Storyline

Welcome to Hong Kong, a vibrant neon city teeming with life, whose exotic locations and busy streets hide one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world: the Triads. In this open-world game, you play the role of Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads from the inside. You'll have to prove yourself worthy as you fight your way up the organization, taking part in brutal criminal activities without blowing your cover. Torn between your loyalty to the badge and the code of the triads, you will risk everything as the lines between truth and honor become permanently blurred. Written by Square Enix

Trivia

Originally intended to be the third game in the Activision-produced "True Crime" series (after True Crime: Streets of LA (2003) and True Crime: New York City (2005)), but was cancelled after Activision elected not to back the game in a market dominated by other free-roaming games made by other companies, such as Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) and Saints Row: The Third (2011). Eventually picked up by Square Enix, development was left in the hands of both them and United Front and the game was retitled "Sleeping Dogs". See more »

Welcome to Hong Kong ! (An Excellent Video-Game)
23 August 2012 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

Open-World games are always popular among gamers . for instance GTA & Mafia series are 2 top Open-World series and I love both . True Crime was an open-world game that actually sold good then United Front Games decided to continue franchise and make True Crime : Hong Kong . Activision was supposed to publish it but for some reason Square Enix, publisher of Final Fantasy series announced that it has taken the charge of publishing this game and title also change to "Sleeping Dogs" . no one expected much from Sleeping Dogs but it did quite a feat . the game-play is perfect . Kung fu and martial arts are as exciting as Driving around the city . designing of the city is great . in the Sleeping Dogs Hong Kong is your playground . you can enter illegal races, gamble on cock fights or kick back some karaoke . Epic high-speed thrills like burning up streets or tearing up the sea in a vast array of exotic cars,super-bikes and speedboats is fabulous . Story is wonderful and Screen-play attracts players . I suggest you play this masterpiece and join the Sleeping Dogs.
