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.
@Sdarts: I hope the story gets better. The action is not important for me. The story about Protheus eg. Well, that ended quickly. So what was the point? (33 minutes ago)
It is much more about drama than action, which might turn down some people. But the action is very good in my opinion. (48 minutes ago)
@droezelke: There is, at the surface it is about finding Malcolm's daughter, but underneath it is about all these supernatural characters' stories and how they interact with each other. (49 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: But what is about? It's just some famous fictional characters in 1 show. But there is no story arc. (56 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: It really is kinda sad the problems with that game. Even after that patch it has game breaking bugs and a far from super framerate on X1 in places. (56 minutes ago)
@droezelke: Absolutely!!!!! Episode 7 is my favorite of the 1st season. (1 Hour ago)
@Moonwalker: No, it got better, way better after the v1.01 patch. But the game on disc - which is v1.0 - is really, really bad on both visual and performance. (1 Hour ago)
