I've had the game for a couple of days now and to say "I'm loving it" is an understatement. The game is a bit like GTA and Assassins Creed with a different face. Therefore it is a sandbox game where you can wonder around and enjoy yourself picking the main story or the side missions. The fighting combat is really enjoyable and there is a nice variety in not only the fighting but also the gameplay. Street fighting, street races, gun battles, drug busts, slow motion shooting when lunging over stuff, shooting from your car, a variety of vehicles and you can even hijack vehicles whilst driving which I thought was quite original. However the main thing I love is the ability to use your surroundings in combat. So when you grab someone you can for example, go a little bit cinematic and push their head into a wall, moving fan, incinerator etc. And then get more street cred bonus for the way you fight.
The game is enjoyable, the controls are easy to get used to, there is variety in the game and the graphics and map of Hong Kong is not only beautiful but very accurate. This is one of the best games I've owned.
