  • Summary: Yes, the gameplay gets repetitive. But Shank is a really enjoyable little game with a nice art design that deserves positive reviews. The length is little bit short (4-6 hours), but the coop-mode works well and invites to come back for more.

  • Summary: Another game that excels with it's unique art style, but suffers a bit with hit detection issues and a bit of repetitive game play. Still the boss battles,cartoon violence and the many unlockable costumes make the game worth it's price tag.

  • Summary: Entertaining and well worth the $14.99 price tag. The art in this game is great, like a comic book with a controller. The content is worthy of an R rating but that's part of the fun with this game.

Unique, stylish, repetitive.

Mourt, Game Informer

  • Summary: It starts off exciting and fun but somewhat off a steep difficulty curve, repetitive enemies and way-too-much health bosses diminish the experience not long after playing. In the end it relies on its style instead of its substance and thats a shame, I feel they could have done more with it.

  • Summary: I'm surprised by how mixed the reviews have been for this, its just crafted so carefully that it is a joy to play and behold. The inherent repetitive fairly simple nature of side-scrolling beat-em-ups felt like a minor niggle because each frame was a pleasure to watch.

Shank Justice Through All

illpapa, Game Informer

  • Summary: Shank has a typical story, out for revenge and ready to do it in a stylish way. The style and animation of the game go great together with the action taking place in some of the obvious but yet beautiful environments one would expect with this Mexican tale.

Looks great, gets old

ai3di, Game Informer

  • Summary: It is kinda disappointing that the game gets old really fast. I was looking forward to the game since the trailer and now, well, it still is a great game and a lot of fun. Playing with a friend is a lot of fun too, but if you don't have a friend to play with, you miss out on a different play through...

Un juego a la moda 2-D.

Protean, Ciao
5 December 2011
  • Summary: He aquí un juego de acción, un juego que a diferencia de muchos otros es en 2-D. Un juego que aunque tiene una muy buena imagen, nos puede resultar algo aburrido, al ser algo monótono: trepar por edificios y matar a enemigos.
  • Pros: Es un juego que no esta mal, que ha muchos le gusta .
  • Cons: Es un videojuego para pasar el rato, no como esos otros, en los que no querrás salir de casa .
