  • Excerpt: It's the year 2013, and there's no shortage of third-person open-world action games to choose from. It's a genre some say was perfected years ago with PS2-era Grand Theft Auto games. So how does a game with a rocky past, at least three name changes, and a major development shift stand a chance? Can Sleeping Dogs stand out in a crowd?

  • Conclusion: This week I have been lost deep in the underworld of the Triads in the latest open world action title Sleeping Dogs, a game that has suffered and survived a tremendous amount of setbacks throughout its development that on several occasions nearly saw it locked away in development hell for ever, but alas, here it is ready to play.

Sleeping Dogs Review

  • Excerpt: Much like the Hong Kong cinema it lovingly recreates, Sleeping Dogs adheres vehemently to genre. Instead of trying to reinvent the open-world game, United Front's once-troubled tale sits squarely inside the city limits defined by Grand Theft Auto, happy to cultivate memorable moments on and around well worn roads.

  • Excerpt: Winston Chu has a bulging, tattooed body, a gold-plated gun and a massive square head. He’s a gangster, so that face is locked into a permanent scowl, a symptom of years of steroid abuse and a childhood under the fist of a psychotic mother with an unhealthy love of cleavers. Welcome to life in the triads. Mrs Chu is your mother, too, in a sense. You’re Wei Shen, undercover cop, on a mission to bring down the triads from the inside.

  • Excerpt: Sleeping Dogs is a fantastic game that does nothing to move the genre forward, but does enough to stand out on its own thanks to its distinct setting, great cast of characters and excellent gameplay. There is enough here to keep you busy for a while, and even with its shortcomings, the main story missions are full of plenty of fun moments and surprises. Even if you are sick of open-world action games, this is one that would be hard to pass up.

  • Conclusion: Overall, Sleeping Dogs is a lot better game than I think most people would ever have thought a year ago. While not perfect, the game does a lot right, and it does it differently enough to make it stand out from the crowd. Whether it’s the interesting setting, the cheesy-cool plot and characters, or the visceral combat, there’s something for anyone with even meagre interest in the genre.
  • Pros: An interesting setting, a tone that strikes the right balance between corny and genuine, brutal melee combat, fun vehicle driving and combat.
  • Cons: Some shaky animations, graphics that leave something to be desired, occasional camera problems, uninspired gunplay, and some streaks of dull missions towards the game’s end.

  • Summary: The rain seems to be close to disintegrating the entire city around me, but as my character pushes his scooter to the limit, I need to keep my concentration up and make sure that I avoid any obstacles and pedestrians on the way to my target.
  • Pros: + Hand-to-hand combat, + Some character development, + Hong Kong as a character
  • Cons: - Driving, - Main plot progression, - Lacks originality

  • Conclusion: Once upon a time Activision went through a massive purge and started canceling titles left and right. No title was safe from their metaphorical shredders as they removed titles like Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk from their release list.  Amongst that bonfire of canceled games was True Crime: Hong Kong. Later, Square Enix realized what an amazing title True Crime: Hong Kong could have been, so they bought it and decided to develop it with United Front Games.
