I have to say, it's not bad. I usually hate live action stuff unless it's done really well (see the Halo: ODST shorts and a few others) but this definitely seems to be in keeping with the tone of the game.

If this has some decent Max Payne style Honk-Kong cinema based shooting mixed in with an Arkham City based melee system, count me in. Ideal game right there.

Saw this over at GT a little while ago, has got my interest. Still would like to see some actual gameplay tho

That was actually...Really well done.

Weird, I was expecting it to be terrible.

Have to say that was a pretty good Trailer, but i have to wonder how the actual game is it was finished before it was canned by Activision so will be interesting to see if anything major has been changed or updated other than just the Name of it and change of publisher.

I think a live action trailer is a bit pointless, even more so than CGI, but this one is at least very well made. It also seems to be tonally very consistent with what we have seen of the game before the cancelation. If they can pull off both the shooting and melee combat this could be pretty interesting. I'm skeptical though.

I was hoping the Sleeping Dogs would have been Kane and Lynch 3, but I'm intrigued to see how this turns out, although using a live action trailer isn't exactly inspiring much hope in me.

it's really weird seeing the street I live nearby shows up in a game trailer...
