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 ♥♥♥.
