So I'll start of by saying I play a big amount of Ubisoft games and I liked WD1 despite initial controversy, and really enjoyed WD2. I bought Legion or release, but due to the savegame bug I twice lost 2-3h of early game progress. So I shelved it to come back to it later. By then other games like Valhalla came out and the steam winter sale happened etc.. So with most of my backlog done, I come back to this. Im not far in the game, Im at the Bloody Mary mission, but did spend a lot of time getting recruits, tech points and turning boroughs defiant. Reasoning is that I dont want to have finished the game/story and having most abilities/fun characters still being locked.
I don't know exactly how to call it, but the game just feels underwhelming compared to WD2 and I wanted some different point of views/general pointers.
The "play as everyone" might sound cool, but in truth it feels limiting because unlike other (Ubisoft) open world RPG's, your characters dont make any progress. What you recruit is what you get. you get tons of tech points and gadgets, but your character can only equip one effectivly (especially if you're in a forbidden area), even their loadout is mostly set. 45 also feels a very low limit. Furthermore the switching between characters and gadgets constantly breaks the flow you're in.
Because you dont know what type of mission you're gonna get, you need to backtrack if you picked an unsuited character. And even when you pick a suited character, it sometimes doesnt even matter. For the "driven to distraction" mission I picked my spy character with a modified car. I didnt get to use it.... (although if you can tell me which song plays during the mission, would be appreciated)
As for the open world itself, no direct acces to vehicles or even music player (I understand as a resistance movement you dont want a registered car or a spotify account, its just gameplaywise annoying) are like basic things that should somehow be in the game. While the social stealth with some characters/uniformed acces is a nice touch, it lacks the hitman approach as even the bottom feeders of clan kelley/Albion/the police recognise you when you are reasonably close (although ive learned to use it with AR cloak, but that means you cant equip your spiderbot). You cant really interact with traffic as with previous games (unless you've selected a character), and I have no idea what the ETO is for aside cosmetics.
So am I just playing the game wrong? Does it get better later on with different characters? (didnt unlock Aiden/Wrench/etc yet. Is the online mode or Legion of the dead any good? Again, I'm not bashing on the game. I just want to understand why my experience is so radically different to previous games and get some more enjoyment out of it
So I'm still in the prologue area (before the kjotve fight), and it has happened now for the second time that the game locks when looking at the world map. I can't quit it, move to menu or store. just nothing and I have to alt-f4/quit through task manager. It's really weird as the open world itself runs very smooth.
I played 2-3h yesterdat and it didnt happen once. Now in the span of 10minutes twice...
