    you don't need max police xp due to the police side missions. pretty easy to hit police 10 way before story starts rolling if you just do the drug busts.

    I have pretty much the same setup actually. I'm suspecting some kind of a bug actually, if you drive beyond a certain speed, the screen starts jerking/tearing/shaking like your car's suspension was bust.

    The whole "troubled past, cop with a vendetta" -angle. And the fact that he starts breaking apart on the first morning (after you sleep). Plus the case files and whatnot. Unless there are major twists coming up, he is pretty much textbook undercover cop with conflicted past. Fresh in games but not in the genre.

    That it was, Kerrigan wasn't some cackling witch and Mengsk wasn't a self-parody, nor did the story go all over the place with sub-plots that have nothing to do with anything like ME2 loyalty missions.

    (To clear any confusion I meant Bioware not Brood War in my first post)

    Don't forget the truck load of pre-planned DLC it has (they sell it via a 'season pass').

    You need to brush up on your analytical skills because you should have been able to tell that before actual making this thread.

    I read this a lot, but I can't agree with it. I've played GTA4, but I don't think that it had semi-realistic driving. It wanted to have that, but it failed. It had good physics when the cars collided, but they could spin out too easily, and their suspension was so soft, they were moving like boats on water.

    If all GTA clones are like this then I welcome more of them.

    I was surprised by hod good this game was. Stands up with GTA games.

    And rain looks fucking amazing with HD textures and settings.

    Emma Stone was underused :(

    Like legit 10 lines in the game.

    Maybe it's just because Ching Chong land isn't used that much in games but it has great atmosphere.

    Buggy as hell? I've yet to find a bug in the game, and I'm playing quite a lot with it.

    Only found two bugs, where I needed to collect a case off someone but when I beat him up, his case fell through the ground. The other one might be performance related - when running or walking down a road the screen can sometimes jitter.

    Other than those, no bugs.

    let's see...
    1.03:
    i'm not getting any steam achievements awarded.
    first time i started playing naz would just stop at some point and not move any further in the intro mission and just magically appear at the end if you kept running. also the cops wouldn't move into position the way they are supposed to.
    the game often crashed with hkship has stopped working errors.
    took patch 1.04 for that mission to work properly.
    after face level up i was changing paint jobs on car in garage when car valet called to tell me he's available, which stuck the game permanently on the garage screen and nothing worked to get out of that.

    1.04:
    still no steam achievements.
    when you go to bed and trigger multiple phone updates, the newer ones override the old ones and you can't scroll history or anything. had a brief flash that not ping left a voice message, but then another one from raymond triggered before i could actually listen to/trigger said voice mail, and no way to trigger it afterwards.
    people and barrels sometimes spawn in midair and fall down for no reason. seems to be bound to specific areas. also rarely happens to you if you leave car in/after a few of the missions.
    game still often crashes with hkship errors, but now they seem to be related to certain story points and actions (handing in last jade statue, vaulting over cover when rescuing the girls in kidnapper 3).
    lots of minor but nevertheless annoying physics and clipping glitches, especially related to special objects like the lockboxes.
    possible bug: sometimes a driver in a race just keeps getting faster and faster developing a truly monstrous advantage and me failing the race around 50-70% completion with no possibility to win whatsoever.

    Tried the game, it has some flashy gimmicks, but that's all there is to it. All flash, and all forgettable.

    Can you save during missions, or is it like in GTA?

    Are the missions actually interesting? I remember trying hard to get into GTA4, but the missions were so boring that I gave up after 10 hours of play.

    Like in all games of the genre, missions are just short challenges that progress the story. Good in short sessions, gets old if you do too much without break.

    BTW, updating display drivers eliminated my crashing problem completely.

    Finished the main story. Seemed fairly short for a game of this type. Although I didn't really bother with most of the side content. Overall the game was fairly fun - 7/10. Some issues with controls, camera can sometimes get annoying, too many minigames and QTEs. And the story, while engaging enough, takes itself too seriously for the amount of cliches that it has. Also completely underwhelming last fight. Still, if you like this type of game there's a big chance you'll have a lot of fun with Sleeping Dogs.

    Very nice looking game, except for Depth Of Field which cannot be turned off. How I hate that effect and everyone who forces it on me in games. I imagine they think it helps with draw distance issues, but it still pisses me off.

    I saw a stream of this game the other day. Looks very gimmicky, but somewhat decent. I might get it on a 5€ sale one day.

    Lots of really pointless minigames and derpy batman aa/ac-like melee with lots of contextual press button to win counters. Enemies glow when they're about to attack you.

    There's a demo out on Steam now. Played it, and surprise, didn't really like it much.

    You can still play Dragon Age and Mass Effect if you want wanking material.
