"The game's setting is unique, its presentation is generally stellar and its gameplay a lot of fun"

Don't miss out on one of the biggest sleeper hits of 2012.

Sleeping Dogs didn't have an easy birth. It started life as the next instalment in the True Crime series, but after stunted growth, Activision aborted the project. Square Enix adopted the title, renamed it, and took over development duties. A risky...

Combat is brutal and flows brilliantly.

There is Grand Theft Auto and then there is everything else. Sure, Assassin's Creed and inFAMOUS do traversal better and Saint's Row has more varied missions, but no one excels at world building in the way Rockstar does. From the breakthrough hit of...

Between its fantastic combat, shooting, presentation, storytelling, and RPG elements, Sleeping Dogs has just raised the demands for what it'd take for GTAV to get the throne back. Good luck, Rockstar.

Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Tony Jaa, Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal (OK, perhaps to a lesser extent for those last two) are undisputed martial arts masters one and all. But you can add Sleeping Dogs' Wei Shen to that list, as from the moment he...

It's hard to believe that this almost got canned. United Front Games has crafted a stunning open-world action romp that draws on a variety of cinematic influences to startling effect. Sleeping Dogs is by no means perfect, but at times, it comes...

Sleeping Dogs is one of 2012's biggest surprises. And when I say surprises, I mean that in the best way possible.

I’m not sure why more people aren’t paying attention to Sleeping Dogs, but now that the game’s out, hopefully you won't make the same mistake. Sleeping Dogs did things that wowed me from the moment I started playing, and it never really stopped. A few...

Imagine this: an open world crime-thriller game where you play as a single protagonist that gets wrapped up between the law and a bunch of criminals. Wouldn't that be something? All facetiousness aside, I'm an open world gaming enthusiast. I think they...

The city is crowded, bustling with people going about their daily lives. Bright lights surround you and bathe you in their fluorescent and neon glow. There is a distinct disparity in the economic health of the citizens in the different neighborhoods....

With that being my major gripe, however, I can quite happily say the rest of the game impressed at the very off-set, and continued to do so in increasing intensity as I continued to play. In hand-to-hand combat, something United Front and Square Enix...

Why don't you have a pork bun in your hand?!

Appreciate the Cantonese (and the swearing); Decent cast of characters; Solid melee combat, adequate gunplay; Visually impressive open world of Hong Kong; Plenty of side tasks and missions; Social Hub, including mission replay

but the transitions into English are awkward; ...despite lack of character depth; No difficulty setting; Few game-freezing glitches

On a purely personal gripe, I despise the game's attempt to dumb down Hong Kong mahjong into its variation of mahjong poker, which is essentially Yahtzee and as far as I'm concerned should have been played with mahjong dice instead of tiles anyway. If...

Twenty years ago, videogames would be judged solely on one thing: how fun they were to play. Yet “fun” has in recent times become a dubious compliment, a word that suggests archaic thrills in the place of refinement and sophistication. Other art-forms...

There are many other sidequests and collectibles that litter the game that I haven’t touched upon, and Wei has a variety of meters besides his “face” that can be gradually upgraded and improved. But these are oddities you should discover for yourself....
