The lone downside of combat is the camera's tendency to get too close when you're in a corner, forcing you to run away just to see what you're doing. Still, the combat has a brilliant overall feel, and you'll find yourself street fighting often, just for the sport of it. This combat serves as a reminder of what this game used to be. Three years ago, this was Activision's property, known as True Crime Hong Kong, but it was canceled in 2011. Square Enix, however, picked up the project, and now, here in 2012, Sleeping Dogs proves a worthy sandbox game. That's because of the combat, the strong city of Hong Kong and the voice acting. But it's mostly because of Wei Shen's story, the one that starts with that early chase.
