Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world's most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside... the Hong Kong Triads.

As players explore the bustling and crowded Hong Kong island, through its neon-lit side streets and sprawling street markets, an incredible story unfolds of loyalty and betrayal, where Wei begins to question his own motives as he is sucked in deeper than he could ever imagine.

Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbour dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat.

Featuring one of the most intuitive and imaginative combat systems, Sleeping Dogs empowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, singlehandedly taking on numerous opponents.

Players perform bone-crunching kicks and combos, vicious counters and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns making use of countless real-world items from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator doors.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

  • A mature and gritty undercover cop drama, set in a high tension underworld where every action is a risk that could blow your cover
  • Seamless explosive action fueled by a mix of deadly martial arts, intense gunfights and brutal takedowns
  • Epic high-speed thrills: Burn up the streets as you ram other cars and drive recklessly while shooting your way through the narrow streets of Hong Kong
  • Hong Kong is your playground: Enter illegal races, gamble on cock fights, or kick back with some karaoke. There are countless ways to explore the varied districts of the city.

 A Few Rough Edges but an Entertaining Open-World Adventure

| | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468)

Top 100  Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer

After a protracted development, which at one point saw the game planned as the next instalment in the True Crime series, United Front Games eventually found a publisher for their open world action-adventure title in Square Enix. Sleeping Dogs difficult development is certainly evident in the games rough edges that occasionally see vehicles or enemies appear from nowhere or the player character finding their body ghosting through objects in the game world. Despite this slight lack of polish it is hard to imagine many gamers not finding the game thoroughly entertaining.

The obvious point of comparison is of course the Grand Theft Auto series and while it doesn't quite match up to Rockstars epics it does improve upon them in some ways. The Hong Kong setting for example makes a welcome change from the usual US based cities. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing but the more sparing availability of guns allows for an increased focus on hand to hand combat. Clearly influenced by the recent Batman games this combat goes a long way to making the game as enjoyable as it is.

All in all, regardless of its rough edges, Sleeping Dogs is certainly worth playing.

What can I say, i loved it! The gameplay and graphics are awesome. Both which are topped off with an amazing and intense storyline. Bought at full price and was worth every penny. Favourite game of 2012 so far!

 Amazing!!!

One of the most action packed games I have ever played in my life. Everything about it is just so entertaining! The fighting especially is brilliant. I bought at full price for 38 pounds and i dont regret it at all. Was well worth the money. great story that pulls you in all the way through with constant twists,. If you are a fan of Gta, you will love this!
