Lets start this off by getting the game comparisons out of the way. You take some Arkham City, Max Payne, and Just Cause, mix it up in a pot and sprinkle a little Grand Theft Auto on top. What do you get? Sleeping Dogs.
You assume the role of Wei Shen, who recently returned to Hong Kong from San Francisco. Things start off immediately as you reconnect with your childhood friend Jackie (voiced by Edison Chen) and later introduced to some of the key players of the Sun On Yee Triad. We all have our own definition and assumptions on how an undercover cop story is told, however, Sleeping Dogs will surprise you.
In the back room of the Golden Koi, the restaurant is far from Mrs Chu’s mind. With her close friend dead, murdered at her own wedding, it’s revenge that needs serving. With one of the gunmen known to Wei, an explosive mission unfolds across the streets of Hong Kong . In this latest trailer, producer Dan Sochan walks us through some of Sleeping Dogs’ best-in-class combat.
Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, Sleeping Dogs is a gritty and visceral open world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Taking the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, players are tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside. Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbour 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 Dogs empowers 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.
Sleeping Dogs will be available from 17th August 2012 for the PlayStation 3
The game show a lot of potential, what do you think?
