Games and movies are getting close by the day. Though there are stark differences, there is common ground to explore. In fact, every developer working on a new IP for this generation of hi-def consoles swears blindly that their's is the one that will genuinely guarantee an experience mirroring a million dollar popcorn blockbuster. Where other developers hire big name movie talent to inch closer to the feel of a film, IO Interactive doesn't need any of this.
Hitman was always genuinely cinematic in scope and execution and Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, IO's latest foray into the sinister underbelly of the criminal world, goes even further. Kane & Lynch wears its influences right there on its bloodied sleeve for everyone to see. There's absolutely no qualms about it, K&L relies not on name actors, Tinsel town scribes or blockbuster scorers, instead on sheer brute force, bad attitude, high-class medication and an adoration for the men-in-suits gangster flicks made famous by the Hollywood hip generation and veteran helmers.
