For these few minor issues that Sleeping Dogs stumbles on, there is so very much that it gets right. Many of the character voice actors are clearly of Chinese descent and frequently sprinkle in Cantonese into their work. There are 50 shrines, 26 spy cameras, 100 lockboxes with money and clothing, and 11 Jade Statues in the game to keep you busy beyond the 15 or so hours of the somewhat-predictable, yet enjoyable main story. The four pillars of the game that I mentioned earlier represent a fantastic amalgamation of some of the best games we’ve played, giving us a serviceable shooting and driving game, a great free-running game, and a fantastic combat engine all in one package. Anywhere Sleeping Dogs might have lost points for originality, it makes up for in managing to combine all of these elements into one coherent game. As I finish up my review for Sleeping Dogs I have to say that my track record for betting on items that Activision has discarded has held up. I highly recommend this title.

Sleeping Dogs is an open world game with a massive city for you to invest countless hours exploring. It's a beautifully realized world that brings with it a more focused attention to detail than what's offered by several comparable open world games. Unfortunately, it lacks the extraordinary level of customization that games like Saints Row and Grand Theft Auto offer, so a more comprehensive arsenal of customization options would've been nice. You can purchase from a decent selection of vehicles, from the mundane to the exotic, but each vehicle has a paltry three to five paint jobs available on average. They're also all preset, so you don't have the option of coming up with your own combinations. Cheat Code Central (http://s.tt/1kOGr)

Overall, Sleeping Dogs for the Xbox 360 is one of the more impressive open world action games I have played in recent memory. Fantastic visuals, top-notch sound and varied gameplay makes Sleeping Dogs a must own for gamers who enjoy such titles as Grand Theft Auto, Saints Row and Crackdown. The compelling story manages to suck you right in and the level of depth offered up in the game is impressive. Sleeping Dogs is easily the sleeper hit of the summer and a game many should be playing well into the winter.

Pick up a gun, and the temptation to slip into traditional, tedious cover is immediate. Sleeping Dogs anticipates this, and dangles a carrot on the other side of the crate. Vault over it, and you'll be rewarded with seconds of slow-motion. Kill an enemy during this period, and your bullet-time will extend. With that auto-snap aim, it's possible to take out a whole room in one jump. This, along with generous checkpointing (something Rockstar still struggles with) and an essential storyline that occasionally challenges, but never over-tests, feels like United Front is on your side. Hong Kong is a pleasure to explore, with Wei's range of athletic moves giving him access to a good range of hidden places and objects.
