How realistic is PS4 hacking game Watch Dogs?

Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs recently arrived on PS4 and Xbox One, a city-hack adventure that promises much – but does it deliver?

Although its gameplay has earned almost unanimously positive reviews, Watch Dogs has bigger fish to fry than the critics. The game was developed partially in response to real world issues – such as the 10,000 government security cameras installed in Chicago, making it the most watched city in the United States.

Watch Dogs is designed to ask questions of surveillance in the modern day world. The hacking behaviours shown in the game are also meant to appear more realistic than your average first-person shooter, but how successful is the portrayal?
