Where to start with this game.. wow it's absolutely horrible, they had some good ideas but the execution is garbage.. The combat is like a knock off of the Rocksteady Batman games... only much slower and much worse. While Batman's combat flowed this combat sees massive slowdowns, and isn't difficult at all. Even if the combat was perfect it becomes super repetitive with about 3 finishing moves. After the 500th time kicking someone in the groin, choking them or breaking their arm it gets really old.

Did I mention the combat is super slow, super slow... I'm not sure if it's some massive delay in the button inputs or if the delay is intentional to make the game easier.

I got this game for 5 dollars.... and I feel as though I paid 4.95 too much for it. I can understand the game is a licensed title but jeez did they tie up all the money in securing the license and ignore the actual gameplay? The only positives this game has going for it are the trading cards are selling for a decent amount, but still not enough to pick the game up...

save your money, save your time, and buy something that is actually worth the price.

I beat this game in less than two hours, and 20 minutes of that was on the first level.

It's a slow, dull beat-em-up where you walk up to a group of thugs, beat them up, regenerate your health, clear an obstacle (door, electric wire) and then rinse and repeat. There seems to be less than half a dozen finisher moves and each one takes a good 15 seconds or so to execute, so you might as well strike the enemy a couple of extra times instead to save yourself some time. Combat is as follows: X, Y, X, Y, X, Y. Oncoming attack? Hit B to dodge. X, Y, X, Y, X, Y. If you want to vary things up, you can try different permutations of X and Y, but it doesn't do much. There are combos you can do by hitting three attacks one after another, which momentarily stuns the enemy, but there's very little difference between them and dodging an attack breaks your combo anyway.

There's no variety in the combat at all. You're constantly fighting the same two kind of enemies, normal and big enemies. They do occasionally have weapons or a shield. You'll be fighting a big thug with a shield in one level, then in the next level a big police officer with a shield. Your moves remain the same throughout the whole game. How about letting me use that baseball bat I disarmed from an enemy? Isn't that beat'em up 101?

Around the second level I got tired of beating up countless groups of enemies, so I tried just walking past them... it worked. In fact, you can walk past about 80% of the enemies in this game. Occasionally there will be a gate you can't climb over until you clear out a group of nearby enemies, but any other type of object (electric box, ladder) you can interact with while in combat.

For some reason Kick-♥♥♥ has a Spanish accent. The voice acting is atrocious. Besides having little to no emotion, almost all of the voice actors mispronounce words (parkour = parker, goth = ghoth). Every other time you climb a ladder, for some reason Kick-♥♥♥ spouts "Damn. Why the hell am I doing this?". You'll be hearing the same taunts over and over throughout the game.

Besides the issues with clipping, invisible walls galore, the camera obstructing your view in combat, and the lack of mouth movement when characters speak, I actually like the graphic style of the game. If they had put a bit of effort into making the combat fun and varied, maybe put some things to do in the levels besides beating up on groups of thugs every 30 seconds, they might have had a decent game.

The game also screws up your system font every time you launch it. Many thanks to the German reviewer here for finding out what the game does: http://steamcommunity.com/id/unevermind/recommended/304170/

The game disables ClearType in Windows. To re-enable it, go to the Control Panel and search for "Adjust ClearType text". Check "Turn on ClearType" and hit next a few times to make your fonts normal again.

Seeing so many negative reviews, i was interested to try this out my self.

let me tell you, it's as bad as people say.

Voice acting is terrible (i don't even think the guy that voices Kick-♥♥♥ speaks fluent English, let alone has an American accent.
The gameplay itself is really rigid and awkward. you have a list of combos that are actually impossible to pull off. resulting in a swing, pause, swing, get punched in the face. Type fighting style.
The audio is terribly inbalanced. Ranging from eardrum piercingly loud music to barely audible voices. Made worse when they had people voice over this music.
Controls are, at best. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. even menu controls made me wonder why they didn't just copy every other game with sensible controls.
Crediot to the devs, the finishers are... inventive? If exteremely ridiculous and impractical.
I only managed to get to the 2nd group of thugs before i turned this off. It's an awfully designed game which i couldn't bare continuing through.

