09 Sleep­ing Dogs

XBox: The Official Magazine - - EXTRA -

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.
