save your money & save your rental spot for a real game. This game is, at best, substandard with horribly written dialog even George Lucas would be embarrassed about. Game play is just sad and boring, story line is overly complex and leaves you with the with the question "who cares?".
EIDOS should be ashamed to try to sell us something as lame as this!
I don't think I've been as frustrated with a game before this bad. First off, the game is too dark to even see what's going on. Where are the brightness controls? Second, how are you supposed to shoot out a small window to a dump truck when you only get a few seconds to even aim at it. Supposedly Jenny gets killed on the "third" pass? Not if you're not in the hole with her on the "second" pass. They made this game to try to be challenging, but it's more frustrating than anything. Wish I could actually see the people I need to shoot at.
I liked the storyline. They made Kane and Lynch talk like they would in a movie. There dialouge through the game was really funny at times how they complained at each other. I didn't like the game play. The controls felt sloppy. You could have your sights on the guy your going to shoot and it would miss. It seems you get killed way to easy in this game as well. If you like a lot of swearing this is the game for you.
