Synopsis and Features
In the world of Sleeping Dogs you, playing as Wei Shen, are an undercover cop who is hell bent on destroying the criminal organisation called the Triads. It’s not as easy as it looks as you are pushed into difficult situations where you have to prove your loyalties at every step. Trying to overcome obstacles, you have to advance through the organisations hierarchy to meet the cunning and vicious villain who is the mastermind behind it all. Sleeping Dogs demands your complete attention as it features a compelling story and satisfying combat.
Developed by United Front Games along with Square Enix London Studios and published by Square Enix, Sleeping Dogs has plenty of features that will keep you at the edge of your seats. The single-player campaign in the story will take you across the fictionalized city of Hong Kong as you try to infiltrate in the organisation, without arousing suspicion.
Sleeping Dogs allows the use of environmental elements to master unique kills. You can use the standard dumpsters to eliminate your enemies or use things such as sword fish heads, A/C units fitted across walls to finish of your nemesis. The game features a unique levelling system. This system allots XP in 3 areas such as Cop, Triad and Face.
These points will allow you to unlock new abilities. The points are allotted on how well you handle missions given to you. If you are brutal and ruthless in disposing off your enemies, you get Triad points. On the other hand, if you are good towards innocent victims, you are rewarded with Cop points. You earn Face points by helping out citizens of Hong Kong, allowing the people of the city to trust you more.
One of the most interesting features in Sleeping Dogs is maintaining the contrast between dishing out brutality and saving innocent victims. This can lead to tough situations where you have to choose whether to save or kill an enemy. One of the most satisfying aspects of the game is its hand-to-hand combat. You can beat your enemies to pulp with flashy moves that are visually spectacular to execute.
If you want to go astray in the game and try something new you can do it in Sleeping Dogs as it has several side-missions. You can drive cars at high speeds, sing you heart out as a karaoke singer, gamble on cockfights or find hundreds of collectibles that are spread all across the city. If you are a fan of destruction when playing virtual games Sleeping Dogs will offer plenty of it as you can engage in shootouts in every other mission.
The game offers immense replay value as you can repeat playing missions with different tactics. Sleeping Dogs offers game time of up to 25 hours, depending on how you play it. You can complete missions and post scores online and keep a track of how you are faring against gamers across the world. The updates and wallpapers for the game can be downloaded from the PSN Network.
