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

  • Summary: Shank 2 is a game with no surprises. From the very title, one expects an over-the-top gore-fest of a game, possibly featuring an assortment of sharp implements of destruction and mayhem. And, in fact, that's exactly what we get.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Shank , much like the tool it was named after, was a quick and bloody game. There certainly were some rough edges to work out, but it was still an effective brawler in its own right.
  • Pros: Quick combo-heavy combat, Fun co-op Survival mode, Eye-catching visual style
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
