Kane and Lynch: Dead Men is the new action shooter franchise by Io-Interactive, creators of the multi-million selling Hitman series. Kane & Lynch: Dead Men follows the violent and chaotic journey of two men - a flawed mercenary and a medicated psychopath - and their brutal attitude towards right and wrong. This volatile partnership combined with innovative technologies allow for an unparalleled gaming experience.
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men immerses players in an emotionally intense crime drama with unflinching action. Io-Interactive's proprietary technology delivers fluid high definition graphics and lighting; highly destructible environments; massive crowd AI; single, co-op, and squad-based combat; a cinematic interface; and non-stop dialog between Kane and Lynch. The title also features innovative two-player co-op and groundbreaking online game play.
Tense and unpredictable experience: This is the violent and chaotic journey of two men: a flawed mercenary and a medicated psychopath. Each hates the other but must work together to save themselves and possibly the ones they love. Play Kane in single-player mode and either character in two-player co-op mode.
Violence erupts in meticulously created 'safe' worlds: Realistic and responsive environments and crowds react when events get of out control. Crowded nightclubs and calm bank offices become scenes of sudden terror. Manipulate the environments and crowds strategically to complete objectives.
Wide variety of intense 3rd person game play: Rappel from buildings; fire on the run or from moving vehicles; launch surprise attacks, lay down cover fire, and shoot blind from around corners; and hurl smoke, tear, and incendiary grenades.
Fast and intuitive combat: Lead a crew of criminal mercenaries to increase your chance of surviving and reaching your goals. You can also fight alone as your crew AI will automatically draw fire, throw grenades, lay down cover, and engage in close combat with their own signature moves.
Two-player co-operative game play: Team up and play the full story with a friend as either Kane or Lynch. On the big jobs, split the command of your crew. At any point in the game you can choose to play the next, or previous, levels in co-op.
Innovative multi-player levels based on the game's themes for up to eight players.
Kane and Lynch feels like you were in a middle of an action movie. It's intense, fast paced, offers suprisingly good plot. It's not for everyone though. Some things characters(especially Lynch)do are gruesome, to say the least. The game is fairly short, but it doesn't matter, as it's so fast ad tiring, you won't last long enough to complete it in one go. Graphics are ok, by today's standards. Voice acting is one of the kind, superb, although characters swear a lot. It doesn't sound exaggerated though! Adds realism to them, and makes Kane and Lynch believable characters. To sum it all up, Kane and Lynch: Dead Men is a great, fast paced third person shooter. Offers very good plot for such a game too!
The original Kane & Lynch is definitely far superior to its predecessor. That being said, it's still nothing special. It has great dialogue between the two protagonists, and pretty enjoyable combat. There isn't a whole lot of variety between missions, levels or enemies, making it feel like you're doing the same thing over and over. On top of that, it's pretty short and the story it has isn't that great and isn't fleshed out at all. it's a decent title, but nothing amazing/
You will see this game OFTEN on sale, and lemme tell ya, for 1.74 this game is totally worth it, though is short I found myself replaying it over and over again, and is always good to jump back in after a year or so, because this game graphics and gameplay are very solid. When the game just came out I couldn't believe the graphics it had at the time, and probably now days people will say it has "bad graphics" when it doesn't. Letting graphics aside, like I already mention gameplay it's also good, history mode wont blow your mind away, but it has a very cool ending, at least for me I like it, it was a very fitting endings. For sure better then it's sequel, give it a try, if you like shooting action games, i'm sure you will enjoy this one. Have fun!
I want to play this game for a long time but that time my PC bad/ No money to purchase the game and don't want to pirate it. I'm grab the game during the discount and I think the developer make quite good game that enjoy. I think this game make me think of GTA Heist that people play now a day. But this game have some small problem but it not serious for me overall i think it a good game and I would recommend it to my friend :) Very good game
So during the sale I bought a lot of things for my friends and a few things for myself. Two of the things I got for myself were from the recommendation of another. I had just finished Spec Ops: The Line and wanted another TPS, and a friend said I should get Kane and Lynch 1 and 2 (they were both four dollars). When these games came out, they weren't negatively received or anything - they just were received as pretty much average, and therefore they faded into obscurity, basically. A lot of people don't like them. Having played the first one in full and some of the second one, I'm not surprised that in this world where a lot of people like things such as Skyrim this is the case. The game develops the two main characters really, really well. You get a sense of who they are and what they are trying to do more so than other games. There's little subtle things like hearing events of Kane's life in the past when you're on the ground about to possibly die, hearing mortally wounded police on the ground quietly breathe and beg to be spared, saying things like "please...I have a family", the fact that a lot of the NPCs that fight by your side lack any sort of empathy whatsoever, and most prominently, Lynch speaking to himself constantly throughout the game, with his psychotic tendencies very apparent. There's actually a scene where he ends up executing a bunch of hostages that need to be kept alive. I didn't know until just recently that if you play co-op, the person controlling Lynch actually lives out these events and hallucinates the hostages as being SWAT members. The ultimate irony is that all these sort of things on an individual level are more human of moments than Spec Ops is collectively with pretty much it's entire story - when that's a game that is supposed to be completely about that sort of thing. By the end of the game, the story I'd played felt very true and structured - not common in shooters. Why these games got 6 and 7 out of 10s is beyond me.
