Tuesday, PlayStation Plus owners were lucky enough to get a few extra days practice with the demo with Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days. Today, it’s been announced that now everyone gets a chance to play as Lynch and run through the streets of Shanghai, as it’s now open to the public for the next 48 hours. Giving you an opportunity to play as Lynch, you will run thorough a quick 20-minute demo, or playing through Fragile Alliance – the online multiplayer game – gives you a taste of what’s to come.
Playing through the demo, it’s a mad rush in either the campaign or the online versions. The gritty, film-noir feel and the fade-ins are interesting, and they add their flavor, but it’s not needed. In fact, it actually takes away from gameplay and makes it harder to focus on what you need to do: move from point A to B, or in Fragile Alliance, find where you specifically need to go. With no directional motivations – save for Kane telling you we need to go this direction once – and everything looks the same. If you combine that with an awkwardly set up targeting system, and this is shaping out to be a picky game.
