Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a cooperative third-person shooter developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidos Interactive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and gaming platform Games for Windows - LIVE. It has been confirmed that the film studio Lionsgate has bought the rights for a movie adaptation.[2]



The game opens with a voiceover of a letter, addressed to a girl named Jenny, which is being written by her father, Adam 'Kane' Marcus. Kane is traveling to death row after being convicted of the manslaughter of 25 civilians in Venezuela. Another death row inmate, James Seth Lynch, hints of a mid-destination breakout unbeknownst to Kane. Their truck is involved in a head-on collision by a group of mercenaries, who set them free. Though it quickly becomes apparent that this isn't a rescue, but a kidnapping. The two are taken to a shopping mall that is under construction, where they are confronted by the four surviving members of The7. The villainous leader Elder Brother, Kane's nemesis Younger Brother, Kane's former best friend Carlos, and the silent sociopathic killer Mute. They make him an offer; retrieve what he stole from them in three weeks, or his wife and daughter will be executed. Lynch acts as a watchdog, reporting in to The7 on Kane's movements.

From left to right: Thapa, Lynch, Kane, Shelly, and Rific.

They want back what Kane stole from them. Kane informs to Lynch that he did not steal it, but he knows who did, and what bank they stashed it in. Using the assistance of an unnamed vaultbreaker, they manage to break into the bank. Halfway to the vault, Kane tells Lynch to secures the hostages in the lobby. Reluctantly, Lynch heads upstairs while Kane and the Vaultbreaker continue to the vault. Once they access the vault, Kane immediately uses a keycode to unlock the deposit box. He retrieves one briefcase, but discovers that the second deposit box is empty. In desperation, he orders the infuriated vaultbreaker to blow open all the safety deposit boxes. Seeing that the money is not in any of the deposit boxes, Kane angrily realizes who has taken it. They make their way to the lobby to discover that Lynch has killed all the hostages in a blind rage, and the police have arrived quicker than they expected. They narrowly manage to get the escape van through, and get away from the scene. After losing the police, Kane informs Lynch that they need to go to Tokyo[3] to retrieve the last briefcase.

They head for a nightclub owned by the daughter of Retomoto, a Japanese Crime Lord. Unknownst to Lynch, Kane plans to kidnap Retomoto's daughter, Yoko, and hold her for ransom. After kidnapping Yoko, Kane reveals to Lynch who Yoko really is. This infuriates Lynch, as he claims he would have never knowingly kidnapped the daughter of a crime boss. As they escape the Tokyo nightclub, Kane and Lynch arrange a meeting with Retomoto to trade his daughter for the briefcase. Using the assistance of a pair of mercenaries known as Ryu and Shinja, Kane and Lynch proceed to a park by the Nan Lu Intersection. However, Retomoto is not there, leaving a cell phone for Kane. Retomoto, on the phone, tells Kane that he knows what The7 have done, and offers to work with Kane to get his wife and daughter back, as well as to solve the problem of The7. This infuriates Lynch, and he accidentally shoots and kills Yoko while trying to stop her getting away. Kane and the mercenaries then proceed to escape Retomoto's men and make their way to the escape van. Kane is furious with Lynch, but he soon realizes that they are out of time, and must return to The7.

Kane heads back to Los Angeles in an attempt to renegotiate with The7. Lynch questions his decision, while Kane claims that Lynch is a dead man too. Lynch denies this, and reveals that he has secretly made a deal for his survival, and even a position within The7. However, it becomes clear that The7 where simply using Lynch as a pawn. He is knocked out, and awakens to find Kane inside a shallow grave at a construction site. Kane's plea for extra time lands upon deaf ears, as The7 prepare to execute him and his family. The Brothers and Carlos depart for Havana, leaving Mute to execute Kane and his family. His wife and daughter soon arrive and confront Kane. While Kane desperately tries to talk to them, Mute shoots his wife right in front of him. Lynch, now fully conscious and infuriated, lunges at one of his captors, and in the confusion, an enraged Kane leaps out of the hole and brutally beats Mute to death with a shovel. As The7's reinforcements arrive, Kane and Lynch manage to defend Jenny from further attacks, and a large truck. After the area is clear, Kane tells Jenny to flee the scene and to continue to run no matter what.

