Sleeping Dog is an great fighting game, but everything else feel fake , the driving , the shooting and even the acting.For example when your driving your car it feels like your driving a RC car in GTA Sanandreas . when you beat the game you do not have that much to do because the map is not that fun except if your going around beating up people, but overall if you love fighting games you will fall in love with sleeping dog.
I actually really enjoyed this game, i liked the focus on hand to hand martial arts combat. but i did have a few let downs.
Let's start with the controls, they're passable. i thought the combat controls were pretty well done. reminded me of arkham city combat, but not nearly as smooth. driving is fun but i feel both of these aspects of the game suffered from a clunky camera.
The graphics are good enough, but their not gonna blow you away. I did think they did a good job on the sound though. the ambiance sounds of hong kong are done really well.
I was really disappointing with the story. i though it started out alright but i feel they really failed to capitalize on something that had potential. i really though they could have done a great climax where Wei's two different worlds clash......but that epic moment never really comes. during the final cinematic i literally was just thinking to myself how bad the story of the game is. it's basically a badly written kung fu action movie.
Overall it's an enjoyable game, but i found myself getting bored of it towards the end of the game. but it's worth a rent.

First off, I think I saw more cutscenes than gameplay...and this was a fairly long game (about 15 hours). Besides being repetitive, the upgrades were boring and in general the game is too easy. Unless you need a fix really bad before GTA5, forget even renting this game.
