I can hardly explain how much i enjoyd this game!

It's silly, sometimes "stupid", and it has it's dreary walk from this (god damn amazing) npc to the next (god damn amazing) npc.

Hothead Games has a gem here (i have not played the earlier Deathspank games, but i'm probably going to *adding to wishlist*) the writing is amazing, somewhat nice, but amazing!

Btw, if you did not notice, i'm quite pumped up about the game, and the reason is that i just finished it after 10,5 hours spread over two days.

Okey, serious time... The writing is fantastic, the voiceacting is fantastic, this game is fantastic!

Personally, I loved this game. I got it through the humble bundle, so It only cost me about 25 cents. I spent about 10 hours playing it, and absolutley adored every second of it. It's a fun hack-and-slash style game with a lot of silly humor in it.

In case you didn't know, this is actually the third game in the series. The other two are titled "Deathspank" and "Deathspank: The Thongs of Virture." I played it without having played these other two first. While I felt left out on some jokes that featured returning characters, I still felt like I understood what was going on.

Even at full price, I would recommend this game. I would probably suggest playing the other two games first, but it isn't totally necesarry.

Overall I give this game a 8.5/10

This game plays like Diablo and Torch light... you are reading this? go back to does games. This game is not fun and it dosn't really have any tutorial on how to play or how to do things. It's lacking feedback and a generall good game play. I did not enjoy it and feelt generally confused and yes, I only played 8min, take that in consideration when you read this. 8 min, wasting my time, when I could play Diablo 3 and not waste time... directly =)

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

I enjoyed this game. The voice acting was superb and funny. Gameplay is your typical hack and slash with some rpg like elements. Highly entertaining. About 8-10 hours long.

Pro:
Voice Acting
Gameplay is decent enough. Will die a lot, but still enjoyable
Graphics a re unique and very interesting stylewise

Con:
Die a lot...if you suck...which i did :D
Could've used more variety with the music

If you liked the two previous Deathspank games do not buy this game. The original writer of the first two didn't work on this one.
The gameplay mechanics are roughly the same but the real reason to play a Deathspank game - the humor - just isn't there anymore. The game tries hard to imitate its two predecessors but falls flat in camparison.
While Deathspank and Deathspank and the Thongs of Virtue where genuinely funny and at times even clever in their own way this one almost always is childish, crude and without a trace of wit.

The difficulty curve on this game is insane. After numerous deaths and treks back to bosses to be killed again, I uninstalled.

Loved the previous games but this was crazy.

Excellent dialog, story, and charming graphics make up for what can only be described as mediocre mechanics, it's a hack and slash that will frustrate the hell out of you with collection quests and side missions that add little to the overall game and serve only as a comedy tool. The co-op feature is not much to write home about, with a number of sidekicks available with a sort of reduced functionality, no gearing for sidekicks limits this a bit and minimizes loot fights. The game itself is rescued by its pacing and story and on the whole I would recommend it at a lower than usual price. not worth the £10 tag it puts forward.

May not have the most polished gameplay, but the history and humour make it a really worthy game

This is the third of the Deathspank series. So comparison is inevitable
Art, animation, graphics are better while humor, jokes and ridiculous action are in the same spirit.
Story, gameplay and quests are looses a little but is still enjoyable.

As its predecessors its rich on loot: Many armor, weapons, potions and stuff. Many quest and many monsters to slash.
The vanquisher of the evil on probably his last mission
