An Unnecessary Remaster

Reviewed by on

Sleeping Dogs was a pretty nice surprise when it landed in 2012, giving gamers a sandbox that was a healthy combination of GTA, Kungfu Combat in the style of the Batman Arkham series and a gritty crime story set in a unique Hong Kong setting. By far the most appealing aspect to the game was its location which gave it an entirely unique identity. Overall the game was good and that was that, nothing too much more but certainly nothing less. However the PS4 and Xbox One remaster proved itself to be entirely unnecessary, coming out just two years after the original release. While it did boast HD textures and smoother performance, the problem was that the game didn't age well at all, releasing onto the current gen consoles when games had already surpassed it technically and visually. I mean, Game of the Year nominee Shadow of Mordor had just released, to put things into perspective. All it did really was bring the console versions up to the PC version's standards, and barely added anything worthy of a re-purchase. There's not much reason to pick up this remaster if you already played the original, but if you've never experienced Sleeping Dogs before then it's definitely worth it at the price tag it's currently going for.

Best Thing Since Sliced Cheese

I love this game. I was looking for it a while back but I totally forgot about it. now that it's available on PS4, I finally got it and I'm not disappointed. The main missions are entertaining, the more I played the more I wanted to play. The story line is somewhat predictable but it's super fun on that journey. I love the fact that you play an undercover cop with the added crime to fir in to the Sun on Yee. Apart from the main game there are also a few packs in this one. Definitely worth the buy! Sadly I got a digital copy and I wouldn't mind getting this as a collectors item for myself! Get this game, play it at least once!

Not the best remaster on the PS4

Reviewed by on

My sleeper hit for 2012, Sleeping Dogs, mixes typical Chinese organized crime tropes (Triads, Red Poles etc) with a healthy mix of dirty cops and martial arts. It’s tough for adult sandbox games to not be compared to GTA (whether it’s Mafia, Saint’s Row or this game’s predecessor, the True Crime series) but given the contrast that is Hong Kong (compared to say for instance, a Vice City), the intuitive counter system and environmental attacks (chucking someone in a dumpster), Sleeping Dogs does enough to distinguish itself from most of the pack. I recently replayed Sleeping Dogs on a current gen console and while it’s smoother on the PS4 (the original Xbox 360 version was quite buggy) the game hasn’t actually aged that well – pick it up if it’s cheap.
