In die Rolle eines Massenmörders zu schlüpfen, ist sicher nicht alltäglich in einem Computerspiel. Doch schnell wird klar, warum Kane tut, was er tut. Hinter der harten Fassade steckt ein Mensch und Vater, der eigentlich nur das Schlimmste verhindern will. Faszinierend wie die beiden Hauptcharaktere ist auch die knallharte Story. Was die Entwickler sich hier ausgedacht haben, könnte direkt aus Filmen wie Crank oder Snatch stammen. Einzig Schnitzer bei der KI und einige frustig-schwere Momente bremsen Kane & Lynch: Dead Men aus. Ein wenig Feinschliff hätte gutgetan. Zu oft rennen mir die Kollegen vor die Flinte und ich muss neu starten, obwohl die Schuld bei den doofen Mitstreitern liegt.

Kane & Lynch kommt mit einer selten guten Geschichte und unverbrauchten Charakteren daher. Steuerungstechnisch, sowie in Hinblick auf den Umfang gibt es zwar einige Schwächen, die das Drumherum aber wieder ausbaden kann. Wer also einen durchschnittlichen Shooter mit einer genialen Verpackung sucht, der sollte unbedingt zugreifen.

Kane & Lynch is adrenaline van begin tot eind met keiharde actie en meedogenloze combat. Niet voor gevoelige gamers.

A solid, adrenaline fueled, fast action game with a great story and some solid acting. Disappointingly short campaign but a multiplayer that makes up for it. Its uniqueness is something that will appeal to a large amount of gamers.

The right combination of gameplay elements and design decisions make Kane and Lynch easy to recommend to crime junkies and anyone who enjoys a little therapeutic videogame violence. A well-executed plot really makes the game, while the multiplayer additions add replay value and variety. The game manages to find the right flow and lets you indulge your dark side while getting your action fix. Kane and Lynch go through hell, but you end up getting a pretty sweet deal.

Mit diesen beiden Typen ist nicht zu scherzen. Kane und Lynch sorgen immerhin mit rabenschwarzem Humor für etwas Auflockerung zwischen den knallharten, brutalen Kampfszenen. Dieses Spiel gehört nicht in Kinderhände, sondern ist derbe Unterhaltung für Erwachsene. Die Aufmachung erinnert an berühmte Gangsterfilme aus Hollywood, die Geschichte ist packend inszeniert. Grafisch hat das Spiel kleine Schwächen, die aber kaum stören. Die Sprecher der Hauptfiguren sind absolute Spitzenklasse und sorgen mit sarkastischen Sprüchen für Atmospähre. Nichts für zar besaitete Gemüter, aber ein extrem spannendes Gangsterabenteuer - "gut" so.

A Kane & Lynch: Dead Men le ha perjudicado muchísimo que sus creadores no incluyeran finalmente el modo campaña cooperativo a través de Xbox Live. Hubiera sido el puntito que el juego necesita para alcanzar el nivel jugable apropiado para los tiempos que corren. En su lugar no hubiera estado de más que se solucionaran algunos fallos, o que contara con gráficos más acordes a la nueva generación, pero en términos generales cumple con su propósito. Dado que la licencia ya ha sido adquirida para su llegada a los cines, no sería nada extraño que en un futuro viéramos nuevas aventuras de estos dos singulares personajes. Especialmente si los rumores del reparto cinematográfico se cumplen: Bruce Willis y Billy Bob Thornton.

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men could be a great game. Unfortunately it feels unfinished, and falls short of that mark. It's still a pioneering effort in action game storytelling: Kane's story is disturbing, fascinating and heartbreaking, and will stay with you long after the credits roll.

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.

Der ganz große Knaller ist Kane & Lynch Dead Men zwar nicht geworden, doch Spaß hatte ich mit der Actionhatz quer über die Welt schon. Die Schießereien spielen sich flott, die Action wird cool inszeniert und die Schauplätze sind erfreulich abwechslungsreich. Dafür enttäuscht der Titel bei der nicht mehr standesgemäßen Grafik und der zuweilen ungenau arbeitenden Steuerung. Auch die Story lässt mir zu viele Fragen unbeantwortet und die Helden wachsen mir nie richtig ans Herz. Dennoch: das einmalige Durchspielen sorgt für viel Laune, am besten schnappt ihr euch aber einen Freund und zockt die Story im spannenden Koop-Modus gemeinsam in einem Rutsch durch, dann stört auch nicht das antiquierte Speichersystem.

