About the Game

Jack Keane is back! And his newest adventure is even more fast-paced than ever before!

Several years after his last adventure with Dr. T, the hapless but incorrigible hero, Jack Keane returns to experience the greatest adventure of his life alongside the beautiful Amanda. However he soon realises once again that nothing goes quite as smoothly as Jack had imagined.

Shanghai, 1899 -The mysterious Chinese city is the epicentre for adventurers of all kinds. Jack Keane, too, has been attracted to the place by rumours of a legendary treasure - or to be more precise, these tales have led him right inside the walls of the notorious Shanghai prison. It is within these walls that the guardian of the treasure, a secretive shaman, has been locked up for years. Unfortunately for our hero, Jack has completely disregarded the fact that it is a lot easier to get INTO prison than out of it…

And this is only the beginning of Jack Keane's newest bizarre adventure: mysterious treasures, ruthless villains, two distractingly beautiful women and tons of clever humour await the most lovable treasure hunter to have ever sailed the seven seas in a comical tour de force around the globe. During his travels, Jack will not only meet old friends, but also encounter new faces such as the elegant city-lady Eve and the brilliant German engineer Carl.

Jack Keane 2 - The Fire Within is set to revolutionise the classic point & click adventure genre. Never has an adventure been as cinematic, fast-paced and humorous, without breaking any of the iconic point & click gameplay rules.

State of the art 3D-graphics, gripping action-sequences and the typical bizarre Jack Keanesque humour will be an absolute delight to all adventure fans.

Quite good for a family friendly game, minor bugs with the mouse click not doing anything, but otherwise it's a good game.

I honestly wanted to like this game, but it felt more like a chore to finish the game. Didn't enjoy it much. There were few nice moments, but terrible controls, bad voice acting and average story and jokes killed it for me.

I would think twice before buying the game.

Jack Keane is a common point&click adventure game with Indiana Jones wannabe story, childish humour and either obvious or outright stupid and illogical item combinations topped with extremely boring fistfights.
What's worse, this game is a typical example of 3D adventure that led to the decline of adventure games in late 90s and early 2000s. Third dimension adds nothing to the game except delays stemming from unnecessary pixel (or vertex in this case) hunts and akward controls. Sice you will probably often need to try "everyting-with-everything" to progress ahead, you will be walking a lot in JK2. Thus, bad controls in combination with unskippable player movement were a dealbreaker for me. I may had been able to finish the game if it was just a plain 2D point&click adventure.

Still, if you like childish humour or you are about 11 years old and you don't mind frequent unskippable walking between locations in adventure games, you may find Jack Keane 2 amusing for its nice and stylish graphics and light-hearted narration.

Rating: 3/10

A by far better game than the previous installment in the series. Both the puzzles and the mechanics are better and more intuitive. (I hated how the puzzles often didnt make any sense in the last game)

It's not one of my favourite point and click adventure games. I look to Lucas arts (monkey island and others) and wadjet eye games for that. There are some others as well. But if you liked Jack Keane 1 I guess Jack Keane 2 won't be too bad.

The control scheme is a bit unusual with the drag the mouse to walk or run... but it works pretty well. and you can allways use the wsad keys if you dont like dragging the mouse. Jumping mechanic is innovateing and kind of fun but really seems pointless in hindsight. All it was actually used for (where it wasn't just a pointless design choice) was a barreldodgeing puzzle which you can technically complete without dodgeing any of the barrels.

Even though Jack Keane 2: The Fire Within has some issues with its controls and features a relationship idea that isn’t fleshed out, the time you spend with Jack and his chums is no doubt enjoyable and manages to hit most of the right notes for a point-and-click game. It moves at a steady pace without interrupting the player much with mystifying puzzles, which is helped by the fact that they can be solved without having to think up inconceivable solutions. Jack Keane 2 might not be the smashing excellence in the genre that The Walking Dead was praised for last year, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give Jack Keane 2 a try if you like a bit of delightful comedy in your adventure games.
