This is an incredible achievement, given that Activision decided to break its relationship with United Front Games during the game's production, forcing the developer to pitch its half-made title to publishers and thanking the stars when Square Enix stepped in where Activision left off.
It's a testament to their efforts and the appeal of open-world gameplay in modern cities, even if I complained about some of its issues in my review. Sleeping Dogs currently has an 80.86% average on Gamerankings for the Xbox 360 platform.
