I just finished Kane and Lynch: Dog Days in about 10-12 hours (i played on extreme diff.) and was overall pleased with this 3rd person action romp. All the mechanics are there; but the new "gritty shaky COPS camera" camera angle is a great idea but can conflict with game play at times. ( plus it just plain bothered my eyes.) I didn't really get a feel of a NEW with this game in comparison to the original. It felt like same old game, new setting and film grain camera. But if you enjoyed the first game like i did, then pick it up.
Online multilayer is VERY satisfying! There's nothing better than a MP game mode where you get to screw over your fellow thieves, or even infiltrate them as an Undercover Cop. Grab the loot, get the escape van and pay the driver 50/50 of your grab to drive off and leave the other players in the dust. (my fave) In my opinion the MP is worth the rent alone.

I would like to point out this game has a M (Mature) rating - I want to see the gory dismembered head shots, the nudity, and not this visual blocked out censorship. Call me a spoiled American - I have no reason to tolerate this Danish (IO Interactive) or Japanese (Square Enix) blackout. I am disappointed in not only this but the chunky cover & aim system - seen much better in other games.
i was so excited for this game but i was extremely disapointed. the graphics you cant even see half the time. the weapons are horrible the best shotgun takes 3 shot at close range. the online is annoying in "fragile alliance" and "undercover cop" every one kills each other the game is a failure i suggest you DONT rent it.
