Kane & Lynch: Dead Men was only ever remembered for one thing, the firing of Gamespot’s Jeff Gerstmann. On the whole, we tend to dismiss bad games into oblivion.
I liked the game, it wasn't perfect but it was a great co-op rollercoaster ride of a game.
I liked Dog Days as well, it's just a shame the games always felt rather under cooked
Especially the sequel. I loved it!
I loved both and the coop in the second was really well done.
Remember the plannned Hollywood film series?
Aye, they even had scripts in development before the game bombed. The game was nominated for a BAFTA before it was even released...
wasnt bruce willis attached to it at one time?
Yep! I believe he was the desired choice to play Kane. The whole film project just fizzled out
This is what I wish IO was still working on.. never enjoyed Hitman.. too difficult for my tastes.. but I love Kane & Lynch.. especially Dog Days!!
Loved dog days. Brilliant story and solid shooting.
Both game are really good!
The co-op was awesome. The campaign itself was good to great until it got to the Cuba missions at the end. Those totally blew.
Yes, I wish there were more gritty, pitch-black games like this. Most games coming out this gen are based in the realm of fantasy. The right team behind a game like this could make something amazing. I love the concept/main characters, but its execution was a bit botched, I agree.
I loved both games. It had a different vibe and a different style antihero than we are used to. The dynamic between both men was fantastic. Lynch is a truly progressive character.
I was too broke to buy it growing up, unfortunately i missed this ship. :(
I was ok with both games. Bought both of them for like £5 each only 2 or so months after each release. Sure I would of felt ripped off if I paid £40 for them. But for a fiver they were both decent. The second game was decent and I was really into it. Until they got on a plane and that was the end of the game. I was very confused at the time thinking there must be more to it than that. But no the game just ended.
