Jimquisition: To Play The Villain

Some gamers are skipping Grand Theft Auto V, unwilling to play the role of a thief, a gangbanger, or a psychopath. While others may shy away from being the villain, Jim Sterling actively revels in it. Indeed, to play the villain can not only be fun, it can be downright fascinating.

Enslaved sells 460,000, Kane & Lynch 2 breaks a million

Am I the only one who finds this just a little freakin' insane? Enslaved: Odyssey to the West failed to even sell half a million copies, while the absolutely dreadful Kane & Lynch 2 -- with its half-finished campaign, cra...

IO: Some reviewers didn't 'get' Kane & Lynch 2

It would appear that "you didn't get it" has officially become the popular way of developers to escape acknowledging criticism of their games. While talking about Kane & Lynch 2, IO Interactive has joined the ra...

The Kane & Lynch movie needs a new director

To me, Kane & Lynch seems like an ideal candidate for the whole game-to-movie conversion process. You strip out the technical and mechanical issues, and hopefully, hopefully, you have an interesting story. Jamie Foxx and ...

Review: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days photo
Review: Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
by Jim Sterling

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men was one of the most notorious games of this generation. Famously bad, the game made headlines after a GameSpot reviewer gave it a low score and ended up fired because, allegedly, it had upset Eidos and the site's marketing department.

After a backlash from critics and a name forever tarnished with corrupt business practices and dreadful quality, it's surprising that Kane & Lynch ever managed to get a sequel, but here we are. Two of gaming's sleaziest, most grotesque, sociopathic old bastards are back, and this time IO Interactive has a chance to get its honor back. 

Was that chance taken, or is Kane & Lynch a series forever doomed to be consigned to bargain basements and trash cans? Read on for the full review of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days.
