This review is from: Sleeping Dogs (PC DVD) (Video Game)
This game is based on being an undercover cop and infiltrating the Triads. In this type of game you would expect to have to balance the trust of either of the two sides, but this doesn't happen the story plays out and doesn't really give the option of favouring either side. There are police cases to undertake and offers of help from fellow people help improve your cop score and Face respectively.
The Face meter is used for passive abilities for Wei and also gauges what you can buy in shops, (clothes or cars).
The controls are really easy only with the zoom button being L-Shift when using a gun i found that annoying as when driving I would left click and then fly out of the car as that's the button you press to enter and leave cars. This does prove annoying when you accidentaly do it when you have time limit on your mission.
Graphics are superb and the cut-scenes portray your clothes as well which is an aspect I love. My Laptop has struggled with games but even on Low graphics quality it looked amazing and in the rain when I thought my latop (A Dell Inspiron N5110) it ran smoothly.
In the game you can compete to get the best scores against your friends (ie, cleanest driving or kill streat) this offers a nice little contest.
This game is simply a must get and there's certainly plenty to do as i've finished and only really done 50% of missions. 5/5
PS. Some bugs that require you to press / mash buttons would be best changing the button config to Left Mouse Button, as i found that worked best,
