10 Reasons Why You Should be Excited for Sleeping Dogs

"Sleeping Dogs is an open-world game from Square Enix and United Front Games that looks all sorts of awesome. I’ve been blown away ever since I saw the first trailer for this game, and this is something that has a chance to be a massive critical and commercial success. The game is entirely set in Hong Kong, and you play as Wei Shen, an undercover cop. The premise sounds fantastic already, doesn’t it?" (PC, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, Xbox 360)

Still disappointed that it just takes place on Hong Kong Island...
... and not Kowloon, Lantau, New Territories, which are at least equally as interesting as HK Island.

It's a bit like having GTA4 ONLY having the middle ('Manhattan') part of New York/LC.

Hopefully, this game will be a big success so there will be a chance for a bigger and better sequel which WILL make use of more parts of the city!

Thats what is putting me off buying the game day 1. The map is far too small, we've come to a point now with open world games where they should be bigger. I was disapointed with SR3 that they given the game a smaller map, same with Fallout New Vegas and GTA4.

I mean if your playing this game it could get a bit boring going to the same places or keep seeing them over and over.

The 20 hour story(despite looking good) is also putting me off. Bought GTA4 Complete edition on PSN recently. I'm 33 hours in the main game and I haven't even touched Lost and Damned or Ballad of Gay Tony. If I can gt THAT much story for $30, I'm not paying $60 for Sleeping Dogs Day 1.

SP looks like one of those bargain bin games you get on Black Friday or a Buy 2 gt 1 free sale.

If the game is good enough, and the story itself is 20-hours (like mentioned above), that is probably enough to justify a day one purchase for me. You can still free roam and blaze about in vehicles causing havok, and who knows what else they have in store for side activities. It reminds me of a deeper, open world Yakuza, and I'm okay with that.

It really doesn't put me off - as long as the content is worth it. I think in this case, it is.

One reason it's a good open world game that's good enough.
