My favorite part of the game so far was driving up to victoria peak. The general Hong Kong atmosphere is cool, along with the transformation of the main character. It still lacks a certain "vision" though from the creator(s).

2nd week at no.1, do like it when something Acti does bite them on the arse. They could have had another franchise to kill with yearly releases ;-)

^ And funny too considering they don't have an open world like game, so something like this would have been great for them. I wouldn't be surprised if Activision made a lawsuit to the developer about it at some point.

Wait, what chart did you get that at?

This site says something different.

http://www.vgchartz.com/

Still number 2 (X360) and 3 (PS3) in Europe and number 3 and 5 in the U.S isn't bad at all. # 4 and 5 in the world. It's great in fact.

I am a bit baffled the PC version isn't in the top 100.

Global

1 3DS New Super Mario Bros. 2 323,797
2 X360 Darksiders II 208,798
3 PS3 Darksiders II 195,268
4 X360 Sleeping Dogs 163,779
5 PS3 Sleeping Dogs 135,389
6 Wii The Last Story 81,701
7 DS Pokemon Black / White Version 2 60,120
8 Wii Dragon Quest X 46,402
9 PS3 London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games 42,987
10 X360 London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games 42,304

Just finished the game 100%. Enjoyed it a lot. Wasn't mad keen on the story, i think the whole cop/triad thing could have been executed a lot better. Half the time it just felt like Shen was a cop only by name. The hand to hand combat and driving mechanics are awesome, as is the city of Hong Kong. Gunplay is weak IMO, but the hand to hand makes up for it. I liked the blend of Hand to hand and guns in missions.

People have reported many glitches but i rarely found them. I fell through the map once after hitting a wall, and there are a few dodgey animation glitches here and there, but other than that it feels polished. I think the 8.5/10 rating Gamespot gave it is a fair score. If the story and gunplay were better, it would be a 9+/10

I actually like the gun fighting, and you can get through gun fights in some fun ways.

Same here. Usually i avoid DLC like the plague, but i want some more out of this game. I really hate how games are these days in terms of DLC, releasing content on the day a game is released?. That really pisses me off, its deliberately holding back content to make some money.

EA are the worst for it by far. I love playing battlefield 3, but now they've got that stupid 'Battlefield 3 premium' DLC, giving you advantages like double XP along with the expansion packs. I had a brief look, it costs 4000 Microsoft points, which i think is around £37. I paid less than that for the game on release day.

What do you think the chances of are a GOTYE or Complete edition, whatever they feel like calling it , coming out? Is there enough DLC to warrant a release like that?
