Kane and Lynch 2 is a mixture of many underwhelming and poorly implemented gameplay elements. Even the nifty visual look style and the occasional funny line of dialogue cannot prevent the game from being generally unimpressive. You play mostly as the...

Kane & Lynch:Dog Days tries to differentiate itself from other third-person shooters with its gritty presentation and hard action. The core shooting mechanics isn't particularly great but the system is definitely better than the first game. But it is...

Dog Days can be held up as an example of a great idea, rushed and poorly executed. Even if the PC Kane & Lynch 2 community rivalled that of console, we still don't think we'd stick around to play Dog Days multiplayer when there are so many better...

The original Kane & Lynch was one of the greatest missed opportunities the gaming world has ever seen. While the gritty storyline and simply hateful characters provided a wonderful backdrop for some delightfully gory shootouts, a distinct lack of...

There’s a dearth of good third-person shooters available on the Mac. Still, this doesn’t mean Kane & Lynch is any more worthy of your time and money. Games can be gritty and raw, but Dog Days' gameplay is an unpolished and sloppy mess. What could...

A recommendation for Dog Days isn't hard, though it is filled with qualifications. If the story and characters haven't caught your interest yet, or if you're just not interested in crime thrillers, then there's probably not going to be enough in Kane...

I really enjoyed the original Kane & Lynch. Sure, the graphics were a few years behind, the controls could have been better and it lacked online co-op. And there was that whole Gerstmann-Gate thing, which actually left me feeling more sorry for the...

by Dakota Grabowski, August 23, 2010 The best way to describe Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days would be to simply state the following: Kane was like “Bam!” and Lynch was all like “Pow!” and I was like “WTF!” It’s essentially a title that attempts to be more...

It's tough to review a sequel that no one really desperately wanted. Eidos and their new overlords at Square Enix decided that making a sequel to a game that most people didn't exactly love was a good move, so the team at IO Interactive got to work...

By The Review Crew on 70

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days significantly one-ups the previous entry in the series, but still has a ways to go. The visuals are a bit of fresh air, even though some HD TV owners might question the downgraded-looking graphics. Some clumsy controls mar the...

By Total Video Games on 70

Although an improvement over the original, Dog Days - like its predecessor - is a game of two halves: a disappointing single-player somewhat rectified by enjoyably innovative and strategic multiplayer modes. We wouldn't have too many problems with the...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days was reviewed on the Xbox 360.When it comes to a brutal duo, it doesn’t get much bloodier than the two antiheroes Kane & Lynch. Their video game debut back in 2007 laid the groundwork for a very interesting original series,...

This gritty cover-based shooter is better than its predecessor, but as a package, it's light on...

Better than the first game, and an amazing technical achievement, but the shooting needs work to fully realise its...

International Review By Videospielkultur on 30

Kane & Lynch 2:Dog Days kann leider nicht überzeugen. Shanghai als Schauplatz wird wunderbar düster und kalt dargestellt, doch einmal davon abgesehen, scheitert der Titel an allem anderen. Die Story, die mit ihren beiden interessanten Protagonisten...

International Review By Subdogs on 80

Skitigt, rörigt och brutalt mänskligt Sedan det första spelet har Lynch börjat ett nytt liv i Shanghai. Eftersom han har en stor vapensmuggling på gång så ber han Kane komma och hjälpa till. Tanken är att de ska kunna dra sig tillbaka när jobbet är...

International Review By Digitale-Generation on 74

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days ist schmutzig und gnadenlos. Die Inszenierung ist soweit gelungen, doch die Story eher schwach. Zudem wiederholt sich eigentlich alles recht häufig und die Spielzeit ist schlicht zu kurz. Die Hauptcharaktäre sind dafür noch...

International Review By Gamezoom.net on 70

Krasse YouTube-Optik, noch mehr Handlung sowie zusätzliche Sympathiepunkte für die beiden „Helden“ des Spiels. Trotz dieser vielen Verbesserungen bzw. Neuerungen konnte mich Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days nicht überzeugen. Das lag vor allem an den...
