Shank 2 Review (PC)

Softpedia
9 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Shank 2 is definitely an improvement over its predecessor. Gameplay feels tight, combat is more fluid and dynamic, while boss fights are no longer cause for frustration. The game is quite challenging, even unfairly so in certain moments, but a changed strategy or loadout should help your endeavors.
  • Pros: +Fluid combat, +Easier boss battles, +Impressive graphics
  • Cons: -Still quite challenging, -No story-based co-op mode

Shank 2 Review

GameZone
15 February 2012
  • Excerpt: When we first met Shank, Klei Entertainment’s devastatingly powerful mercenary, he carved up bad guys left and right in a superb downloadable game for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.  However, the adventure left us a bit unfulfilled, with little to do once we cut the final boss to ribbons.

  • Conclusion: Editor's Note: This review originally stated that the campaign was playable cooperatively, when it is not. GameSpot regrets the error.

  • Cons: Removal of fun features from the original, Flat levels discourage platforming, Jumbled story provides little context.

  • Conclusion: I never experienced the original Shank, so I went into Shank 2 expecting some form of ultra-violent prison related experience where killing inmates and breaking out to freedom were the ultimate objectives. As it turns out, I got the ultra-violence aspect correct, but in terms of narrative, we instead have a tale of revenge with Shank, our protagonist, fighting against the evil General Magnus and his militia with the objective of rescuing the head of the orphanage in...

  • Conclusion: It’s difficult not to admire the ethic of improving on the first game and it’s even more difficult still to not admire the beautiful 2D art that developer Klei Entertainment have created – which makes it unfortunate that Shank 2 simply doesn’t do enough to build on its predecessor. If you’re after an old-school brawler it’s definitely still worth your consideration – but absolutely keep in mind that this offers frustration as well as fun.

  • Summary: Het eerste deel van dit spel verscheen in 2010. Nu, 2 jaar later, kunnen we dus aan de slag met deel 2. Het belooft opnieuw een bloederige veldslag te worden. Het spel heeft wat aanpassingen ondergaan ten opzichte van het eerste deel. Helaas pakken die niet allemaal even goed uit.
  • Pros: Lekker over de top, Multiplayer aardige toevoeging, Grafisch sterk, Nieuwe besturing komt spel ten goede
  • Cons: Ontbreken échte co-op, Korte speelduur

  • Excerpt: Жанр аркад-платформеров, похоже, переживает второй рассвет. Проработка, разнообразие и внешний вид не уступают иным крупнобюджетным проектам. В конце того года Frostbyte нас порадовали волшебным Trine 2 , а теперь KLEI Entertainment решили явить миру продолжение отличного двухмерного «beat’em up»’а – Shank 2 . И он, в противовес зимней сказке, полон жестокости, крови и оторванных конечностей.
