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. Mechanically, the game that United Front Games and Square Enix created is adequate most of the time and even impressive when it comes to the hand-to-hand multi-level battles.
  • 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.

Sleeping Dogs review

GameZone
14 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The story behind the development of Sleeping Dogs is almost as interesting as the stuff you get to do within the game itself.  The game started out being the next planned chapter in Activision's True Crime series, even getting an advertisement through a teaser trailer at the Spike Video Game Awards.

  • Excerpt: It's derivative as hell, but Sleeping Dogs' borrowed ideas are of a high enough quality to form an entertaining open-world experience.

Sleeping Dogs review

Gameplanet
2 January 2013
  • Summary: An open-world game whose main point of difference is its best-in-class melee combat, Sleeping Dogs is a flawed yet often exhilarating ride through the mean streets of Hong Kong.
  • Pros: Strong voice acting, graphics, and sound design. Flawed yet enjoyable fighting, parkour, shooting, and driving mechanics that are well stitched together. Good cutscenes. Fatalities.
  • Cons: Control issues when fighting. Some screen tearing. Occasional bugs. Not much of lasting appeal outside of the main missions.

Test : Sleeping Dogs

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Sleeping Dogs n’a pas eu une enfance joyeuse. Initialement baptisé True Crime : Hong Kong, le titre a finalement été abandonné par Activision. Heureusement, Square Enix a décidé de prendre le bébé de United Front Games sous son aile. Après un changement de nom, le GTA-like à la sauce chinoise est finalement sorti. Square Enix a-t-il eu le nez creux en adoptant Sleeping Dogs ?
  • Pros: Le système de combat jouissif, Un héros charismatique, Une ville que l’on aime parcourir, Des missions de plus en plus intéressantes
  • Cons: Les gunfights pas franchement intéressants, Les quêtes annexes un peu basiques, Les doublages : trop d’anglais et pas assez de chinois !, Techniquement un peu à la ramasse

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition

gamereactor.it
10 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Chiamatela moda. Chiamatela mancanza di idee. Chiamatela necessità di mettere una pezza laddove la next-gen, sbarcata quasi un anno fa, ha lasciato vuoti incolmabili, senza offrire ai giocatori un numero sufficiente di titoli che potesse soddisfare il loro appetito. In un panorama orfano di giochi, il settore videoludico ha dovuto inventarsi un escamotage nel tentativo di tenere a bada il pubblico di appassionati.
  • Pros: Atmosfera eccellente; Ottimo restyling in HD; Tanti contenuti a disposizione; "Invecchiato" molto bene.
  • Cons: Le animazioni dei modelli umani; Persistono problemi di lag nei combattimenti.
