Shank and Shank 2

I just finished Shank and Shank 2. Both are pretty good games if you have an Xbox controller. Both were part of Humble Bundles, so some of you will have them. If anyone wants to try the co-op mode, let me know, we'll figure something out.

Shank is a 2D side-scrolling beat 'em up video game developed by Canadian independent studio Klei Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts in 2010. It was released on August 24 for the PlayStation 3, on August 25 for the Xbox 360, and on October 26 for Microsoft Windows. In December 2011, it was re-released as part of the collection Humble Indie Bundle 4.

The game features melee and ranged combat, as well as acrobatic gameplay. Its plot was penned by the God of War series' co-writer Marianne Krawczyk and tells the tale of the ex-hitman Shank's quest for revenge in the single-player campaign, also featuring a prequel story in the form of a cooperative multiplayer campaign for two players.

Shank received mixed reviews, but generally positive reception overall. Critics generally praised the art style of both the gameplay and cutscenes, however some critics felt the game had uneven level design and repetitive gameplay. The game was commercially successful, selling tens of thousands of copies and remaining in the top 20 Xbox Live Arcade games during September 2010. It was followed by a sequel, Shank 2, released in 2012 for the same gaming platforms as the first game.

Re: Shank

Shank 2 is especially tough. Play with controller for best results. Boss fights are unnecessarily irritating. Nearly destroyed my fingers in all boss levels.

Re: Shank

Got stuck on Shank 1 boss fight with that female boss(forgot the name :( )

Not able to defeat her no matter what I do. Any special tips?

I already have Shank 2 on Steam; but haven't downloaded it yet.
