Deathspank be called as a action role-playing game? Daring! Simply too much missing from the core disciplines of the genre. Alone the very important character system is a bad joke. Which brings us but even with the great strength of the game: A strong sense of humor, it raises Deathspank out from the crowd.
Tons of missions, four selectable weapons, tactical combo bashing, active defense, various special attacks, a funny dude fighter. The game is very charming. it is a delicious puppet theater for Geeks.

Score: 72 / 100

When I heard Ron Gilbert was gonna make an Action RPG I was thrilled and, as it turned out, rightly so. I suppose DeathSpank can be best described as the hilarious brother of Diablo. One example for the great humor: "I once slayed a dragon!" "Really? That's amazing!" "Well, I didn't really slay it and it wasn't technically a dragon. What I meant to say is: I once kicked a cat!" My favorite quote of the game!

Took me 16 hours to completely finish it (including all achievements) and I had tons of fun!

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.

Death Spank is a comedic action RPG similar in gameplay to titles like Diablo. While the game has the traditional tropes of equipment upgrades, character skills, loads of loot and lots of button mashing, the depth and complexity of the RPG elements are scaled back to focus more attention on the comedic narrative.

Whether or not this results in a positive experience really depends on your sense of humor. Personally I found the whole game extremely fun, never frustrating and quite consistently hilarious, however I can appreciate silly “potty humor” which this game is overflowing with. There is definitely no challenge in this game once you learn the controls, and while I’ve heard some complaints about this, I feel that it was intentional (and rightfully so) in order to make the game more accessible to people not that into typical aRPG ruthlessness and instead is targeting people looking for a title filled with some great writing and comedy.

I got this game a long time ago in a bundle and after playing it through to 100% I regretted not giving it a chance sooner.

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.

Sir Faulty's Scorecard

Personal Rating: "Worth purchasing during a sale"
Traditional Rating: 6 out of 10
Genre: Action Role Playing Game

The Secret of Deathspank

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.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=351722667
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.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=351723125
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.

Conclusion

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.

This is the funniest game I've ever played. Not exaggerating. I read every line of dialogue I could find because I didn't want to miss a single joke.

If DeathSpank has anything to offer, it is charm. And orphans. It's a simple action slash RPG game that does all the heavy lifting for you. All the armor and weapons you receive upgrade automatically, and really the only effort you need to maintain your inventory is making sure you have enough space for everything. There are a lot of side-quests but mostly all of them are pretty simple and straightforward, and aren't really necessary in completing the game. This is a funny game with an outrageous plot and wacky characters, so it just wants you to sit back and have a good time. It's not trying to be more than what it is, and it knows that. I recommend playing the game on Hard if you want some sort of challenge, reading every dialogue option to get the most out of the humor in the game, and to take your time. You can get all the achievements in one play through and it's really all you need.

All in all a pretty solid game. The humor is fun if it's your type of humor (ex: She took the "fun" out of orphan). The controls are smooth and easy to use (used a controller - not sure if keyboard/mouse is as good). The overall story is decent. The teleport system could have used a bit more guidance. Big + is the achievements are easy to get -- 100% in about 10 hours of gameplay -- for people who go for achievements. I enjoyed the animation as well. Recommended.

This fusion of Diablo-esque adventuring and Sierra-style humor is like an immature adult's show that if you just tone your wits down just right, you'll enjoy every stunning-looking moment of. The lead character never misses a chance to drop a funny here or a reference there but it's not the kind that will make you choke on your food. "Well it's no Les Mis, but at least it's better than Cats"
Best experienced with XBOX Controller.

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.

Ahh Deathspank! This game is simply wonderfull!

DeathSpank, our hero for this story, is an unstopable dispencing machine of justice and awesome humour!
He his THE stereotype hero, defending the weak like orphans and defeating unfair villains like not other.

While the game is your typical hack and slash looting game, getting better gear as you go along, the mechanics of combat are solid and fun. Especially when you get special moves type weapons, which allows from stunning all surrounding foes to attacking them while spinning like tornado of blade!!

But the combat is only one aspect of the fun that is Deathspank! The best part being the humour! There is a lot of it!
From the cheesy or quite witty discussions you have with the different characters from this world to the awesome flavour text on your weapon and armour, very well written text while give you some proper intertainement.

So with the combat solid, the story interesting and the epic humour of a hero, there not much stopping you into joining DeathSpank the Vanquisher of evil in his rightous quest!

Deathspank is a cute little Diablo style action RPG that is based entirely at poking fun at RPG stereotypes. Every line of dialog, every character name, every weapon description, hell, every damn thing in the game is an attempt at some form of humor and while most of it falls flat on it's ♥♥♥ some of it will make you chuckle.

Artistically speaking the game is quite nice looking, the graphics are not great but the art style, where everything and everyone is really just a cardboard cutout, fits nicely with the theme of the game. The voice acting is pretty decent although it's hard to judge that in a game where nobody is supposed to sound serious in the first place.

Gameplay is where the game is truly lacking though. You click on an enemy to attack with weapon A and right click for weapon B. The weapons and armor is a completely linear progression and rarely require any input from you.

All in all, it's a fun little game that you will likely enjoy if you don't expect too much from it.

7/10 - Think of a shorter Diablo/Torchlight (about 10 hours playtime) with a sense of humour and you've got DeathSpank.

It's a funny game that combines humor and hack and slash rpgs with MMO like quests. I personally liked it, but I wouldn't recommand it to anyone. Go watch some gameplay footage first.

Overall: 7.5/10
8/10 with a local friend.

Great graphic style and animations for combat and weapons. Quite funny once you get into the humour, it's quite similar to Monkey Island or The Cave.
But in the heart of it lies a solid action RPG/adventure, and when you put it all together, it's a really fun game to play.
Greatly recommended! :)
