Ground-breaking art direction, relentless action gameplay, and innovative multiplayer re-define the action-shooter experience, and position this product from IO Interactive as the stand-out shooter of 2010.

New Shooter Gameplay New shooter mechanics built from the ground up include a button-activated cover system and refined AI as well as:
- Down not Dead – a second chance that allows the player to shoot back or crawl to cover in one-shot kill situations.
- Human Shields – an act of desperation that adds more dimension to the cover system.
Critically-Acclaimed Heist Multiplayer Fragile Alliance is back with innovative new modes:
- Fragile Alliance – based on Greed, Betrayal & Revenge; now extended with more risk and more rewards. For up to 8 players.
- Undercover Cop – adds an extra level of paranoia to Fragile Alliance as teams are infiltrated by a mole set to stop the alliance.
- Cops & Robbers – creates a new team-mode dynamic with Robbers trying to protect the money and Cops trying to retrieve it. For up to 12 players.
- Arcade mode – Sharpen your heist skills in single player Arcade mode. The difficulty increases with each level, progressing as long as you survive and escape.
Rating: 3/5shooter with a gimmick, better than the first
Pros: vastly improved over the first game in almost every way
provides some, um, different moments you won't see in any other game.
Cons: may be better than the first, but still pushing an average experience.
Game is short.
Game has steady-cam option defaulted to 'off' and the constant shaking and bouncing of the camera make the game impossible to play. Why?
game also has weird issues. Pistols are super accurate long range weapons while almost everything not a sniper rifle can't hit anything unless you're really close.
The AI is still pretty bad. The net code is pretty shaky with some weird glitches. Game tends to restart you if you die within a second of getting your downed partner back on his feet (super annoying on hardest difficulty).
The multiplayer mode, even when I got this game over a year ago, is D-E-A-D as a doornail.
Other Thoughts: three eggs doesn't mean bad or good. IMHO, game is very average but for $15, you'll be getting your money's worth.
Kane and Lynch Dead Men (the first one, not this one) was such a bad game that Jeff Gerstman was fired from Gamespot for giving an accurate review of how awful it was. How the game has any apologists is baffling.
Kane and Lynch 2 on the other hand at least has features that work, but the game feels average. Despite their attempts to make the game different, it still feels like a run of the mill third person shooter but with gimmicky bad pixely video effects to emulate being chased around by an asian with a cheap camera filming you the whole time.
