    Uncertain about Sleeping Dogs

    A friend of mine said that I should skip Sleeping Dogs, that it sucks. However, I saw the review scores and it looks like it's actually a good game. So is it pretty good? If I like Grand Theft Auto, will I like Sleeping Dogs?

    Thank you.

    Very solid games, much more fun than GTA 4. Just check the reviews and watch some videos, you will definitely fall for it.

    I loved this game, it just needed more missions, more Emma Stone, more diversity when it came to doing Cop and gang stuff, and a few more tweaks, but it's understandable why that stuff wasn't in the first game. I hope Square continues the series.

    Sleeping Dogs was a lot better then what I originally thought, I hated the demo.

    Only thing that would of made it better is if you could carry a handgun at all times, even with extremely limited ammo. Your a cop, you shouldnt lose your handgun so much.

    It's pretty cheap at this point (I paid $24.99 on the PSN) and I believe it's the same price for a physical copy. I personally was on the fence like you are, and waited 'til the price dropped. I shouldn't have really, this is a great game. Some say a GTA rip off but I disagree. Sure it shares some gameplay elements of GTA but it does it in it's own style and manner.

    Long story short - Yes, buy this game. It's loads of fun and at the price it's at currently, you will be pleased.

    Good game. Just wait for it to be cheap if you are uncertain.

    Dude play it, you'll have a good time. I just played it for the 1st time last month and i had so much fun. I'm still playing it. It gets addicting sometimes.
    Oh, I'm sorry did I break your concentration I didn't mean to do that. Please, continue. - Jules

    It's a good game, one of the better open world big city types. I enjoyed it a lot more than GTA4. It can be a little annoying sometimes and has some funky glitches, but overall well worth buying.

    Bought it yesterday but haven't had a chance to play it yet. I was in the same situation as a friend said is wasn't worth the money however I decided to give it a chance and I reckon I've made the right call judging by online opinions and reviews.

    Absolutely agree with this. GTA 4 failed me miserably and this surprised me quite a bit.

    Underrated. The game deserves to sell more for what it is. I concur that It's more fun than, Grand Theft Auto IV

    It a good game well id say its a great game but thats me, i really enjoyed it, the fighting mechanics is awesome, the missions are pretty good, mini games are also fun, an finding lock boxes an hacking cams is fun too. the game also lets you buy clothes, cars, bikes, accessories ect you will earn new safe houses along the way throught out the mission you cant buy them sorry lol. an there loads of shoot out an drive by shootings in missions which is great with slow-mo :P

    The main character is a good one you'll get use to him pretty quickly! Highly Recommended game, New IP's dont normally get buzz but some ppl are just missing out on this game big time. only bad thing is when you completed everything its a boring game lol or just get a gun an go rampage to get the police/swat on your tail!

    There are other map pack missions available in stores among other things!

    I just rented this for the first time a couple day ago, and I must say it is indeed awesome, I can't believe I almost missed it. It reminds me a lot of GTA3 and is pretty much everything that GTA4 should have been. My only real complaint would be that the melee system doesn't feel quite as polished as Arkham City or Assassin's Creed. That being said, it's a must play for anyone into these types of games. Sort of sad that it didn't sell as well as it should have, though I guess I'm part of the group to blame for that.

    I loved this game and I highly recommend it. As other people have said it is more fun than GTA4.

    Also it's a pretty easy platinum. I am judging that before all the DLC cause I got the plat before the DLC came out and haven't got around to buying them. But yeah buy it! Lol
