GameArena: Don't let the fact that it's an animated title fool you. Shank is as blood-soaked and down and dirty as you can get. Surprisingly, you play the role of stab-tastic lead, Shank in this classic tale of revenge. It's been five years since his former brother in arms killed his beloved and left him for dead at the behest of kingpin Cesar, and now it's time for some payback! Gameplay is very straightforward, with some simplified platforming, bosses and mini-bosses breaking up the hordes of typecast goons you'll slaughter by the hundreds.
