Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition improves graphics, now 1080p, and it adds all DLCs. If you like sandbox games, go ahead and get ready to fight with martial arts and perfect shots, also enjoy driving in wonderful Hong Kong.
This is one of my favourite games for the PS4, maybe my favourite of all. It's the only game that I've achieved 100% completion in, and I did so to show my respect for the game and the developers. It has a far better story than the likes of GTA, but what sets it apart from other games is the immersive Hong Kong setting.
A great improvement over a very good surprise of 2012. PC players of the original game could not see the difference but gamers on PS3 and Xbox 360 and especially newcomers have a great opportunity to (re)discover and enjoy a very good game.
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.
The Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs is first and foremost for new gamers who haven't played the fun original. The extra missions are decent, but more of the same and the graphical improvements, while fine, aren't stunning.
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.
The game was great because I had a wonderful time being invested in it. The story was nice where it played well on the complexities and the dilemmas of an undercover cop. The ending felt a bit cliched but the wild gameplay mechanics and fun side missions made the game memorable along with its main characters
Sleeping dogs é um jogo revolucionário a partir de sua premissa, muito comparado com os jogos da Grand theft auto suas qualidades ficam ofuscadas por tal comparação, entretanto, o jogo mistura muito bem elementos de enredo principal com qualidade técnica e design...
Muitos elementos bem explorados e um tanto inovadores, dando muito mais emoção e mais explosões em momentos de tensão, também, ótimas cenas de lutas e finalizações onde é a maior premissa do jogo.
Gráficamente o jogo não deixa a desejar para os recursos do seu ano, explorando muito bem todo o poderio do hardware das plataformas para entregar um mundo aberto com muita vida, bonito e sem framedrops ou bugs de renderização.

I rarely give a low score to a game (you can check my profile), but for sleeping dogs, I don't know how I can rate this game high, because every aspect in this game is *below average*. It is understandable that in the past PS3 gen, this game is doing fairly 7/10, but nowadays there are many great AAA openworld games out there. Sleeping dogs does not have anything to compete with them.
Graphic - very outdated
The world - lifeless, not as good as other AAA games.
Main Story - mediocre at best, I mean, this kind of plot that police becomes a spy to get into the criminal gangs is happened everywhere in action movie. Boring. The pace is slow too.
Sidequests - Nothing worth mentioned.
Gameplay - still below average in my opinion. Coming from someone who has play Yakuza series, Barehanded fighting is not nothing special at all. Other things are very average.
Music - below average for AAA games. No music that catched my ears.
In conclusion, if I rate 5/10, that means the game has all aspect average with no strength, but for Sleeping dog, most aspect are below average with no any strength to compete with other AAA games at all so I had to rate 4/10. I played the game for several hours then had no motivation to continue. If you want to play a game that has better street fighting and much much better story writing, I strongly suggest Yakuza 0. If you want openworld AAA games, there are ton of them out there. Sleeping dogs is not worth any of your money, unless you have so much free time that you finished all of great AAA games, then maybe 10 bucks for this game, but don't expect anything good here.
This game is just riddled with bugs and **** and it crashes completely at least once a session. The most infuriating bugs are the disappearing objects, which either cause you to fail a mission (guy you're tailing just disappears), or causes you to lose exp (sudden vehicles out of thin air).
Second thing is the melee fighting mechanics, which are the whole core of the game as the weapons are truly scarce. The only real strategy that works in a fight is to (a) grap smaller opponents, beat them up, run away, (b) kick bigger opponents once, run away, (c) wait for the guy with a knife to strike, counter and hope none of the others are too close, run away. I think the countering system is essentially broken, where even if your reaction time is on spot, the character just does nothing to avoid damage. Best just to run in circles and grab, grab, grab.
Driving is frustrating as hell, and it's almost impossible to get full points on cop missions due to this. Also, the ramming? Why do something this cartoonish in an otherwise "realistic" game.... Just ridiculous.
I give props to this game for the story though, and the dossiers on the main characters are actually well written and entertaining.
