Review : [Deathspank] (2010) <XBOX360>

Developer : Hothead Games <feat. Ron Gilbert, Publisher EA Partners>
Release year : 2010
Price : 1200 MS points <XBOX360>

Well made as 'Diablo + Monkey Island', but not perfect.

I was not interested so much before, but 'hooked' right before release & purchased.

'Ron Gilbert' & 'Diablo + Monkey Island' could be big issue. And EA Partners published this, even MS pushed this game to be featured in main page of XBOX360 marketplace. It must be 'hyped' & 'famous', and this is fun & interesting game. Just the problem is, action time stops often.

[Diablo] might have great background story, but we can do 'whirlwind' to proceed without any thought. For [Deathspank], you must 'read' some part of dialogues / storyline, because some of them is essential to proceed. And there are some puzzles like (oldschool) adventure genre, and you must 'think' at then. Hack & Slash is full of action without rest, but you need to 'stop' very often in this game. I think that's the main reason why this game can't get over 90 of 100 score, even if this is fun & intersting game.

However if you want to buy it now, go for it. Really worth, just you must stop & think often.

Where to buy : Turn on the Console.
