The core gameplay of Sleeping Dogs consists of giving the player an open world environment in which to move around freely. Sleeping Dogs is played as an over-the-shoulder, third-person perspective action-adventure game with role-playing elements. The player controls Wei Shen, a Chinese-American police officer, as he goes undercover to infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad organization. On foot, the player character has the ability to walk, run, jump, climb over obstacles, and swim, as well as use weapons and martial arts in combat. Players also drive a variety of vehicles, including cars, boats, and motorcycles.

Sleeping Dogs sees a slight performance boost at all resolutions, and you can see the Sapphire R9 290X TRI-X 4GB OC is able to extend the R9 290X's lead on the NVIDIA offerings. Most importantly, we've got some fantastic FPS at all resolutions with a solid 122 FPS being seen at the highest resolution.
