I really liked the second one, the gritty story and settings. Great multiplayer, it was just too short.

Edit - Eidos themselves have said the series will continue, I guess we have to see.

Moar Edit with corrected link below -

Yeah, I know all the cool kids hate KL but this article below gives a good explanation of why KL2 was better. A lot of people only played the demo which isn't enough to see how the story unfolds.

I didn't know it did well enough.

[Insert joke about Jeff and the Kane and Lynch franchise here]

Kidding.

Is this one going to be: Kane and Lynch: The Movie: The Game? Or did they give up on that movie?

#4 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

The first game was great (yes yes, gamespot and all that, but the game itself as an interactive program that you play was quite the fun atmospheric ride), the second game was a big meh, so i'm wondering if K&L3 will go full on [insert generic TPS here]

#5 Posted by Commisar123 (1790 posts) -

Well I keep trying to like Kane and Lynch series so if I'm lucky this one will be great

@MooseyMcMan: I think its in development hell

People still buy Kane and Lynch? Really?

What a waste of io's time. Kane and Lynch 2 was garbage.

#10 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

I don't know, the second one was such a huge disappointment. It had potential, but if they don't do something about it, it's just going to...

#11 Posted by Slayeric (257 posts) -

Nope. Only care about Hitman news from IO. This only serves to sadden me that they're still wasting time with Kane & Lynch still. I'm quite honestly interested in seeing them trying something new that isn't either of those franchises.

If they keep making Kane and Lynch games then they're bound to make a good one eventually, right? They could be using the series as a platform to experiment with their tech for future Hitman games, in which case they can make five K&L games a year for all I care.

They're working on Hitman: Absolution. They aren't saying much about it. Which is a shame. Because that's twenty times more interesting than any news about K&L.

#13 Posted by VilhelmNielsen (1734 posts) -

They got closer with the second one, right? Third time's the charm!

#14 Posted by FritzDude (2253 posts) -

Let me guess: Another 4 hour long singleplayer "mature" story filled with F-bombs that takes place in a "exotic" region with a moving camera operator that films, censors and distorts everything, and with a tacked on multiplayer that won't last a month? Yeah... just focus on Hitman please. Thanks.

#15 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4909 posts) -

Great they are wasting more money on that shit series.

#16 Posted by EpicBenjamin (624 posts) -

I understand why people don't like the K&L;, but as a huge fan of the series, this makes me super excited.

#18 Posted by luchadeer797 (294 posts) -

Awesome, I guess I'm one of the minority for liking the game. Only played the second but the visual style was so striking and the pace so good that I loved it. Can't wait.

#19 Posted by Jay444111 (2441 posts) -

Why in the hell are they doing this, I thought they said they would making freedom fighters 2 after the crap known as the first kane and lynch? Why must they hate awesome ideas and do bad ones like no tommorrow!? WHY????

#20 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

I liked the second game, I wish the multiplayer was still active.

So Kane and Lynch is the video game equivalent of monkeys writing Shakespeare?

Nah. Only one of those things can happen.

Waggity Schmaggitty Doo!

#23 Posted by bybeach (4730 posts) -

Freedom Fighters, a game begging for a sequel just tossed away.

#24 Posted by xaLieNxGrEyx (2605 posts) -

I respect the K&L2; camera. I hate beyond belief and it makes me sick to play, but damn if that wasn't a ballsy idea.

#25 Posted by SSully (4129 posts) -

I thought the second one looked really cool. I played the demo a few times, I just didn't think it was worth 60 bucks.

#26 Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4308 posts) -

Im gonna be honest and say that I only came in here just so I could see if there were any good Jeff/Kane and Lynch jokes...

#27 Posted by Animasta (14650 posts) -

I hate to be THAT GUY, but there was actually no mention in the thing they quoted for being about K&L3. It could be a new IP for all we know, or it could be for hitman 5 (that would be the wrong decision but hey)

#28 Posted by Redbullet685 (6029 posts) -

K&L 2 was so disappointing. The first wasn't too good, either.

Yeah, true. However the article did say the game would have big co-op elements, something KL has and the hitman series has not thus far. Also, I edited in the first post an article where the studio execs said the series will continue.

