Analog Addiction writes: "After being stuck in development hell for several years no-one knew exactly how Sleeping Dogs was going to turn out. Publisher Activision painted a fairly bleak picture of the title when they cancelled its production early last year, stating that it was “just not good enough”. However colossal Japanese publisher, Square Enix obviously realised its potential when they stepped in to resurrect the project. And thank god they did because Sleeping Dogs is an awesome sandbox experience in the same vein as Grand Theft Auto 4 or Saints Row the Third, with a gritty narrative full of conflict, subterfuge and consequence. If you’re an open-world fan and you’re looking for something to tide you over until GTA V, then look no further than the hardboiled action-fest that is Sleeping Dogs."
