Sleeping Dogs Review | BlogCritics

Released two years after Grand Theft Auto III, True Crime: Streets of L.A. was a hit. The sandbox action game borrowed much from GTA but let players play on the other side of the law as an undercover police officer. Where Grand Theft Auto seems to favor the east coast of the U.S., Streets of L.A. recreated 240 square miles of the City of Angels. For the sequel, Activision took the franchise east to the Big Apple where much of the sheen wore off the franchise. A True Crime reboot was planned with Hong Kong as the setting until Activision shelved the idea. Luckily, the ambitious publisher, Square Enix bought the game but without the name and has now delivered Sleeping Dogs. (PC, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, Xbox 360) 4/5
