I was playing this game for quite a few hours last night. It was essentially a True Crime game.. if you aren't familiar with that title, think Shenmue/GTA. For those that don't know the history of this game, it was basically the third installment for True Crime. The dev team came up with a concept and Activision liked it but wanted to take it to a totally different direction than the devs intended. Activision wanted more of a fantastic, outlandish idea to it. So they dropped the project like the scumbags they are and the devs took their idea to Square Enix and here we are today. This game has a huge Hong Kong triad movie plot to it. It's basically your triads vs. cops theme with the main character, Wei Shen, being deep undercover. The game is primarily in English but the characters speak alot in mixed cantonese and english. The background characters all speak in cantonese. It gives the game a really big atmospheric boost since the whole setting is in Hong Kong. There's a bit of cantopop and canto-rap for game music. There's alot of use of pok guy which cracks me up. They even used it in an early live action trailer. http://youtu.be/Soy3mkL_f9k I'm playing the PC version and the devs handled this game very similar to Skyrim. There was a high res texture pack dlc (free) on launch day so the PC visuals got quite a big boost. I'm playing it perfectly on my radeon 7770 at 1920x1080 with high details. It's gets choppy on extreme details. I'd suggest a x360 controller with this game due to the driving sequences. There's some car chases that get clunky on keyboard. The hand to hand combat is said to be right in Batman Arkham Asylum/City range. Very fluid. And you can use the environment to smack up your enemies. I didn't get a gun yet, so I can't speak for the shooting action. The voiceovers are done really well too. Emma Stone, James Hong, Edison Chen, etc did voice acting for the game. The game has quite a gritty feel to it. There's quite a decent amount of character progression too. You get to skill up combat skills etc. If you get bored, you can always do random mini-games and gamble if you want. I give this game 5 honey garlic chickens up.
