Sleeping Dogs Review (PlanetXbox360)

From the PlanetXbox360.com feature review:

"Imagine this: an open world crime-thriller game where you play as a single protagonist that gets wrapped up between the law and a bunch of criminals. Wouldn't that be something? All facetiousness aside, I'm an open world gaming enthusiast. I think they give players a fun way to explore different cities (whether real or fantasy) and occasionally some pretty interesting stories to explore them with. The original gig for this game was to simply be True Crime: Hong Kong and act as a relaunch of the franchise. The relaunch has still more or less happened, only under a new publisher and a new title."

Can't believe such a game was almost canned... great on Square Enix for picking it up...

they should have got the rights to use the name true crime. a lot more people would realize what game this really is.

It's A Crime That There's No Sleeping Dogs 2 Yet

Huzaifah from eXputer: "Sleeping Dogs from the early 2010s is one of the best open-world games out there but in dire need of a resurgence."

LG_Fox_Brazil95d ago

I agree, I consider the first one a cult classic already

isarai95d ago

You say "yet" as if it's even possible anymore. United Front Games is gone, along with anyone that made this game what it is

CrimsonWing6994d ago

That’s what happens when games sell poorly. And I’ve seen people wonder why people cry when a game sells badly… this is your answer.

solideagle94d ago

Majority of the time it's true but if a company/publisher is big (in terms of money), they can take a hit or 2. e.g. I am not worried about Rebirth sales as Square will make Remake 3 anyway but if FF 17 doesn't sell then Square might need to look for alternative. <-- my humble opinion

Abnor_Mal94d ago

Doesn’t Microsoft own the IP now since they acquired Activision?

DaReapa94d ago

No. Square Enix owns the IP.

Abnor_Mal94d ago

Oh okay, Activision owned True Crime, but when that didn’t sell as intended it was canceled. Six months later Square Enix bought the rights and changed the title to Sleeping Dogs.*

*As per Wikipedia

Sleeping Dogs was a sleeper hit back then. It was fantastic. It actually still is. Would love a sequel to this, or at least a revive of True Crime series.

watching the video is better then going through 31 pages of gamingbolt.

LG_Fox_Brazil241d ago

Do they explain in the video why there are two numbers 3? Starfield and Tears of the Kingdom?

xeniate235d ago

It's always refreshing to see games embracing the streaming community.

Bloodborne is a game I still restart and play every few months. I would welcome just a re release in 60fps with a visual upgrade. It's a perfect game. If I was king for a day I would include the randomizer mods because then it would be a kind of rogue like and I could play it forever.

gleepot441d ago

Sure, ill take a sequel to all of these.
