NXT Gamer: First Impressions: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days Demo

It is quickly becoming a welcome trend in video games that sequels are far surpassing the scope and design of their predecessors. Assassin’s Creed 2 brought together the problems the first had in it’s mission structure and story. Mass Effect 2 made grand improvements on the series’ linearity and combat. Crackdown 2 looks to improve on nearly every single aspect of the first, despite being from a different developer. Whereas the film industry (and granted, the past ten years of the games industry) suffers from a great deal of cynicism towards sequels due to the greediness of key “Hollywood” figures looking to cash in on success, resulting in inferior or downright lazy additions to a series, we are now being gifted with a number of ever expanding and ever improving franchises.

I am glad to see that sequels for popular games are starting to be of better quality than their predecessors. I remember even 3 or 4 years ago when sequels were dreaded because they were never able to live up to the quality of the originals. Its a good thing that that trend has changed for the better and I can't wait to get my own hands on the demo when it is released to the general public.

Didn't bother with the first, but this looks sexy. Not actually sexy though, those old blokes have gained some weight and the vest is not working.

I did enjoy the first one (even with all of it's flaws) so I'll probably check this one out. I've heard good things so far about the demo.

The first one is a pile of poo compared to this game. Everything is just so much better and much more fun. I had more fun with this demo, then I did with the whole Kane & Lynch game when I rented it. Not sure if I'm going to pick it up at launch because of Mafia 2, but I'm going to consider it because its definitely a good game.

Definitely better than the first one though i wouldn't say it was a pile of poo.

I'm a big fan of the first game and found it a riot to play with a friend in co-op so it was obvious I'd like the second one, I just didn't realise how much. I'm really excited for the launch of this!