I bought a cheap bundle in order to get this game, i even regret spending that $3 on it.
Certainly wouldn't recommend unless you want to laugh at how terrible it is.
Whoever at "testmania.de" gave it 80% rating clearly didn't actually launch the game at all.

So I just finished playing through Suck-♥♥♥ 2 (lol I'm so clever).
Where do I even begin with this mess?

I suppose I should start with the positive qualities. The translation is an absolute riot. The jokes have no sense of timing or humor, and the pop-culture references cost me 10 years of my precious life. Since the movie bombed harder than a bob-omb, none of the actors bothered to do voice-work for the low-budget pile of trash game nearly a year later. Instead the developer grabbed random men and women off of the street and shoved a microphone in their face. The results are about what you'd expect.

The other positive to Kick-♥♥♥ 2 is that almost all of the fights, are completely optional! Stupid me, I actually fought quite a few of the bad-guys, thinking that there were locked doors or invisible walls that prevented me from leaving. As it turns out, I can run past everyone and complete each stage, focusing only on the tremendous voice-work and my alcoholism. It's not like there's an experience-system, unlockable moves, or even a freaking score to provide any incentive to fight. I guess the developers figured that nobody would find any fun in playing this game, so they provided a hidden technique for skipping fights. It's a shame I didn't discover it earlier.

The negatives....Wow. The things that are wrong with this game could fill the Library of Congress. First off, the only playable character is Kick-♥♥♥ himself, possibly the least likable hero in history. Hit-Girl should have been a given, but I would've settled for anyone that isn't Kick-♥♥♥, like uh...Doctor Gravity. Playing as Donald Faison(Scrubs! Clueless!) dressed as a Superhero? This game could be even worse and I'd recommend it. Hell if they brought Nic Cage's character back and made him playable, I'd consider Kick-♥♥♥ 2 the best game of 2014. Instead, we're stuck with the one guy nobody likes.

The combat rips off the Arkham series. There are a handful of basic combos, finishing moves, and counters. Also KA can shock everything around him, or even himself. Apparently these abilities damage on-screen enemies or cause KA to do more damage. I honestly can't tell the difference. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so Kick-♥♥♥ 2 is Betty White wearing the same dress that Jennifer Lopez wore at the 42nd Grammy Awards. Actually I take that back, I don't want to offend Betty by comparing her to this miserable game.

In-between each chapter are some terribly drawn still images. I have two questions: Who did they hire? & Doesn't Spain have child labor laws to prevent this from happening? It's just...really shocking. I've played Xbox Live Indie Games with better artwork. At least it's a break from playing the game, maybe I should consider this a positive...hmm..

The boss-fights are mostly just regular guys with different moves. Sometimes they forget what they're doing and just walk around so Kick-♥♥♥ can hit them. However, they can also be really cheap. Almost all of my deaths were due to boss-fights, and their hammer-toting friends that kill in 3 hits. The only other notable aspect of these fights is that they can't be skipped. Not only can you run past most of the fights in this game, but even if you die and restart the checkpoint, everyone that you killed stays dead. I'm not sure how that works but uh...hmm. Y'know this could be considered a positive as well. It means less time spent playing the game.

After reaching a combo of 5 or more hits, Kick-♥♥♥ gets the ability to knock a weapon out of an enemy's hands. Once that thug drops his bat, sword, or gun, you never have to worry about it again. No really, it's impossible for any of the other nearby criminals to pick up that weapon and use it. Also, since the hero doesn't seem averse to snapping necks and generally killing everyone he meets, it seems strange that he doesn't have the ability to pick up any guns or swords. It would make the fights go by faster and...oh right. I forgot we're just supposed to run past everything. That's how the game is meant to be played.

Aside from running down hall-ways and listening to ridiculous, badly-translated conversations, there isn't anything else to this game. Actually I take that back, there are subway cars you have to dodge, and sometimes you even cross the street. If you play Kick-♥♥♥ 2 for three hours straight you are guaranteed to get a headache. This is most likely anecdotal evidence, and could apply to every other game made, but dammit! I'm hurting here.

