It's decent. You'd probably enjoy it if you're a GTA fan.

Haven't played it, but isn't it optimized for next gen? If I was truly interested in it, I'd play the best version possible. If you agree, I'd wait until next gen drops.

Sleeping Dogs, not Watch Dogs :)

 

And yes, it's a greatly entertaining game, not without a few tedious flaws though.

Thanks for the (polite) correction. Shows how much I know about games with 'dogs' in the title :cool:

I gotta say, Sleeping Dogs is a nice game, I've played it a while ago and I had alot of fun.

Fighting is quite entertaining.

I pirated it when it came out, it's a great game but doesn't deserve a purchase. Why? Because it was pumped out with so much of that DLC rubbish to the point that you get a tiny portion of what the game was supposed to be. I wouldn't support that kind of stuff if I were you, because it seems Rockstar took a hint from cutting content to re-sell it as new. If you buy the game, you're supporting companies cutting 50% or more of their game out.

 

The game itself does a great representation of Hong Kong, but unfortunately, you can't go into the large mountain areas, as well as some other areas, so it's not a true free roam game. The animations are great and very smooth, and the PC one is optimised amazingly. In free roam though, there's not a huge amount of things to do, there are lots of nice things, but you can't do them forever, and the lack of total exploration of the map is disappointing, there's no planes or helicopters either. The wanted system is broken like in GTA V, the police cars will even spawn on an island way out from the city when you go to it... The game does feature good characters, and many mechanics are done very nicely. There are lots of vehicles, but the driving is heavily arcade.

 

So, in the end, it's not worth buying, but it's worth playing.

It was free on PSplus a few months back. Its only worth it free. I thought it was garbage. Terrible driving mechanics and boring story. Its a wonder it was rated so high...

Very fun combat system but once you get through the main story there's not much to keep you playing.

But some people really like it and I guess you should give it a try

The only thing you can do after the storyline is just hack surveillance cameras to perform drug busts. But the story was pretty good.

It is a really enjoyable game. To begin with i wasn't that 'sold' on it but by the time i had finished i loved it.

 

Price i can't complain got it cheap when it was on steam sale. Driving i myself found to be fun, but due to being so used to having free roam games, where you drive on the 'wrong side' of the road, it took time to get used to that for me. But even then, i always drive on the left most of the time in any of them :p

 

Performance for me on the PC version to begin with was terrible as kept crashing, until i installed it to a different hard drive. If the PC version i suggest using a 360 pad for the fighting/ driving as it does make it easier.

 

Also again if PC version you are after wait till a sale on Get Games Go, Green Man Gaming, Gamers Gate or Steam.

Yes it is worth buying.

Overall it is a very good game with a setting that is not really touched by other game companies. The limited gun play made the game what it is for me. The story is ok, and the writing is very cliche. However the actual story missions are so much fun and very well thought out. The overall gameplay (from fighting to driving) is tight but not very deep. There are multiple collectibles that actually give you advantages in the game, but there is not much replay ability after that.

 

If you're expecting GTA V or RDR level production you're gonna be disappointed, however the game is good and fun to play.

I was a fan of the True Crime series and was very interested when SD was announced (aka True Crime Hong Kong). In the end i was satisfied with the game. The story was great (plot and length wise) gameplay was fine, driving is very arcadey and you will be disappointed if you like a lot of damage when crashing. After the main story is done there isn't really much to do other than Drug busts, not many "open world" elements to it after the story is is done. Another thing i don't like is the amount of DLC they've released. I wouldn't pay more than $40 for it.

It's fun for a day or two at the most. After doing the story and a few bonus stuff you probably wont touch the game again, it's a good game while it lasts though.

I personally found Sleeping Dogs quite entertaining for a few hours, but I only turned it back on 3, maybe 4 times. Never completed it, never will. 

 

The driving physics are pretty awful. The character animations are clunky, though some of the unarmed combat is pretty good. Don't think I ever got a gun, I'd given up before then. 

 

I'd say only buy it if you can get a serious low-price on it.

Wow you just lost all credibility cuz it has one of the best stories ever in a video game hands down and the fighting was awesome too. To use the environment as a weapon was genius

Agreed.  Mindless button mashing during fights.  Terrible game.  Looks beautiful, however, as the graphics and color schemes are great.  Terrible gameplay.
