A french magazine called Jeux Video has released the first ever review for Watch Dogs. You can find the translation below.
Here's the translation thanks to Eymm from Reddit:
Gameplay: 5 stars
Everything works perfectly, the ultra-intuitive hacking allows for exhilarating moments in the game.
Very solid on the technical level, especially in the sensation of life that makes Watch_Dogs great.
Sound: 4 stars
Excellent ambient music and sound effects, but the track selection is a little limited.
Longevity: 5 stars
Because it’s a open world featuring multiplayer, there there’s an extreme amount of interesting things to do.
Gameplay and level design
The life in Chicago
The Story, blah!
The first loading
Watch_Dogs accomplished all the hopes placed on it and delivers a successful new take on open world games. Almost perfect, but with a slight disappointment on the story.
Final Score: 19 out of 20