Christian Schmidt: »Seltsam: Kane & Lynch ist vollgestopft mit dramatischen Momenten, trotzdem geht das Spiel an mir vorbei, ohne mich zu berühren. Es liegt wohl an der Diskrepanz zwischen Inszenierung und Mechanik: Während um mich herum die Handlung wirbelt, schieße ich acht Stunden lang auf immer gleich reagierende Feinde. Weder die Geschichte (wirr und oberflächlich) noch die Charaktere (wüst und oberflächlich) helfen, die Actionsplitter sinnvoll zusammenzufügen. Schicke Action-Unterhaltung ist das Spiel aber allemal. Ein Spiel wie ein Hollywood-Blockbuster: toll gemacht, schnell wieder vergessen.«

Kane & Lynch ist einer dieser vielversprechenden Titel, die zwar mit einer bombastischen Inszenierung, gut erzählter Story und gelungenen Hauptcharakteren aufwarten können, jedoch bei näherer Betrachtung gravierende spielerische und technische Mängel aufweisen. Sicherlich wurden uns die zu Beginn gestellten Fragen beantwortet, dennoch stehen wir mit offenem Mund und zahlreichen weiteren offen Fragen am Ende wieder auf weiter Flur. Wie konnte es eine solch abgrundtief schlechte KI in das Spiel schaffen? Wieso lassen die Entwickler die Spannungskurve in der zweiten Hälfte des Spiels dermaßen verflachen? Wieso habe ich den Titel in wenigen Stunden komplett durchgespielt? Warum gibt es keinen Online-Coop-Modus?

Kane and Lynch could have been a fantastic game had they have spent some more time on it. Instead we are left with a fun but short and buggy game. Hopefully they can build upon this decent foundation and make a good sequel.

The presentation, voice acting, characters, and story are absolutely excellent. Kane & Lynch themselves are far from your prototypical action game hero. They’re terrible people who just broke out of jail, and you can expect to kill a lot of cops and innocent people as them. The dialogue between the two is realistic and gritty, and the plot itself is well-written and consistently entertaining. It’s too bad that when the game shifts from cutscenes to gameplay, it suffers tremendously. Certain areas of the game function as they should and are genuinely entertaining (most of the beginning of the game), but others are infuriatingly broken. A boss fight involving a semi truck is near-impossible even on the easiest difficulty setting, and ordering your cohorts around is a chore. Despite the gameplay issues, I’d love to see a sequel that takes the excellent story and characters and just adds a functional game engine.

The Fragile Alliance multiplayer mode is also a tense thrill. Unfortunately, it's also missing something: maps. There are only four and they are all pulled straight out of the campaign. Unless I'm the one missing something, Kane & Lynch fails to live up to its potential.

The cinematics and storyline make this feel like a Hollywood production. The plot is there, the crazy characters and personalities are there and so is the violence. What's missing? Refined controls and a little more flair to the graphics. It is fun to play alone, but more so with a friend in co-op. This game feels a lot like Freedom Fighters. The only problem with that is the mistakes with that game have not been corrected four years later. When it comes to third person shooters, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is not going to be remembered as a classic.

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men features a wonderfully dark storyline surrounded by a slew of action that never lets up from the first bang. We'd love to finish on that note, because it means we'd have a must-have title for everybody, but the mediocre control, erratic cover system, and strange stealth sequences (we don't have a stealth mechanic, Io!) pull the game down. In short- the story is the crux but the gameplay is the crutch. This isn't what we wanted, and while we still say it's worth a rent - Kane and Lynch really are that insane, and the action really is quite entertaining for a while - it's not worth $60. Maybe it goes on the Christmas list so you don't have to spend your hard-earned cash...? With so many other great titles this holiday season, we just can't recommend this one unless you can overlook the primary failings and focus on the story and characters. It's too bad, but that's the way it is.

WindowsActionTrip
Then again, there are a few reasons why I didn't give a lower score to this game. The overall presentation, solid visuals, excellently directed cut-scenes and, above all, a well-structured plot, are all elements we rarely see in games today. You'll also be passing through different environments, so at least the game doesn't get dull in that sense. Another thing is that the PC version ran smoothly, even on modest rigs. In addition, the game didn't exhibit any bugs that might ward players off. Even with all that, Kane & Lynch didn't deliver much of what was promised initially. It's sad, but true. Again, familiar elements from Hitman are felt throughout the game. While some gamers may find this a welcomed facet, it's really disappointing that after all these years Io didn't show enough determination and creativity to bring something new to the scene of contemporary shooters.

En attendant peut-être une suite qui perfectionnera le concept et proposera un gameplay vraiment à la hauteur du script. J’hésitais entre 6/10 et 7/10, j’opte pour la note plus élevée en sachant que j’affectionne particulièrement le genre et la mise en scène. Les réfractaires à ce type de jeu, un peu trop sensibles ou qui cherchent un titre vraiment up-to-date au niveau technique feraient mieux de passer leur chemin. Kane & Lynch, c’est un jeu pour les durs, les vrais !

