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.
@jmd749: That scene with them two and the baby though, really good scene that. (2 Hours ago)
yea, i have a feeling it won't be any kind of seamless campaign, more like different missions all related to the same story-arc (2 Hours ago)
the whole unlocked single player missions has me worried about the flow of the narrative though. maybe it's more like left 4 dead this time around? (2 Hours ago)
unless you want to take all 60 or whatever weapons out at one time there really is no reason to have them all unlocked. people simply buy the guns they want. akimbo smg's. ak47. whatever. (2 Hours ago)
a few hours and you would be playing the final mission of the campaign, even without the everting-is-unlocked -from-the-start :) (2 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: you could buy and use whatever you like in those few hour play. few hours more and you could buy whatever you fancied again. (2 Hours ago)
but anyways, it's no secret most fps devs want the singleplayer experience dead and buried. The future is (sadly) multiplayer only. (2 Hours ago)
