Über das Spiel

Shank ist ein 2D-Actionspiel mit einer Mischung aus klassischem Action-Gameplay mit Side-Scrolling und stilisierten Animationen. Es ist eine blutige Rachegeschichte vor einem modernen Western-Hintergrund, erdacht von der preisgekrönten Spielautorin Marianne Krawczyk.

Shank verfügt über eine spezielle Koop-Kampagne, die lokal mit einem Freund gespielt werden kann und den Hintergrund der Rachegeschichte enthüllt. In dieser Prequel-Mission können die Spieler in die Rollen von Shank oder seinem Partner Falcone schlüpfen, mit tödlichen Team-Moves und einem Gameplay, das ganz auf Zusammenarbeit setzt.

Shank war ursprünglich ein Arcade Titel auf der Xbox 360. Dort bereits gut angekommen, wurde es auf Steam importiert. Anhand der Steuerung merkt man zwar, dass das Spiel auf einen Controller ausgerichtet ist, dennoch findet man sich nach einiger Zeit auch mit der Keyboardsteuerung zurecht. Lediglich die Einrastfunktion nervt hierbei. Einer der großen Pluspunkte ist der lokale Koop-Modus. Auch wenn dieser leider ziemlich kurz ist, hatte ich damit eine Menge Spaß. Dabei hat sich das Spiel als durchaus anspruchsvoll gestaltet. Besonders die epischen Bosskämpfe machen einen guten Eindruck. Doch durch die fairen Checkpoints und das einwandfreie Kampf bleibt es stets fair.
Das Ganze wird durch einen klasse Soundtrack und einen eigenen Stil verschärft.
Während der Spieler zu Beginn des Spiels mitten in das Geschehen hineingeworfen wird und das Ganze noch nicht wirklich nachvollziehen kann, klären sich die meisten Fragen um seine Motive und Hintergründe im Verlauf der Handlung. Einige Dinge wie um den Verbleib seiner Freundin bleiben offen, aber dafür gibt es ja den zweiten Teil. Abseits gibt es freischaltbare Concept Arts und neue Charaktere.
Obwohl Shank mit etwa fünf Stunden für einen Koop und einen Einzelspielerdurchlauf etwas kurz ist, sind die 10 Euro eine gute Investition für alle, die auf 2D Hack 'n' Slays, einen sehr launischen Kooptitel oder auf eine Menge Gewalt und einen großartigen Stil stehen.

Spaßiges Side-Scrolling-Gemetzel mit einem großen Waffenarsenal. Die Singleplayer-Kampagne ist mit ungefähr 3 Stunden Spielzeit aber leider ziemlich kurz.

Fett geile 2D Sidescroller Beat'em Up Action Plattformer Action - Die Spielzeit ist ein wenig zu kurz bemessen, als low Budgettitel oder Sale ists aber voll ok. Spiel und Plott erinnern mich an einen Trantino Streifen. Und mehr ist eigentlich auch nicht zu sagen, wer mal wieder ein nettes 2D Spiel für zwischendurch sucht, ist mit Shank wunderbar bedient, hier kann man nichts falsch machen. ACHTUNG: SPIEL MACHT NUR MIT CONTOLLER BOCK.

This game kicked some serious hiney. I had played Shank 2 years ago on my PS3 and enjoyed it, but also found myself stuck at a few parts that seemed unfair and overly difficult.
This one hit the sweet spot between fun and challenge. The action is fast and furious, controls were tight, and it”s length felt just right. Story was, for the most part, just there to push the action along. It was less corny than part 2’s story, so I guess that’s a plus.

Thought the graphics were solid, for the most part. Character animations were great, but the backgrounds were static and kind of boring. Found myself wishing there was a little more ornamentation to them, but at least they don’t distract from the constant action. Sound design was good, music was scarce but appropriate when it did rear its head.

This is an easy one to recommend to those who like their 2D beat ‘em ups frantic and violent. Goes on sale frequently, so if you’ve missed this title and are a fan of the genre, check it out. ????

Solid beat-em-up with a nice art style that doesn't outstay it's welcome. Does just enough to keep things fresh for the short duration it'll take to play through the solo campaign.

I first heard about this games years ago and I think received it as part of bundle that rhymes with Grumble. I was looking to purchase a game when I decided to just go through my library and play something that I already own, due to this Covid-19 lockdown.

