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.
"I like it" is pretty favorable considering the criticism I'd unleash.. but that's sorta typical :P (1 Hour ago)
@MikeManiac61: I like it.. but I have too many comments for the what's up box to hold. There's an NDA too, but I'm not really sure why.. so much content from this alpha is already on youtube. (1 Hour ago)
