GodisaGeek: "I loved watching action cartoons as a kid. You know the sort, cartoons that were pretty much half an hour of watching muscular men, or women with enormous breasts, beating the living crap out of each other. The characters in those cartoons often had super powers, and often emitted all manner of colourful wizardry while they were pulverising each other. Shank 2 heads down a similar design path to those cartoons of the 80′s and 90′s, except that it replaces the super powers with machetes (or guns, or chainsaws, etc), and does away with the dazzling light shows in favour of blood; buckets, and buckets, of blood. Shank 2 is the cartoon you always wanted to watch, but even better, you get be the muscular bad-ass. Shank 2 is an example of 2D artwork and animation dragged kicking and screaming into the HD era, but how does a genre that’s so obviously from the 80′s hold up nowadays, in the second decade of the 21st century."
