Overall, Sleeping Dogs provides a very fun open-world gameplay experience for the 10+ hour campaign (with additional time for side missions). In addition, since launch there have been 5 DLC packs to come out if you find yourself looking to extend your...

PCIt's the year 2013, and there's no shortage of third-person open-world action games to choose from. It's a genre some say was perfected years ago with PS2-era Grand Theft Auto games. So how does a game with a rocky past, at least three name changes,...

It would be easy to pigeon-hole Sleeping Dogs as yet another Grand Theft Auto (GTA) clone. Apart from being set in Hong Kong, there initially seems to be very little else to distinguish it from Rockstar's infamous open-world crime series. It has a...

Sleeping Dogs didn't have an easy birth. It started life as the next instalment in the True Crime series, but after stunted growth, Activision aborted the project. Square Enix adopted the title, renamed it, and took over development duties. A risky...

Sleeping Dogs began as an original intellectual property by developer United Front Games, which was later changed to True Crime: Hong Kong as a decision from Activision in hopes the name would draw more interest and potential sales. After the...

About the highest praise I can think of for a game is that it makes you feel something. More often than not, it's simple emotions – happiness and joy, or sadness, even anger. Sleeping Dogs does all that and more, but it takes an interesting step...

Sleeping Dogs has had a mildly rocky past. It was originally being developed as a brand new IP called Black Lotus before it became a new installment in the True Crime series. Then, after multiple delays and budgets issues, the game was dropped by...

Oh, now I get it: it's a metaphor! Most of what Sleeping Dogs, an open-world homage to the Hong Kong action film of the '80s and '90s, lacks in literal canines it makes up with a respectably well-told story, strong martial arts combat, energetic...

If you've ever had a chance to spend a few days in Hong Kong, and have gone for a wander around some of the less salubrious parts of town, there's a host of sensory detail you'll doubtless remember. There's the smell of small, crowded alleyways; the...
