    I actually kind of liked this game, even though the camera-gimmick is pretty.. odd,I suppose,as it also kind of gets annoying at rare times, but nice review nevertheless, Sage!

    I've Always wanted to try this game and the first one of the series, the concept sounds really cool and the multiplayer sounds really fun but, i guess a cool concept doesn't always make for a good game eh?

    I can't believe they're making a movie based off this series...

    Can someone who's played through this all the way to the end please tell me that they both die at the end so we don't get another sequel. =_=
  • Camseyeview
    i thought it wasnt that bad, but just like dark void its forgettable

    plus the motion camera thing when you run makes me want to throw up

    Four. HOURS?!

    That's... ridiculous! :(

    This was one review I didn't like. Why throw your solid and near perfect methods out the windows for this game?

    One complaint I agree with is the camera. That was a bad move and the combat but those were probably the biggest and most solid complaints.

    Maybe also the visuals how they lack contrast. Take for example Max Payne 2 and turn down the contrast to 20% and you've got Kane and Lynch visuals. But their excuse is solid and should be respected. It's not a bad choice to make an ugly game and that's something most "gamers" should respect and appreciate.

    Why should Gamers respect and appriciate a game that looks like slick Latex?
    Why should a Gamer like an ugly game?

    No, doesn't make sense.
    A game can cut back on graphics, true. But they still should look as decent as possible and everything else should be fluid then, because if costs are being cute away from graphics, it should land somewhere else.

    And oh please, don't call me a Graphic Whore.. I really don't need a good graphic, but the rest of the Game must be good~
    I don't even have a new Gen-Console, because I still play PS2 Games and Old-School Games.
    Next Gen-Console on my list is an Wii, not the Graphic-Console~

    Like I said, a game doesn't need to be top notch. But being downright ugly.. sorry, no.. Even the first Game looks better from what I have seen..

    nope. it ends abruptly.
  • steveosk8s  - also a point worth mentioning.
    i was one of the few people who really liked the first game, and for the most part i liked this one, but theres nothing memorable about it other than kane and lynch themselves. IO interactive is one of my favorite devs, but i dont understand how the team behind freedom fighters, one of my favorite games ever, fell off this hard.(note, the team that does kane and lynch is NOT the hitman team. the hitman team has been at work on hitman 5 since 2006)

    The game is playable and despite the faults there is SOMETHING about this game that makes me want to play it a 3rd time. Maybe it's the fresh look about it.

    Now ive seen this advertised since around march over on Youtube. Its admitedly not my style But it does catch my attention.

    Third person Ok. The aim looks; well rubbish. Mulitplayer sounds cool.

    But. Im not paying around £26 on Steam for it so Im not going to pick it up

    I couldn't even stand to watch this video for long in full screen. This Blairwitch bullshit needs to drop out of gaming right now. I didn't like it in movies and loathe it in games.

    Why the fuck would I want the game to sway and pitch when I'm trying to do precision shooting? With the extreme brevity of the game and the obnoxiously uncreative mechanics, I'm most assuredly going to steer clear.

    The game is "gritty and hardcore", but all the nudity is still censored? That's just pathetic. Gaming companies doesn't have enough balls to actually make a "gritty" and "hardcore" game
  • Chunkie Homie
    Games like Godfather II, Mafia II, and The Saboteur show breasts. Fallout 3 allows you to explode people and watch eyeballs roll around on the floor and that's not even the focus, but this game censors face shots. I suppose its for the theme.

    :eyebrow: But I thought Dog Days were over :music:

    also, Kane and Lynch are two pretty stock antihero names

    this game is hella lame. generic and repetitive. it's the same shit over and over and over, then helicopter, then same shit again. wanted to quit after 15 min, should've quit.

