Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days

Fragland
9 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Three years ago Kane and Lynch: Dead Men was released and although the reviews weren’t really bad the game did fail on a few things: no online co-op, short, graphics could be better, … IO Interactive now unleashes a sequel onto us: Dog Days. Hopefully there’s improvement.

  • Summary: While gravely flawed, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men had soul. Dog Days does not. Lobotomized characters and a throwaway narrative do nothing to bolster mediocre gameplay. Easily one of the most formulaic games I’ve ever played, Dog Days repeatedly relegates you to one room-clearing mission after another –...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
16 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Adam “Kane” Marcus and James Lynch are, for some reason, back, with an adventure perhaps even more ridiculous and nonsensical than their last. Since escaping death row in the original game, they appear to be best friends, despite the fact that they clearly despise each other with every fibre of...

Dog Days Indeed

  • Conclusion: Ordinarily, gameplay and overall scores tend to fall in lock step. After all, if a game isn't fun, what's the point of everything else? With Kane & Lynch 2 , however, enough was done with the presentation and story that it's worth seeing. Barely.

Worse Than The First

Game Informer
17 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: A direct sequel with improved gunplay, but no soul Graphics: Character and environment details are masked beneath grainy filters and shaky camerawork. These effects add to the documentary presentation Sound: A non-stop barrage of gunfire and expletives Playability: Gunplay is significantly...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days Review

G4
17 August 2010
  • Summary: Scumbag criminals Kane and Lynch reunite for what was supposed to be a simple arms deal in Shanghai. The new shaky-cam presentation adds to the overall emphasis on "grittiness" and realism, though little else in Dog Days benefits from the same sort of inspired choices.
  • Pros: Multiplayer modes play to your devious, mistrustful nature, Tons of intense firefights in exotic and gorgeous (and highly destructible) locales, Unusual (and optional) shaky-cam presentation greatly enhances the overall realism
  • Cons: Story mode is unforgivably short, Almost no boss battles, Core mechanics adamantly refuse to evolve or present new challenges

  • Excerpt: Kane and Lynch's trek through Shanghai's underworld is astoundingly brief, leaving you just enough time to get a feel for the game's great visual style, but not much else.

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

GameSpot
17 August 2010
  • Summary: For two guys who debuted as Dead Men back in 2007, Adam "Kane" Marcus and James Seth Lynch are in pretty good shape. Kane's nose is no longer broken, Lynch's medication is keeping his inner psycho under control, and their gritty second outing improves upon the first in just about every way.
  • Pros: Interesting visual style, Satisfying gunplay with weapons that really pack a punch, Multiplayer modes can be a lot of fun
  • Cons: Story mode is only around four hours long, Online modes suffer from noticeable lag, Limited selection of multiplayer modes and maps, Action doesn't take long to get repetitive, Disc version needs patching to fix serious in-game camera problems
