Death Spank At A Glance By: John McMahon

Demo Impressions By: Mark Withers

Shank previously focused only on a single player portion of the game, but now will see a co-op mode but why?

1. We think co-op would rock, and everyone is asking for it

2. We don’t want to force it into the mainstory line, as we really designed the camera, the levels, the story, and the bosses to be played by a single person

3. In order for us to do co-op properly, we should really design levels and bosses specifically to be played that way

4. Let’s surprise the fans and create a special co-op campaign! That won’t be hard to do at all! (It was really god damn hard)

So why should you  as a consumer care? Is 14.99 Worth it?
