A man who never eats pork buns is never a whole man. – Sleeping Dogs
Nowadays, there aren’t many different artistic styles to choose from when designing box art. When did we stop referring to games like these as “Grand Theft Auto clones” and start referring to them as something else? After reading Sleeping Dogs, it’s something I’ve been thinking about for some time. I recall that in the years after the release of Grand Theft Auto 3, the moniker “GTA Clone” was all over the place, being attached to nearly any game that attempted to replicate the type of open world criminal game that GTA was.
However, when I reflect back on those games, I don’t recall them as being particularly horrible in any way.
That being said, Sleeping Dogs does not actually achieve anything particularly original or fresh within the sub-genre of open world criminal game, which is why I bring it up.
Again, I want to emphasize that I do not want this to be a negative thing or to detract from what Sleeping Dogs has accomplished.
If this game had been released five years earlier, I could easily imagine it being burdened with that title and being known as “one of the better Grand Theft Auto clones.” Eventually, though, we stopped thinking of these games in that way, and the phrase became a throwback to decades gone by, which happened so softly that I didn’t even know it was gone.
Despite the fact that I lack the discipline to complete many open world criminal games – I’m not sure I’ve played a Grand Theft Auto since 3 – I’d been wanting to try Sleeping Dogs for a long time, so when a Humble Bundle with it included came up a few months ago, I jumped at the opportunity.
Even if they’re not particularly long games, Front Mission 4, Xenoblade, and Valkyria Chronicles 2 are all worth your time.
I needed to take some time to unwind. So, when I was going through my Steam library, it caught my attention yet another time. I got precisely what I was looking for: a really fun, well-constructed 10-15 hour frolic.
Differentiation in this genre can be hard, but Sleeping Dogs stands out in several ways.
Even though I don’t have a really strong computer, this game is nonetheless stunning to watch in action. It was with the logic that the game simply would not be competitive in what was already a very competitive genre that Activision decided to cancel what was previously billed as an impending True Crime game. In retrospect, this appears to be absolutely irrational to me. Even though we’ll never know exactly what Square Enix added to the mix when they rescued Sleeping Dogs from the trash heap, the game has one of the most realistic depictions of an Asian setting I’ve seen in a video game, and it’s undoubtedly the most beautiful depiction of Hong Kong ever seen in a gaming environment.
- There was something unusual with each one, whether it was the setting, the time of day, or the overall tone.
- However, the setting and tone of the tale never really stuck out in the same way that the other games had.
- Similarly to how I felt about Vice City, Sleeping Dogs’ Hong Kong seems beautiful and fresh.
- Of course, the characters and voice acting play a role in this, with the voice acting in this game being some of the greatest I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to in a video game, to say the least.
- The collection of varied dialects, the fact that there are so many different distinct voices for all of the characters rather than a few repeat performers, and the fact that Bethesda games suffer from this problem more than any other are all possible explanations.
- Regardless, the people in Sleeping Dogs feel so much more genuine than the characters in most other games I’ve played, and the amount of time I spent listening to them was a nice surprise.
- The hand-to-hand fighting, in particular, distinguishes Sleeping Dogs from its contemporaries.
- Despite this, I can’t help but believe that the credit given to that series for basically creating the style of countering into chain strikes is a little overstated, at least in my opinion.
- The game feels nice, in a manner that no other open world game of its sort has managed to achieve.
- There were other additional small details throughout the game that I found enjoyable as well.
- Of comparison to other games in this genre, it is the least confusing, and the way the objectives are designated with different colors depending on the sort of objective you will be completing is one of those “You really didn’t have to do that, but it’s wonderful that you did” moments.
It’s the artistic flourishes that they didn’t have to include that I’ll remember in the end. So, what exactly was the problem with Activision?
I cared more about the overall story, and the characters therein, than I thought I would.
Despite the fact that it is a well-worn situation, Wei Shen is a very remarkable figure. It’s how so many of the characters are first presented as sympathetic, inwardly torn individuals that I found most enjoyable throughout the novel, and unfortunately, it’s something that the plot doesn’t really deliver on in the end. Wei, the most notable of them, has a personal connection to the individuals he has infiltrated while working undercover, making him not only the greatest person for the job, but also the most prone to get dangerously close to them.
