After scoring 9.0 from OXM UK new reviews of K&L2 has popped out. OXM AU=8.0 Gamesmaster=8.5 You can read the all 3 review details over the link
Wow that high? I knew right away from the demo that K&L2 was a BIG improvement over the first one, but I didn't expect 8-9 range, especially a 9. I was thinking more around 7-7.5, I guess we will find out when more reviews hit.
If anyone truly believes this game to be a 9 or an 8.5 type experience then you're either a sucker or just a damned fool. An 8 is being kind to this game. It's a decent game not an 8 or 8.5 type game and no where near a 9 type experience.
so it's almost as good as gta iv then....
I tried the demo and thought it sucked.
Gertzman was right about this IP, 6.5
It's utter shit, and yes I've played the full game.
looks like a helluva lot of people have played the FULL game and disagree. I haven't, but I thought the demo sucked. I wouldn't let a dead hooker be seen with this game.
I really enjoyed the demo. I love the gritty camera look, gives it a strong sense of realism. I'm definitely picking this one up, especially for the MP, it's highly inventive and really fun.
Played the demo and didn't really care for it. Pass for me! I'll wait for Hitman 5 to come out, because the series is just awesome.
I enjoyed the Mafia 2 demo more but Kane & Lynch 2 was nice as well and it has both co-op and multiplayer. I don't know which one to pick. Halo Reach isn't far away so I don't feel like getting both.
I don`t know why anyone disagrees w/ your comment.
K&L 2 seems like a better buy while Mafia 2 could be a solid rental for now. Pick it up later when the price is right.
Well done to the developers for taking the criticism from the first game and improving it significantly.
Sales will be hurt by Mafia 2
after playing the demo, 8 is top end MP sucked, plain and simple SP meh...mildly entertaining
no one is getting sacked from GameSpot this time then.
The only score that matters for this game is Jeff Gerstmann's from Giant Bomb. :D
the controls are better than the first but it doesn't make it better,the game is only 4-5 hours long,no variety,all you do is shoot wave after wave after wave of enemies,these 2 characters they created had great potential for a story and a big variety in gameplay,at least the first game had a great moment,the bank heist,if i were to give this game a score it will be 6/10
Its not bad, nothing great. I noticed the lack of physics like trying to shoot certain things and nothing happening. If an open world game like red dead can pull off good realism. Then a more linear game should be able to to do it. No excuse. I will get this when its bargain bucket, I wanted to get mafia 2 day one but seeing how halo reach is around the corner ill have to wait. Hopefully there is matchmaking in the co-op campaign this time. (its a deal breaker for me if it aint there)
