Sleeping Dogs is pretty darn good.

I rented it last month online and barely touched it...
I decided to give it a go this week, since I'm wasting money for nothing O_o.
So it starts a little slow, maybe a good 30 minutes to 1 hour before it starts picking up.
And then the game really surprises me how diverse the missions are. Heck there's even a cheesy rockband clone lol. Really solid game from the fighting and even the shooting blows away gta.
If you like GTA but more fun, a little more arcade but not over the top like Saints Row... It's a great game so far. 8.5/10 for me.

I'm playing on ps3 and yup the textures are muggy and on the 360 it's a lot nicer, I checked lens of truth videos and there's a big difference. But still a great game none the less.

For $20 to 30$ it's a steal.

It's a good game. I wouldn't call it pretty good though. Why is everyone Californian?

It's supposed to take place in Hong Kong and everyone speaks like it is San Francisco or Los Angeles. Then the Cantonese is horrible.

Fine. Main characters besides that cop with the English accent who actually feels Honk Kongian.

Have you checked how it looks with the HD texture pack on PC? One of the best looking games I have played.

Its good. It lacked the depth/replayabilty I like in those kinds of games though. A next gen sequel would be fire

Oh gawd, so addictive.

I couldn't stop playing last night until my game crashed and I had to quit.

I can't believe I have to waste my signature to tell people New Super Mario Bros. could be a lot better.
