Sleeping Dogs review

    Activision canned True Crime Hong Kong because from their market research and development delays, it wasn't going to be worth it unless they sold some (something ridiculously high) 10 million + units which it probably wouldn't. Overall Sleeping Dogs uses so many mechanics well in an open world game. The collectibles have nice bonuses attached to them, and the skill trees are well used. Playing Sleeping Dogs reminded me of what I wished True Crime Streets of LA was. A more functional driving, shooting, melee combat system. Just Cause 2 is my favorite open world game this gen, but that could change. While Just Cause 2 for me had the best gameplay, the atmosphere and vibrancy was non existant. Panau was just a fun playground. Sleeping Dogs has a more lively city with pedesterians going about their business, and Cantonese pop and rap music on the radio is a nice addition for the atmosphere. Sleeping Dogs expands into new territory on what an open world game can do in both setting and gameplay. Thank you Square Enix.

    it my be late but i had to say sleeping dogs was a great game my only problem was it was sooooo short.i think its unfair to consumers that one of the greatest game companys square Enix would do this.i find myself to be very intelligent so when i saw the new DLC it was obvious.they were afraid of sleeping dogs not selling so that figured the audience that did love the game wouldn't mined buying more missions em em em smh.On a good note tho it had something gta 4 didn't offer..... partial realistic washing blood from wei shens face. interchangeable outfits.also being able to pic up many items to fight with.hopefully a sleeping dogs 2 is in the making.plz make the game longer lol
