Definitely a Sleeper Hit,
This review is from: Sleeping Dogs [Download] (Software Download)
I have been a fan of sandbox games since I first played Grand Theft Auto III and I've been looking for a good sandbox game to hold me over until GTA V comes out. Fortunately for me, Sleeping Dogs is just what I was looking for.
First the positives: The plot is interesting and more complex than most sandbox games. The voice acting is better than the commercials make it seem. One of my favorite things about the game is the emphasis on hand to hand combat. Like others have said, its like the Batman games but even more bad ass. There are still guns in the game but they are treated more like power ups. The "favor" missions are hit and miss, some are fun, while others are quick and easy. The driving in the game is excellent and each car handles differently. The races are more fun because the driving handles so well. The game looks and runs great, even on my mid range PC. There are plenty of graphics options to tweak.
Negatives: The camera moves to fast when driving and his hard to control. This is also the case when on foot.