This is another great game from Klei! These are the same people that made Mark of the Ninja, I think that is the name of the game.

Long story short you play Shank, who is out for revenge. Let me start by saying you will kill a lot of baddies in order to get his revenge. A lot. But the fun part is he gets a lot of different guns to and weapons to help him along the way. I thought it was just a simple button masher but there are some mechanics involved which I didn't figure out until towards the very end.

It took me around 2.5 hours to complete and there is some replay value if you are the type that like to collect outfits and what not. There is also a Co-op mode which I have not tried yet. Probably won't because I typically play games late at night and don't have too many friends on Steam.

If you want a good beat em up, correction, a good hack and slash side scrolling game with a mature tone and cool story cut scenes to put a couple of hours into, then I would recommend you check out this game.

Don't feel like I wasted 2+ hours at all will be playing Shank 2 tomorrow as I have that too. I don't remember buying it but hey that's the days and time we live in with all these bundles and sales and what not.

What is Shank ?

I love simpler and smaller games like Shank, whenver I just want to play something chill to pass the time and have some fun this is the type of game I go to, Shank is an AMAZING 2d Beat'em up game with styllistic art design and a top-notch violent and frenetic gameplay, the combat here is really satisfying, the game doesnt wait to throw at you many enemies and test your skills, while its short, I finished it in 2-3 hours, theres two campaign, a solo and a coop one, theyre separated and have their own story and levels, firstly I finished the solo campaign by myself and had tons of fun thanks to the great gameplay, then I jumped to the coop and finished it wit ha friend of mine, which took around the same time, I also loved the game's badass personality, it had a nice action, good and challenging bosses, fluid controls the type of stuff you want to play when you just want something simple and functionally effective, shank is a great pick, its a cheap choice and you can either play it by yourself or with a friend coop, now excuse me, I am going directly to the sequel now, hope its as good as the first one, Klei is a really talented studio.

This decade old 2D beat em up plays more along the lines of a 2D Devil May Cry, juggling enemies with guns and a flurry of melee attacks, its fast and responsive. Yet, the story falls flat, and the level design is nothing special, which is a shame because the gameplay is here, it really is, its near perfect and a blast to play, but after and hour or so, there really isnt that much keeping you here. Its like early Newgrounds had a baby with DMC, and they went out for tacos. 10 smackaroos is a decent asking price for the game, but if you are on the skeptic's train, get it while its on sale.

Reviewing games I played a long time ago:

Very cool art style, but extremely repetitive gameplay, the combat lacks enough depth to be fun in the long run. Fortunatly the game is extremely short so it never manages to overstay his welcome. If it was a couple of hours longer I wouldn't recomend it.

Finally I did all the achievements, what can I say about the game? The gameplay is boring, normal difficulty is too easy, hard difficulty can be very annoying. Especially the dancers and the level before the last boss, which lasts about 15 minutes without checkpoints, even after a miniboss. A very short game that has boring fights and a poor storyline.

A Mexican 2D fighting game in style.

Not much of a story, but a very solid presentation in the best traditions of Mexican cliche revenge stories as well as Tarantino level of gore and violence. Features a good local, hotseat coop campaign with its own narrative, the game also has unlockable costumes and concept art.

Good game, yet mediocre PC port.

Sadly PC keyboard controls are awkward and need to be memorized by heart. Also, one needs to have 2 keyboards and/or 1 gamepad to play or you need to use Steam Remote play. Sadly this makes it impossible to unlock the Coop achievement at the same time for both players. No online coop.
Shooting can be weird when using the keyboard against enemies not on the same height as the PC. The game right away recommends using a gamepad, but since I am a diehard keyboard user, I can confirm that this game is playable without a gamepad.
Some encounters are way too hard, but most of the time checkpoint saves are found often around so as not to become too frustrated.

Wonderful soundtrack.

Quick Description:
-Shank is a cinematic beat em up that is absolutely breath taking visually. You are a badass character straight out of Desperado that makes it look easy to throw a grenade, slam an enemy, shoot him in the face, and then slice his head off in one quick motion. It's a real shame that Shank has some tediously nonsensical platforming sections, mindlessly easy challenges, and gameplay that grows stale far too quickly.

