When I first watched this trailer, it almost made Sleeping Dogs look like it was a racing game. But then I remembered it used to be a True Crime title and that it was open world. The trailer does inform you that you'll be racing at some point, but that's in between all the evading from police, driving boats, and even hijacking cars of the back of motorcycles. Yes, you can seriously hijack cars by jumping off your motorcycle and onto the back of said car.
I'm truly glad Square Enix decided to pick up Sleeping Dogs and not let it get swept quietly under the rug. I can't wait to see more of the game throughout coming months up until its release sometime later this year. As of right now, it's looking like it will truly give Grand Theft Auto V a run for its money. We'll just have to wait and see.
