Sleeping Dogs is a third-person action shooter with RPG elements, having Hong Kong as its central location. The city is an open world for the player’s exploration, and many gameplay features revolve around interacting with the surroundings. A huge aspect of immersion would be music, as it is themed according to the geographical location of the city.
The main character Wei Shen finds himself in various situations which lead to the development of the main story. Resolving conflicts between local citizens and Hong Kong’s organized crime, the protagonist is offered to join one of the city’s gangs. Due to this, the players need to plan their actions carefully, building trust among both the gangsters and the police.
The game features an unlock-based role-playing system, where every consecutive ability or trait is unlocked after the player achieves a specific goal or levels up character’s prestige in each of the three in-game groups. The combat system is heavily reliant on the character’s skill of martial arts, but conventional weaponry is also a favorable choice. Non-story related interactions add flavor to the overall gameplay, as there is a wide choice of how to spend the protagonist’s free time.

Sleeping Dogs reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
"Sleeping Dogs" is an English Open World Third-Person Gangster Game from 2012. Hong Kong. We are Wei Shen, an Undercover Cop Used against the local mafia clans, the Triads. In the process, we are getting deeper and deeper into the Pull of Events. Much Becomes personally important to us, so that we keep asking ourselves which side we are on, on the Police or on the Side of the Triads. Anyone who has ever played "Grand Theft Auto" will quickly find their way around "Sleeping Dogs." In the huge City, which is divided into four Neighborhoods, we primarily pursue Missions that take us forward in History or try our hand at numerous Side Missions. Among other things, races, Collective Orders, Money Collection, Autoklau, But also Karaokesingen are on the Program. You always start from a safe Accommodation (from which one for each District is unlocked in the Course of the game), grab a Car or motorcycle that you have either bought or you steal the Next Best, drive to a Mission Marker and meet the Order. Then go back to the Safehouse for Sleeping, Storing and Regenerating and On to the next Mission. In Combat Situations we always use Firearms, but we usually rely on our Fist Fighting Skills. The Combat System is reminiscent of the free flow system known from the Batman titles. The Most important Skill is the Counter. The Enemy attacking one lights up red. A Click on the right Mouse button of the Opponents lies on the Ground. This sounds quite simple, is not too difficult either, but the System becomes quite complex as the Game progresses, as we can learn more and more combos and thus start more and more creatively. In General, we level a Lot on in The Course of the Game. Much Of this, however, is only a percentage of Improvements. Also many Clothes we can buy or unlock, some also bring Bonuses. The Controls work relatively well and intuitively, the Vehicles are even quite passable controllable. Races or course runs become quite a fun Element. The Main Story of "Sleeping Dogs" is astonishingly good, if very predictable. It is true That there is a great Deal of cliché, exaggerated. In particular, the Chase Rides, in which we would cause an Opponent to Explode every few Seconds with MG Leaning out of the Car Window, even for Action Movies. But the Figures are surprisingly serious, the Conflicts astonishingly understandable. This is not least due to the really strong professional (English) Speakers and the often strong Cutscenes. In General, the Atmosphere is one of the great Strengths of the Title. Driving Through the anonymous City in The pouring Rain at Dusk makes, despite not exactly outstanding Graphics, abundant Whimsy. This is mainly due to great World design. The Streets feel bustling, the many Neon Commercials shine through the Night. And the Variation width of Music support Is impressive. In a Nobel Body, the classic box is then reached, and often the Background beat pushes you further. On and on. "Sleeping Dogs" is a 20-30 hour, very solid alternative to GTA, which often uses repetive and expectant Gameplay, but in some Respects it is even more grown-up and atmospheric than the big Brother. Rating: 8/10 Atmosphere 8/10 Story 7/10 Graphic 9/10 Sound 7/10 Game Mechanics 7/10 Balancing 8/10 Game Pass Conclusion: Weck the Sleeping Dogs! 8/10 Overall Rating