- When Wei and his handler Raymond are sent undercover to bring down the Triad organization known as the Sun On Yee by top officer Pendrew, things quickly spiral out of control as Triad bosses come and go, people are slain, the chairman of the Sun On Yee is killed, and outright war occurs.
- In this case, that’s a good thing, since when the game does get to that stage, it suffers horribly, as we’ll see later.
- Your supervisors will continually reprimand you for defying instructions and showing too much interest in your newly discovered Triad ties on the sidelines.
- Jiang “Broken Nose” is another another one of my favorite fictional characters.
In the interest of not providing lengthy plot summaries, and because this is a game that you should really play for yourself, I’ll simply state that the popular perception of this game as being purely stupid-fun led me into a false sense of what the game’s true tone was, which I found to be a lot of fun.
- On the verge of passing out, he describes the sight in the man’s eyes as well as the sensation in the pit of his stomach, and how he never anticipated things to escalate to the point that they did.
- Later on, in the next mission you do with Jackie, he is still enraged by the incident and only wants to undertake less dangerous and low-key assignments.
- Although this character development may seem rote to some, it had a significant impact on my life.
- When a narrative doesn’t sustain that level of quality, it’s really irritating, since the people who do well are very well-developed, and it’s because I ended up caring so much about the tale that I was so disappointed when the final few hours just fucked everything up.
- A number of battle sequences, discovering that Pendrew screwed you from behind the scenes by revealing your cover and killing Uncle Po himself, and the game abruptly ending with Pendrew going to jail and Jiang allowing you to rest in peace are the highlights of the game.
- No amount of emphasis can be placed on how sudden and unsatisfactory the game’s conclusion truly is.
- It feels completely disconnected from the rest of the story.
When he and Raymond argue over whether or not Wei is the best person for the position, he is not entirely wrong.
In the end, though, the fiction strips away all of this and turns him into a psychopath.
Perhaps the most egregious aspect of this, however, is that it was completely unnecessary to occur.
There is very little throughout the game that is focused with dealing with Pendrew, so for the finale to abruptly veer towards that direction felt jarring.
To be sure, these are better objections to raise at Sleeping Dogs than referring to “ludonarrative dissonance,” which is something else entirely.
Sleeping Dogs doesn’t really break any new ground, but is still far above average.
Yakuza performs karaoke minigames better, but hey, I can’t quarrel with the presence of karaoke minigames in this game. Though I recognize that many people consider this game to be among the finest open world games of the past generation, a part of me believes that making such an argument is difficult. It’s possible that the actual substance of Sleeping Dogs’ mission design will be pretty repetitious, and it will be quite normal for the genre. Missions that are being followed. Missions in which you must race against the clock.
Sleeping Dogs is not distinguished by its missions, which are adequate in terms of execution and contain no objectionable elements.
What distinguishes Sleeping Dogs from other open world games is its ability to incorporate many of the usual mechanics of open world games while wrapping them in a beautiful and distinct environment, as well as borrowing some of the greatest trappings from other games and adding them for flavor.
- Environmental special attacks have appeared in a slew of other games, but they are deliciously devastating and help to break up the monotony of each combat.
- Car chases in other games are notoriously frustrating, thus the ability to “bumper car” your way from side to side in a vehicle is a ridiculous invention that is tremendously entertaining and reduces the aggravation that comes with it.
- Not that there’s anything wrong with it.
- Unlike Shadow of Mordor, though, which adds a unique system on top of its stale mechanical foundations, Sleeping Dogs is content to just do things that you are presumably already familiar with, and to do them very well.
- And that’s just OK!
- While the music is excellent, the action is satisfying, and the people are surprisingly engaging, Hong Kong has never been more entertaining.
- Along with a little bit of corny music, of course.
Pork buns be praised, Donnie Yen says that a Sleeping Dogs movie is still happening
Several years ago, I discovered that a man who does not consume a pork bun is never a whole man. That lesson was imparted to me by the Hong Kong playground of murder and mayhem known as Sleeping Dogs, which was incredibly amazing at the time of its release. As a result of its dense population, you may (John) woo actress Emma Stone and become involved in some of the action. The action of Sleeping Dogs is centered on a man. In spite of the fact that Sleeping Dogs borrowed several concepts from its genre contemporaries, the game was exceptionally talented in the art of applying the reversal of face-to-foot type kung-fu combat.
- That was the lasting legacy of Sleeping Dogs: to leave a lasting impression on people.
