TechnoBuffalo: We’ve entered an age of gaming where “clone” is almost a dirty word. That’s a merit worth discussing in depth at another time, but it’s immediately relevant because of the nature of this game in particular.
Is Sleeping Dogs more than just a clone of better games in properties? Or, does it crumble under the weight of those that gave it such tremendous inspiration.
Quickly? Yes and no. Sleeping Dogs is a strong title well worth the attention of any interested gamer; but, it doesn’t get much better than simple fun. There was a lot of promise here. While it delivers on some of that hype, the rest is left feeling a bit half-baked.
