Here's the first review for the PC version of Watch Dogs from Strategy Informer:

When Watch Dogs was first teased at E3 2012 it caught everyone’s attention. The level of open-world interaction the game promised, coupled with the real life fear of a surveillance enveloped state was truly promising, and Ubisoft’s fictitious futuristic interpretation of Chicago looked stunning.

Needless to say in the year which followed until now, expectation levels have steadily increased; but such is the way with big budget blockbusters.
