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?
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.
Excerpt: Square Enix and United Front games are sending players to Hong Kong in a new open world experience. Do the notorious Triad controlled streets of Hong Kong make it worthwhile, or have the dogs already fallen asleep? Find out in this review.
Pros: Indulging Story.
Cons: Screen tearing and Frame Rate issues can occur.
Conclusion: Nevertheless, even with the despicable lack of Old Salty Crab content in Sleeping Dogs, it is definitely worth your time. It’s fun to run about beating people up, sing Karaoke and jump from car to car and it is made even better by Sleeping Dogs’ excellent story and characters.
Excerpt: Certe volte i gioconi arrivano dove meno te li aspetti, dai contesti più improbabili. Mentre tutti abbandonano ogni speranza di sfidare realmente Rockstar sul suo territorio, con per esempio Saint's Row che ha riscosso successo proprio mirando fortissimo in direzione opposta, United Front Games mostra invece un coraggio da leoni, lanciando un potente guanto di sfida al colosso di Dan Houser.
