The game is fun as hell. It is a little derivative, but they didn't hide the fact that they were taking good stuff from other games. Good story, and while there are plenty of cutscenes, they're not overwhelming and don't completely kill the action. I'm finding that sometimes the mouse control is a bit wonky, but nothing game breaking.

Was stoked when I went to play last night and it gave me all the Shaolin stuff from my preorder. Was running around town dressed like a Shaolin warrior, and did a couple martial arts clubs, figured I was dressed properly for them.

Each Martial Arts club you beat gives you a different attire from a movie. There's Bruce Lee shirtless, Bruce Lee from Enter the Dragon, Ong Bak, and Rumble in the Bronx. The club in Kennedytown's 6th stage has like 20 guys at once. Phone Post

only been playing 2-3 hours and really enjoying this so far. it's far more fun than gta, it also controls better and the camera is easy to handle.

in eurogamer's review they criticised the camera and visuals but so far i've seen no issues with either, especially compared with gta 4.

the world might not be as detailed and in-depth as gta's but the things that matter are there.

the fighting is great, a much improved version of shenmue. vehicles handled brilliantly, arcade feel but easy to keep under control. the main character isn't as agile as that of assassin's creed but does have some useful parkour abilities. i've not got so far as to use the guns yet so cannot comment on those.

Brandable - so is it good?

i see the usual new game excitement followed by confusion towards the game mechanics and combat.

What's the scoop?

oh man do GET the game...dont let the initial issues block you from getting the game...as with any new game more or less..it takes time to adjust to things like mechanics and controller comfort setup n such.

if anything you can come in this thread and have a ready and set Q/A breakdown from our own experience :)

thats the good thing about the GAmerground... folks will have a layout you can just follow to ease your gameplay...

i plan to do the same thing for Dark Souls( a long thread on the GG )with LOTS of suggestions n advice i will MOS dEF be using.

DO get Sleeping Dogs man we are all helping each other through the game :)

PJ Benn Fan - Also if you are having a tough time fightign the gangs in missions or the drug busts, you may want to collect the statues first to build up your moves.



So far I have the leg break, the tackle, and the sprint followed by strike.



Another trick for the drug busts is to drive to the location in a car. Then pop the trunk and there should be a crowbar in there.



Helps out bigtime!

yeah true..i been get new moves when i find the statues over the maps n bring to the dojo and upgrade techs n stuff


so far i got Disarming with more ease, leg break and tackle takedown with strike upgrade
..i can also do that "rollover the opponents back" move where you end up behind him...whatever thatwas called

i can agree with this man...


i did use a gun ( i beat the crap outta cop for kicks he dropped his gun) and it handled well..had a SaintsRow/gTA feel to it imo..nothing new really

  Yeah, and I did everything.  The only things I have left are the races, all cameras, all briefcases, and all heatlh shrines.  Fuck the driving camera though.  Combat is easy, but driving can be a pain in the ass sometimes because you can't adjust the camera at all in close quarters.

Game came today. I got to play a little bit at a friends house last night and it was awesome. I wasn't doing any missions, just running around killing people and cops. This game plays like a kung fu movie, it's great! Phone Post

Eloise Ann - This game is awesome. Haven't gotten too far in to it, just been doing favours and drug busts and fight clubs.


One thing I've been doing to amuse myself is if a motorbike is coming towards me from the opposite direction, hold a so the door flies open and knock them off. Good times Phone Post
That's pretty funny. I like to running jumpkick random people or put them in the trunk and drive it into the water. Phone Post
