Worth Your Time

NinjaDegu | Aug. 17, 2012 | Review of Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition

Sleeping Dogs does everything right.

The writing in Sleeping Dogs is excellent. The characters, each tragically flawed in his or her own way, fill the thoroughly-engrossing story with a sense of life and vibrancy that has been sorely missed in the industry over the past few years.

The combat in Sleeping Dogs is good. Very good, in fact. The melee system is intuitive and rewarding. Every counter and attack feels natural and the combat rarely gets stale, even after several hours of playing. The gunplay is nice too, with a balance of slow-mo vaults and cover shooting.

Visually Sleeping Dogs looks quite good on PC, with plenty of DX11 features and texture packs available. The sound is quite good too, especially when it comes to the voice acting, which is a unique blend of English and Cantonese.

In all, Sleeping Dogs is worth your time.
