Great Story line The story line of Sleeping Dogs is by far the best storyline in a game that I have ever played. I found great difficulty putting down the controller because of my urges to know what happened next. The idea of being an undercover cop in a triad gang is exciting to be a part of, and the plot twists make it so much sweeter. While playing I felt like I developed some kind of emotional connection with all the characters, kinda like how everyone got upset when Dom died in Gears of War 3. So to those people who like to play a game for the storyline I highly recommend Sleeping Dogs.
Gameplay The gameplay of Sleeping Dogs had a great feel to it, it was like I was playing a Chinese version of Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row combined. The controls are pretty simple after the tutorial you will have got the hang of it straight away. The fighting in this game was amazing in my opinion, in a way it was a bit like Bull-worth Academy but karate instead of school yard punching. In sleeping dogs depending where you fought there may be a flashing red object for you to use on your opponents (smashing head into telephone booth or shoving head into fan blades etc.) The driving in this game had an arcade type feel to it like saints row, you could jump from car to car and get in high speed cop chases, i always loved driving around in the game causing chaos in Hong Kong
Side Missions Even after you have finished the story there is still plenty more for you to do around Hong Kong, ranging from favors to collectibles Favors: While travelling around Hong Kong you will notice there are people who will need your help or might want to bash you. Races: Think your a good driver? ready for a challenge? head to an orange marker and start a race, may the best driver win Collectibles: There are over 100 items scattered around Hong Kong collect them for bonuses Drug Bust: Hack into some security cameras watch out for a drug deal and send in the police to gain some reputation there is so much to do in this game i guarantee you wont get bored.
So, Great story, Great Gameplay, side missions and more! What else could you want? This game is by far the best game I have ever played, and I am completed satisfied with my purchase. I rate this game 10 out of 10
