One of the best open world games out there

AeroPhobic | Feb. 6, 2014 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition

As an open world action game Sleeping Dogs is in a class of it's own. A great combat system (reminiscent of the Arkham and Assassin's Creed games) combined with a huge city to explore on foot, by car or by boat, tons of sidequests and activities will surely make you have a hell of a time with this game.

The story, while not as memorable as for example a GTA game, will still keep you hooked with it's twists and turns until the very end. Wei as an undercover cop infiltrates a Triad gang and finds himself befriending this group of people, which makes him somewhat question where his loyalties (should) actually lie.

The city of Hong Kong is beautifully rendered and feels like an actual bustling city with crowds of people hanging around at the markets or walking by the storefronts.

The car handling in Sleeping Dogs is also much better and action packed than in most of its competitors, letting you ram into cars by pressing a button and direction and allowing you to slow time and jump onto another car to overtake it.

Finally, something has to be said for the great job that has been done on the PC version. Great optimization and high resolution textures along with a slew of customization options should let it run very well on most modern systems.

It's an absolute gem of a game in my opinion and definitely worth the money.
