Sleeping Dogs has been a pleasant surprise.

I am sorry TC but I don't think you have seen Second Son on an actual TV playing. Yeah it might be 30fps but graphically speaking Sleeping Dogs at 1440p 60fps (how I played it) did not impress me at all, SS however is so breathtaking, and plus it is a way better game.

Yeah, Sleeping Dogs actually was a fantastic game. Enjoyed it enough to burn through it, go collectable hunting, get 100% completion and start going back and forth with friends on the little random feats/challenge leaderboards.

How many parking meters can YOU bash with your door in one combo?! Not to mention spending 20 minutes driving around in circles on the freeway at max speed without hitting anything.

All told, I got around 40 hours out of it, and that's only counting having a couple of the smaller DLCs. Eventually you do run out of stuff to collect or do, and just free roaming *does* lose it's appeal, but until that happens it's quite an enjoyable game.

I considered Sleeping Dogs a version of GTA thats actually fun. Yes, I just said I hate GTA. I hate the style and its influence. Its a game for teenagers. Sleeping Dogs was a bit more entertaining, though I certainly didn't waste my time with all the side crap (how incredibly boring can you make your stuff, really). Going through the main game was fun enough, though. Once. Not ever playing it again though.

I completely ABHOR sandbox games like GTA but Sleeping Dogs did it for me. Great fighting mechanics, shooting was ridiculously fun when done right (gunkata, gun fu, etc). Great storyline that didn't take itself way too seriously. Great experience overall.

I dont like the driving in sleeping dogs, but everything else more then make up for that.

I didn't play Sleeping Dogs until a month or 2 ago when it was free on Xbox 360. I ended up loving the game though. It had a pretty good story and pretty fun gameplay but i think what made me really like it is that is was so different than GTA. It was really cool to have a game like GTA take place in the East instead of the West.

My game of 2012, loved it so much, I actually liked the driving also though, especially the action parts.

*gasps* No Jake no! Are you telling us that you hate something? No Jake this isn't the Jake we all know. My mind has been blown, my world is upside down. I..just...I just can't believe what I've read here today cause it's just...ya know such a real, genuine, sincere shock to me that jake-sf doesn't like something. I mean you're just so positive and cheerful and always have just the nicest things to say about everything in this world.

IS THIS REAL? AM I DREAMING? IS THIS A NIGHTMARE? WHERE AM I?! WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME!???!

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS ALTERNATE REALITY THAT YOU ARE SUBJECTING ME TO!!
