With the initial Watch Dogs release I was so excited, it had so much potential. Any potential ultimately was soon squandered, with a basic lack of decent gameplay couple with a HUGE graphics / physics downgrade, I felt bamboozled.

Is gameplay in the trailer indicative of the final product — more often that not no, its running on specialized hardware, designed to push the visual fidelity of the demo to its max.