After burying his wife by the highway, Kane decides to finish off The7 for the sake of his daughter's safety. He reluctantly allows Lynch to join his cause, after Lynch explains his own wife's murder and his supposed inability at that time to save her. With the help of the mining truck, they manage to smash through the wall of a nearby prison, inciting a riot and freeing a group of "dead men", (People who went against The7 in the past and were in turn disowned) forming their own band of ragtag convicts to wage war on The7. It is during the breaking out of Shelly, one of the convicts, that the murder of Lynch's wife is brought into doubt, with Shelly suspecting Lynch of killing his own wife, which Lynch denies.

Before flying to Havanna, Kane informs Lynch that they first need to return to Tokyo, and kill Retomoto to get the briefcase back. The crew manage to ambush and kill Retomoto at his headquarters, and retrieve the missing case. Before leaving, Kane carves on Retomoto's face a scar exactly like the one he has. Then they fight through the office complex and the streets to a bus station, where the group finally manages to escape.

Days later, Kane, Lynch and their 'dead men' - Thapa, Rific and Shelly - follow The7's remaining members to Havana.[4] Kane informs Lynch that The7 reap financial benefits from assisting factions in civil wars, with Havana supposedly the last job needed for their retirement. They find themselves caught up in an ongoing civil war, joining the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces and battling The7's military and paramilitary forces trying to make a Coup d’état. Throughout the battle in the war-torn streets, Kane constantly assures the group of rewards beyond even their retirement needs. They eventually track down Carlos, who tells the group that he has been betrayed by the Brothers after the Havana operation fell apart. Thapa deserts the group abruptly, mistrusting of the promised payment and the impromptu alliance with Carlos. The remaining group fight their way through the Venezuela jungle[5] and drug operations, managing to locate the Brothers' base of operations. Over radio chatter, it's revealed that Jenny has been kidnapped by the Brothers and is being held hostage. Serving as a distraction, Carlos decides to detonate a mine at the entrance of the base, but is caught by soldiers, and taken to the brothers. Kane and Lynch overhear the Brothers speaking to Carlos over radio chatter and hear him being executed by the younger brother because he "shouldn't have listened to Kane". With the assistance of Rific and Shelly, Kane and Lynch manage to storm the building and find Jenny in the middle of a courtyard, which is set up as an ambush by the Brothers, who confront Kane and prepare to execute him. Though in a split second, Kane manages to shoot the mine left undetonated beside Carlos' corpse, killing the Elder Brother with the resulting explosion. However, the Younger Brother manages to escape with Jenny in the confusion.

Meanwhile, Rific and Shelly are pinned down while trying to secure the airfield. Kane and Lynch manage to hitch a ride with one of their men, and shoot down the plane before it takes off. Kane then confronts the Younger Brother in the plane as he holds Jenny hostage. Kane manages to kill the Younger Brother, and then rescues a traumatized Jenny, who hates her father for leaving his family 14 years ago, and his double-cross of The7. Rific and Shelly are desperately calling for help, but Kane takes no notice, trying his best to ignore Jenny and Lynch's pleas. At a nearby helicopter pad, the player will have to make a choice whether to save his men, or escape in the helicopter with Jenny.

In one ending, Kane boards the helicopter with Jenny and leaves the remaining men, including Lynch, to 'burn'. Lynch sees him flying away and only says "I knew it, I always knew it". Jenny resents her father's actions, whispering to herself that she hates him.

In another ending, Lynch asks Kane if he is going to betray everyone again, and Kane answers that this time he will make the right choice. They head to Rific and Shelly's position. Kane takes Jenny with him, despite Lynch's apprehensions. They are too late to save Rific, but Shelly is still alive. He feels betrayed, despite the rescue attempt. As they escape to the pier, Jenny is shot by one of the soldiers. When the adrenaline shot failed to work on her, Kane desperately carries her body along, in denial of her apparent death. Shelly loses his patience and attempts to escape on one of the boats, either escaping or dying, leaving Kane and Lynch behind. Lynch is shot between his arm and his chest while he escapes on the last boat with Kane, and tells him to simply deal with his mistake, while Jenny's status is still unknown. The last image shows the boat peacefully going down the river. Lynch is unconscious or asleep, while Kane holds Jenny and whispers to her ear about the letter he tried to send her.


