Summary: There is Grand Theft Auto and then there is everything else. Sure, Assassin's Creed and inFAMOUS do traversal better and Saint's Row has more varied missions, but no one excels at world building in the way Rockstar does. From the breakthrough hit of the open world action genre in 2001 to the innovations and insane detail of GTAIV , Rockstar has not only defined the genre but sculpted it for a decade while others just toyed around with it.
Excerpt: A few weeks ago I had posted a blog about how I was finding it harder and harder to sit down and play a game for long periods of time. No matter what the game was, even if it was one of my favorites, I just could not do it. I guess subconsciously I wanted something else; something that combines all of my favorite game elements and could capture my interest and hold onto it for the duration of the storyline.
Pros: Stunning detail, Amazing gameplay/ combat, Great driving action
Excerpt: I really was looking forward to Sleeping Dogs, and now I’m not at all looking forward to writing this review because a game I was so looking forward to is such a black hole of accessibility. United Front and Square Enix put a game worthy of a score of 2 in front of me and now I need to write a review about Sleeping Dogs, Red Bulls and the number two without making all the obvious jokes. Not cool – not at all cool.
Excerpt: Développé par United Front Games et édité par Square Enix, Sleeping Dogs s'apparente à Grand Theft Auto dans son approche, mais également dans son gameplay. Récupérant les bases de True Crime : Hong-Kong, le nom initial du jeu, cette production permet de se plonger dans l'univers de la capitale chinoise, notamment dans les affaires louches des Triades locales.
Summary: Almost every area of the game is done to a high standard making this a highly recommended game that is well worth playing for anyone with an interest in the sandbox style of games or for anyone looking for a game with a solid storyline and fast paced action.
