Sequel to an ugly, ugly game. Rental indeed.

Edited by Spacetrucking

Damn, that's a little too short for my taste. I guess rental it is. I'm glad the game at least looks great in motion.
 
Interesting choice of shirt Jeff.

The questions will always come up.. IS Jeff biased toward this game series?  I haven't seen the video yet, but my gut response to the score is to think along these lines.  From what I can assume from Jeff, he is neutral when it comes to games and gives everyone a fair shot.  But there will always be people out there who will claim that Jeff is being biased.

Who cares what they say. Kane & Lynch gave us Giant Bomb. That alone makes the game awesome. 
 
... well, it's still quite bad, but hey! You know what I mean :P

 I like the style at least. As a medium games don't approach this kind of thing very often. I suppose its because the technology has yet to plateau.

Good review

Posted by Matiss

Looks pretty darn bad.

@TekZero: I think that Jeff is completely unbiased towards this series, in fact when footage of the new camera flares started showing up he seemed pretty excited about the game, it's just a shame that the series can't seem to nail the gameplay to back up the style of the games.

Doubt it considering there's a Joystiq and Kotaku review with the same exact complains/positives Jeff had

Great review Jeff. Very informative. I might pick this up when its really cheap as I don't really rent games.

Posted by Vitor

Loved the editing in this review (and Jeff's somewhat indirect acknowledgement of the site's obsession with his particular connection with the first game - let's move on indeed). 
 
Shame about the game though - had been looking forward to this one. The visuals/story held so much promise.

Posted by Yummylee

Great review style! Plus the bits where the game froze on the 360 looked pretty cool, though I'm sure it'll becoming annoying very soon after every kill. 
 
Also another JusticeCovert Cameo!

Posted by DrBobUK

I wonder if Jeff will get fired from Giant Bomb.

Posted by Cramsy

Very professional review guys, one of the best.

Posted by Chris2KLee

Good review, can't say I was too surprised, the demo was pretty underwhelming in my opinion.

Posted by hustlerlt

And I expected that this game will have an interesting and long story.What a shame.

Posted by MattBosten

Like Jeff I really like the visual style and Fragile Alliance was really fun in the first game. Shame about the awful glitch in the 360 version. Might rent this once they release a patch to fix up the game.

I think I'll probably get this out of the bargain bin in a couple of years.

That's pretty good.
Posted by CitizenKane

Very nice review.  Sucks that this game is so short.  I should also switch to the PS3 version on my GameFly queue just in case.

Posted by Paddis

This is what I cal some damn good reviewing.  First of all, though I wasn't expecting him to, Jeff wasn't bitter about what happened after reviewing the last game, that's good. Secondly, he gives an honest review, saying what's good about the game and what's bad, which is exactly what people want to hear. Way too often when others review sequels to somewhat bad games, half of the time is spent talking about the last game. 
  
Fantastic review!

the shirt!

Posted by JJWeatherman

I love it Jeff! For everyone else out there making video reviews: This is how it's done. Really great use of video and editing in this one. I was writing off video reviews as somewhat unnecessary before, but you've proved me wrong. Keep it up guys. 
 
(I also absolutely loved your ability to stick it to this game, saying some of the exact same things you said about the first game. Love it. :P)

Posted by Daniel_Newton

That was a really great review, nicely done Jeff.
However, I'm afraid I'll have to fire you now.

Posted by mrcraggle

Jeff genuinely seemed excited by this but the bugs, length and gameplay seem to hamper its cool visual style.

Posted by Tebbit

Awesome video makes me happy. Nice work, folks!

OK - I've had it with the Kane and Lynch 1 gamespot connection comments over the past few weeks but holy crap, nice spot! That actually made me chuckle. You get a free pass for that.

Great video review. (I want more of these ! )
 
And wow @ the shit going on in the 360 version.

Posted by natetodamax

Glad to see video reviews making a comeback. I've always enjoyed these. Well done as always!

This game is getting owned by everyone lol. Destructoid's review had me in stiches.
Very good and clever review there Gerstmann, love what you did with the camera. it gave me a few good lulz as well.

Edited by blacklab

4 hours for a full price game? That's 15 bucks an hour.  Buying this would be insane.

Posted by Quacktastic

There is no way that those 360 problems don't get patched, but how do you even release it like that?

Posted by GunnBjorn

The video is definitely a homage to K&L: DD's visual style. 
Very good review, Jeff. 
You pointed out both the pros and cons without dishonoring the game. 
A rental it is for me!
Posted by dantey

Kind of disappointed. The visual style sold me, when they did the Quick Look. But 4 hours? Come on! They had an interesting premise on there hands. A bit sad to see, that it turned out this way.

Why no love for the PC?

Posted by AndrewB

Now get back to making Hitman games!

Posted by drag

That was ... actually, exactly what I had expected after playing the demo. It's really visually impressive, I loved all the little effects (and I didn't think I would) but when you get down to it, it's just a standard cover-based third person shooter. Not especially exciting. That is criminally little playtime as well.

Posted by UberExplodey

I know this will fall on deaf ears, but – the overabundance of these "you're fired" jokes are fucking lame. Stop. Please. 
 
I was really excited about this game and had hopes that this sequel would improve the franchise like AC2 did for its predecessor...but what a bummer.  Great review, Jeff. 

Posted by buzz_killington

That shirt Jeff.... that shirt...

Edited by Scooper

Great video review. More of these please!
 
And yeah, apart from seeing that dude run naked through Shanghai cut to pieces this game has little interest to me.

Posted by Jonnyflash80

Great review Jeff. You rock!

@Killjoi: 
hahaha. great comic.
 
Great review. 
 
Great day.
Posted by DXmagma

so beside showing how a cloverfield game could work, not worth my time. i'll just watch a playthrough on youtube and get the visual flair that way.

Posted by Walreese55

It's amazing how it was nearly three years ago when all this shit started. Think about it, without Kane and Lynch, there would be no Giantbomb, no Quick Looks, no Endurance Run, no Bombcast as crazy as it could be, no memes, probably no Screened.com, no mass exodus from Gamespot. Makes you wonder.

Posted by MeatSim

4 hour long single player? that is weak.
