I was looking for another great open world game and decided to give this one a go, and I'm glad I did. It runs great with no issues for me. The voice acting is very good and I find the vehicle handling in the car smooth and easy to control unlike some games. The only thing I seem to have an issue with, is when fighting, blocking attacks doesn't always work as it should. But that aside, I definitely recommend this game. There is so much content and it will keep you going for a good while.
I played this game long time ago while waiting for gtav and honestly speaking i had much fun, we'll it's not great and racing mechanics is horrible but it has it's charm. Especially very climactic last mission and extremely well done DLC already included in this version. Overall, somewhat of a guilty pleasure but I will recommend.
After interesting True Crime: Streets of LA and its awful sequel, the series got cancelled and developers were without publisher, but Square Enix yet again came to the rescue and helped release it - and it was worth the wait. If you liked True Crime, you will feel right at home or maybe even better. While in TC controls felt kind of awkward, here it's fluid. Also, graphics are pretty good and driving is done properly, showing to GTA that driving in this type of game can be done right. Definitive edition make the graphics even better than in the original and add some great side content. Overall, this game is pretty big and content full, with great hand to hand combat and solid shooting, just main plot may feel short and rushed. Sad, that we probably won't see a sequel, because Square, just like gave studio life, it has taken it away and canceled them, which is a shame. Still, this is great game from which GTA could learn a thing or two. Recommended.
Story - excellent writing and voice acting elevate what would otherwise be an only moderately interesting version of 'Internal Affairs' into a very evocative playable drama. However, this is hampered somewhat by the 'ludonarrative dissonance' brought on by player actions, and the inevitable pacing problem in pretty much all story driven open world games. Overall, it's a great story running counter to the gameplay. Speaking of, Gameplay - fun driving and hand to hand combat. However, everything is too easy - even on the hardest difficulty. The now-standard Arkham style counter system is made even easier by not allowing you to turn off the flashing lights which alert you to hits. The gunplay is perhaps even worse: you don't have a permanent holster, so most of the time you won't have any weapons at all. However, when you are allowed a gun, the bullet time mechanic makes you pretty much invincible. Graphics - It's a mixed bag. It looks pretty good on the most part, however the environments look pretty muddy as a result of having so much crap on the screen that can't be interacted with, but looks pretty much identical to the handful of useful things. For a game of its time, it's a gorgeous interpretation of hong kong. Sound, Music - The gun sounds are lackluster, but the visceral sounds of the fist-fighting are incredible! Some of the contextual kills are truly made by the horrific sound design. Voice acting, as previously expressed, is absolutely incredibly - even down to the cringy karaoke. It's a great cast who do an excellent job conveying these characters. Overall, it's a big thumbs up despite the flaws. The gameplay is nothing special, but it's functional. The story is what you buy this game for, and for that I would certainly reccomend it.
Third Person crime sandboxes are fairly run of the mill, but this one truly stands out. The visceral combat and arcady driving make this game a joy to play. Performance wise I have heard a few complaints, but it runs perfectly for me. The combat system is a little basic, but it's functional and challenging. The city layout is such that driving is reasonably complicated - but always enjoyable. The story and voice acting are fairly good. It's a fairly basic premise, but they make it feel original through the abundance of talent on display. This is one to watch out for. I would recommend this at any price.
