The Baconing is a sequel to DeathSpank. It's a cartoony, colorful action adventure game with gruesome humor. Fart jokes agogo as Deathspank fights an army of undead cyborgs to destroy some sacred thongs.

It's absurd, it's ridiculous. It's also colorful and fun and reminds me of some fo the more twisted cartoons of my youth like Ren and Stimpy, Invader Zim and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

The Baconing is a pretty simple game at its core, but has more complex equipment and item systems than what I was expecting. On the one hand it's kind of a button masher, but some fo the mechanics are overly complex for such a game.

It might be your thing if you like hack and slash adventures with sophmoric toilet humor, but it just didn't do it for me.

Funny, and stupid at the same time. I did laugh a couple of times. Combat is a little off, and i found myself resorting to hit and run tactics a little too often. Still installed in my system thou, after having it for a long time, and still occasionally go back to try to finish it, so that says something about this game. 7/10

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!
