I love this game! I was sketchy since a game this good hasn't come out from Square Enix in a while but I started playing and almost concidered calling in sick for work. Good, challenging combat keeps it fun and amazing detail in the city really impresses the gamer. The only thing I wish was any better is the driving... It doesn't take anything away from the game but it's the only aspect that I consider a downside.

Sleeping Dogs Delivers

THE UNDERDOG
Sleeping Dogs is definitely an underdog title. There wasn't a lot of publicity or advertising for the game and many people knew nothing about it. This game will in no doubt grow in popularity and become one of the best titles of the year.
MET EXPECTATIONS
As an avid gamer of crime-based, open world structured games. I felt it met expectations. I like what developers keep doing differently with each game type like this that comes out, especially this one. It was unique and fun to be in a different country and as an undercover cop. I always liked working for the Triads in GTA 3 and no game has seemed to touched the idea of Asian gangsters since. I'm glad this game fully embraced that crime world and executed the good idea to meet expectations.
THE GAME
SD's narrowed scope and exclusion of things (like potty humor and aircraft) gave the game more of an edge. This gave the game a solid story throughout with decent voice acting.
The graphics look good and things look like how I would imagine China to be like. I like some new elements such as jumping from cars or motorcycles onto other cars as well as the martial arts fighting and gadgets (similar to the recent Batman titles). Navigating obstacles throughout chase scenes, using environmental objects to impale enemies and slow-mo shooting was fun as well. Sleeping Dogs brings some new things to the table that I hope to see in future similar titles.
THE BAD
The game isn't seamless and sure it doesn't compare to the behemoth of GTA IV, but it's excellent. One can go online and read articles that really only knit pick the game and drop it to an unnecessarily low score of 7's and 8's. This game is a 9 through and through in most all of it's aspects. The two biggest gripes I might have to agree with is it was a bit short and there was no online playability. Other things like texture maps being pixelated or minor glitches is just being particul

This is the first game I got when I started with Gamefly. I love this game. It is so awesome. It is like GTA in Asia. It is a better than GTA. I will buy it to have in my game collection <3
