Kane & Lynch 2 is not an easy game to play. The story is one of the most brutal seen in a videogame, the characters are, at first, virtually unrelatable, the shooting feels clunky and the shaki-cam approach may well make you motion sick. Reviewers picked up on each of these things, and the game had an incredibly mixed reception. I avoided the game, thinking it was just another M rated game trying too hard to be “grown up” or “realistic” (how can a game be realistic when your final kill count is well into the hundreds?) So why do I now think more games should be like Kane & Lynch 2?
