I tried to play this but it was just that bad!

Summary: Where do I start? The hitmarkers in this game are atrocious, you die constantly and if that's not bad enough there's no cover, so you're constantly being killed by snipers and what was the final straw? For me, it was the level with the dump truck. No matter how many times I shot the glass out the driver wouldn't die thanks to the poor hitmarkers and unrealistic muzzle rise.
Summary: Not much more to say about it. Controls are horrible, graphics are absolutely abysmal, gameplay sucks and is so generic, there are very few weapons and they are all really bad, but at least the story was cool for maybe 2 of the 12 missions i played. The rest was so stupid and pointless and i will never again play this garbage. I actually broke the disc into a million pieces because that's how horrible it was. Don't waste your time with this garbage.
Summary: How this game recieves any priase at all baffles me; Kane & Lynch is a remarkably poor game with controls and important gameplay features that are obviously all kinds of broken and buggy. Major features like hiding behind cover so you don't get shot and killed are designed in such a lousy way, you're lucky if you can get it to work. Even if it does work, there's still a 50+% chance you'll still get shot.
Summary: My boyfriend and I like to play co-op games such as halo, army of two and others. He heard from someone that Kane & Lynch was a co-op game so we gave it a try. It seemed very slow, not enough action. The controls were not very friendly, the story wasn't thrilling enough to maintain wanting to play and it just wasn't really worth it. We decided to trade it in and get Army of Two, which on the otherhand was AWESOME!
Summary: This most recent game from the makers of Hitman proves to be one of the more disappointing games I have experienced in recent years. The controls are horrible, the characters are unlikeable, the AI is abysmal, and the graphics look like a first generation PS2 game. Even more perplexing is that the game is based around coop between the two title characters yet the game doesn't feature any online coop.
Summary: I own 34 games, which include the Burger King games, Beuwolf, and this is the worst of them all. At least I knew going in what I was getting with the others. Why buy this when you can instead flush your cash down the toilet and save time on shipping.
Summary: I have been gaming for years and this was the first game I have ever rented; luckily. I usually buy games new or buy them used. I am so happy I rented this terrible game and didn't blow any money on it. Actually, I take that back. I'm still a bit upset that I wasted my free rental coupon on it and didn't use it on a more deserving game.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this game after initially hearing about it months ago. After spending some time with it I was severely disappointed. The AI is broken and buggy, the interaction is sluggish and frustrating and the graphics were mediocre at best. Not to mention that Eidos is trying to force independent reviewers to bend to their advertising dollars. Also posting fake scores and reviews on their own website.
Summary: The poor controls are just slightly better than the frustrating number of bugs, poor graphics, and sloppy storytelling. Worth a rental just to see how bad Xbox games can really get, but not worth any more than that.
