Welcome to Hong Kong, a vibrant neon city teeming with life, whose exotic locations and busy streets hide one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world: the Triads. In this open-world game, you play the role of Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads from the inside. You'll have to prove yourself worthy as you fight your way up the organization, taking part in brutal criminal activities without blowing your cover. Torn between your loyalty to the badge and the code of the triads, you will risk everything as the lines between truth and honor become permanently blurred.
Lots of fun
Pros: a fun open world/sandbox game with a lot of interesting mechanics and a really great story. the story was better than GTA4 and Saints Row 3, but Saints Row 3 might be a bit more polished.
Cons: maybe the story lags in the middle, but that might be because i'm a perfectionist and lost track of it as i was doing all of the side missions.

Pros: This game really brings on the violence that is related to the triads and the authenticity of Hong Kong itself (to an extent).
Cons: It is filled with glitches and bugs, mostly just detracting from gameplay or adding to humor. The game did freeze on me once so far; but with the autosave keeping check every now and then, you lose about an hours worth of work or less depending on what it is.
Other Thoughts: The game is mostly spoken in English by the main cast members with Cantonese thrown in here and there mainly used as insults or cursing. The translation for that part is ok, nothing spectacular compared to the rest of the dialogue.
