Sleeping Dogs HK Video Game HK Video Game with All Star Cast

[15/08/12] 

Sleeping Dogs is a newly released video game for PlayStation and Xbox that's set in Hong Kong and features an all-star Hollywood cast. Key voice-overs come from the likes of Lucy Liu, Emma Stone, Tom Wilkinson and Edison Chan which just goes to show how lucrative gaming has become. The fact is we live in a gamer's world - last year, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 took $775 million in five days. It must be turning the school playground hierarchy upside down.

Priced at US$59.99, Sleeping Dogs was inspired by Hong Kong films and pits you in a triad conflict. In the game you play Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to bring down the gangs from within. According to the producers, you'll take part in "in brutal criminal activities without blowing your cover" and be "torn between your loyalty to the badge and a criminal code of honor." A typical night in Wan Chai for some.

It's non-stop action with martial arts, car chases, bike chases and boat chases aplenty but the best bit is that Hong Kong is your playground. You can "enter illegal races, gamble on cock fights, or kick back with some karaoke." Anything HK related stokes our interest but this game is the genuine article, the result of a huge amount of time and investment. It's bloodthirsty and it's home at the same time.

Let Sleeping Dogs lie.
