I picked up Sleeping Dogs shortly after finishing Saints Row the Third. I’d heard that Sleeping Dogs was really good, and I was in the mood to give another open world game a shot. I can’t say I was disappointed; Sleeping Dogs is fantastic. The driving is arcade-y and fun, the fist fights are Batman: Arkham style, and the shooting is competent enough. It feels like a good cop action movie, which is what it aims to be. There’s plenty of side content and they make decent distractions. Most are centered around punching guys in the face or chasing them, but there are also races and betting on cockfights. The story is rather good as you play an undercover cop in a Chinese triad.
