Steam reviews Watch Dogs: Uplay rage, dog puns, and snap judgments

Ubisoft’s highly anticipated open-world action game Watch Dogs has only just come out today, and already the community at online gaming service Steam is having its say.

Steam users haven’t held back when delivering their thoughts on a game which was originally due out six months ago. Ubisoft only announced the delay a few weeks before its original release date, and interest in it has increased since.

We’ve picked through several hundred Steam reviews to find some unusual takes on Watch Dogs, plenty of rage for Ubisoft’s online Uplay service, which is required to authenticate the game on PC (and is having a bit of trouble doing so), and one or two gamers who seem a little confused.

Rest assured, we didn’t find as many dog puns as you’d expect.

Some Steam users are a little hard of hearing …
