Well, there are walkthroughs on youtube already if you want to get an idea. As far as the story line might sound sci-fi, the game in general is much closer to GTA5 than DeusEx. The latter actively encourages a stealth approach, while in Watch Dogs you'll find yourself in the middle of (unavoidable) shootings very often, but don't worry, your average hacker can apparently take a lot of bullets...
I was also having high expectations for this game, but so far a big let down. Not plausible enough to be a good DeusEx, not batshit crazy enough to be a good GTA5.

I did not say living under retrograde religious fanatics is great, I just say that having death raining from above, without trial, sentence, or discretion, might push toward extremism. And no, they don't pray for further American intervention.
I also proposed an alternative strategy in my first post: cut their fundings. Proselitism, weapons, training camps... that stuff costs, and someone ought to pay. This of course includes also when the payers are the U.S. and its allies (see the Lybian and Syrian "freedom fighters").