- There’s a connection between the last two sentences: Donnie Yen is the finest martial arts actor living today, and he is still in the business.
- Years have passed during which the project appears to have lapsed into a state of dormancy, lending credence to the project’s title.
- According to Yen’s Instagram post, “great things sometimes take a little time.” Sleeping Dog is in action, are you prepared for what’s coming?
- Undercover officer Wei Shen returns to Hong Kong and is charged with infiltrating a Triad family that he has links to from his youth.
- This is essentially The Departed, except with a lot more spinning dragon kicks.
- In compared to previous video game movie adaptations, it’s a straightforward action flick, however, to be honest, I’d pay any amount of money to witness Donnie Yen’s ass-kicking abilities in action.
Always keep in mind to leave sleeping pets alone. Especially the stray dog in the corner who mumbles to himself in his sleep about the day he outran a cheetah on the trail. The most recent update was made on February 5, 2018.

Sleeping Dogs PS4 Platinum Trophy & Game Review
Advertisements The question of why I—and so many other gamers—enjoy Sleeping Dogs so much was recently posed to me, and I was unable to offer a satisfactory response. Games like Shenmue, Mass Effect, and Uncharted have left an impression on me to the point that I re-play them once a year to relive the experience. However, unlike Sleeping Dogs, I understand precisely why I enjoy those games and could write hundreds of pages outlining my reasons for liking them. The Goldilocks Principle was eventually invoked, and I argued that while GTA is often too satirical for my tastes and Saints Row is too silly, Sleeping Dogs was just right for me.
- Sleeping Dogs begins with a typical Hong Kong-style foot pursuit, which serves as the film’s opening sequence.
- A sort of spiritual heir to the True Crime series—which I used to play virtually every day after school when I was a kid—Sleeping Dogs regrettably underperformed, leading Activision to cancel any sequels in development and putting the brand on hold.
- However, after seeing the developer’s efforts, Activision became hopeful that United Front Games could breathe new life into the True Crime franchise and officially announced that Black Lotus would be renamed True Crime: Hong Kong.
- However, despite the fact that things appeared to be dismal, Square Enix stepped in and purchased the rights to the game, but not the True Crime series.
- Sleeping Dogs was published in August 2012, four years after Grand Theft Auto IV and one year before Grand Theft Auto V, and it is possible that this was a role in its appeal to many gamers.
- Even though GTA V would resolve the majority of the flaws that gamers experienced with its predecessor, there was a gap between the two GTA games that was only momentarily addressed by Sleeping Dogs.
You Look Like You Could Use A Pork Bun!
A significant amount of my youth was spent gaming, and when I wasn’t holding a controller in my hands, I was most likely watching some Hong Kong action movie that I should not have been watching, but which I was able to do because my parents had a permissive stance on age-restricted content. For a long time, my favorite films were Jackie Chan’s superb The Legend of the Drunken Master, Police Story (also directed by Jackie Chan), and Chow Yun-Hard fat’s Boiled, to name a few. When you’re playing Sleeping Dogs, you get the impression that the devs were also fans of Hong Kong action films and leaned heavily on them for inspiration, which, if I’m being really honest, pays off handsomely.
- It truly seems like I’m strolling into one of my favorite movies from my youth, but now I get to call the shots and fight waves of adversaries or blast my way through cramped buildings or alleyways instead of watching someone else do it.
- Later on, he’ll treat himself to a Pork Bun.
- In the game, a character named Jackie Ma, a childhood friend of Wei Shen’s, serves as a type of deuteragonist, introducing Wei Shen to the criminal underworld that haunts Hong Kong.
- Jackie initially comes out as unskilled and cowardly, and he is frequently on the losing end of battles, but he has a great heart and is fiercely devoted to people he cares about, despite his appearances.
- A Red Pole (a type of Triad Lieutenant) in the Sun On Yee, Winston Chu is the gang’s boss and the commander of the Water Street Gang.
- The first few encounters with Wei are tense and aggressive, which I’ve always assumed was due to Winston’s use of steroids, as evidenced by his massive, overcompensating gun.
- In spite of the fact that Winston is depicted as a bumbling behemoth with suspected erectile dysfunction, he is unusually affectionate towards his mother and his girlfriend, Peggy Li, according to the novel.
