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...

Shank 2 Review

GamerNode
19 February 2012
  • 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...
  • 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.

Expert Review

GameSpot
24 August 2010
  • Summary: The versatile word "shank" can be used as a verb, a noun, or, in the case of this gory beat-'em-up, the name of a man who does justice to his violent moniker. Gallons of blood pour out of your persistent enemies as you impale them with your machete, eviscerate them with your chainsaw, or just blow...
  • Pros: Eye-catching visual design, Cooperative play is entertaining, Fun boss fights in single player
  • Cons: Combat is simplistic and repetitive, Inconsistent controls, Co-op is limited to just a few levels, Cooperative boss fights are a pain

  • 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.
  • Pros: Some satisfying violence, fighting is fun for a while
  • Cons: Atrocious storyline, repetitive, doesn't try anything new,

MX vs. ATV Alive

  • 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.
  • Pros: Reflex-systeem, Zeer realistische race-ervaring
  • Cons: Geen carrière-modus meer, XP-systeem, Weinig variatie, Weinig voertuigen

  • 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.

6 September 2010
  • 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.
  • Pros: Estetiskt tilltalande, charmiga mellansekvenser, underhållande i små doser
  • Cons: För repetitivt, saknar djup, boss-striderna saknar utmaning.

28 August 2010
  • 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.
  • Pros: Flot grafik og smukke animationer. Co-op.
  • Cons: For lidt variation. Tynd historie. Forsøger for hårdt at være "voksent".
