DeathSpank Review: GoozerNation

Every RPG has a hero. They can be courageous, adventurous, moody and ridiculously good looking, but for the most part, the hero is always willing to do the bidding of others. DeathSpank does all of this at the same time in this satirical action RPG from the creator of Monkey Island, which packs epic loot drops and a naive, well-meaning protagonist, who shares the game's title as a name. Still, our DeathSpank turns out to be more of an errand boy than a hero. And it seems like everyone in DeathSpank's realm has a problem. DeathSpank's main goal is finding a mysterious object called, "The Artifact." On your journey, you fight the world's various enemies and loot to find better equipment. This inevitably becomes grinding and involves much effort to level up.

I better pick this up before I'm tempted to waste all my spare money on the Summer of Arcade titles. Great review, btw!

Loved the demo. Good to see something unique come to PSN/XBLA. So I when out and got a $50 PSN card. (since I've been playing Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time, I figured ill scoop up Quest for Booty too. And being a PS+ member, having money in my wallet is good for those surprise 50% of sales.)

Off Topic: Oddworld is back, so download them off PSN and brush up for the next chapter in the Quintology, coming soo!

Limbo is coming too. I hear it's redonkulously short. But it looks eerie and awesome.

Yeah, this one sounds very interesting.

Is this appropriate for kids? I have an 11 year old who is really into rpg's, but I don't like him to play things that are super-violent.

eaglethorn3020d ago

There is blood and bit of violence. I believe the dialog would be a bit inappropriate depending on your parenting standards. But don't pass it up for yourself then you can decide whether to let your child play it. My short opinion is just say no for him.

Looks like a good PSN game, if only I could get away from my disc games.

I too had to stop and add to the backlog of games. But this game makes for the a great break of all the popular titles out there right now.

It's addictive. I played the demo and I knew I had to get this game!! It's just fun I have not seen too much in the game that is adult content so far... except for the violence. You kill chickens lol and spiders these troll looking doodes called Greems. It's about as violent as Fat Princess imo...(so far). Other than that,you've got to play this game. I played like 4 hours straight it's fun exploring the map. Nice review mayne.

The graphics are like a mix between Fat Princess and Castle Crashers. I've played it for 6 hours now and I've only explored 1/4 of the world map. It's one of the best downloadable games I've ever played. The level design, dialogue and gameplay are so well produced. It reminds me a little of the Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance games but with a different setting, and in many ways a better game.
