Official Kane & Lynch Web site flat out lies about its perfect review scores

This Kane & Lynch circus continues to entertain. Over on GameBump, they discovered that the official Kane & Lynch Web site states that Game Informer and Game Spy have both given the game a perfect score. The problem? Game Informer and Game Spy never gave this a perfect score at all. Game Spy gave the game a three out of five star rating and Game Informer gave the game a seven out of ten rating.

Not only that, but the quotes the Kane & Lynch Web site is using from both sites are actually from early previews of the game the sites did and weren't taken from the actual reviews.

Kotaku even gave this game a five star! Which is really weird because for as long as I've been reading Kotaku, they have rarely ever given a numerical score to a game, let alone some stars. 

Game Spy has contacted Eidos telling them to change the score. No word on if Game Informer or any of the other sites listed on the K&L site is requesting the changes. 

Check out the gallery below for some screen caps from the site or just go visit the site to see for yourself what they're trying to pull off. One thing is for sure; this game is getting more press than it ever would have otherwise.  

[Editor's note: There is a very slim chance that the stars could potentially just be for graphical purposes and not the actual ratings. In the off chance that this is the case, then it is extremely irresponsible and grossly misleading for any company to use a common rating system as a graphic and then have a statement praising the game that could easily be misinterpreted for an actual review score. -- CTZ]

[Thanks, Riven!]
