Now on to the performance of the game. The shooting mechanic is vastly improved in this game, and the cover system works perfectly. About 99% of the game runs beautifully at a very constant frame rate and the action blends nicely into the ongoing dialog the two characters, Kane and Lynch, carry on throughout the game. Also, I actually enjoyed what they did with the camera, making it look like the entire experience was recorded.
So in closing, if you really, REALLY want this game, go ahead and throw $60 out the window. But if you can be patient, and learn from my horrible mistake, either rent it or wait for the price to come way down.
The story is almost non-existent. It's Mario Bros. Two guys fighting their way through each level, trying to rescue the girl. That's it. It, obviously, continues with the same two irredeemable and unlikable lead characters from the first game that one feels no connection to or interest in.
Also, like the first Kane & Lynch, it tries far too hard to be edgy. As a fan of cleverly applied foul language, I'm put off when a game is so blatantly trying to appeal to twelve year old boys with excessive use of the 'F-word'. It comes across fake and insincere and patronizing.
It has one note of gameplay. You run through hallways shooting people, until you get to the other side. Then a new level loads and you shoot through another hallway, shooting more people. Four hours later, the game is over.
Many have rightfully complained that while length is not everything, it's hard to justify a full retail price for a four hour game. I agree, but I also would not have wanted to sit through another four hours of the same tiring, boring, monotonous action. In fact, I started looking forward to the end arriving, by about the third hour.
Multiplayer has potential, but falls flat. Part of that is due to the poor matchmaking, which seems dated. You'll spend a lot of time waiting in lobbies for people to join and games to start. The loading screens between games, joining lobbies, leaving lobbies, returning to lobbies from games are lengthy and a bit frustrating. There also isn't any host-migration, which has come to be expected in modern multiplayer games.Read more ›
First things first. When people fantasize about a "Heat"-esque game, I'm sure there's only one thing that comes to mind: epic street-level shootouts involving scads of ammo, automatic weapons, cops, shattering glass, screaming pedestrians and duffel bags slung over the shoulder. I'm pretty confident no one wants to play a "Heat" game that revolves around your ruined relationship with your wife and stepdaughter, or meetings in diners with arch-rivals.
If we can agree on that, then I'm here to tell you that Kane & Lynch 2 is as close as you're going to get to a Heat-esque experience in the gaming medium. The entire single player story is one brutally violent street-level shootout after another, while the multiplayer modes masterfully evoke the tense feeling of being in a gang of like-minded criminals who will do anything to go home with a bigger cut - including killing their teammates in cold blood.
Kane & Lynch 2 also inhabits its own game space with the kind of confidence few games can manage. That is to say, everything is of a piece and seems the result of a singularity of vision so rare in these times when games seem content to come to you, when it should be the other way around. So few games challenge players to really accept things on the game's level - also see Dead Rising, ...Read more ›
The downsides to the game would be the camera angle is a little weird.You run and it shakes really bad,when you get a headshot the person you shot head turns blurry,the online is a joke.
Overall this game is a 7/10
