Sleeping Dogs is an open world game.This game is all about an undercover cop(Wei Shen) who joins with the most notorious triads and trying to eliminate crime. The first few missions keep u busy and will teach all the basic attacks and skills needed to survive the coming missions. after a few levels the player is free to roam the island and the picturesque skyscrapers and neon signs gives a great panoramic view.
this game stands out from the other GTA inspired open world games in terms of gameplay and the way the player has to complete missions. the player has to use kick and melee attacks most of the time to kill enemies and all the drug bust missions r of great fun especially the hacking of the surveillance camera part and not just this, the game got ample lot of new things like hijacking a vehicle on the go,karaoke bars,fight clubs, mastering new moves,those environmental takedowns,other missions excluding the story line and more.
Sleeping Dogs is at it's best if you play through the story. Missions usually provide together a number of activities, switching from one type of action to another frequently enough to keep you busy and ensure that you never get tired of playing. Graphics r little clumsy.other than this everything is fine.
overall sleeping dogs give the player a fresh gameplay experience and all the missions including the drug busts and shrines will be challenging enough to make the play enjoyable.i highly recommend this game to all those open world game fans.
