Tied together by the Hack'n'Slash approach, The Baconing is a must play for all RPG enthusiasts and DeathSpank followers.

A very fun and sattire saturated game. This is basically a mix between a hack&slash and adventure game (not point&click, rather Rayman type).

The main point of this game is an absurd storyline that is too wacky to describe here. Go and play it, you won't be disappointed if you like Monty Python like humor.

Pros:
- very nice gameplay, I just wanted to complete this game to see how it ends
- parodies many tropes, movies and games
- graphics are cartoony which supports the overall tone of the game

Cons:
- it gets too easy to early - basically you have loads of bombs, medkits or other support items that you can use anytime
- some riddles are just too wacky
- later in the game there is one stage with lots of backtracking - fortunately it's not too long

I really recommend this game, it's fast, it's fun and you can have a good laugh when playing it.

One hint - don't buy DLC if you just play singleplayer, because it's just a different character for the second player and that's all it is in this Roesha DLC.

Ahhh, DeathSpank! The final game in the trilogy. Like some action RPG's? Like Diablo games? This game is for you. Absolutely fantastic dialog. Funny stuff. I've completed all 3 games and still wanting more. Very fast paced and can be unforgiving at times with it's long range enemy projectiles, but damn worth it. Come.. stay awhile.. and enjoy THE BACONING!

Being a fan of the first two deathspank games, I've always had an urge to purchase The Baconing when it came out on the xbox 360. After seeing many negative reviews on the game, i decided to hold off. Playing the game now on pc, i don't see what the whole fuss was about. This is the same tried and true deathspank formula packaged in a new adventure. The only concern was the difficulty of the game. I died many MANY more times in this game then i did in the first two combined. This game is a little bit more linear when it comes to paths to take, but this may be a positive or a negative to some. Game length was fair, seeing how this was a 15 dollar arcade game. I believe i beat the game in about 8 or 9 hours, and this is attempting every quest and collecting everything possible. If your a deathspank fan i would recommend this game to you in a heartbeat. Do not let the negative reviews sway you.
