ZeroTolerance writes: I had a love/hate relationship with the original Shank. I adored the slick visuals and visceral combat, but the difficulty really tested my old man gaming skills. Sure, it was entirely plausible to beat the game with some patience. For some, though, the excessive challenge was a major turn off in an otherwise enchanting experience. With Shank 2, the team at Klei Entertainment was wise to not stray too far from what made the original so appealing, while at the same time making some subtle, but much needed, improvements. What we end up with is a solid sequel that fans of the original should definitely not hesitate picking up.
