Sleeping Dogs

A bit Hong Kong action flick spliced with Grand Theft Auto? Go on, then.

Playing as undercover cop Wei Shen, your mission in Sleeping Dogs is to infiltrate the dangerous gangs of Hong Kong and learn important information about their activities, before reporting back to domestic and international intelligence forces.

He’s a bit of a loose cannon though - Shen has a history of bad behaviour, and blames the Triads for “what happened to his family.” Quite what that is will be revealed as you progress, but you can imagine it's not pretty.

Tomb Raider

After a less than stellar performance in the prior few Tomb Raider games, Lara is back with a reboot and a new origin story. You might already know the drill: a young Croft begins her journey with a rag-tag band of archaeologists, en route to Asia to look for some ancient ruins. Her vessel gets shipwrecked near an island in a freak natural disaster, and she is separated from her team - forced to survive a series of unfortunate events in a story that ultimately shapes our heroine into the bold, tiger-shooting Tomb Raider that we know and love.

For the most part, all of this feels exactly as you would imagine a Tomb Raider should, with lush forests, dank underground tunnels and ancient temples forming the majority of the game’s backdrop. There are also plenty of platform-based puzzles that allow Lara to clamber atop of debris and buildings buried deep within large environments.

It’s equal parts classic Tomb Raider and Uncharted, with an added smattering of Quick Time Events to punctuate near-death encounters with wolves and desperate escapes from deadly caverns. It’s great at capturing tension in rare instances, but the QTEs aren’t over-used.

Just Cause 2

The first Just Cause game saw rough-around-the-edges agent Rico Rodriguez parachuting into island nation San Esperito to engage in a spot of regime change. Just Cause 2 sees Rico back at it with crazier stunts, more high-flying antics and plenty of chaos to be seeded.

The tropical island of Panau has just seen a new president claw his way into power, and the US government isn't too happy about it. To make matters worse Rico's mentor, Tom Sheldon, looks like he might have gone rogue. Enter Rico!

Just Cause 2 features a massive archipelago to explore. There are over 350 towns, villages, cities and military bases to see and raze. In your mission to cause chaos and unsettle Panau's government you'll need to work with local criminal factions. This will see you touring the different locations to kill colonels, steal goodies and blow lots and lots and lots of things up. You'll go from sandy beaches to snowy mountain tops to a floating brothel. Yes, a floating brothel...
