Kane & Lynch: Dead Men review

  • Main characters have cool history
  • Beautifully destructible environments
  • Some spectacular set-pieces
  • Main characters don't have personalities
  • Stupid teammates
  • Stupidly inaccurate weapons

This isn’t what we expected from this gritty crime sim. Kane & Lynch: Dead Men had the potential to be something special but the chance has been missed. And it doesn’t even come with an online co-op mode. Let’s just hope IO have one eye on making a quality Hitman sequel rather than pouring any more of their efforts into these lifeless souls.

    I thought it was pretty good. I enjoyed the action and the story was full of thought. I just wish it was a bit longer.

    this game was great! why a 6, GR? you gave the new prince of persia an 8 when it has some of the most unresponsive controls it ruined the game for me. K&L is very fun coop with a friend and i find the characters interesting and want to learn more about them. it's a great game that can be bought cheap. i recommend it to my friends

    bein devils advocate here... maybe expectin too much after the phenominal freedom frighters... but stormed thru it in 5 hours and found the 2 endings unfulfilling and anti climactic, i had to reset three times after being absorbed into a wall, and got killed well into double figures the amount of times i was killed whil TOTALLY in cover (when i could get into it) and as for the amountof times ive seen my comrades watching my lifeless body slowly die... 5/10 for me
