Review: Sleeping Dogs

Have you ever wanted to play a Hong Kong action movie?

Here’s your chance. Sleeping dogs is an open world action game based in Hong Kong. I hate saying it, but it’s like GTA but in china. You play as an under cover cop named Wei Shen. Wei grew up in Hong Kong and eventually moved to the states. At some point he became a police officer and now he’s being sent back to Hong Kong under cover to take on the Triads. When Wei returns he finds that some of the people he knew growing up now have positions of power within the Sun On Yee. This makes him perfect for being undercover but everybody wonders if he’s taking his assignment too personally. You’ve seen this type of story before but don’t let that dissuade you. It’s an interesting story that keeps you moving through the game. The unique and foreign setting is something I really like about Sleeping Dogs. The game started development in 2008 and was part of the True Crime series but was eventually cancelled, but in 2011 Square Enix picked it up and renamed it Sleeping Dogs. It’s considered a spiritual Successor to the True Crime series.
