Sleeping Dogs Review (GamersBliss.com)

Sleeping Dogs functions just like a Hollywood action flick. This game was bound to be a ‘sleeper hit’ straight from the get-go. This open world game is a title that would please any fan of Asian culture and action thrillers. Set in the active city of Hong Kong, players take the role of an undercover police officer known as Wei Shen. Wei is faced with a dangerous task of aiding the police in taking out one of the world’s most notorious criminal organizations, the Hong Kong Triads. The player will have the chance to explore the Hong Kong islands in an open world setting. Sleeping Dogs justly captures the true essence of the Hong Kong culture; the island is set up perfectly with flawlessly styled buildings and city streets. The player is forced to feel as if they are in Hong Kong. It is a game that some can find true enjoyment in; a gritty over-the-top action packed game that is sure to keep players on the edge of their seat… What could possibly be wrong with that? However, with all the games glory comes a few draw backs. These draw backs could leave those same players who love that face-paced action, ripping the hair straight out of their head. (PC, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, Xbox 360) 7.5/10

Does anyone know where the heck the name 'Sleeping Dogs' came from? I know the whole true crime stuff that went on but to come out with Sleeping Dogs... why? lol

You haven't heard that quote, "Let sleeping dogs lie"? Basically I guess it's from the game's premise. In which they messed with the "sleeping dog" (or main character). Now they're going to have to deal with him or something similar to that lol.

I really wanted this title to be great and I still may pick it up, but the repetitive gameplay scares me. Although, I do really want to be immersed in a Hong Kong crime drama.

I'm also interested in the game...
... but Square-Enix announcing theyll be releasing LOTS of DLC for the game means I'll wait for a GOTY, if I'm still interested by then...

Very much doubt there will be a GOTY edition, like just cause 2 very good game but no boxed version with all the dlc. Plus this games dlc seems to be clothes and themes (and 4 dlc are available free right away).

Can't wait!

I think and hope this game can be successful like dead island was when it released to similar reviews. Activision cares only about COD and rest of their bread and butter are spiderman games and bad movie tie in games

I am glad SE gave united front games some time to actually make this a good game.

I going to get this game for sure, just not on release.
