you play 5 minutes worth and you've just played everything this game has to offer.
FWIW, the same was true of Max Payne, and I enjoyed that plenty.

How'd you get AGP from that???? Whoa man, lay off the dope.

I thought the 7900 GS was only an AGP card but evidently it comes in PCI-E as well.

get this - people in australia are not responsible enough to brush their own teeth, so the gov is putting fluride int he water supply :S
Do you live in the USA? Fluoride is put in the municipal water supply for years, partly because it has been shown that this is done, the cases cavities and tooth loss drop significantly. It's a good public health practice.

Well, I din't think the demo was that bad - controls don't feel all that tight, the weapons aren't really all that accurate (even the handgun) and the 1 shot 1 kill does NOT apply.

Other than that, I will give it a try when it goes on super sale - I liked it, nothing to rush out and buy, but you can order your team around and they actually shoot people, so that is nice.

After playing through CoD4, I feel a little jipped that I can't pick up other weapons on the ground and use them.

Oh well. I don't know what all the negativity is - looks nice, plays ok, could be some fun there.....$30.00 worth, not more than $35.00.

/edit: Oh, and the blatant swearing every other word makes me think the team that work on the dialog is a little too young to be writing dialog. heh.

Some people are like Slinkys. Not really good for anything, but you just can't help but giggle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Oh, about the game. Its rubbish. If you want a shooter, do yourself a favor and get COD4

Couldn't agree more played through SP at least a half dozen times and MP is even more fun best FPS this year.

Can and Lynch on the other hand is really bad shelved it two levels in, its the second worst game so far this year SOF payback easily takes number one.

Downloaded the demo. Get's a big meh from me. The idea of the game is kinds cool, but the shooting is boring as hell, it wouldn't let me control with mouse+keyboard since my 360 controller was plugged in, and the 360 control was slow and terribly sluggish. There is also a lack of any sort of key pop-ups, so that means you have to remember all the controls from looking at the options screen buried in the menus.

Performance was decent but nothing special, and of course badly optimized. 1680x1050, doesn't look all that special, and kept jumping between 60+ FPS with no action on screen and 15 FPS with a bunch of action on screen. Combined with sluggish controls, definitely not all that fun.

I guess the one good part about the demo was that it didn't have any of the GFW Live nonsense that the full game has. tongue

*uninstalls*

I'm curious... have you actually played the whole game or just the first 5 minutes?

I don't know about the others, but I, sadly, have played the whole game from beginning 'till the end. But that's because I'm a kind of person that once he starts on something, he wants to end it. That's with real life projects, favors, etc, and yes, also with games. No matter how fucking bad they are, I usually finish them.

Some games are, ofcourse, and exception. Like Blacksite: Area 51 and Gears of War. BlackSite is one of the worst games I've ever played and I think it would've even be a fuck-up if a similar game was released in the Half Life era, and Gears of War is just way too long (for the PC atleast) considering it's BORING gameplay.

Yes, I think Gears of War is the exact same crap in a shitbox as Kane & Lynch, but Gears' crap was spoiling over the edge of the box.. making your harddisk all covered in shit unless you uninstalled that crapfortress.

Well at least these guys will be easy to spot by their nicknames, hopefully Blue will make short work of them in the future.

This is the game that was slammed on Gamespot starting the controversy, right?
One of the things that stood out for me were the comments about the low quality AI and the death & revive system, so I will be passing.

Violent or not, the game sucks so by not buying it, you will be doing yourself a favor.

Like Max Payne and Stranglehold you say?
Can't be THAT bad.

You got to be fucking kidding me on the Max Payne mark. That game is beyond great. Unflawed. Perfect. Talking about 1 Šnd 2.

Sorry - some things don't carry on the 'nets.
I was saying, if someone is comparing it to Max Payne (awesome) and Stranglehold (haven't played yet, but want it), then IF comparing to those 2 - how can it be said that K&L sucks? You know, if A=B and B=C, then A=C right?

heh. Anway, I will get it when it goes on sale at gogamer for an acceptable price.
