Cert: 18+
Platform: Xbox 360, PC, PS3
Genre: Third Person Shooter

Kane and Lynch 2 starts with a bloody torture sequence and violent shoot-out that sets the tone for a blood splattered romp through Shanghai.The game is played though the view-point of deranged sociopath Kane - a man on the verge of a psychotic killing spree. IQ Interactive said they wanted Dog Days to look like a documentary and there's certainly lots of gritty realism but for some reason the pixelated nudity - and this is a violent, 18+ release - is blurred out.

Players who like their fire-fights on motorways, rooftops and office complexes or in any public locations that results in pandemonium will be find something fun, or moving, to shoot at here. There's a bevy of weapons that pack a real punch and a cover system familiar to anyone whose played Gears of War.

Unfortunately, the single-player game isn't much longer than five hours, there's only six multi-player maps and disappointingly, just several weeks after the release date, the wait time for an online match is testing.
That would be a rental then.
