    The game is slow for the first hour or so, but things really got interesting after that. Overall it is very good; for an open-world game, I give it a 9/10. Also, the soundtrack is amazing.

    I am enjoying it as well... very fun even if it does play like GTA.

    The HD texture pack is a must have too!

    I bought the game on PC, and it's very fun and worth your gaming time. Maybe the reason for the wonky camera was that United Front Games hates the free movement like in GTA IV and Saints Row The Third, which is evident on the PC version.

    I give it a 9.5. (Cool martial arts action, graphics are eye-candy on DX11 support, voice acting and presentation is top-notch. But the wonky camera is indeed frustrating)

    To sum up, screw you Activision.

    When I installed the sleeping dogs demo on steam I try to start it but the window saying that its going to launch in a moment goes away in a split second and nothing ever happens can anyone explain what is happening if someone does I will greatly appreciate it.

    Wait, how do you verify cache? I'm having the same problem with it not starting up.

    Downloaded the game and couldn't stop playing. I come back the next day and it won't even launch. It just stays at the screen with the developer logos >:p
