Sleeping Dogs Review (PC)

Softpedia
29 October 2012
  • 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.

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

Empire Online
25 September 2012
  • Summary: Sleeping Dogs is a game reliant wholly on the strength of its influences. Its open world sandbox and fundamental mechanics are cribbed straight from Grand Theft Auto, its combat is a sharp take on Arkham Asylum’s brutal ballet of kicks and punches, and its story is pulled from the likes of Infernal Affairs and City On Fire.

  • Excerpt: Initialement conçu pour être le nouveau True Crime, Spleeping Dog a été lâché par Activision avant que Square Enix ne se présente comme repreneur providentiel. Une action intéressée pour l’éditeur nippon et surtout intéressante pour les joueurs. Apparemment le choix d’Activision s’appuyait sur un constat simple : ce titre n’a aucune chance de détrôner GTA, que ce soit dans le cœur des joueurs ou en tête des ventes. Et il faut admettre que cela se tient.

Sleeping Dogs: Year of the Snake Review

InsideGamer
13 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Dat Year of the Snake een betere uitbreiding is dan Nightmare in North Point, moge duidelijk zijn. Toch wordt de DLC geplaagd door dezelfde mankementen als de originele game en de korte spelduur zorgt ervoor dat je nergens het idee hebt te worden meegesleept in het verhaal. Daarvoor moeten we helaas hopen op een (spiritueel) opvolger van Sleeping Dogs.
  • Pros: Actie bevat genoeg variatie
  • Cons: Minder meeslepend door relatief korte lengte, Mist op sommige vlakken – nog steeds - afwerking
