Deathspank - Review @ GameZone

by Dhruin, 2010-11-12 22:49:07

GameZone has a review of Deathspank for the PC with a score of 7.5/10:

So if the humor has its moments and the game world is charming, what about the combat? As far as hack-and-slash games go, it is somewhat shallow. There are no special skills, no attributes, and nothing beyond a strictly linear progression of armor and weapons. Then I realized that was the point. The game isn’t about particularly deep and complex combat, it is about bashing your way through a colorful variety of strange and interesting monsters so you can get to the next joke. The weapons and armor riff on the kind of equipment sets you find in other RPGs, and they are dispensed at a decent pace. The combat does actually become more involved as the game progresses, with some weapons offering a special attack and rare “runestones” enabling unique attacks when you have certain combinations of weapons. It is nothing special, but it will at least keep you on your toes between adventures.
