Info over het spel

DeathSpank is, al ontelbaar jaren lang, een baken van gerechtigheid, een overwinnaar van het kwade en een held die opkomt voor de Downtrodden. DeathSpank heeft lang gezocht naar een artefact genaamd... de Artifact. Ergens in een ver verleden gesmeed door een onbekende met niet bekende doeleinden, is de Artifact nu binnen het bereik van DeathSpank. Wat is de Artifact?

Hoofdkenmerken :
  • De epische humor van Ron Gilbert - Ron Gilbert brengt zijn kenmerkende geestige humor en belachelijke dialogen naar een geheel nieuw niveau in een van de indrukwekkendste verhalen ooit verteld over een held en zijn zoektocht naar het Artefact.
  • Lokale "hulpjes" co-op voor twee spelers – Vind een vriend om aan jouw zijde te vechten als je heldhaftige hulpje en werk je samen een weg door helse kerkers en mysterieuze landen. Er is een tweede controller nodig om met twee spelers co-op te kunnen spelen.
  • Ontdek een immens grote wereld – De wereld van DeathSpank is immens en bomvol met unieke en hilarische personages, gevaarlijke vijanden, verschillende landschappen en kippen... heel veel kippen.
  • Vind en verzamel honderden wapens, unieke voorwerpen en delen van je wapenuitrusting – Verzamel honderden wapens, stukken wapenuitrusting en unieke voorwerpen (heb je ooit eenhoornpoep verzameld, of gebruikgemaakt van een kippenlanceerraket?) gedurende je heldhaftige tocht en gebruik ze om de vaardigheden van jouw personage en je inventaris aan te passen.

Genre: Action Role Playing Game

Ron Gilbert is probably best know for being one of the creators (the others being Tim Shafer and Dave Grossman) of the successful Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island series that was wildly popular in the late eighties and early nineties when adventure gaming was king. Both titles combined humor to great effect with the Monkey Island characters being particularly self-aware that they were computer gaming characters.

In an attempt to re-create the success of Guybrush Threepwood (Monkey Islands main lovable but bumbling buffoon of a wanna-be-pirate hero) we now have Deathspank (another bumbling buffoon of an idiot wanna-be-hero). Swapping out Shafer, the Caribbean and adventure gaming in general, Deathspank introduces us to its titular character and fantasy setting with a combat heavy action role playing focus. But does Deathspank have what it takes to enjoy the same sort of longevity as Guybrush Threepwood?

Unfortunately not. Whilst the game may illicit the odd smile here and there, as a character he is missing the charm that accompanied Guybrush on all of his adventures. With a forced script, the gags don't really tend to flow very well most of the time and Deathspank eventually ends up being more of an irritation than anything else. WIth a stupid and idiotic quip for almost everything you do in game be prepared to have some bad comedy laid down thick and fast throughout your playthrough.

Deathspank is nothing more than a Diablo clone except this time it's dressed up as the court jester. As far as the game goes the gameplay is pretty solid and engaging if it were not for the idiot of a hero unable to shut his trap for a single second. The store page lists the epic humor of Ron Gilbert as one of its main key selling points but to be honest I was totally underwhelmed by this attempt at so called humor. I have gotten more laughs from just staring at a lemon going off in a fruit basket.

Graphically the game looks quite unique with the entire world made to look like card board cut outs and it lasts roughly 10-14hrs hours which is just about right when looking at the games asking price.

Whilst I am a huge fan of Guybrush Threepwood and the Monkey Island series, I definitely am not as ardent a Deathspank fan. Fun in short little bursts and thankfully over quickly I wouldn't recommend paying full price for the title but wait for a sale instead.

A really great and fun game. Not a very long game (~10 hours approx) but if you like Ron Gilbert's jokes, looting, and fighting against really crazy enemies, this is your game. If you miss laughing with a game, get this one because you will do that during the entire game.

Totally worth the price!

You play as Deathspank, a Dispenser of Justice, a Vanquisher of Evil, and a Hero to the Downtrodden, on your journey to get your hands on the "artifact"
Battle through demons, orcs, chickens, leprechauns and many more while completing your quests and filling your bag with awesome loot.

The gameplay mechanics are quite basic, but nevertheless fun.
The dialogues are really funny, i enjoyed the voices and had to laugh each time the main hero introduces himself by saying "My name is Deathspank!"

The game is about 7-10 hours long (took me 8h), which is not too bad for that price IMO.

7/10

Fun and lighthearted game with quirky graphics and an absurd but hilarious storyline. Easy to get the hang of and great for casual gaming. Short but sweet.

"I am DeathSpank - Dispenser of Justice, Vanquisher of Evil, Hero to the Downtrodden"

Fun and entertaining game, think about a mix of Diablo / Torchlight with some "outhouse" humour blended into one game.

Greetings gamer wench! Or should I just call you Tina? I am DEATHSPANK, vanquisher of evil, dispenser of justice and a hero to the downtrodden. Review this game you say? Who needs reviews when we can have disco night? I, DEATHSPANK slay my enemies with impeccable grace while also looking good in purple (no actual chickens were harmed in the duration of this game). My goal is to find THE ARTIFACT, which I need, because of reasons, while my source of power comes from a special thong as well as a finely maintained dental line. But the most important thing of all is that where DEATHSPANK is involved, justice is served just like my tea: with two sugars, a little lemon, and a splash of milk.
