I have no idea how I missed out on this game. It's amazing. The combat might be the best I've ever played in this type of game. It's like arkham city type combat except deeper and more fun(and I always thought the batman games had the best combat). The story and setting is a breath of fresh air as well. Anyone who hasn't played this, I highly recommend giving it a shot.

I got it for PC around January and ended up loving it. I would never say the combat is deeper than Batman, but it's fun nonetheless. I found myself ignoring missions to find fights on the street. I only wish I got it earlier because I would have bought some of the dlc when it was on the steam sale.

The knee break and wall kick made me happy.

How does SD and its combat compare to the Yakuza games?

Not really at all. The combat is like Arkham Asylum/City.

Tough call.

Yakuza is awesome in a virtua fighter kind of style whereas SD is like a batman style.

Yakuza is alot more brutal but sleeping dogs captures the combat of HK film very well.

Yakuza is my favourite series of all time and I thoroughly loved SD.

Yakuza fights like an arcade fighting game or traditional beat em up. Sleeping dogs is similar to batman. Sleeping dogs is more realistic, a bit more methodical, and less brutal. Yakuza has a lot more moves.

Rented it when it came out and didn't like it.
Bought it a couple weeks ago to give it another chance and I still couldn't get into it. Got most of my money back when I sold it though.
