The move away from a mix of styles, and into a sci-fi world really hurts the game, whilst the fact that this is the 3rd Deathspank game in a year means I’ve played way too much of this game, especially as there has been no real innovation or improvements to...

  • Excerpt: When DeathSpank first arrived in Xbox Live download queues, it was a refreshing reminder that videogames can occasionally crack not-terrible jokes.

  • Excerpt: Humour is often a difficult subject to portray in a video game, but ex-head of Hothead Games Ron Gilbert has prior form in this area, including the well-loved Monkey Island games. The Baconing is in fact the third game to feature Gilbert’s comic book creation DeathSpank.

  • Excerpt: When DeathSpank released on PSN and XBLA last summer it received no shortage of praise. Headed up by legendary Monkey Island designer Ron Gilbert, that title combined the strengths of adventure games with those of hack and slash titles like Blizzard’s Diablo seies.

  • Excerpt: I am wondering whether the fact that this is the first DeathSpank game I have played is a good thing or a bad thing. Sure, I have no clue as to what may have gone on in the previous two games; but then again...
  • Pros: + Very funny, + Lots of things to do, + Co-op works well
  • Cons: Repetitive, Combat feels lackluster

  • Excerpt: Whoops! The super-powered undies DeathSpank fought so hard to find in Thongs of Virtue have created a monster. The Anti-Spank, an evil incarnation of our hero, is destroying the world we’ve saved twice.
  • Pros: + Hey, DeathSpank is back! Hack, slash, loot, laugh!
  • Cons: ? Was it really only a year ago that DeathSpank debuted?! Baconing is already the third in the series!
