Let Sleeping Dogs fly

Some weeks ago I plugged Sleeping Dogs as one of the hot games coming out this summer.
It’s nearly here. The UAE release date is August 14. And to whet your appetite, here are some screenshots and a video trailer.
It’s a third-person action/shooter set in Hong Kong. You play undercover cop Wei Shen, skilled in gun fu as well as kung fu, as he tries to take on the Triads.
I won’t say too much about the game. Watch the trailer - you’ll be salivating by the end of it. After two summers of Rockstar dominance (Red Dead Redemption in 2010, LA Noir last year), Square Enix look like my hot favourites to take the summer crown with this one.
