Okay, so let's get something out of the way. That very first gun that's shown off this most recent trailer for Sleeping Dogs, does anyone else hear that absolutely annoying high-pitched noise that assaults the ears whenever it fires a bullet? If that shows up in the actual game (which it probably will), I will refuse to pick it up for my entire playthrough. What a horrible sound.
At any rate, the rest of the trailer more than makes up for it. There's plenty of car chases, shooting from cover, and exploding barrels. The more I see of Sleeping Dogs, the more it reminds me of Max Payne 3 in a lot of ways. Except with less painkillers and alcohol, but with way more crazy action sequences. I'm such a sucker for the explosions and destructible environments.
