Summary: For what it is, I would say that this game is not too shabby for a side-scrolling beat-'em-up/shooter. That being said, it also has many of the issues that are commonly found in this genre; shoddy hit detection at times and the inability to entertain for long periods of time. The main issue that really ruined this game from being better for me was the fact that the framerate is guaranteed to drop every couple fights.
Summary: How did they f* this up? The first game was almost perfect. The changes to the gameplay are for the worst. The co-op from the first is gone. The first one had a compelling story, this one does not. The bosses aren't even fun anymore!
Summary: It felt to me that while trying hard to step it up and out do the first Shank they ended up destroying the feel that I liked about the first game. I felt like instead of playing I new generation game in a classic style that I actually literally stepped back a few generations and was playing a classic game again. I do not feel the scheme needed to be changed so dramatically. They had the feel right before.
Summary: Viciously difficult, but immensely satisfying. A Devil May Cry in 2D, Shank is anything but brainless action, requiring you to carefully swap between weapons to chain together the lengthy and effective combos needed to slay the game's most persistent enemies. A silly turret section later on proved immensely frustrating, but aside from that, this is a gold standard 2D beat 'em up.
Summary: Haven't played the first one, this is a fresh experience for me. I usually don't expect much from downloadable non-expensive games; I know they'll be short and the graphics won't probably measure up to those blockbusters out there. But the gameplay has to be solid and very well balanced. It has to be fun and complete. Shank 2 doesn't disappoint at ALL. It's fast, fun and looks awesome.
Summary: awesome game,just to bad the game aint that long.. The multiplayer aint that special but the single campaign is just great nice graphics,cool moves excellent counterattacks & finishmoves beautifull backgrounds & enough variation in enemies.. did i mention you play some parts of the game also as a woman that loves to swing around here scythe ?
Summary: This was the first game of this type of genre that i have and it was a great introduction to the genre for me. The only problems with the game that i had was the i played it on the pc, and to me, the controls felt a little clunky, but this problem can be easily ignored by simply using a gameingpad.Shank2 was a fast flowing game that had stunning visuals, the types of enemy where numerous and introduced to the player though out the game meaning that it didn't get boring...
Summary: Pros- The Graphics are fantastic, the game mechanics have been slightly adjusted for the better , and the story is great, and the co-op is good. Cons- Story mode could have been longer, Falling to your death is silly and aggravating, and the lack of weapons compared to the first Shank was underwhelming.
