    Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition offers the same solid game experience, but as the DLC's that are included are not brilliant, we wonder if the the astonishing graphics is worth the big price difference with the original one.

    Definitive Edition is not quite an essential purchase – especially if you already played and finished the original release – but it’s definitely worth picking up if you’re hankering after the kind of open world criminal action that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

    A more polished version of an already polished game.

    It's a shame we're not getting any new content here, but it is indeed the best opportunity to try an outstanding game that have already surprised many players during the previous generation.

    There isn't a good enough reason to double-dip if you played the original, but if you haven't had the pleasure, we'd suggest you Triad it out. [Dec 2014, p.94]

    While it can look nice under the right conditions (usually during well-lit cutscenes or when the sun goes down), Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is the least impressive new-gen remaster I've seen so far. And as somebody who played through the entirety of the game upon its original release, the visual tweaks on offer here did little to convince me that I need to play it, or more importantly pay for it all over again.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is quite literally the (S)ugar (H)oney (I)ce (T)ea. I enjoyed playing it on the Xbox 360, but the remastered version for ps4 is everything I was hoping for and more. the graphics are flawless, and getting all the DLC helps as well. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys sandbox games or is just looking to kill a few hours. Expand

It has a fun story with some really great voice performances but the gameplay is the reason why I've scored this game so high.

    Driving around the city, beating the crap out of a bunch of other gang members, doing various fun side missions, exploring the city for all the collectibles and a bunch of other stuff just make this game such a great package for me.

    On the PS4 it doesn't really blow you away with the graphics. In fact it's very similar to the PS3 release but that shouldn't discourage you from picking this game up, it's one of the best open world games I've played.

Consigliato? Si se non avete tanto denaro da spendere, è uno dei giochi meno costosi su ps4 e garantisce molte ore di gioco, questo grazie ai vari dlc inclusi nel gioco. Voto 6/10. Expand

But was left with PS3 graphics in no way did square Enix enhance the graphics like they claim they did I truly expected better looking graphics on the ps4 version like they did with tomb raider but yet we only got the exact same game with the same ps3 graphics.
    The added dlc's is not enough to make this game shine on PS4 if you look at GTA V on PS4 and sleeping dogs you will clearly see how far behind sleeping dogs really is. Sleeping dogs was below average on PS3 and on ps4 it is even worse. The controls is terrible and the driving mechanics is garbage. The entire game is a lost cause and should never have been remastered for ps4. If you like open world crime games on ps4 I suggest stay with GTA V
