Kane & Lynch: Dead Men

 

Every once in a while a game comes along that starts the conversation anew about whether video games can be considered a form of art. Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is not one of those games. A violent tale of murder and betrayal, Kane & Lynch tries very hard...

In a season of really great shooters, Kane & Lynch is pretty much a dud. It's sort of a style over substance kind of game, except the style isn't even terribly impressive. The substance, what there is of it, amounts to a fairly so-so action game that's...

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Wouldn't it be nice to have a video game that would let you act out on your darkest impulse? It's the sort of impulse that would return both a reward and severe consequence if pursued in reality. Shooting heroin. Spearheading bank heists. Aside from...

You know, it's pretty f***ing amazing how f***ing long it's taken videogames to make common use of the F-word. Movies have been doing it for decades, but only in the last five years or so have videogames put to use the most versatile f***ing word in...

Some really good level design and interesting mission objectives ; Inventive multiplayer premise

Serious gameplay flaws ; Why can’t I play as Lynch ; There’s way too f***ing much f***ing swearing

Kane and Lynch: Dead Men has some good gameplay ideas that could have made for a better game, but numerous problems make the game too frustrating to truly enjoy the good stuff that’s here. What’s more, the swearing is simply over the top. If you want...

Kane & Lynch want you to hate them. There's just no two ways around it, the characters of Kane and Lynch do everything in their power to make you want them to fail. These men are absolutely unlikable, both men have spent the last few decades killing...

Kane & Lynch is a good idea that is plagued by poor controls, unbalanced weapons, a boring story and some questionable writing. That's not to say that you won't have a good time playing through this brief action game, but you will have to put up with a...

IO Interactive decided it was time to take a break from the Hitman series and try out co-op gaming, with not one, but two anti-heroes; and thus Kane & Lynch Dead Men was born. I'll admit, when the game was announced I felt that it could have been...

There’s been recent controversy over this game concerning a fired editor over at a particular gaming site. I fully agree with what he said. This game is severely flawed and his rating was more than appropriate for this particular game. Sloppy and...

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men review for the XBOX360

 

Grumpy Old Killers

Lots of personality; Outstanding action sequences; A wide variety of gameplay styles; Intriguing online multiplayer game

Unnatural camera position; Outdated graphics and A.I.; Sloppy cover system; Criminally short

There's a lot in this game to like. It's got real personality, and the well-wrought action sequences are among the best ever to appear in a game. Kane & Lynch could have been a stand-out title last generation, and there's no technical reason why it...

Deep down, I bet all of us at one time or another have wanted to be the bad guy... just once. Just to see what it's like, taste the betrayal, get involved in some of the most underhanded ways to get a job done. Well, fear not, IO Interactive and Eidos...

A solid, adrenaline fueled, fast action game with a great story and some solid acting. Disappointingly short campaign but a multiplayer that makes up for it. Its uniqueness is something that will appeal to a large amount of gamers.

Anti-hero games are your thing

You realize there is only so much money in the world and other games worth purchasing over this

Future generations of gamers will remember 2007 as the Year Of The Shooter. It might even be named that on the Chinese Calendar.

Quirky problems spoil this pair's clean getaway.

Another thing working in Kane and Lynch's favor is the presentation. The bank level alone is very intricate, dropping you into the parking lot and concluding in a subway station after a stop on a freeway overpass. The animation is great, especially...
