09 Sleeping Dogs
It might have been made with a fraction of the budget given to a Grand Theft Auto game, but this open-world crime adventure features a pretty amazing recreation of Hong Kong. It’s at night when the city looks its best, with buildings and colourful neon signs stretching as far as the eye can see. Throw in some rain and reflection effects and you’ve got one of the most attractive virtual cities on Xbox, even if it does lack the insane micro-detail of Rockstar’s urban sprawls. Its bustling markets and serene temples make a refreshing change from the American cities we’re used to trashing in games.
