Sleeping Dogs is perfect tonic for GTA V wait

By Alan Ng - Jul 25, 2012

We were impressed with the recent behind the scenes gameplay footage for Sleeping Dogs, but we have been blown away again by another look at the upcoming title from United Front Games.

This time, we get a detailed insight into how the game will play out, more specifically a full walkthrough of one of the game’s missions complete with commentary from the developer explaining the various gameplay aspects that will be available to you.

The video gives us a look at the ‘Mrs Chu’s Revenge’ mission, which sees main character Wei track down a triad gang member who has killed one of Mrs Chu’s close friends. Watch below though as soon as Wei steps out into the vibrant Hong Kong city and living in Hong Kong myself, I can see what a great job they have done in recreating the city.

The Cantonese speech and accuracy of the accent is very believable, while cruising around the city is a joy to watch as well – the graphics look fantastic. There is obviously going to be a lot of comparisons with GTA V, since the style of gameplay is very similar, but there are some acute details which United Front Games have made a key focus on.

For example, check out the combat – it looks a lot more technical than Grand Theft Auto and very brutal as well. We told you in an earlier article how they had drafted in UFC champ George St. Pierre to help make the combat more realistic and you’ll see that they have done a pretty good job in that aspect.

For those that still are not aware, Sleeping Dogs hits the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on August 14. Check out the full walkthrough from Mrs Chu’s revenge below. We’re loving that poster of Dim Sum as well by the way. Watch it and let us know how impressed you are with this game.

Certainly a game to keep you busy until GTA V isn’t it?
