Sleeping Dogs Game Review Created by dgallagher on 2/16/2013 11:04:12 AM
Sleeping Dogs pits players as an undercover cop attempting to infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad in Hong Kong. Using any means necessary, players must bash, shoot, and drive their way to earn the trust of the Triad so that they can bring it down from the inside out. It comes together exceptionally well and makes for one of the most fun open world experiences in a long time. With a cast featuring big names like Lucy Liu, Emma Stone, and Tom Wilkinson, the cinematic direction of the story flows wonderfully, creating a pacing that kept me engulfed in what would happen next until the brutally-violent final act. Between the wonderfully acted story and the tight car and gunplay, Sleeping Dogs is an exceptional open-world crime drama that ups the ante for cinematic story presentations -- and execution moves -- in games. All in all it gets a 4/5 on the DanO scale...def worth picking up!
