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.
@GriftGFX: Now talk about Unravel and buy it :-) (11 minutes ago)
@asdfg: The response to dmg charging ults while heroes are being healed makes less sense the more I think about it.. it's just one more way to prevent players from making mistakes (29 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: It is a game that deserves to be bought day 1. These games need our support. That studio is really talented. (34 minutes ago)
We're going to wind up doing stopwatch for ranked.. but rounds are so short that they could totally do best 2-out-of-3 instead (38 minutes ago)
@asdfg: Shortest attacking game I've had was under two minutes :D Tracer + Genji point rush FTW (39 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Maps can still be over in 2 minutes unfortunately... (40 minutes ago)
Guess I shouldn't jump to conclusions. (51 minutes ago)
