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 terrible example of licensed shovelware, here it, Kick-♥♥♥ 2, the stinky king of the trash hill.

Released over a year after the second movie bombed in theaters, 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 graffiti 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.

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!!!!!???

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!

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.

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 pissed off.

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 ♥♥♥.

I got this game in a bundle with other (way more interesting) games and instead of giving the key away or let it rot somewhere I decided to give it a try despite the negative reviews, who know, it could be one of those "It's so bad it's good" games.

Turns out it wasn't, it's pure, uncut horse diarrhoea, there is literally no positive points to this game, crappy gameplay, riddled with bugs, ugly and uninspired. Even the soundtrack is mediocre.

Not worth the money(23 euro really?), seriously avoid this ''game'' Don't even buy this on a sale, the combat is slow, REALLY slow. the combos are two buttons, the voices are boring, it's one of the worst games I've ever played, Oh and after closing the game i had a problem with my screen, I had to restart my computer, Never had this issue with any ohter game before.

Vermutlich eines der schlechtesten games in steam, langsamer und langweiliger kampf, angriffskombinationen bestehen aus zwei tasten kombos selbst 3stellig soweit ich es gesehen habe, stimmen sind auch sehr langweilig und lieblos. für 23 euro is das hier eine frechheit, nichtmal für 5 euro sollte sich das jemand antun. Nach dem beenden des spiels hatte ich ein problem mit meinem monitor, und musste neustarten. >:O ~._.~