The single-player/co-op mode is underwhelming at best. With poor AI and thematic blurring, even the easiest difficulty – Aspirin – will leave you with a throbbing headache. Despite Kane & Lynch: Dead Men’s relatively short length (think one sitting, if not two), the multi-player should satiate gamers suffering from Splinter Cell or Hitman withdrawals.

There's certainly a lot here to love and a lot more than you want to love, but most of your time in Kane & Lynch is spent shaking or scratching your head. The problems are just too visible for it to be taken seriously as a gritty thriller.

Kane & Lynch is a game that many people will play through and enjoy simply because of the forceful story and characters. Others will find the gameplay isn’t up to speed with the rest of the gaming world and wonder why anyone would bother. Frustration should never enter into a game because of the mechanics, but with Kane & Lynch it does. Loose gameplay, a brief campaign, and a single (albeit good) online mode with four maps hurt this title that could have been so much more.

At the end of the day K&L is a unique and enthralling single-player experience, albeit a fairly brief one, with a few niggles here and there. If the theme appeals and you're aware of the multiplayer's shortcomings and the general brevity of the game, K&L is a more than worthwhile purchase for fans of quality action and regret plots.

WindowsGamingExcellence
There’s a lot to like about Kane & Lynch, but there’s a lot to really hate as well. It’s perfect for someone who enjoys a solid story and depth in their characters and doesn’t mind glaring problems in their gameplay. For others who crave a strong third-person shooting experience, emphasis on controls and action, they’re going to be sorely disappointed with it. If the major flaws didn’t permeate every aspect of the gameplay, whether multiplayer or singleplayer, then the title might be worth mentioning for more than the plot. As it is, however, the game just can’t be recommended to most. Like the protagonist Kane, it’s decent but has too many flaws for comfort.

Factor in an exceptionally short single-player campaign, an undercooked tactical squad element and a distinct lack of gameplay variety and it's impossible not to see this as a very big missed opportunity. The innovative multiplayer aspect is certainly a nice bonus, but a game such as this can't get by on minor novelties in a market chock full of shooters with fully fledged online elements. There are many many positives to come out of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, but sadly too many things weigh against it to mark it out as a must-have in a ludicrously competitive environment. Let's hope IO takes heart and comes back with a game which delivers on all counts, and not just some.

Kane and Lynch reeks of an undercooked effort that should've baked a few more months in the development oven. If the care and polish that went into the wonderfully cinematic level presentation had also been applied to the writing and gameplay, it could've been a bar-raising effort for the third-person shooter genre. As is, Kane and Lynch offers a fun play-through for fans of the movies it's paying homage to; again, the scenario-driven stages are amazing. And despite the absence of online co-op, playing split-screen with a friend is fun. An up-to-eight player online multiplayer mode, that has you and your friends turning traitor on each other during a botched heist, is interesting, but won't provide more than a temporary distraction from meatier online offerings like Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3.

Xbox 360Good Game
I can appreciate the effort that went into creating these characters, which were pretty cool. If you do pick this up, make sure you persevere to the end, where you have to make a very hard, grim decision. Overall though the cover system really needed to be done better for this to succeed, it’s 6.5 from me.

Xbox 360Defunct Games
Kane & Lynch is a good idea that is plagued by poor controls, unbalanced weapons, a boring story and some questionable writing. That's not to say that you won't have a good time playing through this brief action game, but you will have to put up with a lot of poor development problems before really enjoying yourself.

Kane & Lynch появилась некстати. В нынешнем состоянии ей следовало выйти лет пять назад, когда незатейливые перестрелки и "рельсовые" поездки на машинах еще не навязли в зубах. Либо плюнуть на подражание "фабрике грез" и дозреть до открытого, бодрого геймплея годик-другой. Впрочем, чует мое сердце, к 2009-му IO Interactive сотворит K&L 2...

Xbox 360GameSpy
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is yet another prime example of a great concept that's been pushed out the door before it was ready; this game obviously needed more time for fine tuning. The storyline is compelling, and the voice acting, in spite of the nonstop profanity, is quite good. You might even forgive the bigger issues that the game has for at least the first half of the journey. A great story and wonderful presentation, however, can't save the sloppy mechanics that hang from its neck like an albatross, ultimately dragging it down. For everything cool that the game does, it shoots itself in the foot with a terrible cover system, artificial incompetence, and a multiplayer mode that sums up everything that's half-baked about the experience. If you want to experience some great set pieces, there are parts of the game that are worth checking out, but the bad seriously outweighs the good.

