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: For a long time there's been a discussion that game designers and producers shouldn't try too hard at writing movie scripts, simply because they aren't really writers. Some take that to heart, trying to tell their stories based around the fact that they are dealing with games. Others still try to infuse their games with the drama and feelings of movies, despite the fact that they probably should stay away from doing so. That is very much the case in Shank .
  • Pros: Some satisfying violence, fighting is fun for a while
  • Cons: Atrocious storyline, repetitive, doesn't try anything new,

MX vs. ATV Alive

Playstation Only
22 May 2011
  • Summary: Nadat ik vorig jaar het laatste deel van de MX vs. ATV-franchise met de naam Reflex mocht reviewen is het ditmaal de beurt aan de opvolger ervan. Dit keer heeft het spel de naam MX vs. ATV Alive gekregen. Met het vorige deel heb ik me prima vermaakt dus ik was erg benieuwd of Alive me net zo kan bekoren. Start your engines and let’s get dirty (van de modder natuurlijk).
  • Pros: Reflex-systeem, Zeer realistische race-ervaring
  • Cons: Geen carrière-modus meer, XP-systeem, Weinig variatie, Weinig voertuigen

  • 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: Hvor de fleste andre sværger til gigantisk opsatte storproduktioner, får jeg mange af mine bedste actionoplevelser med stadig mindre spil, der oftest har 2d-grafikken som fællesnævner. Selvfølgelig lader jeg mig også fange af enestående spil som God of War og enkelte andre, men når jeg tænker tilbage, er det i højere grad spil som Metal Slug X, Radiant Silvergun og Ruff'n'Tumble der for alvor har testet mine evner.
  • Pros: Flot grafik og smukke animationer. Co-op.
  • Cons: For lidt variation. Tynd historie. Forsøger for hårdt at være "voksent".
