Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs, formerly known as True Crime: Hong Kong, was first published by Activision, but cancelled in 2011, then picked up by Square Enix and given a complete reboot.

This game with stunningly rich visuals and a compelling storyline was released on August 14, 2012, and it’s been a fun ride so far.

You play the game as Wei Shen, an undercover police officer who has come back to Hong Kong after spending most of his life in San Francisco, in order to avenge his family’s death, which he blames on the Triad gang Sun On Yee, which is now controlled by all the idiot bullies he hung around with as a kid.

It’s a third-person open-world sandbox, and you get to do all the things you would expect from this genre on foot, motorcycle, or in 4 wheel vehicles, so far I haven’t seen any flying vehicles or watercraft.

It has the most fun mini-games I’ve seen in a while, usually they are just tedious circuit connection repeats, but Sleeping Dogs breaks it up nicely with different types of puzzles.

I often like to watch walkthroughs before purchasing a game, so here are some to give you an idea of what Sleeping Dogs is all about.
