Did you think Watch_Dogs was a tad ugly compared to the early trailers, gameplay, and so on? You were certainly right but you can also now amend that thanks to a mod. PC Gamer put out an article on said wonderful little mod that amends all your Watch_Dog woes with a bunch of pretty screenshots to boot.

In short it makes the game look pretty much exactly as it did in those fancy E3 trailers long ago. Also, fun fact, they're referred to as E3 settings in the files themselves. Now you may think, "but the game already ran pretty poorly even on higher-end PCs." Well my friend, believe it or not it also improves the game's performance drastically.

Here's a few quick screenshots I took ingame on high/ultra settings, with this wonderful little patch.

This is the first Ubi game that have i bought in 8 years. And it is certainly the last. This **** game DOES NOT WORK. At all. Ubisoft ripped me off. again. screw you UBI. keep your ****** console ports to yourself. PC games use mouse and keyboard you know. im not gonna buy a potato in order to control this game.

Graphics downgrade? Who cares.. The game still looks good.

I also don't want any "WATCH DOGS ****. GTA BEST" comments here. I love GTA V too, but I'm tired of these comments. I really wish these immature fanboys keep their rants to themselves.

alright so the game is great, If you can get passed the fact that the controls are terrible and theres no consequences for driving recklessly (police seem to be non-existent except when the story says so) and the fact that driving feels off (collision doesn't have any weight to it and feels very rushed, theres a great game here!

Theres all the obvious issues (its Ubisoft game so you know its rushed out the door). Theres mouse lag (which you can by following a few steps: Tiny.cc), no FOV slider and the multiplayer is really buggy at the moment however the technical director said they (his team) are working on it: Tiny.cc

and no SLI performance scaling, running two AMD cards in crossfire reduces performance.

Hopefully that issue will be fixed along with the FOV slider, multiplayer performance and mouse lag.

When I say terrible controls, I mean there's so many places in the game where keboard + mouse control is badly implemented. There's so many places a cursor would've been a better control choice.
