New Sleeping Dogs Gameplay Video Redefines the Meaning of Overpowered

Today Square Enix released a new gameplay video of Sleeping Dogs, featuring producer Dan Sochan as he walks us through one of the missions of the game, titled The Revenge of Mrs. Chu.

The mission gives us a good glimpse on the combat system of the game, that really redefines the word “overpowered”. The design of the game goes out of its way to make Wei Shen look and feel like an invincible action hero, especially when he gets his hands on a gun. The aggressive cover system activates bullet time every time Wei vaults over an obstacle, and extends it for every headshot he scores. If you’re good you can basically play entire sections of a mission in slow motion slaughtering everyone in sight.

You can even jump on a car and steal it on the fly. Seriously, what’s not to love? You can watch the video below.
