IMG Reviews Kane & Lynch 2

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of OnLive's first person shooter, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days. The game returns players to the blood drenched world of the title characters where they struggle to survive the hostile environs of Shanghai.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

While the story and characters may disappoint a little, the gunplay has significantly improved. Although the first game isn't available from OnLive, it's worth noting for those who are familiar with the first title the effort the developers put into Kane & Lynch 2. It's now a rock solid shooter with powerful weapons and intense firefights. My only complaint is that they leave out gun names, leaving you to identify them by their icon. It's fairly straightforward third person cover action, with you being able to hide or crouch down behind just about any surface. You can then either blind-fire (which is surprisingly effective) or pop out to aim and shoot. You can only carry two weapons at anytime, and will burn through ammo quick, leaving you to scrounge for more supplies as you scurry about in firefights. It creates a good tension and balance since you are forced to be more strategic and conservative with your shots. There is enough weapon variety to keep anyone happily blasting away throughout, as different enemies and areas offer different firearms to use. Sadly, there are no grenades, but Lynch (and Kane if in Co-op) is able to pick up fire extinguishers and canisters of fuel to toss and blow up with a shot, a tactic which can devastate a group of foes. There are a few minor stealth sections, but since melee attacks have been removed in K&L 2 there's not much to them. You can also take a human shield, but it's far more effective to just blast everyone in the room or area.
