I could not find a place on the store to leave feedback. Here it is. I dont think this is a $60 game. More like $30. Bought it for $5 so was worth it. PC specs: R5 5600, noctua l9a cooler/tp, rx6600xt, tg tcreate 32gb ddr4 3200, asus x570-I, xpg gammix s7 512gb nvme, wd green 1tb nvme.
Plenty of content. Storyline was fairly good, made sense, and plenty of spiderwebs to untangle. Spent about 36-40 in-game hours to get done 100% story missions and about 10% side missions.
The hard missions (the last mission of each of the 4 or 5 chapters) were 60% stress/40% fun (i operate at an average of 40% anxiety level on daily basis, thus more stress than fun) but certainly action packed and I suppose I should expect just as much action as there was.
The controls are buggy. Some of the common actions (walking, jumping, getting in cover, etc) are buggy whether doing parkour, controlling cargo drone etc. I found myself unable to avoid conflict with Albion, etc because the controls wouldnt work, thus my character would stay there whether moving oddly or totally still. When applying handbrake on nearly all vehicles, it would normally act like stopping on ice. No not swerving side-to-side, but never-ending slide forward. I jumped out many times because of this. And no, no issues with keyboard. Legion is only game I have these issues in.
The second thing that bothered me was the crashing. First had an issue with launching. A thread on the Legion forums said to add '-eac launcher' without perentheses. That got the game up and running. Then the worst of this was the constant crashing during gameplay. On Watchdogs 2 (currently), I can expect the game to crash at any random gun aiming attempt (know how to fix? let me know.). But Legion would crash anytime during gameplay, no telling when. I went through a list of things that may fix it. Specs requ? Good. Verify files? Good. Win updates? Not good. Drivers utd? Good. Switch to dx11? Yep had to do that. Running stock clocks? Same wether stock or OC. V-Sync? Same wether on or off. Interestingly, found an article about this on TheDroidGuy quote 'Your system must also be using DirectX12 to meet the minimum system requirements.' Dunno if thats the case. Found thread somewhere advising to add '-dx11' to launch commands. Did that, left DX12 on in game menu, that fixed the constant crashing. It still crashes, but rarely.
DISCLAIMER: Spoiler ahead! About 50% of the gameplay was repetitious. Irritating. But there were also 'dead' or meaningless missions. The best example would be the mission in which you help Bagley remember his past. Taking the pictures makes sense and seems cool and the story in this mission is building up to feel like maybe you will, I dont know, lead to a happy ending. But instead, you walk into the human Bagley's room, AI Bagley talks to him through the TV and gets no response, so he says goodbye to human Bagley, the operative walks out of the room, end of mission. Before walking into human Bagley's room, I thought I would be assigned to kidnap him, somehow restore AI Bagley's memories into human Bagley, and voila happy ending! That was a major bummer.
The last point to make would be the different aspects of language. Im not racist; merely pointing out issues Ubisoft created in the language. How many know the difference between the accents of Irish, Jamaican, and traditional English? In the game, there are anomalies. Some black people may sound Irish, some white people may sound Jamaican, and both are a mix of English. I laughed when a black guy talked like he was Irish. Next: Whats up with all the f***s in the game? I think Ubisoft deployed overkill with the younger generational language. Is c*** really an insault people use to talk friendly with each other?
Thank you for taking the time to read my long review of WD Legion.
