Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
"Calling Sleeping Dogs something like an "open-world crime" game does it a disservice, as it invokes thoughts of simply shooting and carjacking yet another major metropolis. Sleeping Dogs is a more refined take on how an open-world game can play out, sacrificing the over-the-top content for a much more focused experience. The game does cut loose, and the melee combat is certainly a blast. Ultimately, Sleeping Dogs manages to marry open-world gameplay with an extremely engaging plot." - Worthplaying.com
"Goofing around and pursuing high marks on these leaderboards is fun, but it's the atmospheric city and the varied story missions that make Sleeping Dogs an alluring adventure." - Gamespot.com

Best Open World Game of the Previous "Generation."tedesco75 | Sept. 15, 2014 | See all tedesco75's reviews »
When I think of the great open world games from the last "generation" I don't think of GTA 4, Saints Row or Assassin's Creed. This is the game that really did it for me. I was skeptical at first because it is always on sale but I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for an open-world game but doesn't want to do the same thing over again.
To start with the setting is nothing short of superb. You can practically smell the pork buns as you are walking around in downtown Hong Kong and while I've never been there friends of mine who have say that the setting does a great job of the spirit of the city.
The graphics are superb, they look amazing and of course with your pc at 1080p you are getting some of the sharpest graphics I've ever seen. The cityscapes are beautiful, the weather effects and lighting are great and the violence is nice and bloody without being too over the top.
The thing that really does it for this game is the fighting. It is practically a Bruce Lee simulator. No open world game this generation has even come close to the competence and outright fun in the hand to hand combat in this game. Whether you use a melee weapons (which includes everything from knives to fish), the environment or your fists this games fighting delivers in spades. The gunplay on the other hand is serviceable but it is not worthy of the same praise as the melee combat.
The voice acting is great for the most part. I would have preferred the game to be entirely in Chinese though, the switching back and forth from English was a bit grating but having never been to Hong Kong maybe that is just how it is done there.
The story is pretty good, it's a cliche undercover cop story but there are just enough twists, turns and betrayals to keep everything pretty interesting. The story DLC are also great, I recommend you grab all of them if you pick this up as well. Overall I can't think of another game I would recommend more from the "last gen" games.

While you are waiting for GTA V to come out on PC, you can buy this game. It's very refreshing because of the setting (Hong Kong) and diverse characters. It focuses more on melee combat and has great and fun mini games. Graphics are very detailed, and the city looks amazing. Only drawback is its repetitiveness.

I have over 20 hours in that game. It has very interesting quests which are making you go through the whole town, following the main story, going from quest to quest, making "hits" with the gang, the fighting system is what took my attention. You have big choice of fighthing mechanics to use, the melee system is very good integradet with the whole atmoshere and the main character. The graphics are extremely good for game at 2012, I expected worse graphics, but they are amazing. The cinematics are also awesome! The only, and only thing i didn't like is the vehicles movement, it's too "wooden" for me, it might be just me, but that's how i feel about it. Except that, the shooting,the kicks, the combat system is very, very good! Some of the scenes might make you cry or upset you.. You have your own hotel room from where you can control the camers, there are quests with tracking the signal which will lead you to the location or target which is kinda hard, but entertaiment. If you have played the Grand theft auto series, well this is close, but with much better storyline and combat and quests. And what makes it even more fun and entertaiment - It's open world. You will have much more hours than me once you taste the atmosphere in the whole game
Kinda GTA, but not GTA (in a good way)DragosLoL | July 16, 2014 | See all DragosLoL's reviews »
Sleeping Dogs is one of my favorite open world games out there. The gameplay style functions a bit like Grand Theft Auto but not exactly. Sleeping Dogs has its own unique "kink" to its gameplay. You could learn martial arts or using a bat or a gun to finish off your enemies. The game is very customizable when it comes to its RPG elements. The story is intriguing too as you venture as a undercover cop and have to deal with the triads of Hong Kong. There are a couple DLC available for the game as well but most of it consists of additional costumes and separate storylines. Unfortunately though, what you complete in the main story doesn't carry onto the DLC because the DLC are completely new stories and environments, which was a bit disappointing but wasn't too big of a issue. Overall, the game is great and you should give it a try if you want a good story and a open vast environment to play around in.
Sleeping Dog, Hidden GemDarlus | June 22, 2014 | See all Darlus's reviews »
Sleeping Dogs is a game I enjoyed from beginning to end. Some of the story elements seemed a little cliche from overuse in gaming and movies, but I felt immersed and involved with the story's main characters. I cared what happened to them, and it wasn't always clear how situations were going to pan out. There were a fair amount of side missions and events to keep me busy in the city if I wasn't following one of the games 2 paths for the main story. The upgrades system felt familiar and natural, encouraging me to complete optional tasks to achieve the best possible fighting combos and fully utilizes Wei's abilities. I was also impressed with the driving mechanics as I was able to easily maneuver through the streets of the city avoiding traffic and firing weapons or dismounting a vehicle in favour of another. That being said, this is an open-world game that resembles GTA, and, if you aren't a fan of that style of gaming, this may not be the game for you; however, I had a tons of fun playing, and would definitely play through it again.
