How violent can a 2D game get? Very, as you may have guessed. Shank is pushing the line a bit, as the latest gameplay video shows, with chainsaw-revolver-shotgun-etc. combo attacks and blood spewing everywhere.
Despite obvious brutal attacks, however, enemies stay fully intact. Even as they scream and bleed, their limbs remain attached, and their guts stay inside. It's a magical thing.
Here, watch Shank go absolutely nuts on his adversaries.
