5.0 out of 5 stars Simply incredible
This game was everything i hope it to be, it was exciting, it certainly wasnt nice and i loved every second of it. It's strange when you play this game because you will probably find yourself disliking the two characters because you know very little about them, and what you do know isnt very good, with Kane all you know is that hes suspected of killing his wife and hes a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Its Flawed Sure, But Its Still Fun!
Upon release Kane and Lynch was generally met with poor reviews from magazines, and having played it there is certainly plenty to forgive. Both the cover and aiming systems are virtually broken, and add to that the inept squad you have to contend with who generally do little but get in your way, it is often a frustrating game to play.

= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Kane & Lynch: Dead Men Special Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This game was everything i hope it to be, it was exciting, it certainly wasnt nice and i loved every second of it. It's strange when you play this game because you will probably find yourself disliking the two characters because you know very little about them, and what you do know isnt very good, with Kane all you know is that hes suspected of killing his wife and hes a complete psycho and with Lynch all you know is that hes on death row and has neglected his daughter but as you play through the game you find out they're not as bad as they sound as theres far more to them, Kane isnt just a murdering psycho and Lynch isnt just a neglectful, criminal dad, you find out their back stories and who they are, you find yourself starting to feel sorry for these 2 guys who have had rough lives and you start to feel sorry for them, then you start to connect with them, this then really draws you in to the fantastic story line. From the exciting first level where your escaping death with Kane to the exciting climax at the end which offers you 2 ways of ending the game, both options offer very different outcomes and really offer you a chance to make the 2 characters true colours show. Onto replay value, and this has it, not only are the levels so exciting you find yourself actually wanting to play them again even though you know how to do them and how they will end but it also offers a great co-op story which gives you a little more look at Kane's character and it also offers a very fun online play. Before i finish up this review i should point out the language in this is ridiculous, i have no problem with swearing but this has so much of it its stupid, every other word seems to be swearing so keep that in mind depending on who your buying this for. Overall this game is a great, great game and i loved it and would suggest it to anyone.

This review is from: Kane & Lynch: Dead Men Special Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Upon release Kane and Lynch was generally met with poor reviews from magazines, and having played it there is certainly plenty to forgive. Both the cover and aiming systems are virtually broken, and add to that the inept squad you have to contend with who generally do little but get in your way, it is often a frustrating game to play.

Underneath its shortcomings though there is a stylish looking shooter, with impressive movie style cut scenes and some nice looking settings and level design. The gameplay, flawed as it is, can often be dramatic and tense with the occasional moment of brilliance during the frantic shoot-outs, and the immersive story with its unfolding of the central characters own personal stories make it well worth sticking with, despite its flaws.

3.0 out of 5 stars When Kane Met Lynch, 11 July 2010

This review is from: Kane & Lynch: Dead Men Special Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
First things first before I go onto my review I should warn people who suffer severely from strobes NOT to buy this game as there are some levels with a lot of severe strobing. There are also a few migraine style effects like when your character regains conscioussness at the start but that's only for a few seconds.

Now here my review. I went to my regular video game shop the other day and bought this because it was cheap. After reading many reviews and comments in the past, my expectations were not too high or low, however this is better than I expected. I'm only a few levels in but it's not as uncontrollable as some gamers say. I find the over use of explitive language a bit too much for me but then I suppose these game developers are trying to show a more realistic side to their characters. Perhaps this games biggest problem is it's not as fun as Hitman (another franchise this company created). Perhaps given more time the Developers could've found ways where Kane and Lynch could've disposed of enemies and pinched their identities in order to carry out a robbery or could just have allowed us gamers a bit more room to mess around etc. I'm not saying it would've had to have been like GTA but a little bit more freedom would be nice. That said if you can accept a little less freedom and ARE NOT AFFECTED BY SEVERE STROBING then rent it at least.
