Deathspank on 360

Deathspank Screen Shots

Deathspank is a Adventuring game available on the 360. It can be played in Thirdperson Singleplayer modes.

Deathspank is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.

Deathspank can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.

Deathspank can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Deathspank XBLA blends loot-whoring and humour as Diablo meets Monkey Island. The fusion is very close but ultimately diminishes each aspect. Staid combat and lengthy campaigns were too much for the humour to carry alone.

Despite their appearance, Dungeon crawlers and loot collecting games have a very distinct soul. The elements that go into making such addictive game mechanics are elegant and creative - needing to create a craving for the best equipment and a combat engine that feels satisfying.

Scared Gamer review Fri, 10 Sep 2010

Deathspank's magpie looting charmed its way past my funny bone. Although often overly precocious, in the end it was too likeable to leave alone.

I've always been slightly suspicious of comedy. Not just because clowns make me uneasy, but because it's such a personal thing. Like fear, what really gets one person going will leave another cold.
