This is one of the worst displays of exploitation I have ever seen. There is a contest being held for "Kane & Lynch" which is beyond ridiculous. Not to mention the rules of the contest (where a female on the front page is topless) states that no skill of playing the game is needed. Oh yes, did we mention it's sponsored by Myspace and Playboy? Enough said.

Here's a few excerpts from the rules;
“Judgment will be passed on looks alone, nothing about game skills are in the requirements. "JUDGING CRITERIA: Photo Submissions will be scored in six (6) categories. Each category is worth a maximum of five (5) points:"

"The " Cyber Search Sponsored by Kane and Lynch " ("Contest") is a photo submission contest which will be hosted via and The Contest submission period begins on Wednesday, September 26, 2007 and ends at 11:59 PM Pacific Time ("PT") on Sunday, October 21, 2007 ("Submission Period"). The Sponsor of this Contest is Eidos, Interactive, Ltd. ("Sponsor"). The administrator of the Contest is IGN Entertainment, Inc. ("Administrator"). will host a portion of the Contest."

I urge you all to do the following. First read This article . Second boycott this contest, boycott this game and write the company who makes it. Tell them what you think. Be constructive but get your point across.
