Critic Reviews for Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition doesn't mess much with what made the original game so great. And that's a good thing.

One of the best games of 2012 gets a mild makeover.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is amongst the finest open-world games of recent years, with gratifying and brutal combat, a genuinely gripping story and excellent car handling for this type of game. Despite some technical issues, which perhaps should have been addressed for a 'definitive edition', the game remains as playable as it was two years ago. Given the wealth of content and its relatively low entry price it would make a sound addition to anyone's collection, though there's ultimately nothing new here for players that have exhausted the original the first time round.

It's hard to recommend anyone repurchasing Sleeping Dogs for this Definitive Edition, but it could be a great experience for newcomers.
