You would be remiss to say that Sleeping Dogs looks an awful lot like a game trying to cash in on the hype leading up to a certain other open-world game. In that respect you would also be selling the game immensely short. Sleeping Dogs is, in fact, the planned follow-up to the True Crime series before it changed developers (and eventually publishers) before landing on store shelves. Most games going through that kind of developmental hell never end up making it to retail, let alone being anything worth talking about. Sleeping Dogs defies the odds to deliver one amazing experience that everyone should check out.
