I loved the game I just wish there was more to it. I beat the game in 4 days and there isn't a lot of side missions like GTA has. If you boost cars and do the races the game becomes really really easy. I did like the races but I didn't lose once so the AI was weak. Boosting cars is way too easy and it gives you way too much money. These oversights lowered my review score and enjoyment of this game. Hopefully the sequel will be better.
If you cant wait to play GTAV, then play this game in the mean time. Its GTA but with Asian characters and based in HK. The game is cool, your typical undercover cop trying to bust a gang, yada yada yada. Make friends with cops and other gangs to build relationships, very typical nothing new.
Graphics are horrendous as in its a polished PS2 game. I am convinced that our current generation of consoles were never "next gen" if this is the output for every PS3 game...unless they just decided to copy over the xbox port to make it easier to create. But anyways.
The only thing I really liked was when you drive, there are arrows to guide you when you want to turn on the next street, not leaving you wondering wheres the turnout (something that GTA and any other similar game after should absolutely copy)
Sfx/music werent bad at all. Authentic
Gameplay is about 20 hours or so depending how many side quests you wanna do.
