Kane And Lynch 2: Dog Days (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) Review
13 October 2010
Excerpt: Kane and Lynch 2 is a third person, duck and cover shooter where you make some dark deals with some even darker people, steal as much money as you can and try to get away scot-free. While all of this sounds like an exciting gaming experience that most people wouldn't hesitate to try out, Kane and Lynch 2 provides an exciting, chaotic experience and proceeds to make it boring.
Conclusion: The single player campaign is only about 7-8 hours, depending on how much you struggle against the tough AI. What really makes Dog Days a recommendable title is its solid multiplayer, especially Cops and Robbers and Undercover Cop. Cops and Robbers is pretty much what you’d expect. As robbers you lead a heist as you try to make escape the scene with whatever goods you have.
Excerpt: 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 on
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. Also, we experienced a fairly crippling technical issue while testing the Xbox 360 version.
Excerpt: After so much speculation on the internet and a variety of impressive trailers, Kane & Lynch 2 Dog Days has finally arrived on PS3, XBox 360 and PC. Although the original title received mixed reviews, the gaming community was split on whether it was a good game but 3-years later, protagonists Adam ‘Kane’ Marcus and James Seth ‘Lynch’ have returned and developers IO Interactive have addressed the issues from the original.
Conclusion: Kane and Lynch: Dead Men was more or less carried by its story and morally reprehensible lead characters. Despite being technically messy it was never boring, and the developers at IO Interactive have delivered a sequel that attempts to capitalise on what worked, whilst stripping out what didn’t. The result is one of the most intense gameplay experiences of the year.
OXCGN’s Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days Review – Public Menance #1
1 September 2010
Conclusion: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is the successor to the 2007 third person shooter from Eidos Interactive (Square Enix), Kane and Lynch: Dead Men. The two degenerates Kane and Lynch are back , but now they’re older, they’re tired and they’re in it for that fabled ‘one last job’ as they say. It all begins as Lynch (James Seth Lynch) calls Kane (Adam “Kane” Marcus) to China to help him out with a big job with a lovely big fat final payout; just a simple bit of ‘gun-running’ from...
Summary: Pour conclure cette critique de Kane & Lynch 2, je crois que nous avons besoin de ces jeux accessibles facilement., moins impliquant, qu’on peut dévorer rapidement comme on le ferait avec un film par exemple. N’étant pas mémorable, il ne manque toutefois pas grand-chose pour que Kane & Lynch 2 soit considéré un excellent jeu. Je blâme entre autres le manque de profondeur de l’histoire qui ne sert à mon avis qu’à justifier le fait de devoir tirer partout.
Pros: Un jeu dynamique et amusant Dialogues et interactions entre Kane et Lynch Beaucoup d’armes La caméra peut déranger certains Les modes multijoueurs Coopération 2 joueurs Système de couverture
Cons: Histoire très banale Peu de variété dans les niveaux Impression de déjà vu Quelques bogues gênants Relativement court
