IO: Kane & Lynch 2 like Marmite

You either love it or hate it, and that's fine with us, says developer

Niels Jørgensen, general manager at Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days developer IO Interactive, thinks the studio's latest game is like Marmite.


"I think it's a game that you either love or hate," he told "It's interesting that we have scores ranging from 1/10 to 9/10, so we have critics that really loved it and those that didn't really get it.

"... I think that's fine. I actually like the approach that you take some chances to reach out to an audience. People have different tastes in all kinds of media and we see that with music, films, books and also with videogames."

He added: "It's about choosing an approach to give people entertainment and variety and I think we've been able to produce something that's a bit different, if not to everyone's taste."

In its review Games master said Kane & Lynch 2's gritty visual style and superb multiplayer were enough to make up for a solid campaign short on variety. What did you make of the game?
