Sleeping Dogs: Hard Boiled Gunplay
Hong Kong cinema has some fantastic shootouts and is a true inspiration for Sleeping Dogs. Players can create those moments themselves using Wei's skills. When hand to hand combat isn't enough, disarming an enemy will gain you the advantage. Every bullet is brutal than the last, piercing the flesh of the brave and dim.
To make scenarios more atmospheric the environment is destructible and explosive. Slow motion kills are ever present in Hong Kong action films and can be initiated whenever you vault over cover. Think The Matrix meets Infernal Affairs; both films have inspired the game one way or another. Especially Infernal Affairs which is a Hong Kong crime-thriller, about an undercover cop who infiltrates the Triads. In a similar fashion Sleeping Dog's plot happens to be the same.
United Front Games have crafted a promising open world crime drama, exploring the nitty-gritty world of the Triads. Hit the streets of Hong Kong like never before when the game releases on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC come 17th August 2012.
