Absolutely Amazing Game

This game is an interesting spin on the classic gangster/crime games made popular by the likes of Grand Theft Auto. You're an undercover cop in a Chinese Tong working in the city of Hong Kong. The districts, the characters, the world itself recreates the feeling of this bustling city in a way that is beyond amazing.

Your character is likable, believable, and his motives easily become your own as you hunt down his enemies, collect evidence, and ultimately struggle with loyalty to the gang that has become your family or to your duty as a police officer.

What stands out most about this game, however, is the distinct lack of guns and firefights. Guns are incredibly rare in this game world and firing so much as a single bullet will have the police swarming after you in no time (save for a few secluded locations). Mastering your martial arts moves is key to not only surviving, but thriving in this game. It's worth it to hunt down all the missing Jade Statues and earn your ultimate martial arts move.

The only reason this review is a nine instead of a ten is because of some annoying control related moments. Several fights that I lost would've gone entirely different had the controls been a little more responsive.

But never once did I get so frustrated with the game that I stopped playing it entirely. I finished the main story in a matter of days and even went out of my way to get the karaoke achievement, which was a blast and a nice little added touch to the game world.

Great Game

When I first saw this game I didn't think that I would like it. But since I got it free through Xbox live I thought oh why not if I don't like it I can delete it.

It's surprisingly a good fun game with a great story line and descent graphics. There is of course the main missions that take you thought the story line but there are also a lot of side missions that are fun to play too.(And make money) There are several different ways to upgrade your character (Wei Shen) from fighting to buying different clothes to helping out your friends.

All in all it's a cheap fun game to play. If your wanting a game that's fun to play and not too hard to complete this one is perfect.
