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.
This game might seem like a GTA clone at first sight, but it does everything to stand out on its own as an amazing game. The game revolves around you being an undercover cop bringing down the Triad, a welcome new story in the genre. However, it gets a bit annoying at times being a cop as those missions just aren't as fun as the badass Traid missions. The fighting system is pretty simplistic, but very satisfying and fun. The game is just nicely built, the atmosphere is great, and the setting is just a nice breath of fresh air. The story can be pretty predictable at times, but other times it can put you on the edge of your seat. The DLCs are pretty nice, even though the cop one is a bit underwhelming (Year of the Snake). The Nightmare one is pretty fun and everything. Overall, this game is completely worth it, I recommend buying it.
A very good game, it's very addictive and enjoyable to play. I recommend if you enjoy open world games like GTA and Saints Row, it's simular to that, but unlike those games that are US based, Sleeping Dogs is refreshingly oriental, based in Hong Kong. With good martial arts combat. This is a open world game, with martial arts, crime, street racing, gambling, with main missions, various side quests and hunting for collectibles. You don't get to use guns till later on. Sleeping Dogs is one of those rare games that everybody loves, and every recommend to each other, but somehow no one has ever played it ( as far as you know). So I picked it up during a sale after it had been sitting on my wish list for a long time, and wow. I personally still haven't finished the main storyline because I simply don't want it to end. I treat myself to a story mission every now and then, like a delicious slice of cake on the weekend. But while the story itself is quite serious, as gangsters usually are, the story does make plenty of room for a bit of humor, and especially nods to Hong Kong action movies. The combat is unique and fun, the world vibrant and interesting, the characters complex, the story great. Please play Sleeping Dogs, so you can start recommending it to your friends who will also wait months to actually do so, like you did.
