I liked him Better as a Pirate

  • Conclusion: I'm supposed to study a Thong olith?
  • Pros: The orphan Annie quest, which is humorously referential and also cute.
  • Cons: The tedious, difficult, and somewhat buggy Pippin Apple quest line.

DeathSpank: The Baconing Review

GameBanshee
5 March 2012
  • Conclusion: There's another elephant in the room, and that's the other DeathSpank games. I haven't played them, as I mentioned, but aside from some very minor additions (like the shield-bash, and improvements to co-op), all I've seen indicates there are basically no changes to the formula over the previous titles. I can appreciate that Hothead Games have a template to build on, and are a fairly small developer who need to make the most of what they have...

DeathSpank Review

VideoGamer.com
30 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Greetings, humble Reader. I am DeathSpank, a hero of heroes who’s come to these humble lands to obtain The Artifact, administer righteous justice and to give those in need the hero-ing of their life. Okay, so that’s just me typing, but that’s definitely how the character would open a review. The stoic, small-minded hero, with a very peculiar run, started life in 2004 as an in-joke on Ron Gilbert’s (he of Monkey Island fame) website Grumpy Gamer.

True achievements
30 November 2010
  • Conclusion: A Note on Achievements : On a difficulty scale of 1 being a handout and 10 being impossible, “DeathSpank” earns a 2 in ease of achievements and completion rate. There’s nothing here that’s terribly hard to obtain and your biggest issue will come from spending the 10 to 12 hours it takes to reach level 20 and unlock the “Mr. Tough Guy” achievement. Overall, “DeathSpank” is an easy breezy 200 points.

  • Excerpt: s hobbyists, we tend to analyze game titles in terms of advertisements, trailers, and articles prior to release day. We look for a way to determine what it is about based on the one to a few words that are meant to capture all that is contained within that bundle of code. Most of the time it is clear; however there will always be games that make no sense , an Xbox Live Arcade title that I had the opportunity to play cooperatively with Chris, my partner in crime.

  • Excerpt: Somebody on the internet suggested that Ron Gilbert made DeathSpank because he really wanted there to be a game called DeathSpank . It was possibly Ron Gilbert. Well, mission accomplished. That really should be enough for you to go buy this game, i.e. there’s a game called DeathSpank and Ron Gilbert, the creator of the Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion franchises made it. However, on the off chance it isn’t, let’s make a review!

  • Excerpt: DeathSpank is a satire of Action-RPG games like Diablo which follows the basic blueprint of Blizzard’s classic PC game while making some interesting accommodations to make the gameplay more accessible to new players. It’s an effective enough hybrid of streamlined mechanics intertwined with the dialogue trees of a point-and-click adventure game.
