I thought people might simply pass up Sleeping Dogs, but looks like I was wrong. The game looks interesting, but I really enjoyed GTA IV, and Just Cause 2.

Re: GTA has been dethroned - Sleeping Dogs is the champ now

As much as i dislike GTAIV i have to appreciate how "good" it is and i'm sorry but IMO sleeping dogs doesn't really touch it. GTA5 will just take the title back unfortunately, but there's still hope, Watch Dogs looks sick as fuck so i'm phyced for that in the coming years.

Re: GTA has been dethroned - Sleeping Dogs is the champ now

Even though I've heard tons of negative reviews, I am downloading the game right now. Any advices on how to start, what to do at start?

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Re: GTA has been dethroned - Sleeping Dogs is the champ now

I just platinumed this game last night, my first platinum in fact. I hope to see more games like this from UFG because they have the potential to truly rival the GTA series which is great really.

Re: GTA has been dethroned - Sleeping Dogs is the champ now

I've recently bought and completed Sleeping Dogs (got it on release) and I must say it's good, but it just seemed far too short for a sandbox game. There were only 30 story missions and I completed the game 100% in 19 hours.

The main missions did seem shorter than other sandbox games. Saints Row 3 was longer.

Not much longer, I remember a trophy popped after 30 hours of play and even after doing everything else in the game I had to leave it whilst I watched some tele for that to pop.

I enjoyed Sleeping Dogs, yeah the entire driving mechanic was ripped from Wheelman (check some footage from that game, you can leap between cars, time slows down when you aim at enemy cars and you can ram in any direction. They just took that wholsale) and the combat was kinda repetitive once I learnt to break bones but it was still fun. The parkour sections were well done, the car chases were kinda exciting and the sidequests were varied enough to keep me interested.

The thing is though, this is not a game I will ever get the urge to go back to. Unlike GTA5 which I still get the itch to go back and play from time to time this just doesn't give off the same vibe. It's a fun game that has an interesting and pretty engaging story, but once you're done with that the rest of the game is just ok.

It's basically just a fun 20-25 hour game that'll not bore you if you play for chunks at a time. Definitely worth picking up at some point.
