Amazing Hong Kong Police Sandbox GameMoNoTieace | Oct. 8, 2013 | Review of Sleeping Dogs: Limited Edition
I had my doubt for this major title back when it was announced, as True Crime:Hong Kong, by Activision. But Boy am I glad that the license for this game is pick up by Square-Enix, delivering us such an amazing Sandbox game similar to GTA but 10x the AWESOMENESS.
There isn't many games where you get to play as a undercover police officer tasked to infiltrate the triads. Throughout the game, you're constantly reminded that you are playing as a undercover cop whereby you lose points for being bad cop (turning helpless citizens in to human congee). So.... Although being a "GTA CLONE" you can't mess around killing people in the game.
The game focus a lot on its hand-to-hand Combat system which is spectacular, it's very similar to the batman arkham series, minus the free flow combat... plus a lot more realism. And it's really great. Since the focus is on hand-to-hand combat, the shooting mechanics in this game is... well... Meh~, nothing spectacular.
Driving is great in this game and controls are easy to grasp. THE VEHICLES AVAILABLE IS VROOOoooOM! SUPER FAST! This area of the game shines brightly during the car chase.
Overall Sleeping Dog is definitely on my top list for Sandbox Game.
Explosive Open-World SandBox GameMoNoTieace | Oct. 8, 2013 | Review of Just Cause 2
Just cause 2 can be considered one of the best Sandbox game ever! With a massively beautiful huge world, you will find yourself spending time exploring the world. Messing around with vehicles and blasting everything in your way or even hooking things up. The mission (except the stronghold missions which are repetitive) available throughout the game is exceptionally entertaining; Missions such as stopping a nightclub in the sky from blowing up and defending a large drug silo while the military sends waves of enemies after you. Overall, Just cause 2 provides many many hours of immersing gameplay that will keep you up into the wee hours of the morning blowing things up and messing around. Just Cause 2 is definitely worth getting at such low price
