GameXplain Writes: "Does anyone remember the original Kane & Lynch for anything other than the debacle that occurred at GameSpot because of it? Did it really sell enough copies to warrant a sequel? Was the original game really that bad? These were the questions that ran through my mind when I was assigned Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days for review. I had never played the original game, mostly because I was simultaneously scared off by the bad press and lured by other better games, but preview material made me hopeful that this sequel would at least be average. Apparently that was setting the bar too high. Now I haven't played every game that's been released this year but this is by far one of the worst games I've played in a long, long time. There are hints of a better game in here somewhere, but that's little consolation after trudging through this gutter heap."
