    It's not the sort of game I'd usually consider playing or buying but I got it for free with a new graphics card.  Didn't think I'd be interested but I tried it out, took a while to get into it and now I can't put it down.
     
    Graphics quality depends on your platform, on my husband's brand new gaming PC it's awesome.  Playstation/XBOX won't get the same quality.

    Example of high quality Watch Dogs graphics.  This is the sort of quality my husband gets (not me on my 2 year old laptop unfortunately).  Do you think this looks rubbish?

    Playing this on my PS4, awesome game, graphics look very good to me, but can still tell in places its not quite a next gen game though.. but still gets a 8/10 from me.

    As I said, The EA video showed wonderful graphics but upon release they reduced them saying that they wanted to appeal to everyone. Ubisoft is a awful company and they've got very bad rep for watchdogs now, You can check the gaming sites, They got hammered for this poor release.

    Ubisoft paired up with sega and gave me universe at war: earth assault, but the blasted thing doesnt work on any of my computers now a days.

    Techen that's the highest tech Eheim filter I've ever seen ;)
     
    It turns out hubby was running the game modded to restore the original graphics quality.  Without the mod it doesn't look so flashy.
