The Shank X360 video game, which was just released as this article/ review goes to press- August 24, 2010- has all of the action that anyone who likes that genre of game can handle, and more. Published by Electronic Arts, and developed for PC, XBLA, and PSN by Klei Entertainment, Shank X360 comes out as another sure summer hit video game. This side- scrolling action adventure game has players assuming the role of Shank, a man on a quest for vengance against an evil villian. You work your way toward your ultimate goal using the likes of handguns, shotguns (maybe to be sure you got ’em), and grenades (yup, that’ll do ”er!), along with other assorted weapons such as knives, and the like.
Having had a chance to check this game out myself, courtesy of my friends at GameTrailers, I totally concur with their user score of 9.1, and then some. Although this game does carry a rating of ‘M’ for mature audiences only, because of its gratuitous violence and gore, it does earn its very good and well- deserved score. So, why don’t you shoot down to your fave vid game store, and see why Shank X360 is a sure hit for the summer? Then, I guess I’ll see you in Shanksville.