#31 Posted by Alphazero (1536 posts) -

I liked K&L2. It looked really good, the story was batshit crazy and I like that, and it had the shooting of dudes. I'll play another.

#32 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -

holy shit they made a 2nd one already?

#33 Posted by SomeDeliCook (2228 posts) -

I rather loved Kane and Lynch 2. The atmosphere of it really pulled me in. The was short and sweet, it was around 5 hours long, and for good reason: some of those last missions dragged on.

I really enjoyed it though. It really felt like two guys completely shit down on their luck are just trying to live through another night yet always mess things up. I loved it, and the level of detail in the environments was amazing. Co-op was pretty fun too, as was the arcade mode.

I didn't even play the first game past the mission where you are all of a sudden in a military game. Two times I tried to play through that game, both ended at that same spot.

#34 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

serious question:

Would you be interested in Kane and Lynch 3 if it starred Joe Kucan as Kane?

#35 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

well this is news. i didn't think kane and lynch two did that great to have them a second one. 
 
i wonder if jeff is going to get fired.

#36 Posted by Vodun (2370 posts) -

I have quite enjoyed everything IO has produced so far (even Mini Ninjas)...Heja Danmark!

#37 Posted by squirrelnacho (329 posts) -

I just realized the third link I posted in the original post was incorrect, its the right one now. It just links to someones opinion on what the second game did well.

#38 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

I loved what they TRIED to do with the second one but dear god, please let this franchise die already.

#39 Posted by Yummylee (21293 posts) -

I'm intrigued. Both games had the potential but failed on it or just didn't deliver enough of it... it's still a bad sign that their two attempts still resulted in a puff of smoke, but it's the sheer possibility of what a K&L game could evolve into makes it hard not to get excited again for another. I actually really liked the characters for how unorthodox they are, and they make GTA protagonists look like Saints, and the ultra-gritty style of both games were immensely appealing. They got so close to making a pretty quality product with K&L2, but for whatever reason they got lazy? Budget restraints? Whatever the fuck happened, it really tore down what could of been something special.

I'm just hoping K&L3 can finally deliver on what they attempted with the first two.

#40 Posted by squirrelnacho (329 posts) -

The main issue with the first game was the shooting and squad mechanics felt off. They fixed that in the second game but it was too short.

#41 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

Kane and Lynch continues to be the biggest disappointment in modern video games. I'm torn; I like the idea of there being more K&L out there but both games have been pretty bad. If they would take the time to make it properly rather than trying to be just another video game, IO could have something special on their hands. They won't.

#42 Posted by jayjonesjunior (1087 posts) -

More naked dudes and 2 hours campaigns. Yay.

#43 Posted by GunstarRed (5043 posts) -

The first game was about six hours long and the second about four. I'm hoping they can just cut it down to about  two hours this time. 
 
STOP MAKING KANE & LYNCH GAMES!

It's a four hour campaign actually. Honestly get your facts straight GAWSH!!

#45 Edited by RobertOrri (1120 posts) -

Square-Enix rarely dumps a franchise. This should not surprise anyone.

#46 Posted by guiseppe (2838 posts) -

Why do they even bother at this point? Furthermore, I didn't think it sold well enough.

#47 Posted by LobsterVendetta (105 posts) -

I am quite excited for the idea of a 3rd Kane and Lynch. I understand why people dislike the series, it is very polarizing in its subject matter (to the point where people claim the characters shoot civilians, when in truth it is actually optional/lousy aiming than story related) and the sequel especially was a bit too short, but as a whole the series has done a lot of things I personally find interesting or enjoy. I like the characters and story, I liked the atmosphere, especially in K&L2, and I had no problem with either game's game-play.

That said, I don't see the series getting past a 3rd game, or at least I wouldn't want to see any more than that unless the story REALLY calls for it. Improvements to make it an overall better product for almost everyone would be great, but in terms of story I'd just figure that these guys can only go so far. Hell I'd imagine that going grocery shopping for either one will eventually end up going south one way or another. SomeDeliCook summarized it well as "It really felt like two guys completely shit down on their luck are just trying to live through another night yet always mess things up." And I find that just downright neat.
