Sleeping Dogs

I just got Sleeping Dogs, an exciting game set in Hong Kong in where you try to conquer the triads and dangerous gangs. Basically: GTA in Hong Kong.

The game feels great. The environment is extremely realistic and it does feel like Hong Kong. Unlike GTA IV, where I quite didn’t have that same feel of it being New York as Sleeping Dogs does with its Hong Kong. When I immediately went on the road with my bike and started driving on the right side of the road I was in for a quite a surprise.

Sleeping Dogs so far feels great for a single player game. I also tried Borderlands 2 but got bored with it immediately in less than 30 minutes. But Sleeping Dogs continues to impress, although it’s limited by technical set backs such as AI, and that the world does feel static to a point. I mean, the same old Chinese lady throwing out a bucket of water over and over again. Come on! I want to experience a next gen sandbox game that truly feels alive. But so far the game is decent despite being held back by technological limitations.

The combat is fun and bloody. If you get hit in the face, you get bruises and eventually bloody cheeks.
