Our videos of Deadpool

Deadpool is a very strange title. In terms of gameplay mechanics, it is very similar to the Spider-Man games which have been released in the past few years, however it was developed by High Moon Studios, the makers of the - good - Transformers games. The main problem here is that everything is so generic that you never feel like you're playing something new or particularly interesting. Combat is pretty basic and button mashing is efficient most of the time, the gunplay and the camera system are awkward and the platforming sequences are clearly not the game's strongest suit. What's left then? Well, all the main's character crazy humor - which includes a lot of references to pee, poo, cocks and boobies - and Nolan north's impressive performance. This is clearly a game you'll play just to hear the next joke and we're not sure it's enough to make it worth your while. The masked antihero deserved better than a mediocre game, but there is still fun to be found here and for the fans, that's definitely something.

About the game


What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: question is, is it terrible enough to be entertaining? I havent played enough to know yet, but the story so far is total shite. For sure :) (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But there's just no explanation for: "At some point soon, we better get busy making babies." This is simply just really terrible writing. (7 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts These 2 posts explain a little what most likely happened: [url] / [url] (7 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks They were probably pressured to make it honestly (8 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @Sdarts: I know, it's too much. I think I'm starting to understand why some of key people at Bioware left. They saw a shitstorm comin and they jumped ship. (8 Hours ago)

    Sdarts ME:A is a disgrace and disrespect to the ME franchise and everyone that worked on the first 3 games, and everyone that was/is a ME fan. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But the really, truly worst part is the writing and dialogue. I'm no writer, not even an aspiring to be one, and I'm very confident I wouldn't write this badly. (8 Hours ago)
