is'nt that bad

on 11/1/2013

The controls in this game have issues. The cover system seems random and works when it feels like it. I can't understand why this game didn't include a cover button instead. The aiming feels off as well and there are times when it appears that you hit someone but the shot doesn't register. This wouldn't be so bad but certain missions have you shooting at people speeding by in bulldozers & helicopters. Read More

Review Kane & Lynch may have one of the most unfortunate titles in the history of games. Although the name may inspire thoughts of racial injustice, IO Interactive's spiritual successor to Freedom Fighters and follow up to Hitman: Blood Money has nothing to do with race relations. Even so, it will manage to raise an eyebrow or two with its visceral story and characters that almost save the title from its clunky gameplay...The game actually gets its title from the two stars of the game, Kane and Lynch. These are not your ordinary heroes. In fact, the game begins with the duo en route to death row. A mysterious paramilitary outfit that calls itself The7 breaks the two out. Kane, it seems, is a former member of the group and has a lot of money that they feel owed. Lynch, a medicated psychopath, is recruited to keep an eye on Kane while he gets The7 what they want. From there, the plot follows a series of twists, turns and betrayals with a whole lot of killing along the way...The enemy AI has just as many issues taking cover as you do. We've seen them press up against cover that doesn't exist and take cover on walls that leave them in plain sight. That is, of course, if they're even smart enough to do that, which isn't always the case. Call us crazy, but if we saw three friends who were standing right next to us get shot in the head one after another by a sniper rifle, we probably wouldn't sit in one place to wait and see what will happen. In Kane & Lynch, we've seen the AI do just that...Kane & Lynch is a game that many people will play through and enjoy simply because of the forceful story and characters. Others will find the gameplay isn't up to speed with the rest of the gaming world and wonder why anyone would bother. Frustration should never enter into a game because of the mechanics, but with Kane & Lynch it does. Loose gameplay, a brief campaign, and a single (albeit good) online mode with four maps hurt this title that could have been so much more.

Features
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.
Innovative Multi-Player Levels: Based on the game's themes for up to 8 players.
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.
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.
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: Repel from buildings, firing on the run or from moving vehicles, launch surprise attacks, lay down cover fire, and shoot blind from around corners, hurl smoke, tear, and incendiary grenades.

Quotes
Kevin Hall, Gamers' Temple Kane and Lynch is quite a good crime drama experience and serves as a plausible move away from the Hitman stealth series...
PSW Magazine UK ...a solid squad-based shooter with plenty of action, great characters, tight story and a slew of cinematic influences...
