I was really surprised with this game.I expected a GTA ripoff, but this game can actually stand on it's own.It even does some things better than GTA.The story may be standard undercover cop fare but it is told effectively and is well paced.Where this game shines as far as open world games go are as follows...
1) Driving missions are a blast.With good controls and great visuals.Better than GTA.
2) Character animations are very good.Running ,fighting and moving through the environments are best in this genre.I didn't even mind that gun fights(the default combat mode for most games)are not as frequent in this game.Hand to hand combat is really well done.
3) Characters are well developed and voice acted well.
Some aspects where the game falls a little short are as follows...
1) The open world seems small as u go through the game compared to GTA.
2) Side missions become repetitive fast (this may be addressed with dlc).
3) The main story is short.
The game is a definite buy.I really hope there's a part 2 in the works.
I played the demo for this game
hello I played the demo for sleeping dogs and it is the best game ever but their is one complaint it is that you half to kill people to gain your life back which is a bit stupid but the under cover part is awsome and the open world gameplay nothing in this game is like any other get this game!
A Great Approach on this Game Style
I love the Eye-candy(On the PC!) which on maxed setting is really nice looking and very smooth. The game it's self "IS'" a GTA rip off but not a bad one. Good story that could have been a lot worse. But I rally have a hard time with no GUNS, period! Undercover officer so I understand the concept but MAN it gets repetitive fist fighting every single time there is a confrontational point in this game. GSP the MMA Star did advise on this game to make the fighting more realistic and exciting. The fighting IS REALLY FUN THO. Feels like a GTA, mafia II mixed with the fighting style from Batman Arkham City. I do like the game and would recommend waiting for price drop.
this game is okay but I can't continue the story:(
I enjoyed the game and im still playing it but my hacking doesn't work so I can't finish the game which soo sucks :(