Comme à son habitude, IO Interactive dégaine la carte ambiance avec brio et enchaîne les scènes d'anthologie empruntées au cinéma hollywoodien. Kane & Lynch: Dead Men en ressort comme un shoot sympathique et interdit au moins de 18 ans, malheureusement bourré de défauts qui empêchent le jeu de véritablement décoller, mais toujours avec cette envie de briser les règles du jeu de gangsters. Quelques mois de plus, et nous tenions là certainement un classique du genre. Vous avez dit regret ?

Xbox 360GameSpot
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a premise with promise, and if you've been waiting patiently for a game to really dive into the whole "crew-based heist tale" concept, you might be able to look past some of the story flaws. But when you consider the nearly ridiculous number of extremely high-quality shooters available recently, there's not much room for something like Kane & Lynch, even taking into account the somewhat unique nature of its story. That said, the multiplayer is a smart idea that's worth seeing, even if playing it makes you wish that it was used in another, better game.

Xbox 360Good Game
Well I can't actually recommend this I'm afraid, seeing as there are so many better options for shooter fans at the moment. The co-op is good to have, but it doesn't address the game's main problems. I think this is pretty much the definition of a 6, you can get some entertainment out of it but you can find much better without having to look hard at all.

Overall Kane & Lynch is an interesting -- if overly violent -- take on the “buddy” game. The tag-team setup adds something to what would already be a solid action game and makes it that much better.

Xbox 360Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Despite its flaws, playing through Kane & Lynch was fun most of the time. The characters in the game are great, the voice acting is solid and the story is, for the most part, pretty good. The dialogue is just plain awful in places, though, and both endings leave you feeling unsatisfied. The AI, on both sides, makes some levels a pain in the ass and turns something that should be fun into a chore. If you’re going to play Kane & Lynch, play it with a second player. I had a lot more fun beating the game with my brother than I did by myself.

WindowsGamer 2.0
So if you have some extra time on your hands, Kane & Lynch is just barely worth a rental. Were it not for its story, we would undoubtedly give it a “Skip It” recommendation. However, it should be able to tide you over for a small while. Don’t expect anything great out of it though.

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a sizeable step backwards for IO Interactive, which has failed in its ambition to deliver a mature action adventure that pulls no punches and gives the videogame world a pair of great anti-hero characterisations. As it is - in this unfinished state - Kane & Lynch's all-too obvious lack of Q&A follow through makes it impossible to recommend for anyone other than hardcore shooter fans willing to trawl through hours of mediocrity in return for minutes of unfulfilled promise.

PlayStation 3Game Revolution
There’s a lot in this game to like. It’s got real personality, and the well-wrought action sequences are among the best ever to appear in a game. Kane & Lynch could have been a stand-out title last generation, and there’s no technical reason why it couldn’t have been made for a last-gen system. But when faced with the fierce and forward-looking games of the past year or two, this game can’t get its head above water. Like the two aging men at its center, Kane & Lynch is a game full of regrets and missed opportunities. But also like those two men, it’s still got plenty of bullets left in the clip. Maybe that new girlfriend wasn't such a bad idea after all...

Kane & Lynch is one of those games that really wants to be a big-selling franchise starter, but falls way short of being a compelling action title, and an especially glaring one considering the stiff competition this year. The game could’ve benefited from several more months in development, but isn’t recommended as it stands.

PlayStation 3The Review Busters
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is only enjoyable for the story. The game feels like an out dated release that came out many moons ago. Levels seem unrealistic and the AI is just special. Playing with another friend won’t really help the games experience too much, if you really want to enjoy Kane & Lynch then play it online.

Xbox 360Video Game Talk
There’s been recent controversy over this game concerning a fired editor over at a particular gaming site. I fully agree with what he said. This game is severely flawed and his rating was more than appropriate for this particular game. Sloppy and muddy controls, a broken aiming mechanism combined with a couple of characters who you’ll never really care for at any point make for a dull and tedious gaming experience. Compound that with the shoddy squad mechanics, lack of online co-op, and a seemingly broken online experience doesn’t make the game sound appealing in the slightest. The online arena does show some potential if you can connect and stay in a game, but that alone does not warrant enough of a draw and it’s just not worth the effort of obtaining a copy. You can safely skip this game and not feel like you’ve missed out on anything too important.

Windows1UP
Kane & Lynch serves as an important lesson in game design: The medium is not the message. Don't get me wrong -- it's still entertaining, especially if you're looking to play on a more casual basis. But with rumors of a film adaptation already in the works, I can't help but wonder if the designers were more focused on another Hollywood vehicle instead of a solid game.

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men makes an admirable attempt at telling a violent story about paid killers and the lengths they'll go to for revenge. But the edges are frayed by comparison with movies and TV shows that do the same thing. The duo looks tough, but they behave like a bickering couple on a honeymoon cruise. It's hard to care for these thugs, and the game's makers know this, so they drag Kane's innocent family into the sordid affair. Just another cheap shot.
