Gamedaily.Biz writes: "Kane & Lynch just can't seem to stay out of trouble. Certain ads for the game across the pond were recently banned for "condoning violence." We spoke with Eidos about the controversy.
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a tale of highly flawed men. Kane is a hard and bitter sociopath while Lynch is medicated and thoroughly homicidal. On top of it all, they're both a pair of ugly dudes, having given up handsomeness to age and a criminal lifestyle long ago.
It is perhaps appropriate on some level then that the release for Kane & Lynch has not been pretty. The most recent mar has come from the U.K., where magazine and TV ads have come under fire. The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has received 26 individual complaints, and that's resulted in certain advertisements being banned.
We take a closer look at the situation, with comments from Jon Brooke, U.K. Marketing Controller for Eidos."