In campaign mode the player takes the role of Kane. The player is able to play through 16 stages with Lynch by his side, at times accompanied by other hired mercenaries. Co-op mode is available in which the second player will assume the role of Lynch. Though almost identical to Kane's style of gameplay, Lynch has short bursts of aggression in which nearly all AI characters are police, some sporting an animal's head. Lynch carries a shotgun and a revolver as side arm, while Kane carries a submachine gun and standard pistol, although this setup isn't exclusive, as holding the right analog stick near another ally allows you to swap weapons. Additional weapons such as grenades, sniper rifles and carbines can be picked up which can also be swapped between allies. The player can take cover by standing next to a wall, and can blindfire. While having hired mercenaries, the player can issue orders such as follow, move to a specific position, or attack.

Fragile Alliance

Fragile Alliance is the game's only online multiplayer mode, which consists of four maps: Hot Coffee, Late Night Opening, Withdrawal and A Walk In The Park. A free-to-download map pack released on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live provides four additional maps. The goal is to finish a several round match with the most money. Each round begins with all of the players as armed, balaclava-clad robbers, and players who have reached TrueSkill rank 50 and 30 will play as Kane and Lynch, respectively. Money can be used to buy better firearms and armor. Resistance is met in the form of armed AI controlled security guards and/or police officers. A player's money acts as a shield, but will quickly be dropped on the ground as the player is injured. To escape the level, a player must survive to meet a getaway vehicle. All players who survive without turning on their allies will split stolen money evenly.

A player's appearance in the game is influenced by their TrueSkill rank on the Xbox 360. Unlike Kane and Lynch's campaign mode, players can not sprint. If a player feels they have taken enough money to become a target for potential traitors, they can drop some of their money (thus becoming less of a scoring threat.)


For the development of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, Jesper Kyd was brought in to write the musical score for the game, having already written score for the Hitman series and Freedom Fighters. The single player was originally going to have online co-op[6] but was dropped at the last minute and limited to offline due to time restrictions and difficulty. Director Jens-Peter Kurup said that Scarface and Unforgiven were inspirations for the characters. The game was originally going to revolve around only Kane, with Lynch acting as a side-kick. But as the development went on, they decided to include Lynch in the story also.[7] Martin Guldbaek, the art director for the game, said that for creating each of the locations, the team went to Los Angeles for photo shooting. They combined this with concept artwork to create "locations that matched the character's mood and perspective". [8] Anders Poulsen is the lead character artist. According to him, he wanted to make characters "like no other". Kane was the first character to be designed, but was very different from his final appearance. (He was minus the scar on his face, and originally smoked a cigarette.) When Lynch was brought in, it added more "life" to Kane's character.[8]

The game went gold on October 31 2007, making the release date a full 10 days earlier.[9]

Downloadable content

Downloadable content was made available for Kane & Lynch on April 17 2008, entitled "The Dope Bag". This gave out 4 new maps: Clean Cut, Hooker’s Trail, Flying High and Hasta La Vista, plus adding 250 Gamerscore for the Xbox 360 version bringing the total to 1250.[10]


As announced by Eidos[11], a trailer and teaser site have been launched. The sequel, named Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, is being prepared for a 2010 release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.[12]


A film adaptation is in the works from Lionsgate. The script was written by Kyle Ward who also penned the upcoming film Fiasco Heights which is being produced by Platinum Dunes for Universal. Bruce Willis has signed on for the film as the role of Kane and according to Lionsgate, Kevin Gage has signed on for the role of Lynch.[13]


The game received mixed reviews upon release. As of December 5, 2007 on the review aggregator Game Rankings, the Xbox 360 version of the game had an average score of 67.5% based on 42 reviews.[14] On Metacritic, the Xbox 360 version has a metascore of 65 out of 100, based on 57 reviews.[15] On Game Rankings, the PS3 version had a score of 65.8% based on 19 reviews.[16] On Metacritic, the PS3 version has a metascore of 64 out of 100, based on 23 reviews.[17] One reason cited for giving the PlayStation 3 version of the game a lower score is the lack of voice chat during the online mode, a feature the Xbox 360 version supports.

GameTrailers awarded the game an overall score of 8.0/10,[18] stating that although there are some flaws in the game, the package as a whole made it "easy to recommend". On the other end of the scale, NTSC-uk gave it 3/10, calling it "a sickly mess of a game with the multitude of negatives undermining every positive".[19]

A 6/10 score by GameSpot was rumored to be responsible for the firing of editor Jeff Gerstmann. The controversy arose due to advertising for the game being bought on the site prior to the game's release. GameSpot has denied the two are linked.

Electronic Gaming Monthly awarded the game a 7.2/10 rating, saying it had "great story, pacing, and variety" yet complained about the absence of online co-op and poor aiming.

