    Synopsis:
    Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world's most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside... the Hong Kong Triads. As players explore the bustling and crowded Hong Kong island, through its neon-lit side streets and sprawling street markets, an incredible story unfolds of loyalty and betrayal where Wei begins to question his own motives as he is sucked in deeper than he could ever imagine. Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbor dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat. Featuring one of the most intuitive and imaginative combat systems, Sleeping Dogsempowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, singlehandedly taking on numerous opponents. Players perform bone-crunching kicks and combos, vicious counters and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns making use of countless real-world items from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator doors.

    That actually does look like fun. Will probably tank in price in a couple months like Just Cause 2; I could see myself paying $40 for this.

    I think I'm more interested in knowing if the game will be any good or not more than I would play it. It got such a bad rep from previewers back when it was True Crime Hong Kong, so I'm curious to see how much of the game has essentially changed since then.

    Looks good visually though.

    I'm pretty excited about this game. I'm hoping it ends up being fairly decent.

    It reminds me of Yakuza which is what first piqued my interest.

    it reminds me of Darksiders, in that it looks to be a hybrid of a bunch of good series, so I hope it works out well.

    Yessssss, I loved True Crime Streets of LA, and I enjoyed other martial arts games like Jet Li's Rise to Honor (gun system was wonky in that one though). Day 1 for me.
