At first, I was skeptical. A fan of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, I was worried that the sequel would not live up to the hype. However, after playing the game, it in fact does. Though, it is not as great as I hoped it would be.
Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is set in Shanghai, China, which, as we've seen several times before, can be a great setting for a video game, if done right. While I praise Dog Days for its depiction of and the grittiness of the city, I am most displeased with the new visual effects. The blurred, distorted appearance gives you a headache, and it is a real pain to control the character, especially when running.
Another negative is the combat. Yes, the weapons and fighting control are decent, but it is all very unrealistic. I shot a guy in the foot with a pistol from a very far distance and it killed him. One shot to the foot!
A positive is the story. While I do not want to spoil anything for anybody, I can say that there are some pretty cool twists and turns throughout the game. However, playing with a buddy makes it a LOT funner.
I did not get to taste multiplayer as much as I would have like to have, but I was satisfied with what I was able to see/play. It was interesting enough.
Overall, I'd recommend renting Dog Days for sure, and possibly even buying it.

WELL, first off, the game is way toooo short, beat story mode on hard in 2 sittings, about 3 hours, other than that game is alright, graphics are different, but pretty good, story was short but good, gameplay was above average, online was above average, overall i wouldnt buy the game.
