Must Go With 5!

Wow, I was playing this game and getting Lynch onto the plane... here I was figuring that Kyle and Lynch would be jumping back to America and the game would continue. Think how surprised I was when all of a sudden the CREDITS started rolling!

IT WAS OVER!

The shortest game I've ever played. I just hope no one payed anywhere near over $13.00 dollars for this game. A total RIPOFF. We should have been warned that these gamemakers were only going to give us 15 minutes of gametime!

Disgusted by this new wrinkle of cheapness in the gaming world. No wonder profits are down!

Anyway, I was not too upset with this 2nd Kyle and Lynch game, until the early end that is, except that I didn't understand the camcorder view, blurry, muddy and ugly. Why not clean it up. The gun play was fair, not Call of Duty or anything, of course. Still the story of these two is okay, but nothing to write home about. In fact I never liked the first Kyle and Lynch game because the controls were really terrible... I sent it back.

I cannot forgive these for not putting in the time or care of completing a game though. It needed about 30 hours more to go. I feel bad for kids who bought this.

Just really upsetting.

Definitely worth the rental...considering buying it.

This is the sickest most original game engine in a while. It plays a lot like Army of Two, but with a lot of adrenaline. Yes it has a grainy look like manhunt and it blurs out privates and blown off faces. IT WAS INTENTIONAL. Its artistic and different. If you want to play every other game...go rent those games. The best word for this game is ... original.

Low points: no grenades (tho the game is littered with throwable explosives you can throw and shoot in the air) and no melee (yea...thats dumb).

High points: non stop action, gruesome, unpredictable multiplayer, co-op on same box or online...oh...and completely original.

I play nearly everything and lost planet 2 was unbearable and this game is sick. Definitely worth a look. And if you beat it in 2 hours...you played it on easy. Challenge yourself...there are 4 difficulties.

"Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days" could've been a great game, but it falls short in more than its length of gameplay. The game clocks in anywhere from 3-6 hours, depending on your ability and how often you die. And dying can happen often, as the graphics, while okay, are not really up to snuff compared to other shooters on the PS3. The gunplay is fast and furious, but also frustrating as well, as your bullets are inconsistent with the damage you do to the enemy, yet they can hit you from across a room, street, or courtyard with deadly accuracy, causing your screen to go red in a hurry. And that's on the easy setting. The cover system also doesn't always work, as sometimes your character would simply stand there getting shot instead of getting into cover, even though you'd be jamming on the cover button. The camera is also a problem. Making it seem more life-like by giving you a handheld camera view might work at times for a movie, but not so well in a game. I recommend enabling the Steadicam in the options menu- it makes life a bit easier. The story is okay but not great, we've seen this before. The "M" rating is definitely warranted with the language, but the pixellation on the corpses is a bit puzzling decision. All in all, this is a rental only, and a brief one at that.
