About

Jack Keane is back! And his newest adventure is even more fast-paced than ever before!

Five years after his last adventure with Dr. T, the hapless but incorrigible hero, Jack Keane returns to experience the greatest adventure of his life alongside the beautiful Amanda. However he soon realises once again that nothing goes quite as smoothly as Jack had imagined.

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 revolutionise 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.Features

Jack Keane 2 - The Fire Within reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Unfortunately, I can't recommend the Game to anyone in good Conscience, although I really liked Part one very much. The Story and the Humour are ok, even if in my Opinion they don't even come Close to reference titles like the better LucasArts adventures or from me also the Deponia series. But I Really missed the Fun of the Game with the technical Implementation. Played on Windows 8.1, and honestly I'm glad I just made it to the End Credits. Even the Credits in the End Credits have still buckled up the Screen. You can't move the Character by simple Click, but have to hold down the Mouse button and then move the Mouse in the appropriate Direction, or control the Character with WASD in 3D through the Image. Grim Fandango and Monkey Island 4 have already shown that this is not a good Idea. And here, too, both only work very hakily, and in some Places the Figure just gets stuck. The Perspective is sometimes a Disaster, and changes so unhappily in a few Places that you have to change the Direction precisely in order not to be constantly sent back and forth between two Images. It also happened to me several times that Jack ran out of the Picture without the Perspective changing, and you had to try to get back into the Picture in The blind Flight. Throughout the Game, the same Mini-game is always drawn up from a Form of Martial Arts Duels with different Opponents. To do this, you have to learn different new Moves and apply them in the Schere-Stein-Papier-Principle. But if you get Desperate and lose, you have to start again to dazzle a hakelous Path to the Tournament Leader, start a Dialogue with him, say that you want to try again, and back into the Arena. Since not all Movements of the Opponent can be identified immediately, and you lose in some Fights already on the first successful Hit of the Opponent, this can pull quite nicely. A video cutscene is started for almost every interaction-this can be "skipped" by Pressing the space button, but this leads to a Loading Process that sometimes takes longer to have the Sequence simply passed through. In my Steam version, the Language could not be changed to German, either in the Game menu itself or through the Settings for The Game on Steam. With a Download of the German Language Files via a Link from the Forum uploaded by another Player, it was finally possible. Hardcore adventure fans, who already have everything else through, may be able to access here in 80% sale, but even that is actually still too expensive For the fact that due to the numerous Quirks simply does not want to enjoy lasting gameplay. My Opinion. I like to make good Games again with a little time lag, but in this Case I didn't have to hesitate with Uninstalling. I'm kind Of sorry for Deck13 because some Ideas and Settings weren't that bad Either, but to be a really good adventure it would have to be reworked from Scratch.
