Set 15 years after the end of the first game, Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2 is available to download right now from the Xbox store.
Vinnie Cannoli is back with his trademark one-liners and quips, with his shoot first, ask questions later mentality. This time he is found taking the pain to Nazis, zombies, soldiers and many, many gangsters, all whilst set against the backdrop of 1940’s Europe gripped with World War II.
Vinnie has made a shocking discovery about what really happened during the Thugtown Massacre at the end of the first game, and is now on the run as all his friends start to turn against him. Thankfully, the game features full 4-player co-op both local and online so that – unlike Vinnie – your friends can still offer you a hand.
But it’s not just more of the same as first time round and he has received a mobility upgrade over the first game, with him now featuring 360° aiming, double jumping, jump-kicking, dodge rolls and somersaults. It seems those 15 years were kind to his joints at least!
Featuring gorgeous animated cutscenes and plenty of detailed environments such as speakeasys and war-torn streets, you may find yourself staring a bit too long at the pretty visuals and end up getting shot yourself. Or you may just find yourself distracted by the stunning audio too.
