Just a heads up for those who may have been on the fence about it. It's only $25 this weekend. Great price for it, definitely. I had a lot of fun with it.

Just saw that. If you don't have it, you should definitely get it for that price.

I already have it, but can't play it as my system keeps overheating while running it D:

You try turning down the res? I played it on my 3 year old dell laptop, with a dual core i5, HD4670, and 4gb RAM. I got bad overheating and terrible framerates, even at minimum settings, at 1920x1080. Turned down to 1280x720, and it ran over 40fps solid, with no overheating. Still looked decent too.

I can play games more demanding than sleeping dogs, which is annoying. However i'll try turning the res down and give it another go.

on the fence about it, but definitely thinking about grabbin' it. It's either this or chivalry

Too...Many...Games on my backlog. Plus I'm broke :P Anyways, waiting till it goes lower on price or a deal with all the DLCs included (like the one Steam had some times with Deus Ex HR with the 3 DLCs).

Is the download on Amazon a steam code?

I believe so since Sleeping Dogs is a Steam game as well.

"Do I need a Steam account to run Sleeping Dogs?

Yes, if you dont already have a Steam account you will need to create one by visiting: www.steampowered.com"

I bought it for 35 and in retrospect I wish I waited for a cheaper price. Its not a bad game by any means but I had got my fill of sandbox crazyness from Saints Row the Third and burned out on Sleeping Dogs pretty quick. The pacing of the story is not great and a lot of the side activities are kinda lame. The street races suck with rubber-banding opponents.

It has solid hand-to-hand combat and some fun chase sequences/car chases but its kinda forgettable overall imo.

This game is so underrated and i only heard about this game through you guys, i went on youtube and searched some gameplay for it and it looks great. I've got my eyes on this game that's for sure.

Its over rated imo. Its not crazy enough to beat SR3, not serious enough to beat GTA4 and the fighting mechanics are not good enough to beat batman arkham city. Also the story is kinda crap. It might be worth picking up at some point, but not even at half price.

I think I will wait for Christmas sale. I believe it could drop even lower than that. Besides my friend just gifted me Borderlands 2, so I have that to get through :P

One of this years best games, well worth it at that price.

Was worth it at full price imo and had more fun with it then I did Saints Row 3 or GTA IV, it brought FUN back to sandbox games imo.

Wait for it to hit the bargain bin tbh, game sucks.

Same here, I just wish it was longer. I still like Just Cause 2 more than it as far as sandbox games go, but SD is definitely better than GTA IV and SR3.
