Kane and Lynch: Dog Days, sequel to the oddly high-profile, “Kane and Lynch: Dead Men”, is set to hit stores on August 24’th. In the sequel, the dynamic duo unravels a mystery while fighting off Chinese mafia in Shanghai. The game’s camera uses a shaky “Hand-Cam” style to emphasize the game’s grittiness.
As a game, the original Kane and Lynch was buggy and had a stilted storyline, but gained notoriety in the gaming community after an editor from Gamespot was fired for panning the game, despite developer Eidos’ sincere requests (and alleged threats to pull major advertising dollars). The sequel looks graphically sound, so we’ll just have to see if the sequel stirs up as much trouble as the original.
