What Gamespot Users have to say about DeathSpank

  • Review Score:7.5

    With a protagonist named Deathspank, what could possibly go wrong?

    The pixelated sun slips gently behind the rolling hills as the din of animal life awakes in the darkness around him. The town's orphans have been kidnapped, an operatically inclined rider of donkeys is terrorizing local ... Read Full Review

    Known as the birth child of Diablo and the Monkey Island series, DeathSpank is all about loot, slashing things up, and comedy. If you're not a fan of Diablo-style gaming, this is not going to be your cup of tea. And if y... Read Full Review

    :) good fun

    I absolutely enjoyed this game. It looks great, lots of stuff to do in a small area, play is simple, and it's just plain fun. I actually am reminded of the old arcade classic gauntlet while playing this game. Of cour... Read Full Review

    Easily the funniest and one of the most fun downloadable games of the year.

    For a downloadable game, Deathspank is an incredibly well made adventure. Not only does it not take itself seriously, but it's something anyone can pick up and have fun with. From the person who barely plays video games ... Read Full Review

    The game is fun and hilarious even if it's a short game.

    What DeathSpank lacks in depth, it makes up for in laughs.

    Many games take themselves seriously with epic plots spanning countries, politics and saving the world from evil. DeathSpank is not one of those games. One of it's plot quests involved literally beating the crap out of d... Read Full Review

    Witty dialogue and a fun story make this game lovable and amusing.

    I found this game while browsing through the PS3 demos available. I was convinced to download it due to its name and I'm so glad I did. I loved it so much I bought it on the spot. My only real complaint about this gam... Read Full Review

    An epic adventure lined with blood and steel and bacon!
