At least the sequel shouldn't get a certain person fired for doing his job.  And no, I'm not interested in this game... the first one was shit.

Kane and Lynch: why developers and producers should pitch ideas to executives, not vice versa.

Yeah, not a surprise. I think most GB posters are familiar with a few things that the game did right. Say, the advertising.

Hell, forget the Gerstmann/GS thing. The way those TV commercials were saturating ESPN, I probably have 2 maiden aunts who know that Kane and Lynch is the name of a videogame.

When bad games sell, it really pisses me off.

I enjoyed the first, and I'm looking forward to the next game.  I'm way more interested in the next Hitman game though.

This is a great place to ask that question, seeing as a lot of people here "followed" Jeff from Gamespot (including myself), so there's probably a lot of hate towards it here. But the demo was awful, and I do hope that they try creating a new game that doesn't involve any of their previous work. Perhaps they should try and get another publisher, Eidos haven't really made to many good games recently.

I completely agree so focus on Freedom Fighters 2 and Hitman 5 than comeback to kane and lynch because it needs the most work

Yes, except this time it'll get Brad fired. Kidding.

But I'm really not that excited for it, but they could expand on the multiplayer, which was the only thing they had going for them.

lol it would be hilarious if it comes out and Jeff reviewed it, but in the same sense... I like Jeff too much to have him suffer through a terrible game like that.

Jeff would review it and fire himself, then make CouchFire.com that him and Ryan were talking about a while back.

I really enjoyed Kane & Lynch: Dead Men and I would definitely buy a sequel if the developer decide to create one. I thought that Kane & Lynch: Dead Men had very interesting online gameplay.

Yeah I played the demo and loved it. This game isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be, I think most of the hate comes from Jeff being fired for giving it a bad score so they jump on the "Kane and Lynch sucks" bandwagon without giving this game a fair chance. If you can ignore some of the flaws this game does has it is great. Take Gears of War for example it had NO story, NO character development, loads of glitches and exploits online, the single-player only lasted about five hours at the most, and it really wasn't that hard, yet many people think its the greatest game sense Half-Life 2. Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3 have a shit load problems with shotty story and in fact Halo has never had character development in them. Yet all of those games I listed are amazing (except for Call of Duty 4 in my opinion but people would argue that.) I think most people are losing the sense of why we play games too, to have fun, and sometimes having fun beats out every flaw. Take Shadowrun for example, people would argue that its one of the greatest online experencies on the Xbox 360 yet it got raped by reviewers *coughJeffcough* for lacking many things that are standard in today's games but it was just so damn fun. Its like Counter-Srike on the Xbox sure it was lacking in many areas but when you said "I will play for a half hour, and then three hours latter you finally stopped playing, that is when you find that despite some flaws a game is enjoyable. And yes it may seem like I'm over deffending KLDM but then again, isn't the hate for this game a little over the top?

I would love a sequel, but they can improve on some of the shooting and better enemy AI. More of the movie-like setpieces, like Tokyo nightclub, and bank robbery. 

The story is just so damn good and adult, I would love for them to resolve the ending. Who lives, who dies? Kane's daughter carries the job forward?