The Australian PC games magazine PC Powerplay gave the PC version of the game an 8/10, "Excellent", citing "great dialogue", "impressive locations" and "satisfying action" as highlights while criticising its length and the final act of the game, suggesting it "loses ambition" compared to the earlier parts of the game which "[took] some pages out of Mann's notebook"[20].



The Kane & Lynch: Dead Men Original Soundtrack was composed, arranged and produced by Jesper Kyd and released on November 23, 2007. There are currently no intentions to release the soundtrack for sale, however, the special edition of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men contains a bonus disc with seven tracks.[21]

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a cooperative action game developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidos Interactive. The game depicts a violent and chaotic journey of two men — a flawed mercenary and a medicated psychopath — and their brutal attitude towards right and wrong.



  • [Letter to Jenny] Dear Jenny, I've been trying to write you this letter for fourteen years. Today's my last chance. This afternoon I will pay for my mistakes with my life. It's only fair. As you know if you've read the papers, my life as a mercenary and all the pain I've caused, most of it is true. I should regret it all, I should be scared of dying, but I'm not. I can't anymore. The only feeling I have left is regret, regret that I'll never get to know you. You are all that matters. Sorry I never understood. Your father, Kane.

Kane: I'm pretty sure he doesn't.
Yoko: So what made you come crawling back?
Kane: Yoko I need your help here.
Yoko: And why would I help you?[Lynch approaches]
Yoko: You wouldn't.[Lynch punches Yoko out cold]
Kane: That's enough.
Lynch: Whoa she's all limp I didn't even hit her that hard.
Kane: Just makes our job easier.
Yoko: Do you know who I am?
Kane: Shut her the fuck up!
Lynch: Where's the goddamn briefcase?
Yoko:[Yoko knees Lynch in the groin] I'm Retomoto's daughter you fuckhead!
Lynch: Aw fuck!
Kane: Come on we have to get to her.
Lynch: Retomoto? What have you made me do? Why didn't you tell me who she is?
Kane: Because you would flake out if you'd known.
Lynch: "Flake"? I wouldn't have done it if I knew!
Kane: Now just get a grip we have to get a hold of her!
Lynch: I have to hand it to you, you got some balls.
Kane: What?
Lynch: Dealing with Retomoto... Hanging with his daughter and all, did ya bang her?
Kane: Fuck you, we all make mistakes and so what?
Lynch: Nothing,
Kane: Then just back off, I'm a little fuckin' edgy all right?
Lynch:[Over radio] Kane you see anything yet? I can't see shit.
Kane: Not much, it's pretty dark. You just keep looking.
Lynch:[Over radio] Yeah, yeah I'll keep looking.
Kane: Keep calm, Lynch.
Lynch:[Over radio] The fuck do you mean by that? I am calm.
Kane: Retomoto, I was hoping to see you in person.
Retomoto:[Over phone] Mr. Kane I don't have the patience for your blackmail.
Kane: You don't have a choice, you know I'll kill her.
Retomoto:[Over phone] I do, but if we took the time to sit down and find a solution-
Kane: I don't have time.
Retomoto:[Over phone] Kane relax, I'm aware of what happened between you and the7. I know about your daughter too.
Kane: ...I'm listening,
Lynch:[Over radio] What's going on down there?
Kane: Lynch keep quiet.
Retomoto:[Over phone] You may find it hard to trust me, but there is a way we can solve this.
Kane: What's on your mind?
Lynch:[Over radio] Don't fuckin' negotiate, just get the damn briefcase!
Retomoto:[Over phone] Kane we've done business before, I think in this case we have some common interests. We both stand to gain if we get rid of the7.
Lynch:[Over radio] I'm serious just do as I tell you and don't fuck around!
Kane: Lynch shut up!
Retomoto:[Over phone] Is there a problem?
Kane: No, no problem...
Lynch:[To Yoko over radio] Stand still you bitch!
Kane: ... Just give me a second, [To Lynch] Lynch calm the fuck down!
Lynch:[Over radio] Damn girl just won't stay still. STAY DOWN!
Kane:[Gunshot is heard over radio] LYNCH! Retomoto don't!
Kane: What happened up there?
Lynch:[Over radio] Shit I just tried to stop her.
Kane: Is she dead?
Lynch:[Over radio] Uh I don't know... I guess so. I was aiming for her legs.
