Yesterday when I was at PAX I found myself bored as I waited for my friends to push through the Borderlands 2 line and noticed the Sleeping Dogs kiosk right across from the 2k area. So far I've been pretty cautiously excited for the game, especially with all the changing of publishers and the like, but thats changed now that I've played it.
Hot damn is this game just fun. The story seems like it could have its own interesting merits, yet it could always just devolve into some generic Hong Kong action flick style game, but that doesn't matter really. The gameplay is just sheer fun, playing like a joyous combination of Mirror's Edge, Saints Row, and Batman Arkham City. You can transition seamlessly from free running and mantling objects around the city to a free-flow combat style system full of brutal, stylistic flair. The shooting seemed fine and the driving suitably drifty and arcade-y, but it was just how the few gameplay systems meld together and transition into each other that made it so awesome. Definitely a must buy for me now. How have the rest of you liked it?