You probably just got this game via an indie bundle. Hopefully you haven't played it yet. Me? I bought that bundle solely for this game and Dear Lord I am paying for it. I am paying for it so goshdang hard.

BTW: Thanks Steam censors for thinking of the children. I'd hate to imagine all of the ruined childhoods due to seeing the word ♥♥♥.

Ummm... Since when is Dave an Indian with a poorly masked accent. The voice acting is TERRIBLE! Does anyone remember the original Playstation? Well, the camera angles and following are about on the level of Bubsy 3D or maybe even worse than that. The movie was pretty good, but this game is not good at all. Oh and another thing, since when is the Space key the default for clicking OK on a game. Oi! And did I mention every hit seems to be in slow motion?! I sure hope this is an early access game they are planning to fix! $24.99 is RIDICULOUS! I am depressed I paid $2.99 for this garbage!

I can't even get past the first mission because of the poor combat mechanics.
Since it's supposed to be an introduction into the game mechanics or something, I don't even want to know what's awaiting me.
I feel sorry for those who payed the full price for the game. I'm glad I got it in a bundle, otherwise I'd be seriously ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off.

I must point out I like to play a game for atleast an hour but this game... Wow!

Where do you begin on one of the worst games to date. I'll start with the wonderful level design.. Sarcasm yes! Whoever designed the totally linear map must have been blind, the voice actors must have been drugged or had a sore throat.. The writers need to return back to primary school and finally the person who made the WORST fighting mechanic on Earth needs to check their career path and definately become a farmer...

Overall, This game is a sack of Shizzle!

I don't feel bad for 1 / 10... It would have been 0 / 10 but the art style is worth a single point!

-10 / 10 ... This game retails for £18.99.. Are you Fraking serious!!!!!???

One of the worst games I have ever played here on Steam.

    This game is insanely BUGGY, like:
  • Going through walls.
  • Getting stuck in place for a while.
  • FLYING.
  • Sinking through the floor.

    Combat
  • The combat is very dull, slow-paced, and simple.
  • The enemies are faster in combat.

    Other Issue
  • You cannot tab out of the game.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. 0/10!

For whoever pays $25 for this I am deeply sorry for your loss. I got this from a bundle and I suggest you only get this game that way or under 5 bucks.

First off my question to the developers, so... you couldn't find a nerdy white guy to do the voice of the main character, oh ok.

Second, as soon as I got to the combat system, I laughed at it, then shut down the game.

I was expecting some mediocre run-of-the-mill beat em up game, but it tries to rip off the Batman Arkham games blatantly. I honestly don't expect that many people to even realize that, because it failed to show any real tutorial that let you know that you have to time your attacks between hits. And even then, it plays like garbage.

But, you know, that's okay. You can literally skip nearly every single fight in this game.

Also, Kick-♥♥♥ sounds like a foreign exchange student and Hit Girl sounds like she's in her mid-30s.

This game is so linear it would of brought a tear to the eye of Roman road builders. They still thought that arrows were needed every few steps to point you in the direction of the only one path you could follow.

there is one thing that this game does and captures well - the slightly gritty borderlands-esque cel-shaded take on comicbook look of the visuals.

that is it. the rest of it does not deserve a mention but here goes.
- story: boilerplate and boring. and kick-♥♥♥ really did not snap quite so many necks or beat faces to a pulp into the street last time i checked.
- voice acting: incredibly bad for even a game of this type and budget.
- control scheme: bad even on a gamepad with additional annoyances added on conversion to keyboard and mouse.
- fighting mechanics: unimaginative and dated even by themselves, even worse so in the day and age of batman games, sleeping dogs and other well done brawlers of the last half a decade.

recommend to skip. watch videos if you must.

NO! - simply NO.
This game is absolut crap. i don't know the superhero kick-♥♥♥ but this guy is so damn crappy as character, absolut not funny jokes and only stupid whining. the controlls are absolut s*** the game played with tastatur & mouse is not recommended and it seams there should be a controller support but why the hell is there no interface?!
The gameplay is simple stolen from the batman series but a very very bad copy. the worlddesign is stolen from champions online...
Maybe this game is only another merchendise crap game without passion to be any good.
