Ohhhh, that's interesting. In that case I will definitely point that out, which reminds me of this because funnily enough I was watching Rush Hour, the TV series (adapted from the Jackie Chan film version) where the cantonese they did use in Episode 1 was definitely not native, and the actors being BBC/ABC this was not too surprising, but I would've thought they would try to put SOME effort in, but nope. It was hard to listen, but also funny. I'm not native, I don't believe I speak have an accent compared to my cousins who rarely speak it (so it's very obvious they have an accent). However compared to a native speaker, while I will be able to understand and follow a conversation 80+% of the time, I may have difficulty with certain words or replies, or perhaps getting my message across on more complex matters due to my somewhat limited vocabulary. Damn I really need to finish my current game and get to Sleeping Dogs, the thought of none native speakers speaking is making me rather excited to go discover it!
I found the Cantonese in this game quite amusing only because majority of the actors have a proper BBC/ABC accent that you can tell they're not native Canto speakers. I mean, finding out that Edison Chen voiced Jackie explained a lot haha. The only people that seemed like native Canto speakers are the odd granny NPCs in the game. (lol)
Nice, I remember playing this on PS3 ages ago. Havnt picked up the improved version though. This is the cheapest i have seen it. Thanks OP.
Hahahahaha! (Diu) lei lo meiiiii!!!! if they say that, I'm sure they say it. It's so satisfying to say. I speak cantonese at home, I planned to stream the game soon (after my current one or after my next one) and offer some commentary on what the characters say that's not subtitled, or offer my interpretations (translation) of what they do say, as a unique twist. Will port the streams over to my youtube too though. Not sure if anyone has done this specifically, unless there are hong kong streamers on this, but I don't know how to type (or read) the characters to search for them.
currently playing on ps4 ! love the cantonese swearing on it. ham gaaaaaarrrr channn lol
