"Kane & Lynch: Dead Entertaining"

I bought this game on the premise that the entire world hated it. In the end, I found it to be incredibly enthralling and had some of the most interesting characters in video gaming history. The game was bombarded a fair bit for its graphic use of language. And when looking at the game more than a once over, this is rather for an obvious reason.

Kane and Lynch are not good guys. You wouldn't trust Kane with your car, because he'd drive it, sell it and use the money to have some guy break your window. You wouldn't trust anything with Lynch because he'll go psychotic and kill it. These guys were on death row for a damn good reason, and the game does not try to excuse them for this.

The gameplay is very similar to the Hitman games, probably because it is from the same developers. You can swap your weapons with other members of your team (Why give someone else a better pistol in the first place? Take it back!), and taking cover is as simple moving up at an angle to a corner…which does get a little tricky at times.

The story is quite interesting, taking you from back streets escaping the cops, to shoot out in clubs with dancers running in panic everywhere, to the jungles of Cuba. The graphics, for their time, are also relatively pretty, although some of the environments are rather bland. There is a multiplayer, but I've never been a fan of it, so haven't tried it yet.

In the end, Kane and Lynch is definitely a niche game, liked only those who go for a rather particular look/feel in games, and not ones rated the highest possible by some guy in the states.

Description

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 will immerse players into an emotionally intense crime drama with unflinching action. Io-Interactive’s proprietary technology will deliver 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.

Features:
  • 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, 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.
  • 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 8 players.
