Have you ever wanted to play GTA as Bruce Lee? Have you ever wanted to increase the melee combat complexity of GTA? Maybe throw in some QTE's (Quick Time Events, Shenmue reference for you nerds, basically you tap a button on command to clear an obstacle or situation)? Well this is the game for you. A story-line driven sandbox playing field with many potential side-quests that may take a week or so of persistent gaming to beat. Pros; Great hand to hand that increases complexity with game play, smooth animation and graphics, decent sound quality, the awesome detective who-dun-it thriller storyline and did I mention unique scenery fatalities? Cons; if not participating in side missions the story can seem semi-short (from a hardcore gamers perspective, not for a casual player however), certain aspects of missions and combat can become repetitive over time, a lot of cinematic cut scenes for those of you who just want to game. That is all, overall I'd say it deserves an 8 for good effort to an addictive game style with a splendid plot! Thanks for reading!

Good Story but combat was lacking

Sleeping Dogs was an okay game. The story was well put together and had great voice actors for all the characters. I liked how the two languages in the game flowed together as people talked with one another. The thing I didn't like is the combat was to repetitive and once you get used to using the counter you will pretty much never die. Overall the game was fun but after a while I just started to get bored with the combat it just felt like all I had to do was wait to counter then mash on x and then counter again.

Great variety in this game the play control take's a little to get used to, but I love this game! Great idea's from Square Enix they really went all out with the story the atmosphere etc! This is a warning to all you players out there! time your move's or you'll get your butt handed to you! The game is what I wished they used in GTA 4 there's custom sound tracks in both games nice going Square Enix! Now if you could only do this with all your games! We need this from all of you video game producers out there, Nomore boring OST in games it needs a change for the better! The game gets a 9-10 great job!! =)
