Shank on sale, worth it?

This game loooks neat but I think is way too short isn't it? And it has very few achievements, is worth my money on sale?

Yea I am wondering as well. The IGN PC review says a few design decisions have been made for the PC version which aren't very good.

It is apparently a beautiful looking game though.

The gamespot console review says the game can be ridiculously frustrating, and I hate frustrating games.

Hold out for at least $5. Way too little content to justify $7.50 certainly not the $15 normal price.

$2.50 on Steam is another game. Welcome to a sales event, enjoy your stay. With that juvenile name and your attitude I suspect you are part of the XBAWKS generation that thinks paying $60 for Call of Durpy is acceptable so it's no surprise you think a 2-3 hour game is worth $7.50.

Oh, reported, btw.

Well, TBH I thought about buying it but meh, 6,50 now, like 3,50 next sale.

I was rooting for the game, but I didn't like the demo that much. Ok, graphics and animations are pretty good, but man, the gameplay is pretty lame.
I love indie games and platformers but man, this can't compare to SMB (get it), Braid or Winterbottom. IMO it's not wort 14 bucks, not worth 7,50 either.
It's also 6,50 euros here, so it's significantly more than 7,50#

I would get it for ~3 euros. I promised myself to spend only like 30 euros on xmas sales this year.

I love the joystiq review. Sounds like it was written by a 5 year old for their class project.

"Shank is a lot of fun because it lets you murder a lot of different people in a lot of different ways, and I think you should buy it"

Yea definitely wait until it's $5 or less. It is a fun game, when it's not frustrating.
If you've played the old school 2D brawlers on the old systems, then this is just an updated version for modern times. Including the frustrating difficulty.
It could be a little easier, I'm not all that awesome at it.
