Hong Kong Police Thriller: The Game

Velhem | Oct. 6, 2013 | Review of Sleeping Dogs: Limited Edition

The first thing that hits you in Sleeping Dogs is another guy's fist connecting with your head. And therein lies a twisted, steely, beauty set against the backdrop of the bustling city of Hong Kong.

Pretty soon, though, you'll find yourself caught up in the drama of undercover detective Wei Shen. Street-wise gangster who first grew up on the same streets he now prowls in his service of Justice, this very same origin may send him teetering over the edge onto the other side of the law.

Ultimately, if you're a fan of fast cars, slightly strange but satisfying gunplay with a touch of John Woo, and devastating displays of martial prowess, you'll definitely find something to enjoy in Sleeping Dogs
