    So, after the cutscene on the cemetery ended I went on to the next checkpoint on the campaign's story and bam! Wii U froze and for a couple of seconds made a beep noise.

    I knew Watch Dogs on Wii U wasn't a very good port but didn't expect it to come to this.

    Plenty of games cause the Wii U to do that.

    I have had it with plenty of the Lego games, Minecraft, etc, etc

    This has only happened once before to me -- Sniper Elite V2. Seems like the Wii U is telling me not to play crappy ports.

    no first party game has FSOD'ed (frozen screen of death,from the old phantasy star online days,(lockup then buzzz) the wii u, but 3rd party yeah. Zombie U has many times. Monster Hunter 3u does but only if the friends list goes offline. When that happens it FSOD's the entire server population lol.

    Is Watch dogs even playable/worth playing? I've heard it sucks really bad, but I'm still interested in it since I haven't played it yet and WiiU is the only console I own currently.

    Play it on 360/PS3/PS4/XO/PC than on the Wii U. Those versions are better optimised to play Watch Dogs and the framerate will be better and consistent.

    Stealth gameplay - Very similar to the ol' days of Splinter Cell.
    Hacking - Sorta fun.
    Driving - Wow, it is horrible! I'm not exaggerating, you can even side-crash on cars and still go through, yeah, try doing this on Sleeping Dogs or GTA.
