    Sleeping Dogs demo impressions

    EDIT: So I completed it this time. Like others have said, it takes a little while to get used to the melee combat sequences.

    What are your thoughts on the demo?

    Pretty much exactly the same as yours. The the first part had me interested, the second part completely lost my interest around the second/third group of guys.

    The demo for Sleeping Dogs was great. I can't wait to pick up my copy for the PS3.

    Nearly everyone I've talked to about the game with has been loving it. I picked it up a couple days ago, so I didn't have to bother with the demo today. I'm sure its a bit restrictive and only has you doing one or two missions.

    I would highly recommend the full game. At the start, I also had troubles with countering, but as you go on it becomes second-nature and quite easy. Try spamming triangle as soon as you see a red thug, that's what I always do haha. Also, try not to be too confident and throwing all the punches. Try waiting for the enemies to strike first, with your thumb on the triangle button at the ready.

    If you absolutely despised the demo, then I can't tell you to dish out $60 for the game. However, I will say that the game, at least IMO, is very impressive, one of my favorites of the year, and if you're any sort of a fan of open-world games, its worth a shot.

    I bought the game on 360 yesterday and I'm loving it. Its like GTA with martial arts. And it even has RPG elements with Triad xp and cop xp depending on what missions youre playing as you spend xp points on new abilities. I struggled with countering at first but now I'm pretty good and I've gotten pretty good at fighting groups of attackers. I cant speak for anybody else but I'm really enjoying this game.

    I'm sure a lot of people are enjoying it. Using the triangle button when a thug is highlighted red doesn't always work. Especially when you're surrounded.

    Anyways, I'll give it another try tomorrow.

    Actually, I just finished the demo. Definitely used to the combat now.

    Yes. You're missing the rest of the game.

    Exactly. Judging the whole game based on a demo that only shows one small aspect of the entire game is imo being pretty rash. I would say at least rent it first. But anyway I'm not here to convince somebody who propably already has his mind made up. lol

    Read afew reviews and been keeping track of the other thread with people's opinions who own it. After the playing through the demo I went out and picked it up
    Was going to wait for a price drop but thought sod it, I really enjoyed the demo and almost finished my Max Payne Old School run through so Sleeping dogs will be going straight in after that

    one thing i don't like is the name of the car doesn't come up like in GTA, so you don't know the name of the car your driving. I was driving a 4 door white sports car with exhaust in the middle, and everytime it changed gear it made the turbo sound. Quality car also seen some 5 door Audis and Lambos.

    I liked the detail they put into the open world environment, and the combat does take some getting used to because the counter-attack time is not as forgiving as the Batman games. I wanna buy it. Any did anyone catch the reference to True Crime: Streets of LA when he gets taken into custody by the police? It's the same guy from that guy, isn't it?

    I don't think so. But Sleeping Dogs was originally a True Crime title.

    Heaven Sword lost a lot if sales due to the demo, thou I tend to give the games thw benefit if the doubt, Mass Effect 2 for instance would have never been added to my collection based on the demo, thou you and others praised it so I put it on my "buy it cheap" list instead, thou I still think some of the things I had against it still stand, but its got a alright story, even if it told a bit robotic

    Eh, opinions are opinions. I love how Mass Effect tells its story, and I really appreciate the characters.

    I haven't played the Sleeping Dogs demo. I don't keep my PS3 with me at college. I wonder if it's on pc.
