GC07: Even more Kane & Lynch

GC07: Even more Kane & Lynch

We are seeing of the end of the remaining footage from the Game Convention, but as you can see we still have some interesting stuff. This time you get to see a level from Kane & Lynch: Dead Men right after the one from last week, this time using our new encoding system for some very good quality image quality (for an off-screen video of course).

Don't really see why people are interested in this game to be honest.

I guess it is the makers of Hitman and Freedom Fighters 2, they like those games and they are "interested" in this one.
That is all I can think of.
I do think it is looking cool, but I am saving money for the games I been waiting for, this one aint it.

Yeah I loved story of this game but when I see gameplay it doesn't really make any impression...

its a shooter thats being made by the same people who made one of the funniest franchises ever. i think it looks pretty badass. i like the story a lot, kind of reminds me of heat. and the gunplay seems pretty awesome. an especially cool part that i liked was how the enemys scope sight showing up at the bottom of the screen with your head being visible to him. looks like a lot of fun. great vid.

still thought it was hilarious though wen the cop in the beginning said they were having "minor issues" while everyone in the background is freaking out and running out the front door.

It looks (graphically) very nice. But it shoots like Hitman, which IMO was one of the weaker points of the franchise.

OMG! there's a Freedom Fighters 2?

no.

but this does look very promising. it'll be interesting to find out what exactly a drug crazed maniac can do with a shotgun :)

If fewer bullets were flying, and it was more realistic this game would really impress me, but since the guy in the video sustains round after round, and still manages to walk around, like they were mosquito bites instead of bullets, it looses a lot of credibilty with me, the look is pretty realistic, why not have it be more sim. Maybe there are settings for that. Maybe it was on the noob setting. Besides the cloned looking people rushing out of the building and their poor motion capture/animation, I thought graphically it looked very good. Nice lighting.

noob setting? i didnt know there was a noob setting. are you just making this up?

Looks good to me.

Well if the cops don't care about how many people THEY gun down then I guess WE shouldn't care either! LOL!

The dynamic of the story makes the game interesting on it's own. Two flawed anti-heroes who hate each other are forced to work together to achieve some twisted goal.

On top of that, the game has the look and feel of the Pacino/Deniro film Heat.

But really the first time I saw the crowd control system in action last year I was hooked.

You can even see the style as having big black back crossed their body and grey suits and all.

I thought this looked promising, but it is most definitely lacking in the AI department.

Graphics look REALLY poor and gameplay seems really bland and generic... not any interesting to see in this game tbh.....

guess you wont be buying CoD4, and i guess you didnt like CoD2/3 or halo etc etc. these have rechargable heath just like this game...

i love the game tho. the story and the co-op are what sell it to me tbh. and the fact it looks to play identically to freedom fighters, one of the better game from last gen. very nice style to it. mildly destructable enviornonments. pretty BIG environments. all in split screen co-op...not bad...not bad at all. i personally think this will be better then the other co-op focused game army of two. army of two seems to lack something...and i dont know what it is.

If you had any idea as to how much work goes into game development now you wouldn't be saying that. Some of you are so blind to anything other than triple A games that anything that isn't MGS or Halo times 10 you think is utter crap. You need to get your heads out of the same and stop being emo, you make real gamers really pissed.

stop being emo??? LMAO, what does that even mean in this context. that makes no sense what so ever.

I'm sorry but after more then 15 years of playing games i think I'm actually entitled to have a strong opinion about games and the way they get presented in screenshots and video's....
If in my opinion a game looks generic and offering absolutely nothing, I'll definitely comment on it...

No i'm not saying they didn't do their best... I mean i loved freedom fighters but it seems this game doesn't reach that level of polish... But compared to the outstanding title's that are coming out this year i think this game stands little chance....
Commented on 2007-08-29 14:34:07
DJJoeJoe, I doubt anyone is saying that the developers didn't put effort into this game (atleast I hope they aren't). They are just comparing this game to other titles that are coming out during the same time. I think it's perfectly valid to compare this to other AAA titles considering that it's coming out during what I consider the greatest holiday season for gamers ever.

To me though, it looks like atleast a rental and a decent co-op experience. I would like to see how co-op plays compared to Army of Two.
Commented on 2007-08-29 14:53:53
I was really impressed with the atmosphere in the very first trailer. Now I lost interest in that game, doesn't look very original as it was in the first one...
Commented on 2007-08-29 15:46:56
the environment looks far inferior compared to the environments in the last Hitman game.

for me the remaining question is - does the coop-campaign deliver anything new at all?

best regards,

What so it's okay for you to have an opinion but no one elses opinion can disagree with you, or else you will rip them apart and try to "put them in their place" ?

Get over yourself. Everyone has an opinion, and they are all just as valid as the last. If a game doesn't look good or appeal to someone, it doesn't appeal to them! Simple as that.

And I know what goes into game development, as I'm a software engineer, and just because years can go into a game doesn't mean it is a good game. There are plenty of crappy games out there. Infact I would go to say that probably 75% of all games out there are crap.

He I didn't rip anyone or anyone's opinion apart... I just didn't like his:
"You need to get your heads out of the same and stop being emo, you make real gamers really pissed." comment. Because I'm more critical about a game, i'm not a "real gamer"???
I mean come on, I'm entitled to an opinion just as everyone else is on this forum...

Looks like your average third person shooter to me, albeit with the now almost-mandatory RE4-style shoulder cam. Pass!

I happen to like the way this game is shaping up. It's a gritty looking title, it's a new IP and I like the graphics style. But that's me.

File away the notion that you're going to be able to persuade people who may have already made up their minds that the game isn't worthy to play.

You're right about certain gamer attitudes though. There are many gamers out there who won't touch a title unless it has cutting edge graphics or gameplay mechanics that resemble the more popular shooters. If I thought like that I wouldn't have a game library.

The simple fact of the matter is that several gaming gems slip through the cracks every year for lack of promotion, buzz talk, or dubious ratings. Kane and Lynch could very easily become one of those titles if it's not received well enough by gamers. It's a shame, but it happens........ALOT.
