Excerpt: The point about a funny man is that he should have something to riff on in-universe. Deadpool is normally a very funny man. He's everything Marvel is well known for (in a bad way), and loves it, and the fact that he's funny has single handedly saved Marvel from a lot more complaints than it would...
Excerpt: Windows PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 Deadpool is a confusing game. It can be viewed as either a fantastic opportunity to represent virtually one of Marvel's most interesting creations of recent years, tragically let down by mechanics that are so by-the-numbers you'd be forgiven for thinking it was...
Conclusion: The Deadpool game is a decent experience. Had a bit more care and a bit more money been invested in terms of gameplay or visuals, it might have been another shining moment in terms of comic book-based games.
Pros: +Deadpool is an awesome character, +Over-the-top story, +Impressive voice acting by Nolan North
Excerpt: Things weren't looking good for Deadpool . After its initial announcement at last year's San Diego Comic-Con, Activision and High Moon Studios practically said nothing about the game. No big marketing campaigns, no media blitzes, one trailer - and we all saw how that turned out last time.
Summary: I don’t know how far through Deadpool I got. I do know I don’t much care. And it seems fairly evident the game doesn’t care either. I’ve hit a bug, the thought of replaying the level through to see if it doesn’t happen again is too much, and so we’ll call it a day.
Conclusion: Anyway, if you want a hacky-slashy title that mocks videogame and comic conventions and never takes itself seriously then Deadpool is for you. That type of game is all too rare and no matter how much I criticise the game’s individual deficiencies I felt amused all the way through (except the stealth...
Conclusion: Deadpool is a game that suffers in ways that should probably bother me a lot more than they do, but there’s no doubting that I had a good time while playing it. I was entertained. I laughed out loud on more than a few occasions.
Excerpt: Deadpool is a comedy that uses mediocre action as a means to an end. You want to play the game because Deadpool says and does funny things, but your eyes are going to glaze over when it comes time to mash your way to the next joke.
Pros: Deadpool can be very funny, good production values, lots of fun Marvel cameos
Cons: Deadpool can be very unfunny, combat is painfully mediocre
Excerpt: This game has dick jokes. Deadpool is one of those characters that comic book fans usually either love or hate. “Brash”, “certifiably-insane”, “misogynistic”, “arrogant”, and “gut-bustingly funny” are some of the terms used to describe him.