Younger Brother: Sure you did. Hey don't get me wrong Kane, I'm fuckin' thrilled it turned out this way.
Kane: If you just give me a little more time. You don't have to involve my family, please they don't even know me.
Elder Brother: Kane stop, I can't listen to your pathetic excuses anymore. You failed that's all there is to it.
Kane: Carlos, help me here.
Carlos: There's nothing I can do for them.
Kane: That's a fucking lie!
Carlos: I'll see to it that they get buried somewhere nice. Goodbye old friend.
Kane: Wait you're leaving?
Carlos: We're flying to Havana tonight, it's already begun. Mute will take it from here. Your family will arrive here in an hour.
Kane: Do I get to talk to them?
Carlos: Of course you do.
Lynch: Yeah, like you can fuckin' believe that.
Younger Brother: Fucking bum![Younger Brother kicks Lynch in the face knocking him out]
Lynch: Looks like the rest are running away.
Kane: Yeah but you never know. Keep me covered. I need to talk to my daughter.
[Kane approaches his daughter and his wife's corpse]
Kane: Are you hurt? Look at me. Are you okay? It's gonna be fine. I'm sorry...
[Lynch hears something in the distance]
Lynch: Kane,
Kane:...I promise, no one will hurt you. What happened back there... I wrote you a letter.
Lynch: Kane!
Kane: What!
Lynch: Listen.
Kane:'[To Jenny] Jenny you can't stay with me. It's too dangerous. Just run!
[Jenny drives away]
Lynch: Sure that was a good idea? Sending her off like that?
Kane: I didn't have a choice did I?
Lynch: Well I don't know.
Kane: Look, I'm gonna be doing some things she shouldn't see. So you just shut up and help me carry my wife.
[Kane and Lynch have just buried Kane's wife]
Kane: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry it ended like this and I'm sorry I couldn't just die. But I swear I'll find them all before they find Jenny. I'll kill them all before they even look at her. [Kane takes out a notebook]
Lynch: What's that?
Kane: A list of dead men, just like me. Disowned and ruined by the7. They want revenge and no one else is going with me.
Lynch: I should be on that list too.
Kane: The fuck you should. You don't want revenge, you just wanna live.
Lynch: You self centered shit. I'm not letting you outta my sight until the7 and Retomoto are dead.
Kane: Well I don't know if I wanna-
Lynch: Deal with it. Listen, my wife was murdered five years ago. Back then I didn't do shit about it. I'm not gonna make the same mistake again. I wanna kill em as much as you do.
Kane: Your choice, get in. The men we need are only an hour away.
[After raiding Retomoto's board room]
Kane: I've owed you this for a long time. I pay my debts...To the penny.
[Kane gives Retomoto a facial scar like his own before slitting his throat]
Lynch: Come on, you're the one talking about keeping momentum and shit.
[In the middle of a civil war in Havana, Cuba]
Lynch: Oh fuck, oh fuck, OH FUCK! My ears are bleeding! I CAN'T TAKE ANYMORE OF THIS SHIT!
Kane: Just get on your feet! We're moving in NOW!
Lynch: NOW! You're gonna get us all killed, you idiot!
Kane: I don't give a shit! As long as we get the7!
Mercenary: Didn't expect you this soon, old timer.
Lynch: Old timer?
Kane: I know that voice. It's that motherfucker who broke my nose!
Kane: That serum I made for you helping any?
Lynch: Not really, just makes me care less.
[Kane and Lynch find Jenny in the hands of The Brothers]
Younger Brother: Kane, step back. One false move and we'll kill you.
Kane: Let her go.
Elder Brother: What's wrong with you? Look what you're putting your little girl through. And your old friend, Carlos.
Kane: Leave her alone!
Younger Brother: "Leave her alone." Do you hear that? That's Kane's favorite solution.
Elder Brother: Leave it and flee.
Lynch: [Whispering] Kane, the mine.
Younger Brother: How about you take some resposibility for once, you fucking traitor!
Kane: If you touch her I'll kill you.
Elder Brother: No you won't. You're old and slow. You're just gonna get her killed. Just like you got her brother and her mother killed.
Kane: I did not kill them! [Kane shoots Carlos' landmine, killing the Elder Brother]
[Kane has killed the Younger Brother and his men, saving Jenny]
Kane: Jenny, are you alright... Baby, let me hold you.
[Jenny sticks a gun in Kane's face]
Jenny: Get the fuck away from me, you murderer!
Kane: What. Jenny I-
Jenny: I said get the fuck away!
Kane: Jenny I'm your father!
