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.

Jack Keane 2 - The Fire Within
Pros:
-Graphics are clean and lacking in glitches
-Jack Keane with a beard looks kinda like one of the Beatles
-A few exciting set-pieces
-Contains four delicious banana recipies
-Depending on your choices, certain puzzles WILL change. Characters actually acknowledge the alternate order of actions.
-"What the hell? Where did I get this sponge?"
-Dream sequences are imaginative.

Cons:
-You often end up doing things and combining items without knowing why. This isn't always because the puzzles are overly obtuse but because the game routinly let's you START solving a later puzzle before you can FINISH it.
-You start to wonder why the dialog is so hard to hear during animated cutscenes.
-All characters share the same talking animations and there are only about five of them total. The characters also lack emotion both in face and sometimes in dialog.
-The running and jumping is HORRID. Simple puzzles are made infuriating by needing to jump on a box.
-Fisticufts are slow, tedious, and just boring.
-Since the camera tracks the current character, important items are sometimes well offscreen forcing you to run around hunting for them.

Overall: 3.5/10 Hilarious for how not-good and ALMOST good it is.

This is one of the worst adventure games i've played. Almost everything in this game is broken.
Graphics are awful. Everything looks very outdated. Animations are really bad, no facial expressions. And there's sliding/teleporting elephant in the backroung in one scene. Or maybe it's an cosmic elephant? No seriously, the graphic part of this game is very bad. Even the boobs can't save it.
Voice acting is ridiculous. There's nothing more to say about it. Sound is broken too. Soemtimes characters talk very loudly and sometimes you can't hear them.
Controls. Another area where this game fails. It's not fully point&click adventure game (how it should be and it would've been much better game) but actualy you control the characters with wasd, toggle run/walk with shift and jump(jumping is another topic) with space. So why the hell this game doesn't support a controller?
Oh yeah, jumping. Most of the time you will jump in the wrong direction, it's pain to climb somewhere because of poor jumping mechanics.
The cursor often don't work. Usually pressing the jump button helps to reset the cursor. I'm serious here, it works that way. Sometimes you just need to load the previous save.
Just stay away from this broken game!

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.

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.
