Currently playing Sleeping Dogs too. And so far i am liking it, although i disagree with you on the shooting part. The shooting doesn't really feel that great and really feels like a missed opportunity. The game really is more focused on hand-to-hand, you cant even carry guns outside of missions. And there seems to be about only 3-4 guns so far, and you cant dual-wield. The melee fighing works well to, aside from at times the controls feel completely unresponsive (maybe its just a PC issue, dunno) and that the lock-on is useless.
But the story is really good so far, and i am hoping it doesnt have a shitty ending, unlike Alan Wake, which i also recently completed. Made by the guys who did Max Payne (oh, i also completed Max Payne 3, great gameplay, disappointing story), and it despite its ending, (which kinda gets expanded upon in extra episodes, but it still feels like complete sequel-bait) is really good. The story is really interesting, and the combat is great, having to first use light to make enemies vulnerable to bullets, which makes the combat pretty intense at times, and hard especially if you are facing alot of enemies. And the two extra episodes are like the nightmare scenes from Max Payne, taken up to 11. Also finished the American Nightmare kinda-sequel, which is much more action oriented, the shotgun Terry Crews uses in The Expendables, you can get that in the game, and it is awesome. Much shorter than the first, and is really just 3 levels repeated 3 times (although different each time), but considering it is a DLC-game it is somewhat understandable. Both are currently on sale on Steam so if you are interested i really recommend getting them, cant think of any games like them.
Also despite thinking that i would hate it, i bought Skyrim. 25 hours into it, i can say that i was wrong about it, really fucking wrong about it.
