When Square-Enix first contacted us regarding our copy of Sleeping Dogs, we thought we had a good chance to be able to write a full review. But when the game only arrived at Ghost_Deus' den yesterday, it was clear that he would not be able to make it on time for the game's release in Europe today. As you'll see in his videos, United Front Games' title oozes atmosphere and the Hong Kong setting is a nice change from the usual New York City landscape. Although not everything is perfect, it is great to see that the gameplay mechanics work well, especially combat, which is very satisfying. The console versions may not be as sharp as most AAA titles, even considering the open evironment, but they manage to be very immersive nonetheless. On PC, things look much nicer, as proven by the screenshots our good friend onirik took for us.
and smooth animation lacking is not lacking reposnive and no input lag, that it fares very well. (8 Hours ago)
sure, there is a lot of missing smooth animation there. a game of masters of action like platinum games Rising or bayoneta, and you'll start to see it. just bugs me, as it is a long playtrough game (8 Hours ago)
@b0vril: Yeah. One of the good things I can say it had was decent control. (8 Hours ago)
I wasn't so hot on Horizon, but I didn't think it felt "janky" at all. (8 Hours ago)
