Reviews for Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days

Decent Co-op Shooter

It plays exactly like the first game in the series. It's a third person shooter with decent graphics, levels, and characters. Like the first game, the campaign can be played in co-op. This game is fairly short. I recommend picking this one up only when on sale and if you liked the first game.

It's a game.. I guess

Do not waste your time with either of the Kane & Lynch games. They are buggy, blatantly unfinished concepts and unoriginal concepts at that. It's just your basic shooter with horrible controls, no importance to the substance of the game. There's many better games you could buy for this price.

Dog Days indeed

I don't think this game is the pile of excrement that many seem to. That being said, it's pretty bad. It has all the problems of the first, yet amplified and with more piled on top. It somehow looks worse, the controls are wonky, the cover mechanic is broken, sometimes people shoot through walls, and other times you become invincible even popping out of cover. Overall, this is a pretty poorly made game. Th original may be worth a sale price, but not this. There are worse games, but this is far from worth playing.

Why does people hate this game?

Sorry for the "question" tittle thing.. but seriously, the reasons I can find why people hate on this game this much: ♦Not good length ♦Very HARD (you die with a few shots) ♦No very great cover mechanics.. ♦History mode might be vague without much explanation. SO yeah, tho all those are valid points to mark as very negative... I don't think it deserve that much hate, I feel very bad that this game because the bad reputation it got, we don't have a 3rd installment of the franchise. The game what I think was made for, is like an homage to those 80's, and early 90's action movies, with dumb plot, a lot of shooting, blood and drugs (al'pachino scarface, above the law among others) This game is indeed a 1 ride that I doubt you will replay ever again, but I can assure you, that it is worth it, just for that ONE ride for see developers who make the game that nobody else would dare to make (I personally consider this game, as the dark souls of 3rd person action shooting) Wish I could give a higher score, but the negative points I mark at the begin of this review, are justified. Have fun!

Short but Sweet

This game is short, but it is still a great game. The camera style (think handheld personal camera uploaded to youtube) works really well. The story is pretty good as is the script. The amount of detail in the city environments is pretty amazing. It's hard to find games where the city actually feels alive, but Kane & Lynch 2 pulls it off wonderfully. The graphics in this game are pretty good as well. As far as gameplay goes, the firefights are intense and action packed. Guns seem to have true to life accuracy which is rare in games these days. After playing I have mostly positive things to say about this game. My only two complaints are that the ending left me disappointed and that there were a couple of odd glitches that happened in key points of the game that made me have to reload from the last checkpoint (thankfully checkpoints are aplenty).
