GIZORAMA - Sleeping Dogs is an open-world game. Therefore, it’s been compared countless times to the Grand Theft Auto series and for good reason. Like those games, Sleeping Dogs has much to offer. It takes a lot of content and many ideas from GTA IV. This isn’t a bad thing. As Darksiders II showed (a game that came out on the same day as Sleeping Dogs), taking ideas from other games isn’t intrinsically bad and can lead to a good game. This especially happens when a game takes those ideas and expands upon them, much like Sleeping Dogs does.
