THIS is the real Hong Kong map
with the region of New Territories,Kowloon and lantau island
ImageImage
THIS is the real Hong Kong Island
Image

AND THIS is the map appear in youtube's sleeping dog video
Image

how come the shape and scale become like this??
Why the north point in sleeping dogs is at the east?lol

I live in Hong Kong,which is in the N.T.(New Territories) region
My home is not in this game! and my favourite shopping place Kowloon,MongKok is not in the game!!
If no Kowloon in this game, no Victoria harbour also!
the most famous spot in Hong Kong!!
i m very disappointed about this...hope SE will make it in DLC or anything

Yea the map is not showing the streets and such, north point seems to be where the highway is, by the eastern part of the map, also i am very interested to know next to Aberdeen all those twists and turns, looks very intriguing.

Kowloon IS in the game, But it will be called North Point (the real North Point has been replaced by a Kowloon-like neighborhood), so the architecture, the look & feel of Kowloon are all still there.

But your other point, about the iconic view of Central across Victoria Harbor now being gone, now that's a genuine concern :/ (unless there's sumthin ur not tellin us, @Sleeping dogs)

In Hong Kong there has 3 cross harbour tunnel between Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island
I dont think that they were located in North point...

In True Crime:HK there has a shot of Lamma island , which is a tiny island nearby Hong Kong Island in the real life also.Sleeping dog also have an untitled island in the map, but it is much smaller.

The mountain drive at the centre of Sleeping dogs island should be the Peak Road in realistic.
But seems that it become much shorter and simplified due to the shape change of HK island in Sleeping Dog.Nice course for the illegal racing at there but sad to heard about that the distance has been minimized.

It was also nice to reminded that Ocean Park,
A local theme park that the Hong Kong Disneyland cannot beaten
is located in Hong Kong Island,nearby the Aberdeen.
It would be nice that if Ocean Park(or any similar theme park) can also located in Sleeping Dogs map

CARKING0709, buddy, sure the map might be unrealistic, but curb your expectations. At first I was disappointed that Kowloon is not in the game either... it's like making a game with NYC and excluding Manhattan. But I realized a bigger, more accurate city would add very little to the game (novelty), and make it much harder for UFG to create. At least they've already stated that Mongkok has more or less been incorporated into North Point (which is silly, but better than nothing right?). Perhaps UFG would have been better off calling it a fictional place with fictional districts, as Rockstar does with GTA games.

If it makes you feel any better, you should also note that this game's cityscape is probably as true to Hong Kong as the numerous open world games this generation borrowing NYC are true to that city (not very, only an inspiration). GTA, Prototype, Spider-man, Mafia... these games all take creative liberties with their NY style location. Other examples of games with inaccurate but well-designed cities include Driver: San Fran, and Saboteur.

In the end, the most important thing for the game world is being packed with things to do and buildings to enter; things to see. LA Noire is geomap accurate, but filled with nothing to do and lots of empty space. I wouldn't want that with Sleeping Dogs.

I would like a representation of Ocean Park to be in the game though. That would be great fun, with functional rides and all (and what high octane action story is complete without a sequence in an amusement park?). There's a large space on the game map between Aberdeen and North Point, so there is hope...

Has it been stated how true-to-life they want the map to be?

From what I have read and heard on the trailers is that it is not a road to road map of Hong Kong, however it wasn't their goal to do so. I am sure the map will be fine, if the world has the vibe from what I have scene in small clips of gameplay then its going to be awesome, i always said this in open world games if the map is huge but nothing to do, I would much rather have a smaller map with a living breathing center city, traffic, and crowds, from the gameplay it seems like it is lively and reading the hands on previews it seems we will finally get a great lively open world game.

I agree with hurricane, but I also hope we get a lot of features such as car customization, maybe weapon upgrades, and safehouses too! I wish parkour is included in such a interactive game of 2012!

yea cage need some nice features likd that, what i read in previews is that you start out with a dingy safehouse then as you progress you can get penthouse and it can be decorated dont know to what extent but sounds awesome. The favors thing is intriguing hope its random npcs giving you jobs to do.
