When last I left Shank, it was PAX West 2009. Six months later I got my hands on a whole new, platform-heavy level and word from Klei Entertainment's Jamie Cheng on quality versus quantity.
If you read my Shank preview from PAX 2009, you'll know that I was incredibly impressed by Klei's Spaghetti Western take on the old-school beat-em up. The controls are amazingly fluid, and the animation is easily on par with a Cartoon Network original series. None of this has changed. The style and grace is still in place, and I still long to get my hands on more Shank.
