Despite its repetitive gameplay, Deadpool stands out with its stellar comedy writing and craziness.
Deadpool is one of those characters that people will either love or hate. There really is no in-between. The fourth-wall breaking “Merc With A Mouth” tends to spout offensive nonsense and often finds himself in completely insane situations, even for a comic book character. That’s what makes him so special, though – watching Deadpool make an ass of himself and poke fun at the sullen, stoic heroes around him (like Wolverine and Cable) will crack you up, and his juvenile nature is what makes his character memorable. High Moon Studios definitely “gets” the character, and Deadpool the game is overflowing with vulgarity, callousness and hilarity. The deranged humor (brought to life by veteran voice actor Nolan North) is what makes Deadpool worth playing, but luckily there’s a decent game underneath it all as well.
