Kane and Lynch First Impressions

Kane and Lynch: Dead Men

Publisher: Eidos

Developer: Io Interactive

Release Date: November 13, 2007

Kane and Lynch was highly anticipated before it was released last November, since it was believed to be the spiritual successor to the Hitman series. Almost instantly it was met with horrible reviews. It currently has an average of 53 out of 100 on Metacritic, and 6.5 out of 10 on Gamestats. After spending a few hours with Kane and Lynch this afternoon, I can’t help but wonder why the scores are so low. The game is building this fantastic story that looks like it will have a great conclusion, and the shooting and squad mechanics are working almost as well as the story. If the scores are true, then the rest of the game must really be worthless. Check in a few days for my review.
