Though somewhat let down by its combat, Kane & Lynch is still well worth a play, even if it's just for the cinematic feel of the levels, the refreshingly different characters and the excellent multiplayer.
While it's never too challenging and is pretty short - racking up only about seven hours of play - if you want to feel like a bad guy but without the police chase, prison and bum rape that normally follows, then shooting up the place as Kane provides a good end to a bad day. Or maybe that's something I should discuss with my shrink...
Crime does pay!
- Some brilliant levels
- Interesting characters
- Non-stop action
- Rappelling down buildings!
- Combat is sometimes unsatisfying
- Automatic cover doesn't work very well
