I’ve got the attention span of a shrimp. And even that would be pretty insulting to the shrimp in question. So when I actually finish a game, that surely means something.
Find out more about my take on Deathspank, the Dispenser of Justice, a Vanquisher of Evil, and a Hero to the Downtrodden.
According to many websites, Deathspank is a combination of Diablo and Monkey Island. I guess that is correct. Although the Diablo part should be taken with a lot of salt. You start out as a ‘weak’ character, earning power-ups and better gear throughout the game.
Nothing spectacular here folks. The power-ups don’t make or break your character, because at the end of the game, you’ll have earned them all. It’s just a matter of which power-up are you going to take first. The same goes for the weapons and armor. Sure there is a nice selection to make, but in the end, it doesn’t really matter.
What makes this game so great is the funny, ridiculous, over-the-top characters and voice-over’s you come across. Not the mention the weird and funny ‘stupid’ story that unfolds as you progress into the game.
Also worth mentioning is the beautiful world to explore. Lots of different zones to visit, and weird monsters to kill. If you’re familiar with World of Warcraft, then this game will often make you chuckle.
Don’t expect a system with a lot of depth. Basically it’s a go from point A to B game, but with a lot of crazy extra’s. This game will keep you entertained for a couple of hours. Looking forward to play the sequel, Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue.
