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.

Shank 2

  • Excerpt: Shank returns in another chainsaw wielding gore fest that fixes some minor annoyances of the original game with smoother gameplay and a smarter control layout. But, Shank 2 still has a few wrinkles to iron out with inconsistent difficulty spikes that quickly turn the fun into frustration.
  • Pros: Improved control layout, Fast-paced, gory action, Art style
  • Cons: Difficulty spikes, Slice, dice and repeat, Nonexistent story

Gory combat comes at a high cost in the uneven Shank 2.

  • 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.
