Sleeping Dogs is a game similar to GTA, but it's so much better. What I really liked about this game was the story line! It was so engaging and with a voice over cast consisting of actual actors and actresses. The fighting is much more enjoyable than GTA because you can unlock new moves to effectively beat an ambush of enemies. The game is a little on the short side for me (i beat the game in about 16 hours?) but there are so many more collectibles to find in the game that it will keep you occupied for a long time.
OVERALL: If you love GTA games, you will love this game. (Also Sleeping Dogs has a good ending, I wasn't disappointed with it at all)

I was interested in seeing this game since it was made by Square Enix and it has the open world element I like. The graphics and music is great. You start out as a cop in Honk Kong who is trying to infiltrate a gang who is responsible for the murder of your family. Once you get through the tutorials you get to have some fun. I like how you can finish off the enemies in creative ways including an air conditioner, pop machine and a phone booth. It has a little bit of the Punisher in it. You will also come across random citizens who ask you for help ranging from picking up an item, racing to fighting someone. The one thing I do not like about this game is that you have to use your martial arts to fight while the bad guys use knives, crow bars and guns. Rent this game first and see what you think.

ok so i played true crim and after i realize this is kinda like a sequel then i thought uh oh cuz i think i went through that one in about a 4 hrs. i will say that i'm not a fan of open world free roams but this was a breathe of fresh air. first off the hand to hand combat system start of small and slow but by the middle of the game the hidden complexity will be revieled and you'll realize that your actually having fun with the different combos.

the driving isn't the best but it is fun. when you ge to the point when your driving and shooting you will definetly be having fun with it. the police ai are actually pretty dumb and so easy to evade it's almost pointless.

overlall you'll be surpised how into this gme you will be by the end. it starts off slow and lame but you'll be glued to the screen by the end for sure. the only downfall i can say is the lack of clear direction of priority of missions which i feel is a big downfall in most of these games. other than that it's awesome.
