too much bashing

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 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.

Meh! I thought it was just OK.

First things first, I beat the story single player in 2 short nights. I mean really, 2 nights?

The graphics while artistic can be very annoying. The screen jumps from static to clear, the lighting glares in your face every couple minutes. The cameraman is losing site of the enemies at times.

There really isn't anything else to do but walk in a linear line and shoot.

I understand what the concept was in trying to make it like a movie but there just wasn't enough for me in the year 2010.

Worth a rent but when you are sending it back in about 3 days don't be surprised.
