Shank 2

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Shank 2 continues the tale of a man named Shank by providing more killing, more death, and more over-the-top gore that was a staple of the original title. At its core, however, is a side-scrolling brawler reminiscent of old arcade classics in which addictive gameplay is seasoned liberally with brutal difficulty to keep kids feeding quarters into the machines. This is no longer the age of arcades, yet punishing challenge remains a main ingredient in this type of game.

Shank 2 Review

GamerNode

  • Excerpt: Shank 2 can be described as “A sequel… with characters that… are in the game.” It can also be said that, “ Shank 2 will… remind your… mom why she despises… video games.” More memorably, critics have hailed Shank 2 as “… developed…” and scorned it for “… blood…” It must be frustrating to read dialogue so out of context, to know that whole chunks of content have been intentionally omitted, and to find “blood” the most descriptive element of an aged, repetitious entity.
  • Pros: Gut-spilling, swift combat, Beautifully brutal comic art
  • Cons: Unsatisfying co-op Survival Mode, Unjustified narrative importance

  • Conclusion: Shank isn't a bad game. It's good, but not great. It's also hard to recommend, both because some players just won't appreciate the difficulty whereas others won't appreciate the price to gameplay ratio. With no online play, replay value is a reverse skyrocket, burrowing deep into the Earth's crust.

  • Conclusion: Занудная и однообразная аркада, пытающаяся всеми силами показаться первородным грайндхаус-экшеном. Но не только это для Klei Entertainment оказалось непосильной задачей — они даже не смогли сработать просто хороший beat’em up, полностью и безоговорочно проиграв битву своих амбиций.

  • Conclusion: Grossansicht Shank ist genau das richtige Spiel für zwischendurch. Das Gameplay ist klar auf die Non­-Stop-­Action ausgelegt und trotz der recht kurzen Spielzeit, kommt beim ersten Durchlauf keine Langweile auf und man wird über die gesamte Laufzeit gut unterhalten. Zwar hätte gerade der Koop-­Modus noch üppiger ausfallen dürfen, aber wer einfach mal die Sau raus lassen möchte, ist hier genau richtig.

  • Excerpt: Shank är förbannad. Hans käresta har blivit brutalt våldtagen och mördad och han utkräver hämnd. Han går in i en bar, muckar gräl, sparkar lite arsle och kommer snart över både knivar, motorsåg och pistoler. Med det kan äventyret börja - i en ytterst blodig saga får vi följa med på ett hämndlystet revanschtåg i ren Tarantino-anda.

  • Conclusion: Shank är egentligen inte ett dåligt spel. Om man är sugen på ett lättsmällt hack n slash är detta perfekt och möjligheten att köra en exklusiv co-op-kampanj med en vän gör inte saken sämre. Spelet kan vara väldigt underhållande när man inte är på humör för att engagera sig fullständigt utan bara vill avnjuta lite estetiskt tilltalande action.
  • Pros: Estetiskt tilltalande, charmiga mellansekvenser, underhållande i små doser
  • Cons: För repetitivt, saknar djup, boss-striderna saknar utmaning.

  • Conclusion: Adoro la parola "tamarro". Invenzione verace, del Sud Italia, perfetta per descrivere quel genere di cose o persone rozze, cafone, incapaci di rispondere anche alle più banali norme sociali. Ad esempio amo dare del tamarro a quel tizio che becco sempre al semaforo che ascolta Gigi D'Agostino a un volume trascendentale. O quel tamarro che urla dalla finestra per richiamare l'attenzione di qualcuno nel cortile.
  • Pros: Fare a pezzi gli altri è sempre divertente, lo stile grafico 2D non è male
  • Cons: Ripetitivo, pessima storia e poca originalità
