Face doesn’t mean a thing when the minions of hell roam the streets…

In life, Big Scar Wu was one of Hong Kong’s most ruthless triad gangsters.

Feared as much by those who stood against him as those who stood by him in the Sun On Yee, it was decided by the Grand Dragon that he must be stopped. Looking to send a message, they had him stabbed 42 times before feeding his bleeding corpse to the grinder at the Smiley Cat cat-food plant… his final resting place, in the food bowls of the city’s pet felines. It is said that if the wronged receive anything less than a proper burial, their spirit will almost certainly come back as a Hungry Ghost, damned to starve in the afterlife, feeding only on their hatred.

You turn him into cat food and that’s pretty much guaranteed.

Now, Hell has a sense of humour, and when Big Scar Wu arrived in the underworld and word spread of his demise, they renamed him Smiley Cat, much to his chagrin, with the name fuelling his bitterness with every utterance and driving his thirst for revenge. Rising from Hell and vowing to exact his revenge, Smiley Cat has raised an army of Jiang Shi, set on a path to destroy the Sun On Yee and to create Hong Kong’s most fearsome criminal empire.

With the city in chaos and its citizens possessed, Wei Shen now faces a challenge far more sinister than any before. To save Hong Kong, he must seek out the most powerful of Chinese magic, endowing him with a power strong enough to take on Smiley Cat’s army of Jiang Shi and face-off against the ghosts of Triads he has defeated in the past, sending the dead back to Hell once and for all.

Nightmare in North Point will be available this Halloween (31st of October 2012), downloadable from the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Marketplace and Steam.

    Sleeping Dogs Game Review At first this game puzzled me because I thought it was set in America.
    A lot of people are speaking in American accents.
    But it turns out Hong Kong is it’s actual setting (there’s even a British
    guy in there as well.) Spotting the genuine Asian person is
    the challenge. Anyway that doesn’t really matter, my job is to
    give you a game reviews light sprinkle of words and wisdom
    as to whether or not you should buy the game, so we shall begin.
    Straight away it gives signs of being heavily story orientated which is a good thing in my opinion! I like
    the story, I’m not going to give a big break down of the whole thing because that’s what makes Game Reviews long
    and I don’t want to spoil things for you. But, the story gets
    a thumbs up from me. I’ll talk about the things which I like about Sleeping Dogs, first off there is a pretty nifty game mechanic where you have 2 different experience systems.
    You gain experience as a cop and as a triad (saying cops and triads
    shouldn’t be a spoiler, you should be aware of
    this.) So you gain experience as a cop by completing undercover
    cop cases and not killing innocents and wrecking the place.
    You level up as a triad by beating down bad guys and the usual gang related things.
    I really like the combat though, the fist-fighting seems quite
    fluid and I actually get beaten a lot of the time which to
    me, shows that the combat is a challenge (which not a lot of games are these days.) The developers have done well to
    keep weapons out of your hands as much as possible.
    So you do have to fight with your fists most of the time, it makes a
    refreshing change from every man and his dog packing heat in other games.
    Things I don’t like so much about the game include – the graphics, they’re OK but that’s as good as they get.
    Also some of the driving controls are very unrealistic. I get that they wanted to put some extreme stuff in there, like hijacking cars by jumping out of one and into the other,
    fine. But ramming other cars is just plain bad, there’s a button to
    ram car’s and when you press the button you seem to get a boost of speed in the direction of the
    car you want to ram. I mean ANY direction, even if it’s parallel to
    your car, it’s bad design in my opinion. Finally the only other gripe I have is the
    fact that every female you meet in Sleeping Dogs wants to be intimate with
    you as soon as they meet you. Now I’ve heard a few things about Hong Kong but this is just starting to look
    like Bangkok. Video Game Review Conclusion Overall I think
    its a good game, you’ll get a lot of hours of game
    play for your money and it’s very entertaining with a good story.
