it's more like freedom fighters/republic command with some elements from monster hunter and lost planets if you plan to ignore the whole AI teammate command system and your huge selection of firearms, you're gonna be very frustrated with the game later when they introduce humanoid enemies
in short, ubisoft decided to push watchdogs' release in south east asia back to 27th June to wait for Chinese/Japanese localisation. then for some reason ubisoft assumed everyone in south east asia, including me, who preordered the game on steam wants that localisation and have everyone's copy locked until 27th June.
but the point is I don't need the localisation: I can read English just fine, and seeing Chinese text in a game set in murica kinda takes away the immersion(god I never thought I would use this word).
so like the title says, does this still makes me a pirate scumbag if I pirate a game I brought because I don't want to wait a whole month for a localisation I don't need?
Then 2~3 mission later you can magically sneak into the enemy capitol city, kidnap some scientist dude, blow up the skyscraper, then proceed to destroy some battleship, an oilrig, then send a spaceship full of space marines(no, really) to hijack that satellite missile thing and mount a fullscale invasion/assault against south america with tanks and chopper and aircraft carrier, WTH?
If you can get any cod fan to properly try battlefield they will discover how much better battlefield is. Problem is most of them won't give it a go. Every die hard cod fan that I have got to try battlefield has now become a battlefield fan.
not everyone's into vehicle combat or launching game from a web browser, or maybe it's downright hatred for EA or something, I don't know :/
