Shank

Shank for Windows

An oddly addictive side-scrolling 2D fighting game

Shank is a game that was clearly built by people who loved the old Streets of Rage games. The gameplay is far smoother and more fluid than the old Streets of Rage games, but the lack of impact that your hits and shots make means the fighting seems less powerful and ultimately less satisfying. The boss fights are a mere exercise in grinding down large health bars. There is a free demo for people who are interested in the game. View full description

PROS

  • Pick up different weapons as you move
  • The sound effects are cleverly chosen
  • See your enemy’s lifebar in the top right corner
  • The silly story offsets the brutal violence a little

CONS

  • It needs to be a lot longer
  • Getting the co-op working is rewarding but very difficult
  • Becomes sadly repetitive
  • You cannot improve, level up or learn new skills
