Kane and Lynch, has had a ton controversy around it due to the firing of the reviewer who ripped the game on Gamespot. I decided that I would judge it for myself.
At first glance it looked like the kind of game that I would like to play. Violence, guns, bad language and things generally in bad taste.
I knew in the first 15 minutes of playing this game hat it deserved whatever harsh criticism that lead to Gerstmanngate. I read the review that got the guy fired and I agree with most of it. It’s basically unplayable at some parts. Literally, at one point I got stuck in a wall and the game just glitched out on me. The gameplay is clunky, the movements and aiming are awkward. It reminded me of a bad version of a game I really do like, “The Getaway.”
When companies are making millions of dollars on games, this type of shotty mess is unacceptable. It seems fair to me that if you make a horrible game, it will get terrible reviews, and people won't buy the junk, they lose thousands of dollars. Economics 101
and any multiplayer, co-op game and you will get Kayne & Lynch. Yes you've been here before, you've dont this before in one game or another. But this is a pretty nice game that snuck under the radar between two console movers being released within a week of each other (assasins Creed and M.E).
This may not be on your list of "must play/own" games but if you have a rainy cold afternoon to spare you wouldnt be wasting it with a rental of K&L.

A lot of fun! Gamefly was made for games like thees! Ran threw it. With all the shooters out right now its Good in comparison. Call of duty modern warfare is Much better! Warhawk is just as good. I just like the scenario in this game! Can't beat bank robberies and jail breaks! so f all the haters on this game! Peace
