    Don't know if anyone has got this yet.....but I gotta tell ya this game is damn fun. I love all the kill combos you can do in this game. I gotta warn ya though...the boss battles can be a bit cheap until you get to learn the patterns (think of it like those old school platformers from back in the day)

    But so far really enjoying it.

    Yes. I'll have to wait until the weekend to give it a shot. At over 2 GB, it's going to take a few hours to download for me.

    I got the demo, but I also got Motorstorm 3D Rift, so I'll hope on Shank after I get over the OMFG mandess brain explosion.

    Kinda disappointed in this. Looks great. Sounds great. Has all the trappings of greatness but it just feels off. There's very little solidity to the proceedings and that bums me out :/

    Doesn't feel worth the 1200 points. Also you can't play on a fucking stick. What madness is this? WHAT MADNESS?!

    played through the first 3-4 levels ast night. enjoyed it quite a bit! it kinda reminds of Aladdin on the mega drive for some reason.

    It's got a pretty fun combo type system that works nice and fluidly too, never before seen a combo involving a chainsaw juggle into air shotgun :)

    went through the coop story with a friend at the weekend, took us 2 1/2 hours ish. was pretty good to be honest, the bosses made good use of it being 2 player.

    also finished the main game, i enjoyed it all very much. i'd say the game played a bit like the old disney aladdin/lion king games with regards to movement and the platforming, with a sort of devil may cry in 2d fighting system going on.


    tips though, get used to using the 'evade' (hold block and push left or right) as it makes you invincible and able to dive through the guys that charge at you, even bosses.
