    It really is, but what I want to ask is:
    Will there be a new one? This game was amazing and really had everything GTA didn't have.
    I read some blogs which wrote that the sales went bad, but word of mouth for this game is quite good and it needs some time to grow.
    Any idea?

    I personally though of it as not a great game from what I saw in some demos and from the chinese guys,
    but after playing it, it was the new GTA, everything was great.
    Maybe misconception?

    It sold well for a new IP. I think it is likely they'll make a sequel. Remember, Sleeping Dogs is effectively a sequel to True Crime: New York City and True Crime: Streets of L.A.

    It would be nice to have planes perhaps.

    It's a nice departure from GTA in a GTA style package, but it will never compete with GTA, and I see that as more of a good than bad thing. GTA can get long in the tooth. A big part of SD's appeal is it's unique art design and of course the awesome graphics. It also just makes you feel like you're in Honk Kong with it's many mood setting nuances.
