Well, here's a first: a game developer who actually hates his leading men. "I think Kane is a lying traitor," says Lead Level Designer Thor Frolich of IO Interactive (Hitman). "I don't like Lynch, either. I think he's a pathetic opportunist that puts other people's lives at risk." Yet it's the disturbing history of this extremely odd couple (Kane is a troubled mercenary, while Lynch is a pill-popping psychopath) that's got us curious about the buddy game. Just don't call it that around Frolich. "I really, really hate Kane & Lynch being called a 'buddy game.' It sounds so Lethal Weapon-like, with all funny antics," he says. "Also, it isn't just about the two of them. Most of the game, you control a larger crew that follows you." In addition to covering your six, these guys will offer up their weapons and items throughout any mission. So what does Frolich think about K&L's backup? If how he feels about everything else is any indication, then not too highly....
