I’ll be the first to admit that “Shank” never stood a great chance of getting a high score from me, being a side-scrolling beat ‘em up, (perhaps my least favourite genre). It is however, so repetitive that the three chapters I played through felt more like 50 hours than 50 minutes. It’s this button-mashing repetitiveness that means I might as well be playing “Streets of Rage” which is now 20 years old. “Shank” does have some redeeming features like its cartoony art style, but the lack of anything to mix up the gameplay means I have to say “don’t bother”.
My Score - 4/10
