Everyone's anxiously anticipating the arrival of Watch Dogs .

After all the hype, will it deliver? Well, according to what may be the very first review of the game, the answer is "yes."

DualShockers cites French publication Jeux Video, which landed the worldwide exclusive first review, and the results were overwhelmingly positive.

As you can see, the game received 19 out of 20 possible stars, and the review said the gameplay and level design is fantastic, and there's a large amount of content. That being said, they're not big fans of the story, which they simply described as "blah!" That's disappointing to me because in all honesty, I thought this game had the potential to deliver a top-notch narrative.

But hey, I'm not passing judgment until I see it. And don't forget that Ubisoft has warned us against fake Watch Dogs reviews.

Hopefully the story isn't as bad as Second Son, but then again I'm not going near this game anyway.

I find it interesting that you won't play this, because aren't you a huge GTA fan?

Nah GTAIV made me leave the series. I don't know why I'm against this game, just one of those gut feelings plus I'm tired of city sandboxes.

@Solid Fantasy: I know right!?

I don't even know who this person is nor why he has a vendetta against World. At least World doesn't have to put any effort whatsoever into proving who the pathetic one here is.

Im 100% sure the story isnt BAD at all its just getting a "blah!" because its nothing we havent seen in a million movies (and games) already…. Bad guys kill protagonists wife/gf/kid/family, protagonist goes after them for revenge" Sure im not gonna get an award for narrative nor am i expecting anything of Shakespearean quality just from that premise alone… the question however is will it be entertaining? answer? most definitely.

Just like sleeping dogs.. its story wasnt anything I have seen in a million movies and games before…. but was i bored/disappointed by it? No. I could say the exact same thing about uncharted. If I want GREAT stories those are usually found in RPGs not action games.

Sleeping Dogs had the benefit of memorable characters, that always helps bolster these generic stories.

I'm looking forward to the reviews. It really comes down to what we see at E3. If Sony's show is as amazing as the roomers indicate I will hold off on Watchdogs. But on the other hand if the E3 line up is a little stale or a long ways off Watchdogs may make it into my library. It looks like the closest thing to Deus Ex that we're going to see for a while.

That's good. I'm hoping this game reviews well and has success. Of course, I rarely hope for anything to flop. Unless you're Lightning Returns.

Lol , felt the same way . Wanted returns to be a big slap to square-enix face so they might finally see we want the old squaresoft back .

I'm hoping that WD is a big hit, I think we need more of this Deus Ex feel of futurism & life-hacking.

I'm hoping its a big hit and i'll wait for a few more reviews before thinking of getting it which i most likely will bc i've already beaten all the PS4 games i have and its not like we have a lot of choices from sandbox games at this point in the consoles life cycle… That being said i'm going crazy waiting for E3

The fact that there's an embargo on reviews for this game tells me everything I need to know about it's quality.

hope some reviews will have detailed gameplay elements analused, as I still don't get how you control the electric devices, especially in races, how will you know soon enough what garage door you can open or what to use to slow down the car behind you
