The original had its fair share of flaws, but the sequel appears to be more accomplished in a variety of ways. On top of that, you're looking at one of the more visceral, intense action experiences out there. It's just loaded with grit and that documentary-style camera angle infuses the game with a definite dose of dark realism. Here's a look at the story behind the madness; if it sounds appealing, you might have to give this one a try in a few weeks time. Kane and Lynch aren't role models but then again...they aren't supposed to be.
