Reviewed game: DeathSpank
Author: michael
Rating: 7/10

DeathSpank is the first game from Ron Gilberts since the acclaimed Monkey Island 1 and 2. In DeathSpank the adventure game is replaced by an RPG Diablo clone in a fantasy universe, but DeathSpank still resembles the Monkey Island feel as DeathSpank is well written and funny. The game title is also the name of the main character. DeathSpank is in his own eyes the vanguard of justice and the hero of the oppressed. DeathSpank is on the hunt looking for the mysterious “The Artifact”. Nobody really knows what the artifact can do, but DeathSpank really wants it. At the same time all of the orphans from the village have gone missing and DeathSpank wants to find them and also collect the $100.000 reward. That’s the story in a nutshell.

The gameplay is Diablo-like. You kill hordes of monsters, collect gear and do combo attacks. There’s also puzzles to be solved. Besides the main story there’s a lot of side quests that you can do at your leisure. DeathSpank is in many ways a parody of World of Warcraft and Diablo. It doesn’t take itself too serious and the humor really works. Do you want to find the “Cleaver of cleaving” or how about the “Boots of awesomeness”?

It will take around 10 hours to complete DeathSpank and the game can be difficult at times. DeathSpank is well worth its asking price.
