Have you ever imagine an open world game such as GTA IV,a game where you obtain the knowledge of Kung-fu and other eastern martial arts, and a game where you find yourself working as a undercover police simultaneously?
If you did so, what are you waiting to buy this game?A main story line where you work as an under cover police man in the most dangerous gang organizations in the entire world, the Chinese triads...
Sleeping dogs is a game that combines the power of freedom known in the GTA game series, the use of the environment and knowledge in martial arts to unleash powerful attacks and combos known in many fighting games and most importantly, the perfectly mixed in story line of an under cover police man who will get emotionally attached by his work and the people he interacts with.But, there are few firearms available...
This is true, this isn't america where everything is solved by gunfights or explosions. This is Hong Kong, where strength and skill is valued and measured in epic, pleasant hand-to-hand combats. But even despite that, the use of firearms will depend on your type of game play, and the game will satisfy that lack of weaponry, in amazing breath-taking missions as you progress in the game.Isn't Hong Kong a bad choice for a game like this?
Definitely not, Hong Kong is currently one of the most wealthiest places in the world; It has everything from a deep underground gang network, a gym to practice or learn new moves after completing each task, a club for you to interact with other people and to complete other side objectives, to random optional objectives and events that will appear in-game.How are the graphics and the environment design?
To begin with, the game's designers performed extensive research in Hong Kong to create an accurate portrayal of the city. Art designers spent seven days in Hong Kong, where they studied the city's environment, and took more than 20,000 photos as references for the physical environment in the game. And the result was that many reviewers praised the authenticity and charm of the city in the game.You mentioned the importance of the story line at the beginning, will this mean that after the game story line is completed, there wont be anything else to do?
No, almost all side quests and task will continue to be there, and the game wont change at all in order to preserve it's longevity.
Should I buy this game? and why?
This game is the perfect for anyone who either likes a good detective main story line, an open world sandbox like the GTA game series, and a similar fighting system seem in many fighting genre games.
I would rate this game 81 out of 100, or 4,5 out of 5,0. A masterpiece in mixing both action and adventure gaming genres into one, simply brilliant and well-balanced without looking lame, but truly epic!
