Duuro says: Sleeping Dogs is an alright example of your typical sandbox game. I don't think it really pushes the excitement of open world past its limits, but it's still a fun game to play!"
The story should have gotten a higher score than a five. The story imho was one of the best things about this game has to offer.
Agreed, I was really emotionally attached to the characters and the story was very good.
It had one or two jaw dropping moments to me. Story wise, not action set piece wise. I had a blast platinumING it.
Way better than GTA for me. Good story, believable characters (except for Wei), sexy cards, fun fighting mechanics, cool clothes. Too bad the game wasn't longer. Also, i hated losing my guns after restarting a checkpoint, but otherwise the best game I've played this year so far.
How wasn't Wei a believable character? I did wish they would've let you fought against 18K more. While I did hate losing my gun it did however made some missions more challenging. I did also like how the cops didn't ignore the fact you had a pistol, shotgun or rifle in your hand. One of the things that had me laughing when I played GTA is that I could run around a weapons like Bazookas, RPGs and Flamethrowers and the cops would just keep walking as if I didn't even exist.
Wei was likeable, but not realistic at all. I mean he was just too smooth, too perfect. A guy that is a cop but really is more gangster than anything and is just too smooth too really make the game feel like he had it hard. I think there needed to be more death defying situations or moments where Wei regretted the gangster lifestyle. Its almost like he was a gangster infiltrating the cops, not the other way around.
HAHA & were supposed to take this site seriously after this review lol not even worth clicking the link!
WTFed and NOed FTW!
No, just no.
Bought this on a steam sale and was pleasantly surprised at just how good it was. I ended up beating it while I lost interest in GTA4 about halfway through. The driving mechanics, melee fighting and story is what really made me love this game more than GTA4. Really looking forward to GTA5 though, hopefully it'll keep my interest the whole way through.
R* ain't going toa make the same mistakes again, you can bank on that!
Amazingly under rated game so much fun to play, your nt going to get a fighting system that deep and fun in any sandbox game. The story was an amazing Hong Kong crime story, what's better than that?
Only just got round to starting this after pickingit up in the steam summer sale. It's surprisingly good. For some reason it is the first sandbox I played where I feel a bit had when I run over pedestrians. Bad cop! I was happy when I saw it recently became profitable, hate seeing good games fare badly.
Awful review, this game deserves at least an 8.5 Personally i would give it a 9, Fantastic game!
Sleeping dogs is great. I love the true crime series.
