Chinese resolution.

  • Summary: Sleeping Dogs is an open-world crime game for busy people. It's not an experience padded with multiple cities or the obligatory "slow living" town at the outskirts of the world map.
  • Pros: A complete edition of an excellent game, Features the best traits of modern melee combat, Condensed version of Hong Kong encourages full game completion, Abundant in Chinese cultural insight (from a Hong Kong perspective)
  • Cons: Minor visual enhancements not enough to encourage a return visit

Sleeping Dogs Review (PC)

Softpedia
19 November 2012
  • Conclusion: It’s hard to form a strong conclusion about Sleeping Dogs because the game is an elusive creature that needs time to reveal its true nature and only does so via analogies with other titles and via small bursts of innovation that could almost go undetected.
  • Pros: + Hand-to-hand combat, + Some character development, + Hong Kong as a character
  • Cons: - Driving, - Main plot progression, - Lacks originality

  • Summary: Sleeping Dogs started life as True Crime: Hong Kong , a throwback to the fantastic titles during the PS2 era. Back when checking it out under this title it looked a little ropey, character animations weren't fluid and the combat was sub-par.

  • 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.
