Just completed the first mission.The visuals in this game are too much for a 2d platformer. They are gorgeous And, story looks darn mature. And this has lot of graphic content too. A platforming game for adults after a long time :)

This game is a bit flawed. But it sure is a very good game. Amazing presentation, hummable soundtracks, chicks with guns..b-obies..... No wonder after finding out that God of War co-creator Marianne Krawczyk penned the game, and director(of GoW) David Jaffe produced.

Just completed the game. It was challenging. And worth playing. I think game lovers should play it. It has local Co-Op too.. so, if you have a friend or a brother to give you a hand, it will be a sweet ride. And, The way the story unfolds in Co-Op is different than it is in the Single Player.

That is the MSR of shank. You should be able to run it. I think, there is some problem with your copy or installed redistributables.

Completed the SP campaign. This is the best Arcade title I have played for this year, PERIOD. Brilliant design, art work, excellent soundtrack, bad-ass character, weapons, gore, boss fights, dam! It has everything. I wish the campaign was a bit longer. BRAVO Klei Entertainment!

Now off to complete the co-op campaign. :grin:

Almost every other game I play is repetitive at some point, so I wouldn't hold it against this game. What I felt, lacked in this game, was it's length. It could seriously have been longer in terms of the SP campaign. I thought the concept and execution was brilliant. Besides, it's old school side scroller beat-em-up title, what did you expect?

It wasn't repetitive. But it kind of lacked diversity. And the makers tried real hard to keep it diverse. It is a rigidly packed Side scrolling hack 'en slash. They can only innovate/improve/implement things upto the extent the genre allows them to.

Completed the co-op campaign. The boss fights were tougher than the SP campaign bosses. This game definitely needs a sequel and I'm sure it won't stop here.

Nothing was spectacular about this game. I didn't went wow after playing this game. It's like okay I have seen this before, next.

Even some 8bit games like double dragon etc are way better IMO.
