Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

With the Hitman series already well established, Danish developer Io Interactive are not exactly masters of the family friendly game. This latest effort is their most violent and shocking yet, as you take control of reluctant mercenary Kane and his schizophrenic partner Lynch. Neither character likes the other but for the purposes of the story they have to work together in a series of violent third person shoot outs. By default you control Kane, with the computer or another player taking on the role of Lynch. As the game progress you will also be able to recruit a team of up to eight mercenaries, with your reputation determining the quality of the personnel applying for the job. Ordering your squad around is easy enough but since any of them, particularly Lynch, can have completely different objectives to you, they won’t always take orders – particularly if they’ve taken a dislike to you already - which is a real problem when you want them to administer some first aid.

Although it is much more action packed than the Hitman games, there are obviously similarities between the two games, with highly interactive environments and multiple ways to approach any problem. One particular highlight already demonstrated involves a kidnapping at a rave with Kane & Lynch firing into the air to disperse a large crowd of dancers before engaging in a brutal gun battle with security guards, as the sound and music system continues to flash and blare. If the rest of the game is just as inventive with its scenarios then Io may well keep Kane and Lynch alive for a little longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gung Ho Shooter, with a very cool feel 29 Nov 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, so the "hardcore" gamers here have found its not as raw as GRAW, well thats true. And if GRAW is a better game, who cares (I own both by the way) - thats not the point of K&L. If any of you have played Hitman and liked basically how cool it is, how it's a movie in a game (and now there's a movie of the game of course) but wanted more shooting, more explosions and less creeping about, then this is for you.

As for crack shot enemies etc, targeting problems etc. just play it through on the easiest "Aspirin" mode and have a blast - it's just like a film where the good guys never die! Then you can play with the online multiplayer to your hearts desire.

Relax, this is a fun game and I would recommend it to all. Just don't buy it over GRAW or Gears or something else that everyone says is amazing, if you're just going to moan about it afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars definitely under-rated. 20 Jan 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
so many reviews are slating this game. i really do think its quite excellent probably second only to mass effect in my xbox collection (with the usual candidates GOW and halo 3 way below). First of all I'd like to say a lot of the issues other people have with the game i jsut haven't had. I didn't find it too hard. It's challenging, yeah just like hitman. I didn't find aiming a problem, ok machines guns are hit and miss but a rifle is pretty much spot on, surely thats quite realistic? i didn't hate the story line, it's no enthralling quest like good ol' mass effect, thats for sure, but it isn't bad. it's definitely entertaining. I thought the cover system worked rather well. I think that playing this game is more like doing it in real life, in a way. Whereas you might be looking for cheap leg-shot kills and cover that makes you totally invulnerable in other games you won't find it here. I think as what it set out to be a games take on true Michael Mann style action movie its truly superb. Hosts of memorable levels, very good gameply (i think anyway) and good variety too. This isn't run shoot repeat like halo or GOW or the army boy approach of COD4 (which is pretty excellent admittedly), this is a more stylised film approach with much more vulnerable and edgy chracters. I'm a big fan of IO, loving hitman and the equally underated Freedom Fighters and i don't think this game disappoints at all. Whatever is said about this game it doesnt look like many people are sitting on the fence. And as for divided opinions go, my opinion is very high. If you like hitman, heat, collateral or miami vice then just try it. if you want halo 4, i really wouldnt say this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind 23 Dec 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Confused as to whether to get this game? too many conflicting reviews?

Ask yourself, do you like interesting, twisted characters and a great plot? do you like an element of strategy and team leadership in your games, do you like a realistic aiming system, (does anyone really think firing a real gun and hitting the target is as easy as it is in a video game? come on!)

I despair of people who bleat and complain about quality games such as this, either you 'get' just what this game is offering you or you don't, if you do then it will offer you one of the best gaming experiences you could hope for, games like this are special and only come along every once in a while, IO Interactive created Hitman, and they have another gem on their hands with Kane and Lynch, and I think they know it as they are already working on the sequel, it wouldn't surprise me if the Kane and Lynch series becomes a movie one day just as Hitman did, it would certainly make the transition better than Hitman, Lynch; a self medicating schizophrenic murdered his wife and didn't even know it, but we won't hold that against him, he is an absolute scream at times the way he behaves, his rantings and paranoid comments cracked me up time and time again in this game, he just can't help himself, when Kane says 'keep calm' the reply is 'I am calm, are you saying I'm not calm?' or was that Liam Gallagher, I forget.
Either way, I hope you enjoy this gaming gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars lo-interactive fans 9 Dec 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
hi just aquick review on this game which i have got.

For any one how has played the hitman series and freedomfigthers this game is for you!

The game is a mix between Hitman and Freedomfigthers. A brilliant story with intense fire figths all the way through. 2 different endings. Characters are well planned and designed.

Multiyplayer is not so good! All you do is rob banks, foodstores ect. witnin a time limit and not that much action. You play as the mercs/robbers and when you die via getting shot by bad a.i cops, you then help cops to hunt the thieves down. So cops and robbers. Although i do go ahead and play ounce you get into it, its good but first time you play M.P its a bit boaring.

Another brilliant game made by lo-interactive.

4.0 out of 5 stars A game where the action serves a story 19 Dec 2007
By Doc
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a good game. There may be nothing terribly new in the set up (bank robberies, underworld characters, twists aplenty) but that's how genre entertainment works - the enjoyment of spending time in a world we are familiar with. And this is a game that is fully aware of its generic antecedents. At times this feels like Heat, then Collateral, then Reservoir Dogs. The central characters are different though. Flawed, pyschotic, balding - these are not the run of the mill game heroes. And the game is all the better because of it. One of the true pleasures of the game is learning more about them.

A lot of the negative comments are to do with pacing. This is not a blazing action game. Rather, the action serves the story. However, the action is great: intense, thrilling, varied and immersive. The control system has also received a lot of criticism and I can't really understand why. It is intuitive and responsive. The targeting is not absolutely precise, more of a guide, and in a game aiming for a more realistic approach, this works very well. Similarly the effectiveness of the enemy is a good thing - you really feel that Kane and Lynch are vulnerable, meaning you take your time, plan ahead. The graphics are good and the whole thing has a style that feels right. Highly recommended.