    I've just played the demo for Dog Days and I pretty much liked it. Yeah, it's a pretty standard shooter and it's got a good share of flaws, but I just can't help but like it. And I tought the camera gimmick was pretty cool, but again, I've just played the demo. XD

    About the first one, Dead Men, man I ABSOLUTELY LOVE that game. I mean, yeah, I can understand all the hatred towards it: the flaws are undeniable, the cover system is completely broken and the AI can be very dumb when it feels like it, but the story is pretty damn cool and the characters are really interesting. And I guess I'm just more of a "single-player gamer", if you know what I mean, so I don't pretty much care about the multiplayer in most of the games I play. =D

    I'm pretty sure that Bennett did that himself because you can't show nudity on Blip.tv
  • Bennett the Sage

    Oh no, that was them. The game censors the nudity.
  • DangerasTM
    no thats actually the camcorder angle intense violance (like a shotgun blast to the face) or nudity is pixalted

    I can kind of see what they were going for in this game but I think it should have been much more inspired than just Point A to Point B shooting.

    Even if it wasn't a good game I still don't see why Jim Sterling of Destructoid thought it was bad enough to give it a 1/10.
  • Thumper17
    You think this is bad?

    Theres a Kane and Lynch movie coming out.

    Bruce Willis is Kane.

    Jamie Fox is Lynch.

    No fucking lie.
  • DangerasTM
    ok Bruce as Kane is AWESOME! but jamie fox as a balding psycopath? i dont buy it
  • TheDudeThatsADude
    Good review Sage, but I do have one complaint. When you say "Shooting is all you do inn KaL2", I understand that the game gets tedious. However isn't that the point of most games? Modern Warfare 2? Overall, another great review.
  • Mikon
    avatar
    I would imagine players of MW2 would disagree, saying that things such as "tactics" are important, and that "teamwork" is important in single player. Or stuff like that.

    But, I mean, the genre is First/Third-Person Shooter, so yeah, shooting is obviously going to be a large component. It'd be nice if he'd elaborated. I feel a lot of Sage's reviews suffer from being too short. He never really explains, he just states.
  • ThatGuyWithTheSaxophone
    Great review! Sage, am I mistaken or did you, at the very beginning, compare GameStop to the mafia? XD I could not quite hear it out clearly...
  • mrskippy
    avatar
    Dude, Sage. You have really shitty luck picking out games. It's been a while since there has been a game you've given a positive review to...
  • whatever42
    avatar
    I was never really interested in this game. The only game I've really excited to see come out soon is Metroid: Other M. This game didn't click for me; it didn't look distinct enough from other third-person shooters to warrent a purchase.

    Thanks for the review Bennet. It seemed you had a similar opinion to what I would have about a game like this.
  • Jach
    There is not many points of this review i agree with, like: Does the time even matter?? The aiming i feel is maid more realistic.
    Shooting being tedious and boring?? I have always thought of the scene in Heath where theres a shootout in the streets in both K&L games.
  • Mikon
    avatar
    If you're purchasing it? Yes, the single-player campaign's length matters, especially since Sage stated the online co-op community is dead. If people can't be fucked to play online much, I can't see the competitive community having much staying power, and it doesn't sound like THAT is much of a value either, with only a few maps. So, a year from now, you'll either be shelling out more money for additional content, or be looking at a completely dead community, and just be left with the single player, which is lacking.
  • LandlordROB  - Maybe a bit too harsh.

    In my opinion, this game shouldn't be judged on the events that unfolded over the first game, because that should not affect the game's quality. Just because the director banged your wife, doesn't mean it makes the movie any worse. I quite enjoyed this game, and think that it's a definite improvement from the first. Its online is what's most likely going to keep it alive for the upcoming months, considering how short the campaign is. I never had a problem with the shooting mechanics, and felt that the documentary-style camera technique was a bold step that I thought worked well in differing it from other shooters, even though I'm sure lots of people are going to complain about it. It's not the best game, by far, but if a game entertains me enough, I can look past some of its flaws.

    It is a shame that this game tries to improve on its previous title and succeeds at making even more problems. Though I am a fan of this game and Im sure others are the characters are what make this game playable.... two of gamings most dynamic and intense characters need a third try, and hopefully the movie is not that third ( though the movie is going to suck)
  • Doresh
    avatar
    Great. A fake documentary style. Cause I can TOTALLY believe that a guy with a camera is following those guys...

    I enjoyed the game but you do make a few valid points, particulary the inconsistant damage done to the enemy - that got a bit tiresome near the end.

    A good rental title if nothing else.
  • ShadowBebop
