In case you don’t know already, Kane & Lynch 2 is using a shaky-cam style with film grain effect. The opinion among the P*N team is split on whether the art style adds to the experience or ruins it. If you are a PSN+ subscriber you will have had the option to pick up the demo for a week now and if you are still on the fence, our very own Nathan gave his impressions of the demo last week too.

The first Kane & Lynch promised so much and let a lot of people down and although it sounds like IO Interactive have learned from the mistakes of the first game, it makes sense to try out the demo. It’s available right now if you own a PS3 but if you are a PC or Xbox360 owner, you’ll have to wait until the 26th July.
Now what was that I mentioned about achievements and trophies? Oh yes, we’ve got the details right here for you, yes you!
