The First 10 Minutes: Kane & Lynch

The First 10 Minutes: Kane & Lynch

Here are the ten first minutes of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, Eidos' happy psycho-killer simulator. So here is a first video played solo, but a co-op mission should arrive soon. Needless to say, the game is a lot more fun while played with a buddy. Still far from a great game, but the plot manages to get some attention.
Update: 2nd mission of the game added (co-op).

my friends in russia said that this game is better than assassin's creed and story is great
I think I will buy this game

Not too good if you'd ask my opinion. I should agree with gmulis.

The first video looked average at best. The critics were right about poor hit detection; it's very apparent when he shoots a cop for the first time. I think I'll pass ...

ever since i heard about the online mode about betraying ur team after u get the cash at the end i have had a craving for this game. i aint bought it only cos of what i have heard. seems average but not that bad

Plenty of better titles that came out past weeks which make that buying this game is no option.

i bought the game and even though its not something amazing its still great and i do not regret buying it. if the game had fixed its flaws i think it would be an easy buy and could be one of those must buy titles this year. there is only 3 things that are bad bout this game: extremely short single player, no online co-op, and only 4 multiplayer maps.

its not better then assassins creed like ace's friends said only because it didnt work more on these 3 things that i mentioned above. the hit detection and stupid AI is forgivable because you still have fun despite these flaws. the hit detection isn't such a big deal even though it does get annoying. the AI, even though its pretty dumb, is all good because it keeps the game fun and less frustrating.

i say its worth a buy but if u have enough games on your list this year and cant afford to pay for an extra game, just rent this game, but this is one of those games that needs to be played.

bah , didnt gamestop and Eidos fired Jeff for rating this game bad? both GS and Eidos had a cash deal

I'd only consider it for Fragile Alliance. And even then only if it was priced about £20ish.

I'm going to stay loyal to Gerstmann, in case there where something fishy going on with CNet and Eidos, and not buy this game.

The concept if the game is quite good, but it still manages to be an average game at best. Played it a bit. It's not that bad but not worth the bucks IMO.

they just needed 6 months more development time...

And ignore the hard work IO put into this game just because of what the publishers did. Makes sense.

look that the control and camera system is a "little bad", the AI is one of the worst i have see
Commented on 2007-12-09 14:20:24
I like the action, but graphics are sort of average (outdated) :(
Commented on 2007-12-09 15:12:29
I'd say the graphics are among the poorest i've seen for a 360 game.

Doesn't look good at all imo.
Commented on 2007-12-09 15:26:43
its stupid no online co-op...
Commented on 2007-12-09 16:07:47
I bought it on pc (for £17.99), its a windows live game so it has achievements its not actually that bad im playing with a 360 controller and having rumble is good

Definitely worth £17.99, its a good story so far

I definitely wouldnt pay £35 for it on 360 though
Commented on 2007-12-09 16:29:18
Presentation along with graphics looks bad. Shooting doesn't look conving either. Gonna rent it after christmas, maybe, just for the story.
Commented on 2007-12-09 17:39:04
Played the demo, hated it.
Commented on 2007-12-09 18:40:26
if i get it for windows live do i pay to play online

Can any game owner tell us how hard the game is, please?

This title seems somewhat interesting. I think I'll buy it used after I finished all the heavy hitters this season. A game to play through to see the story and environments. I'd play it with cheats if it had some.

its actually not that hard. i played on the hardest difficulty and its the easiest hard mode i have played. which is kinda another flaw i forgot to mention above. its pretty easy. but i only say this if you use cover. most of the time u can kill them easily on hard without using cover but if theres large groups of enemies you will die a lot if u dont hide.
