Shank 2 launch trailer is full of ultraviolent action

A lot of fantastic games came out this week, but there's yet another one that may have slipped past your radar or you just forgot about. Extremely bloody and violent 2D side-scrolling beat 'em up Shank 2 is this week's downloadable title on PC, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. EA released a launch trailer for Shank 2, and it displays all the ultraviolent goodness you'd expect.

The improved, responsive controls and upgraded visuals are boasted while Shank stylishly beheads people, smashes faces in and throws enemies into giant saw blades. As you do, of course. The trailer also gives you a pretty good look at the all-new multiplayer survival mode. All things considered, Shank 2 is looking like a pretty great package for only $10, wouldn't you say?

Review: Shank 2

Shank 2 continues the tale of a man named Shank by providing more killing, more death, and more over-the-top gore that was a staple of the original title. At its core, however, is a side-scrolling brawler reminiscent of old...more

Preview: Shank 2 makes killing joyful

Shank 2 is a lot nastier than I was expecting. That's the good kind of nasty ... the kind that makes you think, "I am so freaking glad I did that move." Anyone who has an odd attraction to exaggerated cartoon violence should ...more

Shank's shanks are sharper than ever in Shank 2

At E3 2010, the very best meeting I took the entire trip was with the folks at Klei Entertainment. They were a small dev team with a dream who had invested everything they had into a little game about a man on a quest for rev...more

Shank returns in Shank 2, shanking very likely

Last year's Shank was a gleeful journey of violence and bad-ass-itude, wrapped in wonderful, hand-drawn animation. Realizing that gamers really liked stabbing baddies in the gut, developer Klei Entertainment is gracing us wi...more

Not a Hero's 2D cover-based shooting killed me about a dozen times

Devolver Digital had a great showing at PAX East this year. Though Hotline Miami 2 might have had the most buzz going in, not long into the show people were shouting about Not a Hero. Developed by Roll7 (of OlliOlli fame), it...more
