Derek Cavin writes "Although DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue is basically more of the same, it’s by no means repetitive with the exception of some of the music. The new era opens up a plethora of targets for parody, and the tweaks to the battle system’s focus keep that fresh as well. All of that is backed up by good music, visuals, and an excellent cast. The problems that the original faced haven’t been addressed, but they are few and not that big of a deal. All in all, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue is likely to live up to the expectations of fans of the original, though newcomers will also have plenty to enjoy, and is quite a solid title overall."
