Two men, enemy by circumstances, bound together by fate, Kane and Lynch the two anti-heroes are indeed Dead Men. One is fighting against time to save his family from the wrath of the league of seven (basically a group of mob bosses), while the other is there to ensure that the former sticks to the plan while fighting frequent psychopathic urges. With the body count on the rise, one must find a way to free his family, while the other will accompany himm—ensuring his cooperation throughout, while battling his inner demons. Kane must protect Lynch, without whose daily calls to an unknown number his family will be killed. Lynch must protect Kane because he’s the only one who can recover the missing contraband that the mob bosses so desire. They’ll battle through cops, the Japanese mafia, the army, and ultimately time for the big show down.
A good story with some hair-raising turns and twists, and an excellent, deep plot, Kane & Lynch is let down by very mediocre graphics, and sometimes uninspiring gameplay. It’s not that the action is bad, but mediocrity isn’t something I expected from such a good storyline. The story, the locales (at times) and the action make it something that shouldn’t be missed.
