Story- Ok, first thing's first. Kane and Lynch dog days is a game that has an evidently more subtle approach to the stories of third person shooting. For starters, this is not a game where you play as the obvious hero, this is a game that puts you in the shoes of two washed up anti-heroes. These are two beliveable individuals who are brought to a life-like persona through clever and highly beliveable diolouge and voice acting. Secondly, this is not a game where you're going to be preventing world war 3, or saving the world from an alien invasion. No, instead the two protagonists are simply fighting to save themselves. The storyline behind this game is a wonderfully simple, yet believable masterpiece. Sure enough the premis of the of the story is arguably in place to throw the player through a vast majority of dilemmas, but because of this there are plenty of enemies for you to grind up with any weapon you find. However there is no escaping the very, very short length of the story. On easy difficulty a player of any degree of skill could easily breeze through the entirety of the game in less than 3 hours. Yep 3 hours.
Gameplay- I can easily credit the game for it's life like and authentic camera movements and realistic gritty settings. However I can easily say that the shooting mechanics for Kane and Lynch dog days are bare bones. You can: shoot, take cover, aim, and scavange. That's it. There are no ground breaking mechanics here, just the minimum. It is a sincere disappointment that there are no innovative features other than in multiplayer. Thankfuly the game redeems itself with it's multiplayer offering. The vast majority of multiplayer is less about shooting and more about trust as your team mates can cunningly plot against you and therefore shoot you down for more money. Hey it's one less share though right?
Graphics- Straight out of the bag Kane and Lynch dog days is easily one of the most recognisable shooters to date. The entire game feels like it's being filmed by a hand-held camera. Think of it as a youtube video being live streamed in the middle of a gunfight. However get right up to the details, and you suddenly notice that the blured lights and other camera are only there to mask the poor texture qualities. Also I do have to complain about the complete lack of weapon animations. For example press the switch weapon button, and watch as the weapon you want to use magically teleports into your character's hand. Also there is no sign of the weapon you don't have equiped meaning that if you use one weapon, it never explains where the other weapon goes. Only shotguns are seen slung across your characters back when unequiped.
In conclusion I liked Kane and Lynch dog days because of the atmosphere it's clever camera movements create. Add this to a highly realistic story and you find that; Kane and Lynch dog days is realistic in some ways but sufffers from some lazy short cuts taken by the developers (I.E missing animations).

The Length: K&L Dog Days is very short, only took me about 6 or 7 hours to complete. Its at a nonstop, action packed pace though and is perfect if you don't like sitting through arduous cut scenes and boring, open world roaming.
The bad: The selection of weapons isn't great and neither is the gears of war style cover system which is very glitchy and sees you constantly move into the wrong cover position at crucial moments in your campaign only to be pummelled by wave after wave of bullets. The other annoying part about K&L Dog Days is that some of the enemies are very very hard to kill. I sat there for 2 or 3 minutes sometimes just trying to shoot down an enemy hiding in cover and seeing him soak up an unholy amount of ammo.
The good: What I really liked about this game was the fantastic atmosphere created from the flashing lights and gritty back alleys of Shanghai city. The entire game looks as though it has been shot by a handycam which adds to the fast, frantic gameplay and also adds interesting aesthetics with pixilated moments of blood and gore.
If your a fan of 90's action blockbuster movies then this one is for you. Its clear that it isn't the best produced shooter out there but the gun play and interesting 3rd person view is more than worth the $17 I paid for it. If the make this one into a trilogy I will definitely be picking it up full price. Rating: *** Good. Grab it while its cheap
“First time played. Really enjoyed the no stop action and 3rd person handy cam views. Enemies are difficult to kill and the cover system isnt great but good, cheap game. About 3 or 4 levels in....”
