Sleeping Dogs early review scores
Not long to go now before Sleeping Dogs is released and this game is looking set to be one of the best titles, if not the best title to come out this summer. The reason we say this is because not only is this meant to have the best combat you’ll get in an open world game, but the lack of hype has caused this to be a surprise edition, which doesn’t seem to have much negativity surrounding it.
Looking at some early review scores, we feel that this game has made a big impression with many regarding Sleeping Dogs as a much better game than first anticipated. Plenty of gamers are now starting to get excited about its imminent arrival and there have been many calls for a demo on the PSN so that they can experience a taster before they rush out and buy it. With fluid gameplay and fun combat, those who have tried it out have nothing but good things to say about it.
In an article on Official Xbox Magazine, their view of Sleeping Dogs is that it is shorter than GTA IV, but sweeter, as they were not expecting such a good game, and to highlight some negativity, the main issue with this game is that it is a little short by open world standards, at about 14 hours in length. Although a very impressive 9 out of 10 has been awarded, they show plenty of admiration for what they call the sharp, well-acted storyline and varied missions. The news of this being a short game may concern some gamers, but it has been said that there are plenty of side missions to keep you occupied.
With DLC expected in the future there will be even more added yet those who have played it say that it has replayability and many gamers would rather have a shorter title with substance than a longer one that ends up with nothing worth mentioning. Another review score by OPM UK was also 9/10 and they describe Sleeping Dogs as “2012’s most brilliantly brutal surprise”. We also saw a review score a couple of days ago from Official PlayStation Magazine, which also gave it a 9/10 , so this is now developing a pattern, as Editor Ben Wilson regarded it as the “the best bits of a load of games you love pooled together with intelligence and humor”.
Our most recent article on Sleeping Dogs mentioned how long until it hits the PS3, which is now only 5 days away for those in the States and 8 days for those in the UK and Europe. As we wait patiently for this to arrive, we want to know if you have a problem with the length of the game. Do you think that titles like GTA IV are too long?
