Watch Dogs Is Broken

If you’re one of the many people that have rushed out to buy Watch Dogs than you probably know that there are s ton of problems with the game. I never planned on buying Watch Dogs right now to be completely honest. I had a chance to play my friend’s copy of the game over the family share option on Steam, but I’m not here to talk about how good or bad the game is. I’m here to talk about all of the problems that are present in the game. You need a powerful rig to run Watch Dogs, but many people, including myself, have high end rigs and we can’t run the game over 20fps because it was badly optimized for PC.

If you actually manage to make it into the game without crashing to your desktop or getting a blue screen than you’ll be treated to one of the glitchiest games out right now. This game makes Batman Arkham Origin’s release look stable. 2515731-watch_dogs_mp_decryptionI’ve been running through the street only to fall through the floor. When I looked up I could see the whole city. Do you like running through walls? I was running from the cops and ran right through a building like I was part of the X-men. That might sound cool, but I can assure you that it’s not.

Shortly after I ran through the wall I fell through the floor. I had no choice, but to restart the game because I was just falling forever. Falling through the floor is something that happens very often in this game.

Beware of driving cars because you’ll most likely end up driving right through the ground. My question is simply this… what the fuck was Ubisoft doing all of this time? I love how people are defending this game. They’re saying don’t worry it’ll be patched soon. Is this what gaming has come to? I grew up in a time when games worked perfectly when you purchased them.

They didn’t require a day one patch or future updates to make it work. Watch Dogs isn’t even that fun to play to be completely honest with you. It doesn’t look that good or perform that well. The driving mechanics are shitty and story is just meh so far. I’m really glad I didn’t buy this game, but I do feel sorry for my friend because he can’t play his own game that he went out and brought with his hard earned money.

Do you want to see a funny video? Take a look at this.

That’s just some of the problems that’s present in the game right now. Honestly I would recommend you guys wait before you purchase this game if you haven’t already. Ubisoft should be ashamed of themselves.

I can’t say that this surprises me. Every game that they’ve released in the last two years has required major patching in order for it to work. This is apparently no exception.

  1. i dont get the falling through the floor at anytime all i got even after i updated nvidia driver was still the texture ghosting, i could see leaves and road markings through my coat and through any vehicles.. Fuck Ubisoft

    1. I’m inclined to agree with you. Ubisoft never make a good port to the PC. Look how long it took them to fix Splinter Cell Blacklist.

      I’ve had my vehicle literally go through another vehicle without crashing. I’ll admit that it was cool at first, but it got annoying after a while.

      Lets not even mention the terrible pop ins that plague the PC version of this game.

  2. Y’know… I grabbed this game off steam at Launch (which required uplay =\), and I had no problems getting 30 – 45 FPS on nearly max settings [had to only use the 2gb video memory textures because my card only has 2gb video memory] on my mid-range gaming machine with a GTX 760 and an FX-6300.

    What are you running it on that you can’t bust 20 fps? And how are you falling through the street? o.o

    1. I’m not the only one that’s having these problems. Since I updated my drivers the game has been performing very well for me though. I haven’t had a chance to update the article yet.

      I was previously running it on high and averaging about 20fps. I’m still running it on high after updating my driver and I’m getting about 60fps without using Sli.

      I’ll push my luck later today when I start playing it again. I should be able to run this in Ultra with no problem and hopefully after they patch the game I’ll be able to drive without falling under the city :].

  3. Guess this is why it got delayed. Imagine how bugged it was back when it was originally planned to come out. There was a lot of hype surrounding this so I feel bad for anyone who was excited about the game.

    1. Me too. I feel bad for my friend because he can’t even play it yet. I heard that the console versions are working just fine. It’s the PC users that got the fucked up version. That seems to be a usual thing from Ubisoft though.

  4. This is VERY disappointing. Considering the delays they needed to make sure everything ran smoothly. I’ll have the opportunity to check it out later myself through the Steam family share, like yourself. I’m not looking forward to it as much now after reading this.

    1. I agree. Ubisoft had more than enough time to fix this game. The fact that I can run through the floor is ridiculous. I hope that it works for you. I know the Steam forums are filled with people complaining about different problems.

      Let me know what you think of the game :].
