Summary: I was really excited for this game. This game reminded me of the big heist scene in "Heat." The game features two great characters and a good storyline. However, two parts where the game falls flat are the graphics and the gameplay.
Summary: In all fairness, I really wanted to like this game. I gave it a fair shot and rented it out. After completing it, I've decided that Kane & Lynch had a lot of potential that got turned into a 16-level rehash of Michael Mann's bank robbery scene from the movie Heat .
OVERRATED...had potential but, didn't live up to the hype.

Summary: I'm a big fan of this genre of games, but this game COULD be so much better. The gameplay is TOO SLOW...comparing it other games like this. I bought it right whne it was released because, I saw a quick view of it on a website...I wish I waited. It's playable..
Summary: Overall, I am pretty disappointed with Kane & Lynch. Usually Eidos makes really great games, like Hitman, so I had high expectations for this title. The graphics for this game are so-so and kinda of glitchy -- for example, your characters sometimes walk through walls or other people.
Summary: This game is pretty bad. Story is cliché. Game play is one notch above unplayable. AI is atrocious. Some scenes are unnecessarily difficult. I was really looking forward to this game for some reason and while it's more or less what I expected premise-wise, they simply did nothing right.
Summary: I probably should've stopped playing Call of Duty 4 when I played this game because I think it influenced my opinion (COD4 is amazing in every way). I was also pretty excited about this game since I started reading about it a few months ago, so I may have had elevated expectations for it.
Dont waste your money and buy Call of Duty 4 instead.

Excerpt: This game looked so promising but let down in its expectations. I was devestated with this purchase, so much I took it back 6 days after having the product. The game is centered around Kane and Lynch, two men who have broken out of jail and are now fighting their way through a variety of different...
had potential as a great crime sim but lost it with it's shortcomings.

Excerpt: Kane & Lynch, what can i say about this title? well, you either love it or you hate it. It's that simple. You play the part of Kane a man standing of the destruction of his own life trying as hard as he might to salvage what he can.
