Excerpt: Pseudo-Third Person Shooters are here to stay, and in particular the gun-and-cover sub-genre is rising in popularity. Strolling further down The Path of Obvious Statements, it is also a shoo-in that franchises are “the next big thing” in gaming.
Summary: Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days improves upon the original, but not by much. The game doesn’t really push the story forward and the gameplay feels only slightly better. Multiplayer and Arcade Mode is where you’ll mostly find your fun and based upon the remarks of Kane, I don’t think we’ll see any Kane...
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: 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...
OXCGN’s Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days Review – Public Menance #1
1 September 2014
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.
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.
Summary: Malgré la médiocrité du premier opus, les développeurs d’IO Interactive ne se sont pas découragés et nous proposent des nouvelles aventures en compagnie du duo infernal qu’est Kane & Lynch.
Pros: Une ambiance unique, Une griffe visuelle efficace, Les fusillades bien péchues, Le mode Arcade
Cons: L’I.A. qui recourt à certains artifices pour pallier sa faiblesse, Une durée de vie absolument indigne, Les deux compères ont perdu de leur éclat, Très monotone, Pas beaucoup de rebondissements, Aucun rythme, Le multijoueur et son lag
Summary: Kane & Lynch Dog Days is alleen voor fans van dikke shootouts geschikt. En dat is jammer, omdat meer afwisseling in de gameplay en een meer substantiële uitwerking van het verhaal de game echt boven de acht hadden kunnen uittillen.
