About this game

Content Rating: Mature


The avenging assassin Shank returns in this violent, action-packed sequel. With those closest to ex-mob hit man Shank under attack, Shank is once again forced on the offensive. Now he must put to use his trusty arsenal of dual handguns, chainsaws, machetes, plus all-new weapons and a brand new set of moves to protect those close to him. Shank 2 expands on the original game's amazing visuals and combat system to redefine the 2D side-scrolling brawler.

You’ll likely plow through the single player campaign in roughly two hours or so, but you can get quite a bit more out of it if you choose to seek out the extras, like hidden intelligence files and bonus costumes. Overall, Shank 2 is a significant improvement over its predecessor, and one that proves there are still a few developers out there willing to learn from their mistakes.

On the whole, Shank 2 takes the best bits of the first game and builds on them. It might not last much longer than a few hours to run through but leader boards and the Survival mode should offer some replay potential and at a budget price, it’s well worth blasting through — if you can handle the action.

While I continue to respect Klei Entertainment’s art style and devotion to bloody fantasy above all else, it needs to design less frustrating levels and encounters before its games truly click for me. The upgrades in Shank 2 are a lot like the act of revenge: It feels satisfying in the short term, but in the end you’re left with the empty feeling that maybe it didn’t improve that much at all.
