At first I would like to thank United Front Games for honestly being one of the top game developers. Sleeping Dogs was one of the best games I’ve played in a while and I’m saying this as a big gamer.
The game was visualized so beautifully that it actually makes you want to visit a Hong Kong. Open world games usually don’t look like this and never really focus on the martial arts like this game does. The gun battles are like none other, the story line is complex yet fascinating to a point where the player is amused by everything going on, that some people who’ve played this game have actually visited Hong Kong due to the games realistic, and life like features.
The developers took care of this game like no other pc game has been done before, the quality by far the most realistic. The nylon lights, the beautiful streets of Hong Kong, the amazing dialog – you really can’t ask for anything better. I love how they mixed the Chinese and North American cultures together and how free they were at expressing their love for herbal tea and their famous “pork buns”.
The Sleeping Dogs developers put a great effort in their research while taking on this project. I was amazed at how great the martial arts in this game were. As kids we all grew up watching Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee movies – with this game you actually feel your childhood kicking in and you feel like you’re in the middle of Hong Kong fighting those great battles with Hong Kong gangsters.
The guns battles are amusing, you can pick form a selection of different weapons. One of my favorite weapons was the fish – yes fish! The game allows you to pick up a real fish and hit enemies with it which I’ve found hysterical. Cars are based on the cars seen on Need For Speed which I thought was really cool and it worked great.
