New Game Network writes: "DeathSpank is EA's newest Xbox Live adventure, featuring the heroic hero Death Spank, who will be making a return in the upcoming sci-fi sequel next year. DeathSpank is a simple Fantasy RPG with an interesting art style and loads of funny writing. The fantasy setting is one big joke, nabbing from well known magical locales like the enchanted forest and wizard’s tower. The gameplay is simple hack n’ slash where our hero slashes and hacks his way through quest after quest. DeathSpank was created by HotBox, the same studio that did the Penny Arcade games, and their writing ability stays strong even if it’s often really cliche. "
