Love this game, it's got improved combat over the predecessor, it's fast paced, well, more chaotic, the graphics are smooth - it's generally just a lot of fun.

Until you get to the bosses. They're just frustrating beyond belief, especially on hard.

Some of them take ages, and a single mistake will often lead to you dying and starting again and they're just more frustrating than fun.

Did anyone really enjoy the cyclops fight? Or the mad doc?

...yeah...liars...lol

Bosses are hard in some games....yep. ever play prinny can i really be the hero? Or ninja gaiden, those games have hard bosses. Shank 2 isnt as bad. You just have to get the mechanics down.

Take your time, die a lot and learn from it. Youll eventually get so good at it you forget it was hard.

I don't know what you are talking about, shank 1 on normal is harder then shank 2 on hard.

You can hide in the corners and shoot the bosses in this one to kill them.

I thought Shank 2 as a whole was frustrating to play. I had more problems with large numbers of various grunts then bosses. I rarely died in bossfights.

Enemy waves are larger in one then they are in 2.

If you are new to the series though, in general it is a hard game.

I agree with you.  But I find the whole game frustrating.  I don't know if I will finish it.

What exactly are you stuck on i can see if i can give you tips? Also if you haven't beat teh game in normal first you should do that before tackling hard.

I think there might be one when you get near a staircase, where you kinda go back and forth, i didn't die after taht checkpoint so i don't know if there are any others.

The first Shank on hard mode was a HUGE PAIN when you got to the rockets raining down from the sky (after that the game was a lot easier) I did get tripped up on the last level a few times though.
