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 revolutionize 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.

Here we have an adventure game with decent puzzles and great, well-stylized graphics, but a maybe just a little too much padding and fluff.
Enough with that, though. Can 83 people just buy it already?

While it has an okay story and some well thought out puzzles, that does not save this game from the large amount of problems it has. Poor controls, a bad translation, terrible dialogue, weak voice acting, graphic and audio bugs and visually it looks like a game from 5-10 years ago. It's difficult to recommend this even if you're a big adventure game fan like me.

Once in a lifetime, there comes a game that changes not only the face of gaming, but the very soul of all who are blessed enough to experience it. Jake Keane 2: The Fire Within is precisely such a game. While Jack Keane 1: The First Jack Keane was met with lukewarm reception and little to no fanfare, Jack Keane 2 propels the series into legendary status, potentially revolutionizingread more the art of the interactive narrative with its gripping and emotionally-charged story. There are few games that I will admit were able to make me cry, but Jack Keane 2 was indeed such a game, as it left me deeply touched and emotionally drained. Not only that but the perfect gameplay is every bit as fast and visceral as it is thoughtful and strategic. To play this game is to achieve nirvana.
I can not recommend this game highly enough. Play it and experience spiritual rebirth.
