Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days Review
Quote:
The deranged duo's return is worth experiencing and is far more accomplished than its predecessor, but the gameplay on offer still doesn't match the quality of the characters IO has created.

Good Review Tom as always may I add Smile

Bit gutted really but I now get what you getting at from your comment on the "videogamer plays"

Quote:
rather than the awkward auto cover system the original game employed, and the controls feel tighter too. Environments this time around have been designed to allow for better use of these basic mechanics; you're never far from a handy waist-high crate or wall to take shelter behind, but be careful, as some cover will be ripped apart by enemy gun-fire.

Yeah I agree very annoying especially when you are trying to get into the first one right at the start and trying to get out of the diner, when you keep getting stuck all the time.
From playing the demo and having completed the first one I do still feel the first one seems to be better.
Simply because I felt from playing the demo it was a bit bland and the new areas offered very little that I felt was different from the last area I was just in.
But the first one kept changing levels nicely like you start off trying to escape the cops from, then to a bank heist followed by a chase, then a Tokyo nightclub. This new one just feel a one way street with the only things that change are the florescent lights rather than a totally different environment.
To me they have fixed one area (the controls) but totally forgot about another main point of a game (the levels)
But my God the multiplayer sounds awesome for the second one!!!!

I was hoping this would do well. Judging from the demo they have fallen well short of the mark, again. A damn shame really.

4/10 VERY dull one you get over the "FLYCAM" style of the engine, everything is very low res and gritty but the game just don't do the PC justice, shouldn't bother porting console trash if they can't make it superior in every way.

How they hell this site rated graphics 9/10? have they never seen a game fromt he last 5 years outside of a console?
