Sleeping Dogs Review | Explosion

Let’s get this out of the way; Sleeping Dogs isn’t a bad game, Where some long-forgotten series manage to rise from the ashes as a phoenix, Sleeping Dogs is nothing more than a poor-man’s version of Grand Theft Auto IV that had a baby with Batman: Arkham City, but for some reason it still costs $60.

"Sleeping Dogs is nothing more than a poor-man’s version of Grand Theft Auto IV" I don't think it was ever trying to be a GTA clone. Not every open world game that has shooting is trying to be like GTA.

Having firearms in Sleeping Dogs is more like an upgrade than anything else. You can't have a collection of guns with you at all times, and use them whenever you want. The main focus of combat is the Martial Arts/ Hand to Hand combat, and it really shines in this game. Of the few hours I've played of this game, I'm really enjoying it way more than GTA IV. Not that GTA IV is bad, just didn't enjoy it as much as the other GTA's and other open world games.

this review fails hard, SD is more fun than GTA4, and the combat is awesome. plus the city is alive, and not some life sucking soulless place.

Awesome game. I certainly do not think it was a poor mans GTA at all.

We all have a right to an opinion. That being said, we all have a right to think one's opinion sucks.

In this case, I think your opinion of the game sucks, explosion.

Explosion is just a poor mans ign.

Sites like this are the reason why we get mainstream crap for videogames. Someone tries something new, that has some resemblance to another, and it gets trashed for it.

While we're at it, let's all dress exactly the same.

It's nice to see new franchises like Sleeping Dogs, and Dragon's Dogma to experiment with existing ideas and take them to new directions.

6.5....another website clearly begging for hits...yawn.

Having played GTA IV (which in my opinion, GTA hasnt been fun since San Andreas), with its stupid "love/girlfriend" mini games, "clothes changing" system from hell, redundant missions....Sleeping Dogs was much more refreshing, fun to play. A new location, beautiful Hong Kong, Varied missions, good voice acting, (not sure where you thought it was bad ...buts thats your opinion), there is even a fighting system, which in GTA...oh wait there isnt any in GTA......

Is it smaller than GTA?, sure, but it was well executed and looks SO nice, but most importantly its FUN.

This is a solid 8.5 in my book based on the fun factor. The points lost would be only for some of the little bugs and the lenght of the game + the rest in my opinion was very nicely done. Havent had this much fun in a sandbox game since pre-GTA IV (aka the tired franchise, that i keep buying because i just love those games).

Anyways, Dai-lo is calling, gotta go !
