The main plot of the game revolves around the exploration of Chicago, where the Watch Dogs video game is set to be set. The hero of the game is a young hacker who goes undercover in the London CCTV department as a recluse, going under the name "Jack". During his mission, he must infiltrate the facility, rescue the kidnapped CEO of the company and prevent the planned explosion that will kill thousands of civilians. Apart from the main storyline, there are several side missions and hidden objects sections which can be played, each with their own objectives. Some of these missions include searching a warehouse for valuable items, rescuing another character and following a trail of clues to get information about a specific target in the London map.
Although it was not a huge hit upon its release, Watch Dogs has been one of the top-selling games on the Wii platform, selling over one million copies worldwide. The game uses the Wii remote and nunchuck controller well, which makes using the Wii Sports Resort all the more enjoyable. The story is set in London, where the second mission takes the players to the famous London tower, which serves as the main hub of the story. The game revolves around a group of hackers who want to obtain and read important data from the cyber servers at the center, but they soon find out that it was already compromised.
The story is excellent and the audio and visuals are top notch. The first game saw lots of improvements in the story, as we got to learn more about the mysterious hacker group and their motives, which made the whole operation a lot more thrilling. The second game saw improvements in the storyline, as well as new areas to explore, along with the addition of new challenges. The audio and visuals match the quality of the first game, making watching the movie a very nice distraction from the otherwise hectic game-play.
The story continues with the main character of Watch Dogs, an ex-NSA hacker and CIA agent called Dylan Packard. He is the main protagonist in the game, although he is not really sure why he joined the FBI in the first place. The fact that he betrayed the agency leaves the player with a personal vendetta against the bureau, which he wages against his enemies. The game sees him trying to get closer to the target, either by catching up with them or by killing anyone that stands in his way. Unlike most open-world games, you are not forced to go out into the field and take on real-life situations, although you can do so if you want. If you feel like getting into the action, you can always play the 'alone' game, which means you can play through the story in a non-interactive mode.
In the first game, you played as Dylan while he was undercover as a hacker at the NSA. However, the story starts with you as an employee in London, working for a consultancy firm as a part of your job. While there, you also had the chance to obtain a hacking device known as the pursuit, which gave you access to the inner workings of the NSA. From there, you were able to find and record information from the targets of the hacking activities, thus gaining access to information about their identities and even their locations.
Dylan eventually got tired of being paid for hacking and decided to quit his job, but before he could, his superiors at the consultancy firm sent him to an unusual facility called the Eden Ruins. From there, he was able to gather enough data to launch a full scale attack on the NSA. At the same time, he also encountered and fought against a group of terrorists that were after the same information he had. The game involves defending different areas of the Eden Ruins from waves of attackers. You can also buy new weapons and equipment and use them in battle to take down waves of attackers while Dylan fights his way to the core of the facility.
In the second game, Dylan returns to London as the story continues and this time, you are stationed at the British Military base in Egypt. You can continue as a part of the attack or defense of the base and help your comrades fight against waves of attackers. The story continues from there as the game progresses, adding more elements and missions as the game unfolds. In addition, you can continue to play the first game as part of the campaign, or you can continue to enjoy the two PSP Dogs games by playing through the trial versions that act as prologue.
