Sleeping Dogs User Reviews
Welcome to Hong Kong, a vibrant neon city teeming with life, whose exotic locations and busy streets hide one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world: the Triads.
In this open world game, you play the role of Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads from the inside out. You'll have to prove yourself worthy as you fight your way up the organization, taking part in brutal criminal activities without blowing your cover.
Torn between your loyalty to the badge and a criminal code of honor, you will risk everything as the lines between truth, loyalty and justice become permanently blurred.

Originally intended to be the third game in the Activision-produced "True Crime" series (after True Crime: Streets of LA (2003) and True Crime: New York City (2005)), but was cancelled after Activision elected not to back the game in a market dominated by other free-roaming games made by other companies, such as Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) and Saints Row: The Third (2011). Eventually picked up by Square Enix, development was left in the hands of both them and United Front and the game was retitled "Sleeping Dogs".
According to the official website, there were originally plans for a character named Fifi Mao. She was supposed to be a famous aging actress with connection to the Triad, but was ultimately cut from the game.