What's Good:
-The very best part of this game is the art direction and cut scenes. Everything is hand-drawn and looks exceptional. All the animations and movement look great and feel very fluid. Explosions, fires, and blood splatter all have that cartoonish realism that is really great to look at. The cut scenes are really fun to watch and give you more context for the story.
-There are a bunch of different weapon types and all of them are really nice to look at and pack a punch. You really feel the impact as you slice and dice your way through enemies w/ chainsaws, knives, and katanas, as well as blast your way through bosses w/ handguns, shotguns, and assault rifles. You can also throw grenades and molotov cocktails and watch them die brutal deaths.
-This is a well polished beat em up and movement feels really good when fending off enemies. This is a fairly fast acting beat em up but b/c your character can respond quickly, I never had problems dealing w/ enemies from multiple sides.
-It runs well at 60 fps, I didn't encounter any bugs, and I never got stuck on surfaces. It's a really fundamentally solid game.

Could Use a Few Changes:
-The biggest problem is how easy the game is. I figured out within the first hr that you could just hit the block button and it would switch from side to side of any enemy and it made every boss an absolute cake-walk. I was barely paying attention near the end and just kept mashing block, melee attack 3-4x, rinse and repeat. I legit did this same combo for several minutes straight defeating one of the last bosses. This is a real shame b/c the presentation, movement, and fundamental mechanics are so good, but the entire experience is ruined by boring, repetitive, and insanely easy AI.
-There were several bizarre platforming sequences near the beginning and middle of the game that were both confusing and tedious that offered very little to the experience. This was the only part of the game that I found confusing, and I fell off over and over again and would eventually get past the section w/ dumb luck and persistence.
-Very short game and extremely repetitive. I would have been okay w/ a short game (3 hrs) if it was a really challenging and fun experience, but this wasn't the case. It's so simple that it takes away all the joy and fun from the game. I would have rather played a less polished game w/ a less interesting aesthetic if the game offered a more reasonable challenge. I don't expect every game to be extremely difficult, but I also don't want to be bored b/c there's no tension whatsoever.

Thoughts:
-Shank looks great and feels great for the first 45 minutes, but falls apart quickly. I can't recommend this game to anyone being that there are so many great beat em ups out there. I'm not sure if I'll give the sequel a chance, but it's possible that they are able to fix some of these problems in Shank 2.

Consensus:
-Bottom Shelf Game (Tier 5 and makes up 10% of my games). This was quite a disappointment and if you are looking for a fun beat em up, I'd recommend Mother Russia Bleeds, Wulverblade, Ninjin, or Streets of Rage 4, those are all significantly more challenging and engaging than Shank.

Thorughly, utterly bleh. The combat is alright, but clearly designed to be very deep in a way most people won't understand and will easily miss out on since the game is so short. For most players, the combat will devolve into spamming the heavy air attack w/chainsaw in the final stages of the game with no variation, and with very few enemy types that really make a difference, with the addition of some actually exacerbating the problem of the boring combat. Compare this to something like CC, which also has repetitive combat and few enemy types, but has enough charm to carry it, and unlike Shank, doesn't have a whole bunch of mechanics it asks you to master within a short time frame.

The story is alright, a parody of action and taratino films, but there also appears to be a bunch of censoring you need to fiddle around by using the classic mode in the beta options, which is indicated nowhere.

It does have a local 2 player mode however, which is nice to see in this day and age, even if it is from 2010.

4/10 Only get it if you have absolutely nothing else you want, or have a buddy to get drunk and play it with. Even then, I'd think about getting another game.

Couldn't recommend this. Very repetitive combat. Buggy traversal sections and frequent issues with getting stuck in an execution animation and unable to progress without reloading a save. I think I've spent 20 minute repetitively jumping on a skull to get an extended jump and kept dying. Then it just worked. And I'll never know if there's something I did right or wrong.

Is an ok brawler 2D with cool fights. I like the looks and flashy combat but sometimes the screens gets too crowded with enemies and you can't prioritize the ones you need to kill first. Also the use of the joystick for movements needs time to get used to, only because the dpad is assigned to the weapon rotation, said rotation also isn't perfect and usually I need to move to a clear space to switch a better weapon for the job. I liked the game, really, is one of those you play to punch a and shoot enemies without being and fps.
