Much better than I expected!xenoturbella | Oct. 13, 2013 | See all xenoturbella's reviews »
I thought this game looked interesting when it was released but I was really put off by negative reviews. I bought it here in a recent sale though, and I was thoroughly entertained!
The game mechanics aren't the slickest. If somebody was a hardened FPS veteran with an itchy trigger finger then I can see why they might be underwhelmed. For many others they would likely just about be adequate for a challenge without getting frustrating or repetitive.
Aside from that the plot and characters are easily compelling enough to provide several hours of good solid entertainment just from the single player campaign. The graphics are a little unusual - but good and hold up well for a game a few years old. At it's current price I would say it is plenty of fun for the money and overall great value!
Decent shooter with some weird camera choices.FLD | Oct. 9, 2013 | See all FLD's reviews »
If you liked the original, this is essentially more of the same. Some weird aesthetic calls were made when it comes to the camera in this one, though. If you hate shaky cams, you're not going to be a fan of this one.
Other than that, Kane & Lynch themselves are still as despicable as ever and I think that alone makes the game worth a look. It's not too often you get characters this vile and repugnant in gaming and that's pretty interesting, I think.
Brilliant settingjazzozo | Oct. 8, 2013 | See all jazzozo's reviews »
The setting of this game is just brilliant. The gritty way you're following Kane & Lynch is done very well and this is a worthy successor to the first game. On the negative hand, it's way too short. Graphically it has an unique style which some may love and some may hate. Personally, I love it. The story and dialogue are good, but not as good as in the first game. If you loved the first game, this still is a must play!
Mindless ShooterRadovanh | Sept. 8, 2013 | See all Radovanh's reviews »
First Kane and Lynch was good shooter, so I thought the second try will be better. But it wasnt. Totally mindless shooter with some covering isnt for me good game, I was expecting more. Camera from third person going with our antiheroes is good, but that is all. Stupid game with stupid story with stupid main caracters is not very interesting for me. More exciting is some action outside the singleplayer story. Not bad for a try in some sale, but dont expect too much.
Good follow upandrewchaudoin | Aug. 13, 2013 | See all andrewchaudoin's reviews »
Kane and Lynch 2 is a great followup to Dead men. I like how the developers went the documentary style. The colors of Shanghai is what is really great. The shooting has definitely improved and so has the cover system. I like the variety of different guns, and it sticks to Chinese weaponry. The only downfall of the game is the short campaign. Overall I would say it is definately worth checking out, especially when the pack is on sale.
