The weapons and enemies in K&L can be lacking in excitement, this is perhaps because the game keeps them down to earth. You do not get any super weapons or enemies. The arsenal ranges from pistols and sub-machine guns to shotguns and RPGs. The...

Hate cops? Kane & Lynch's designers sure hope so -- butchering pork is a major pastime for the titular "heroes" of this third-person shooter from IO Interactive. Of course, you'll kill plenty of criminals, too. And civilians. And security...

Game characters are often mute ciphers, stereotypes or one-dimensional cartoon cut-outs. Intriguing anti-heroes Kane and Lynch, however, provide a memorable pairing in an intense and abrasive action adventure. Hollywood likes them, too: their...

Kane & Lynch may have one of the most unfortunate titles in the history of games. Although the name may inspire thoughts of racial injustice, IO Interactives spiritual successor to Freedom Fighters and follow up to Hitman: Blood Money has nothing to...

After years of delivering satisfying stealth-based gaming with their Hitman series, Io Interactive trades the premeditated sneaky kills of Agent 47 for the orchestrated chaos and carnage of the titular death-dealing duo of Kane and Lynch: Dead Men....

Deep down, Kane and Lynch isnt a bad game -- it just needed a little more spit and polish to make it a great game. Its a tale of two death-row mercenaries whose lives become intertwined after they meet during a ride in the same prison van, which is...

Sick of the usual hero-villain dynamic, where the good guy always wins through while the bad guy falls off a cliff/crashes in a vehicle/is blown up amid maniacal laughter? So are developers IO Interactive by the look of things, hence Kane & Lynch:...

International Review By Digitale-Generation on 79

Das Spiel ist gut - keine Frage. Doch über die Art und Weise auf der man hier seine Ziele erreichen muss ließe sich, sagen wir mal - kontrovers diskutieren. Entwickler I/O Interactive hat hier eine Idee verarbeitet, die zwar interessant, aber...

International Review By FZ.se on 50

Goda människor hör inte actiongenren till. Men Kane och Lynch är något extra. De skjuter först, skjuter igen och skiter blankt i att fråga. Kane, legoknekt med en familjetragedi och ett kraftfullt misslyckande i en kriminell organisation bakom sig....
