How we rate the games?
Sleeping Dogs is a third person shooting game. It reminds me somewhat of Tomb Raider Legend and Assassin's Creed because of the actions. You are basically a guy who breaks the law and in the same time the police is on your side. They will help you to get out of jail to do bad deeds, but you will risk your own life. I think that the story is somewhat based in real life, since these things are known to happen. I have never played True Crime, but it is said that this game is just a rename of it, since the developers company didn't buy its rights.
The game idea is to have as much open world environment as possible to do whatever you want and to be as much free of your actions as possible, just like GTA. Basically, the game is just a mix of a lot of games, so you will have to deal with a lot of action, free world gameplay. Since the theme is chinese, you will have to deal with chinese-american enemies.
You will have plenty of actions to perform, like kicking, punching, grabbing and much more. I don't like the idea that you defeat 5 or more people when you are alone, because that sounds like Assassin's Creed gameplay which was the worst thing that could happen. Even though that is not so good, there are more things you will be able to do. The game graphics are very good, with directx 11 bundled in. The user interface is very charming, especially the welcome screen where you have some good lightnings on each selected option. You will find all advanced stuff in the game graphics core, so there is nothing more to say, since it is the latest technology used in the makings.
The story starts with some guys trying to sell drugs, when a security guards comes in and the guy you are trying to sell drug to, kills him but you get in more trouble. The police comes to you and you start running with your friend trying to escape, with no success. Even though you get caught, you are put into jail, met a friend and made a deal with him, meanwhile you are put into the interrogation chamber, where polices disable the camera and start talking to you about some deals. You go and meet your friend you made a deal in the jail and directly start a fight, where you defeat your enemies and you learn some techniques too.
Overall the game is good enough to impress everyone, just the idea that enemies stare at you all the time is really awkward. If you really like open world games, action or some more gameplay, this game is just for you, but I recommend this game to every type of gamer.
