanced surveillance system in the Bay Area. It is divided into four parts: San Francisco, Oakland, Marin and Silicon Valley. You can steal cars and shoot guns like in ‘Grand Theft Auto’.

You can use the characters cell phone to hack things in the environment. Some examples of the things you can hack are surveillance cameras, motorized gates, controlling cars remotely and hacking peoples bank accounts. You can also deploy drones that allow you to fly around outside of Marcus’ body and spy on enemies. Some pros about this game is that it is much better gameplay than ‘GTA’. You can do more stuff and it’s more fun.

It’s also cool that it takes place in the Bay Area so you can drive around your own city causing havoc. The story isn’t that good, I think ‘GTA 5’ has a better story. Also, they don’t accurately display the map, in the game Oakland isn’t even that big and they don’t even have Berkeley or Richmond. But overall it’s a good game because it’s a fun way to pass time. If you like ‘Grand Theft Auto’ you will like this game even more.