- An further factor in my enjoyment of Sleeping Dogs, which I’ve come to realize, is the universe that United Front Games so meticulously and effectively built from over 25,000 photographs of Hong Kong collected during their tour.
- It’s a pleasure to stroll around the night market, which is the first region you may visit in the video game.
Why Isn’t There A Pork Bun In Your Hand!?
Sleeping Dogs doesn’t provide anything particularly unique in terms of gameplay; nonetheless, United Front Games has wisely chosen to concentrate on hand-to-hand fighting—which is functionally comparable to the combat in the Batman games and/or Mad Max—instead of gunplay. While playing through the main plot, you’ll come across a few instances where you’ll be required to pick up a gun and fire your way through an obstacle course of adversaries. Outside of the tale, you can, of course, find guns concealed in lockboxes or even in one of your flats after completing the game, but you can only keep the handgun you find in one of your apartments.
- I sincerely love this idea, as it successfully introduces new gameplay elements to the open-world criminal genre.
- The 4 Fight Clubs are one of the most entertaining side activities you may participate in while playing Sleeping Dogs.
- It’s not just the fighting that has been streamlined, but the entire game has been streamlined as well.
- When you’re zipping down a street at 100mph, you never have the impression that you won’t be able to make a rapid turn and head down a different route if the situation calls for it.
- This is a fantastic feature on top of the tight turns.
- “I’ll beat you up, but then let’s go grab some Pork Buns!” says the narrator.
- Sleeping Dogs wants you to have a good time, whether you’re sliding over barriers in a shootout, hurling someone onto a meat hook, or simply hanging onto the side of a racing truck.
- I may not fully get the allure of Sleeping Dogs, but I am quite aware that it is a unique game that ought to be experienced at least once.

- With this move, the open-world criminal genre gains some much-needed variety in terms of gameplay.
- Sleeping Dogs’ 4 Fight Clubs are one of the most entertaining side diversions available.
- It’s not just the fighting that has been streamlined, but the entire game has been streamlined.
- Driving down a street at 100mph, you never have the impression that you won’t be able to make a rapid turn and take a different route if the situation calls for it if you need to.
- You may also leap from one vehicle to another, and the game will slow down to ensure that it appears as amazing as possible when you do so.
- I’m going to beat you guys up!
- Sleeping Dogs wants you to have a wonderful time, whether you’re sliding over barriers in a shootout, hurling someone onto a meat hook, or simply hanging onto the side of a racing truck.
And it delivers in every respect. Sleeping Dogs is a unique game that ought to be played at least once, even though I don’t quite grasp what it is that makes it so appealing. Advertisements
A Slap in the Face
Killing someone with a fish is a common occurrence. This trophy may be obtained by completing the assignment Club Bam Bam. It is pretty easy to ignore, but don’t be concerned because you can retry the mission at any moment.
To defeat your opponents, you will need to use ten different guns. I picked up this trophy completely by accident, but you should make a point of picking up every new rifle you come across and killing someone with it as well.
To vanquish your opponents, use a variety of melee weapons. This trophy was awarded to me after I completed the plot, however you should come across enough weaponry during the game that this should not be a problem for you. If you are having difficulty obtaining this medal, you may consider completing the police side missions, as some of them provide you with a baton. Weapons such as umbrellas and purses that NPCs drop can also be used to your advantage.
Take control of five trucks and steal their load. You will be instructed to take control of an armored vehicle and transport it to a garage where it will be sold early in the game. Hijacking 5 will get you a substantial amount of money upfront, as well as this trophy. Advertisements The platinum release from Sleeping Dogs is about as straightforward as it gets. Finish the tale, locate all of the collectibles, and then collect all of the miscellaneous trophies to complete the mission.
It’s a PlatPlat! Sleeping Dogs takes the open world, crime-driven genre popularized by games such as Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row and adds just enough new elements to make the whole experience seem fresh. Pros
- Hand-to-hand fighting that is entertaining
- Intoxicating settings Characters that are well written
- The view at night is spectacular
- The map is a good size, and the story is amazing. Pork Buns are participating in this game.
- Some parts haven’t held up well over time
- The physics system can be a little finicky at times
- The story is a little too brief
- Unfortunately, the Pork Buns are only available in digital form.
The Platinum Trophy is a prestigious award given to those who have achieved excellence in their fields. Sleeping Dogs is an excellent game that ought to be followed up with a sequel, remade, or included in the Playstation Hits collection.
