Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The fan-favorite 2D brawler is back as ex-mob hit man Shank returns to action in Shank 2. With those closest to him under attack, Shank is once again forced on the offensive. Now he must put his trusty arsenal of handguns, shotguns, automatic weapons, chainsaws, machetes, grenades, plus all-new weaponry and moves to use in order to protect those close to him. The original game set a new standard for its visual style and Shank 2 raises the bar. Shank 2 expands on the original game's amazing combat system to redefine the 2D side-scrolling brawler.

  • Multi-Weapon Combat System - With a brand new redesigned weapon system, take on smarter and greater variety of goons and bigger, badder bosses with new weapon combos and new counter moves that let you use enemies’ weapons against them!
  • It Takes More than One to Survive - Team up with a friend to put a thrashing on hordes of goons in this all-new and incredibly fun arcade-style co-op survival mode. Teamwork is essential to surviving waves of increasing tenacious enemies!
  • Rich Environments - Look for opportunities to bring down ceilings, explode barrels, hurl crates, and explore surroundings to find new in-game unlockables!
  • Stunning Visuals - Shank 2 draws you into the action with a stunning visual style that sets a new benchmark in 2D brawlers.

My bias:

Loves: Bloody video games
Likes: Zombie/Horde modes
Dislikes: 2D games
Hates: Short games

I had never played the first Shank, so this is coming from a fresh perspective. I don't know what issues the original had, but this one really doesn't have any.

This is a typical 2D shooter (think Contra), but it's ultra bloody and surprisingly deep. There are six or seven single player levels and the boss fights are pretty difficult and very fun. However, this game shines in the multi-player.

The multi-player is basically your typical 'horde' mode...buy items to help with different rounds of different types of enemies...but it's really deep (unlockable characters galore) and with a friend is a blast. Choose your character based on their strengths and weaknesses and go nuts. I could spend hours with this type of game.

Score: 5 stars.

I was about ready to pre-order the first Shank, when I spotted their copy protection software. I'm not a big fan of things that punish paying customers while doing little to stop pirates, so I passed. From the reviews I've read it turned out to be just as well because while the game looked interesting controls were little sloppy. However, Shank 2 aims to fix that. Finishing the game on the PC, it seems they have.

The story is rather weak, but basically your this psycho guy with knives, guns, grenades, etc. those on a massive killing spree to rescue the woman who raised him. You also one level in the game with the new female character who is arguably more fun to play. If you played the old streets of rage games or double Dragon on the 16-bit systems, you have a general idea what this game is. It's sort of an update to the old-fashioned brawler. Yes it includes a fair number of nubile female characters to attack you, including Amazons, naughty nurses, and one female boss. However, there's nothing over the top sexually that would be bad for a kid. The violence, well any parent should know that's there going in.

I think the game was meant to be played with a controller. You can play with a mouse and keyboard and I finished the game with it, but there a lot of times when you're good and be uttering a fair number of swear words because he attacked the wrong direction due to your mouse position. Other than that, the game is extremely short. Each level can be finishing around 30 to 45 min. and with only eight levels you can do the math. Part of that, you shouldn't penalize the game for. If you die it is very forgiving with checkpoints, though you do lose score, but it lets you finish the game instead of being forced to replay over and over again. That's a good thing.
