    This game really grows on you the more you play

    Rated on September 10, 2012 by theycallmeRP

    Rented it through Gamefly, wasn't expecting too much. The game starts a little flat in my opinion. Your kind of thrown into this weird gunless world with quirky humor mixed with roided thugs, karaoke,...

    SD is another GTA ripoff. with that "special little something" of neon Hong Kong nightlife, and stuff.<br />

    Rated on September 11, 2012 by eze_sl89

    SD takes you in place of Wei undercover officer. You embark yourself in an "not so epic" adventure full of thrilling and martial art combat. Shooting, on the other hand, is not so frequent but enjoyab...

    OK but frustrating that mission checkpoints are spaced so far apart.

    Very fun game, but not without small drawbacks.

    Rated on December 30, 2012 by Warsilver

    It didn't take me very long to complete Sleeping Dogs. I hadn't collected every single collectible, but I played and replayed all the missions and side missions. I compared this game a lot to the GTA ...

    Sleeping Dogs' riveting story, excellent gameplay and involving vision of Hong Kong make it the surprise of the year.

    Rated on May 06, 2013 by Mikey2K10

    Sleeping Dogs has a very interesting development history. Once envisioned as the third game in the True Crime series, True Crime: Hong Kong was in development for over eighteen months. Despite its rep...

    Really fun game along the lines of GTA!!

    Rated on January 17, 2013 by wallyk

    I love this game. It plays alot like a GTA game but with more martial arts and less gun play. The driving isn't quite as good as it should be but it does include hundreds of different cars, buses, m...

    Pros: unique Far East setting, engaging main storyline, plenty of trophies to keep you busy; brutal, satisfying combat; varied and interesting side missions; great voice acting. Cons: a few bugs a...
