I have to say, starting to play it was a bit excited. It was fun having a huge city like Chicago (in the future) playable where you could walk/ride/drive around the whole city looking at the sights.
I would say though that the story is a bit bland or blah. At first you only see little snippiest of info regarding what happened to the main character. You don't really get a full picture to easily, maybe near the end but I still felt like I wasn't seeing/hearing the whole (back) story.
The hacking (although not at all realistic) can be a bit fun, but most of the time it wasn't very challenging at all. I guess cause they made the game for the masses. The only challenging part is some of the missions having you take out certain enemies in a certain way, or without attracting much attention, using the environment as your weapon sometimes. This can actually be a bit tedious when you have a guard pass by a spot where you want to get them but missed your mark and have to wait sometimes up to 5-10 minutes for them to walk all the way back to that spot if they even do it.
Some of the other characters you meet up along the way don't have any fleshed out backstory, and you don't really get to know them at all to well for you to actually care to much about them.
The city is quite fun, with things here and there that help you during missions, like changing traffic lights, to raising barriers. But after the first hour of playing you find it starting to become repetitive. The mini hacking things, that end up letting you see into peoples buildings and such and hear a bit of whats going on usually isn't interesting enough to remember at all. It's usually someone hiding something or worried someone will find out they are doing something wrong.
The vehicles are a bit of fun, but driving them can be a bit of a pain. I really found it difficult to stay in control of my vehicle or easily maneuver around somethings. When the game requires you to be driving long distances from point A to B, and your tires blow out, or you just can't turn it to easily at some turns can be a bit of a pain.
Then there is something I didn't understand to easily at first and started to get annoyed with sometimes which is that unless you change the settings to make it so no one else can connect up, your game is online and thus every now and then you will be "invaded" by another player trying to steal your info/money or whatever. This doesn't happen during missions, but on the way to missions it can happen at any time. Sometimes you can spot them easily because they aren't acting like the AI does in the game and all of a sudden you see a prompt on the screen telling you you're being invaded while the other player trys to hide nearby stealing your data. You then have to stop what your doing and find them and kill them, or lose out on money or experience or something.
Eventually when you get better at the game or at least near the middle of the game it becomes a bit easier, but sometimes you get experienced players who know the best hiding spots in you're area such as hidden up above on a roof you didn't know you could get up on. If you end up doing it at times, you will find a lot of players who are notified your "invading them" will stand there for a few seconds completely still then disconnect (shutting the game down) to avoid getting "invaded" which kinda ruins it for you if you're constantly having it happen to you but you can't find to many people to do it to.
There is also rampant cheating at times where you will be "invaded" at one point and before you know it they have gotten all your data within a few seconds because you weren't notified right away because they were using some sort of mod or hack thats not part of the game. I had this happen to me at least a few times. Or if playing some of the missions where you get a gun and have to collect the data you can find yourself getting snipped every two seconds by the same player who somehow magically knows exactly where you are every time you get close. I missed out on a few multiplayer only gifts you get for single player because it became increasingly hard to win any experience during mutiplayer matches with a lot of cheaters out there. I have played my fair share of shooters in the past, as well as mutiplayer games so im not new to this but it still gets a bit boring after a while and annoying not being able to get anything cause of others using mods/hacks at times.
Anyways, ill quickly end this cause its getting long. The story is really kinda forgetful. I already beat the game and I don't remember all that much about the story. It wasn't that difficult of a game but I still found it fun. I say it was worth the money. Even with some of the negatives
Fun open world of Chicago (in the future)
A bit of "hacking" mixed with first person shooting
Interesting ideas for a game with mutiplayer kinda tied into single player
The multiplayer aspect can really screw with you when your trying to play the game unless you change it in the settings options
The hackers/cheaters/modders who unfairly win some multiplayer matches
The story is kinda forgettable
The characters aren't very interesting
Some repetitiveness near the middle of the game
The driving in the game was pretty bad compared to other games iv played
Even though I sound pretty hard on the game, I found it fun. These days most of the bugs have been worked out so you wont find to many glitches in the game this size. The only thing you might dislike is the multiplayer when its unfairly stacked against you. Id say its worth a play.
Hope my review helped people who are interested in the game.
