Target not that easy or Kane & Lynch

Summary: This game is okay. I bought this for the PS3, when it comes to shooting your target it's hard. Because when you try to get the mark on the target you go too much to the left or to much to the right and buy the time you get the mark on the target, they have been shot already.
Summary: I've seen many mixed reviews on this game so I didn't really know what to expect with it but overall it was worth buying. The game often feels forced and this really takes away from the fun and limits replay value. The graphics are not that great, the controlls are not bad and I didn't have any issues with the camera. About 4-6 hours to play through depending on what kind of gamer you are.
Would make a great movie, but as a game it's a letdown

Summary: A man on death row is busted out of his prison transport and is thrust into a violent game of do or die. That man is Kane, his newly-appointed partner is Lynch. They are both class-A scumbags, and they have to work together despite the fact that there's no love or mutual respect for each other. What follows is a strictly linear traipse through many different environments ranging from bank vaults to Japanese night clubs.

Summary: Kane and Lynch is a co-op based third person shooter. The game's dark storyline and interesting characters and character development add personality to an otherwise lackluster shooter. The game can be thought of as a combination between a third-person shooter and a squad game. Playing the game involves a lot of use of cover and blind shooting, similar to Gears of War. You can aim more carefully, which zooms your view in (there's no first-person mode, though).
Summary: The best game for PS3? No. But it is a damn good game to play. I really enjoy games that follow this genre of story. I'm tired of every game that comes out where you have to kill an alien. They didn't fully utilize the power of the PS3 for graphics but overall they're pretty good graphics. The story is a little unbelieveable at times, especially the Lynch character, but the Lynch character does add some humor to the game.
Summary: First lets start with what is wrong. Yeah the game play is a little laggy, I personally hate the controls, and I thought the story play was totally unbelievable. One second your in a prison, then to a bank, then to amazon rain forest. Seriously?! The aiming is messy, and I found the zoom on most weapons to be sub-par. I also personally had trouble aiming while in cover, or getting into cover for the matter as well. But I do love this genre of game.
Summary: If you don't like crime movies with tons of swearing and blood, then you'll hate Kane and Lynch. Yes it's very violent and pretty much every other word that comes out of the character's mouths is the F-word, so if you're easily offended, stay away. Since I don't mind swearing or blood, I rented it and it wasn't AS bad as people said it was. It was still bad, though.
Summary: This game is crazy tight! If you ever seen the movie "Heat" with Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer that is how it plays out. I think these poor reviews are being written by parents due to how violent this game is. In short, you must kill everybody who gets in your way to achieve your objective. Civilians, cops, guards ect... This is not a game for little kids!
