Best Brawler for the Gamers: Shank

Hey there Game Lovers! You must have seen loads of Brawlers out there; some very good, some pretty boring.. Well you are about to find out the best brawler to date:


Yep, its the Shank, a hardcore Brawler!

Shank is a 2D side-scrolling beat ’em up video game developed by Canadian independent studio Klei Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts in 2010. It was released on August 24 for the PlayStation 3, on August 25 for the Xbox 360, and on October 26 for Microsoft Windows whereas Shank 2 is a sequel to a 2D side-scrolling beat ’em up video game Shank. It was announced on September 27, 2011 and released on February 7, 2012 for the PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Windows, and on February 8, 2012 for the Xbox 360.

Shank (1 and 2) is a fan-favorite “2D” brawler. Shank, the ex-mob hit man is back in the action with those closest to him under attack. He is once again forced on the offensive. Now he must put his trusty arsenal of handguns, shotguns, automatic weapons, chainsaws, machetes, grenades, plus all-new weapons and moves to use in order to protect those close to him.


The Design

The Graphics in this game are stunning. It has set a new standard for comic book style visuals. The Combat style is mind blowing. You will see well heavy weapons being used, lots of blood shedding and a great action plot.

Yes! you can use multiple weapons at the same time and make very cool combos to kill multiple enemies at a time.

You get to collect different costumes as you advance the game, which makes it much cooler since you can wear them and benefit from the hidden advantages of the costumes!

OK… enough with the spoilers. You need to check out the game yourself people.

CAUTION: This game is very very addictive. I personally played the game and let me tell you, i finished Shank 1 within a few hours because i just couldn’t stop playing! 😀 and yes Shank 2 took couple of more hours.



This game has been released on multi platforms like PC, Xbox, PS. Shank 1 is also available on MAC OS and Shank 2 will be available on MAC, UNIX/LINUX soon!
