Sleeping Dogs aka True Crime Hong Kong
 
Anyone else pick this up? So far the story is pretty bad *** and the fighting and missions pretty fun. I needed a sandbox game and this fills that void quite nice. Some wonky things but those can be easily fixed via patches.

i find it to be an unrealistic portrayal of hong kong gangs lol.

they don't fist fight irl, they meat cleaver fight. :old:

definitely looks like a ton of fun though, but i'll have to wait for holiday sale to buy it, i just spent $30 on dayz.

Not to be a spoiler but one of the first boss fights, if you want to call it that, dude has a flipping big *** steak knife. Oh and in the opening scenes a dude is attacked with a, wait for it, meat cleaver!!

I was torn between this and Darksiders II and my store was out of DSII so I grabbed this and I have yet to regret it. It really is open ended and a fun sandbox game with a metric ton of side quests apart from the main story to keep you busy.

I love games like that
Just Cause 2 was like that and that game was epic

So picked it up its pretty fun

but can some one tell me how the hell to keep a weapon haha
need to grab a cop to take his gun and out run the cops to have it for a while
I think a holster on your back for the bigger guns would be needed

Yeah, you can't keep the guns usually. The game focuses more on hand to hand, but they tend to supply a gun when you need one for a firefight. I just grab a tire iron out of the trunk and tool on people's heads, almost as easy.

My only major gripes with the game are two:

1 - The camera completely sucks when driving. It's awful when you are changing direction.
2 - Doing drug busts in firefights and watching thugs literally spawn out of thin air right behind you. Sometimes they'll do it right in front of your face, it's ridiculous.

The story has been pretty solid, and now that I bought a Velocita and can tear around Hong Kong at maximum speed (though the Lamborghini seems to have slightly better control despite being the 2nd fastest) with reckless abandon. The game is for the most part, on par with GTA IV in overall quality. Does some things better, but it's a newer game too.
