9 – Shank 2

That's the game that I've used to test my playstation 2 gamepad, and it worked flawless in this funny game.

Shank 2 is a sequel to a 2D side-scrolling beat ‘em up video game Shank by Klei Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. Shank 2 features a new multiplayer survival mode, updated combat mechanics, and new weapons. Shank 2 does not feature the cooperative story mode which appears in the previous installment, instead offering a two-player survival mode.

Plot

After the death of cartel leader Cesar at the end of the first game, Shank’s homeland has been engulfed by warfare as various factions attempt to take control. General Magnus has emerged victorious, and his militia now rules with an iron fist. They have overthrown the government and Magnus has declared himself President, taking over much of the cartel’s criminal activities.

The rebellion against the militia is being led by Shank’s old mentor, Elena. At the game’s opening she is kidnapped by the militia’s forces; unbeknownst to the majority of the population, Magnus is gravely ill, and he needs a heart transplant if he is to survive. He intends to take Elena’s heart, a process which will kill her. Shank must fight his way through Magnus’s army in order to rescue his mentor and once more overthrow a despot.
