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

A solid sequel that somehow falls a bit short of the original. The game looks good, and fans of the first entry in the series will probably enjoy this game as well, but it doesn't bring much new to the table. Aside from that it could have used a couple more months of polish, as some tech bugs get in the way.

Jack Keane 2: The Fire Within is the sequel to the original, though I did not play the original so I'm evaluating it on it's face.Throughout the game, you are confronted by puzzles. While most are interesting yet easy to work out, there are a few times where it takes you a minute to find all the oddly-placed pieces you need. There is also a fast and rudimentary card-based combat which is fun. Most important are the setting and characters, who are rich and entertaining. Overall it's a good action adventure/point-and-click puzzle game that will keep you playing it.

Jack Keane 2 is the sequel of the original game, settled seven years after the first adventure. Again, you will take control of Jack and Amanda, in a long journey....into your mind too! The puzzles are logical and the game is long, but the real improvment is on graphic side, that is really good for a point and click game. If you loved the first title, give this a try too.

While its well-crafted array of puzzles are fun whether or not you’re unaccustomed to games or not, its controls and technical hiccups remove the player from enjoying and immerse themselves in the game. Jack Keane might have what it takes to be your next daring adventurer, however this might not be your next go-to journey.
