Pros:

1. Haven't seen any yet.

Cons:

1. Sluggish combat. Kick-♥♥♥ and enemies seemingly move in slow motion. The game lists combos you can refer to, but the movements are so slow that you'll more than likely get hit before you're done executing them. Finishing moves involve drawn out animations that you'll wish you could skip just so you can move on. There is absolutely no progression. You're stuck with the same basic moves the whole game. Combat basically consists of light/heavy attacks, counter, rinse, repeat.

2. The voice acting is ATROCIOUS. It sounds like a bad Spanglish dub. I didn't realize Kick-♥♥♥ grew up in a Mexican barrio.

3. There is a game-killing bug that doesn't allow you to continue where you left off despite the save icon flashing at the bottom right hand screen. Instead, it boots you to the beginning of the level EVERY TIME.

Edit: After further playthrough, I realized that the game only saves at the beginning of each level. Lame. What modern game forces you to play a whole level without any save points?

4. No co-op, no option to play as Hit-Girl which is what everybody wants.

5. There is no exploration. Levels consist of you moving from one cluster of enemies to another till the level is mercifully over.

6. There are no unlockables. No bonus comics to collect, no alternate costumes, no art gallery, etc. Absolutely nothing to entice you to play further.

I'm about an hour in and I'm finding it hard to justify playing any longer. If it was a physical copy, it'd probably would have been flung out the window a long time ago. The game as is, is not worth more than $10 as a new release. Personally, I'd wait till it was down to $5 or lower.

If you are looking for a stinking example of licensed shovelware, here it, Kick-♥♥♥ 2, the stinky king of the trash hill.

Released years after the second movie bombed in theatres, Freedom Factory decided to grace the gaming scene with this piece of interactive entertainment, but forgoing anything that has to do with actual fun and entertainment.

Here is the ♥♥♥♥ list:

-Absolutely horrendous voice over on all the main characters, especially Kick-♥♥♥ himself who sounds like an annoying Spanish kid trying his hardest to fit in The Hamptons. I imagine the conversation that occurred at Freedom Factory went like this: Producer: "Great job on the Spanish voice over, you brought out the vigilante in you. So, can you do the English, Italian and German too?" VO: "Uh, well, you know.. Product: "Excellent, I'll schedule you for a couple more hours. Jorgeeeee! We're good on localization! Cancel the American's contract."

-Terrible script and sound bites. The writer tried their hardest to inject every possible unrelated pop-culture reference in every ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ scene.

-Uninspired level design that is on par with The Elder Scrolls: Daggerfall when it comes to visual quality and consistency. Everything is so sickeningly bland and heavily reused in the four areas the game kicks you through, that you will appreciate the few and badly illustrated comic scenes in between. I've fallen through the game's geometry 3 times at least, losing time and patience, while trying to tip-toe through the scenery.

-Slow and clunky camera controls plus the occasional forced camera angle for street fighter-style segments. The camera doesn't move with your character when elevated either.
-Terrible controls that cannot be changed on PC. That's right, you are stuck with whatever default Alt/E/Space controls they developers deemed "optimal" for your experience. They didn't even bother to provide you with a menu for that.

-Fight combos are IMPOSSIBLE to pull with keyboard controls, you absolutely need a gamepad for that. I truly believe that the developers didn't test the game with that setup.

-Music plays the same 3 oddly-misplaced tracks over and over, while the voice overs just punched more salt into my bleeding ears.

-Movement and pace throughout the entire game is absolutely slow and pointless: you run like a turtle, your fights are agonizing and running through the world presents no excitement or purpose, aside from finding some random Wi-Fi spots and graffitis to cover.

On the upside, the graphic style and main character's design were OK and fitting for the comic book style, it's a pity they did not fill the world with anything exciting or worthy of the comic book.

The entire game feels so badly and quickly manufactured that you'll feel like burning every dollar you spent on this crap. A fitting metaphor presented itself every time Kick-♥♥♥ used the stairs saying "Why the hell am I doing this, heh!" Indeed, Kick-♥♥♥, why the ♥♥♥♥ am I?

.5/5 (Lowest mark so far!)

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.
