Do you like GTA? what about 90's martial arts movies or maybe the Jackie Chan ones? Do you think the old good beat 'em up genre died 20 years ago without any good new-gen successor? If this questions generated some interest on you. let me introduce Sleeping Dogs The game is a great GTA-style sandbox set in Honk Kong, focused mainly on fighting with a very good fighting system, good amount of combos, throws, various types of enemy to deal with them at the same time and thankfully a good difficulty, everything you need to have fun for a long time. There is also some fps mechanics once you reach mid- game, not as much as other games of the genre but still a decent one, and of course a decent amount of vehicles to drive and even collect on your garage, lamentably driving is not as good as it should be, being it the most remarkable flaw of this game, but don't let that discourage you as I said before the game is focused on fighting. In conclusion if you like martial arts, fighting and video games you definitely have to try this game
Sleeping Dogs the Definitive Edition is a great rebranding of the original game. It updates the parkour and combat system with slightly new controls and in my opinion more response from the original. The driving has been improved by alot the only thing they didnt spiff up a bit was the camera controls while driving which can still be a pain in some situations. As for the textures and update models I will say the graphics haven't been updated that much but the increased models makes the enviroment feel a little bit more immersive. Now for the DLC which I feel is done the right way in this game as opposed to the original where it was all handed to you the second you step into your apartment and you become the endgame badass on mission 2. All the clothing has been added to a Legendary Vendor, police vehicles and equipment is achieved by finishing cop jobs, cars and other clothing is all unlocked via finishing missions/side content and the zodiac tournament. If you haven't yet played this game this is definetly a great buy having the whole game and DLC's in one with update mechanics and improved code for a much more stable playing experience. If you have the original game but not all the DLC's and you were a fan of this game you'll love it all over again.
This isn't the most polished game but I have to admit that I did have more fun playing Sleeping Dogs than I did GTAV. I've beaten GTAV but the story did not leave as much of a lasting impression on me as much as Sleeping Dogs' story. The characters were memorable and the music is great. The martial arts combat is badass and there's just enough in this game that getting 100% completion isn't a total chore. Its a game that doesn't take itself too seriously (ex. the hilarious Chingrish accents) and rewards you with a Hong Kong action movie experience that you control. Do you want to play with the mentality of a cop? or a ganster? It's totally up to you. The only question I had left unanswered after completing the game is why was it titled Sleeping Dogs? Google had this to say: (idiomatic) To leave things as they are; especially, to avoid restarting or rekindling an old argument; to leave disagreements in the past. "Eventually, they decided it would be best to let sleeping dogs lie and not discuss the matter any further." Bought this game when it was on sale for super cheap. With that said, in my opinion, it's worth the full price! I rate it 5 out of 5. Buy it!
This is an amazing open-world game with many activities in it. You are located in Korea as undercover cop, you work for both sides, the police and the triads, you can bust drug dealers or race on a illegal street racing, you can help the police catch a criminal or steal cars for money. You also learn moves by finding statues and returning them to martial arts teacher, who teaches you a move of your choice, that can be activated by button combinations like in beat-em-ups. All that, plus the good controls, graphics and sound make Sleeping Dogs an amazing game, the style this game is in is very unique compared to other open-world games.
I love everything about this game! It looks great, has great music, the story is interesting, and could even stand it's ground among the best of TV shows, plus the hand to hand fighting is even better than in the arkham series! Also, you have to use kung fu a lot! And i mean a lot! By the time you actually get a gun, you'll get through like half the game, and at that point, you'll fell like a god even holding a handgun! The cars are also amazing! driving them is a smooth experience, and while not as realistic as GTA, it is always entertaining. This version contains every DLC, so it's worth investing in it. The DLC almost double the playtime, plus this game is insanely long anyway, and very replayable. Yes, I'm a fanboy. Try it and You'll be too.
