  • Summary: Deadpool's address: "There are a few important things I need to say before you crack into my insanely sweet game. (Oof. Here we go again.)

I've been described as unstable, which is just plain coo-coo. (Wait, do sane people say coo-coo?) I'm gonna battle for the safety of humans and mutants. (And even mumans.) Be prepared for just about anything. (Holla!) • I made sure to capture all my good sides, so I made my game a third-person action-shooter. (Yep, you get to look at my heinie.) • Keep a look out cuz some of my X-Men pals (Whoa, what pals?!) are making an appearance. (Hope you don't mind picking hair out of your tacos.) • I'm really good at killing, so I made it a blast stringing together combos, and totally eviscerating my enemies. (Ev-is-cer-a-ting!) • I brought my skills and a buttload of my favorite things. Katanas (check), guns (bang!) explosives (boom), duct tape (quack) and of course, yours truly - ME! (Checkmate!)"

    It's not without its flaws, but overall, Deadpool is a decent, light-hearted hack-'n-slash game.

    Deadpool proves that even the most random comic book character can have a highly entertaining video game when he is portrayed well.

    Well here's a funny game. High Moon Studios managed to perfectly capture one of Marvel's out-there characters and even though the game falls a bit short on the gameplay front - the annoying camera and the repetitive level design are the culprits - Deadpool still holds its own thanks to its truly enjoyable namesake protagonist.

    Deadpool is far from a bad game, yet the developers' over-reliance on the appeal of the source material means it rarely shoots for the stars.

    What it lacks in quality, Deadpool compensates with bragging and dick jokes.

    If you’re all for the idea of chuckling at a game that’s under budget, intentionally offensive and a bit archaic – here you go. But when you find out that same punchline includes a pitiful seven hour runtime and a 70 dollar price tag, we think it’ll probably wipe the smirk right of your face. [August 2013, p72]

    Combine those problems with the game's generally chuggy, unattractive visuals, generic-as-hell soundtrack, painfully obnoxious late-game difficulty spike, and breezily short campaign (I beat most of it in a single afternoon), and you've got yourself a game that really doesn't offer much to anyone, outside of the most dedicated fans of the Merc with the Mouth.

    Highly underrated!
    If you want to know if this game is for you, you should either
    a) like the deadpool character or
    b) like complex hack-and slash type mechanics, best comparable to those in the Batman Arkham Asyslum/City games.

    Strenghts are a very entertaining gameplay and a very funny atmosphere throughout the game. (It might be one of the funniest games I've ever played quite frankly.) The only real weakness is the repetitive nature of the game.

Lots of comedy. The comedy spans from inappropriate jokes to many fourth wall breaking moments. It makes fun of other games and itself as well. The combat is rather dull at first but gets better with due time. Dead-pool's character and the voices inside his head are all voiced by Nolan North. In my opinion this game deserves a 7.0 because it has lots of comedy and it supports Dead-pool's character because-as we all know- Dead-pool is a comedic character. But, the game gets easier as you progress and it gets kind of boring. 7.0 is my final answer. Random Reviewer, away! Expand

Yes the gameplay gets boring, the levels are repetitive, theOk right off the bat, this game is by far the funniest game I have ever played. Yes the gameplay gets boring, the levels are repetitive, the rpg elements are underdeveloped, and the story is too short. But, I have played through the entire campaign 3 times simply due to it's humor, comic book-esque art style, and over all it's fun. Sure I could only put maybe one or two hours into it at a time before I got bored, but the game was super fun and made me laugh so hard to the brink of self urination. Although Deadpools debut as a main character in a game was a rocky one, it still left me satisfied and chuckling at how well they captured the essence of the "Merc with a Mouth". I have never laughed so hard playing a game before and I've never felt so stupid playing a multiplayer mode with my friends. Overall Deadpool was an essential gaming experience for any gamer who wants to laugh themselves stupid, and hear the match made in heaven of voice acting that is Nolan North as Deadpool. Expand

    Dead pool will satisfy die-hard fans of the character but as a hack and slash game. It has a lot to be desired. The chracterision of theDead pool will satisfy die-hard fans of the character but as a hack and slash game. It has a lot to be desired. The chracterision of the titular merc with the mouth is spot-on with a ton of fourth wall breaking jokes and crude humor. Nolan North does a phenomenal job brining Dead Pool to life before the release of the 2016 film and is the definitive voice of the character much like how Steve Blum is the definitive voice for Wolverine. The game pokes fun at certain tropes in superhero comics and action games which not only works to it advantage, but also to its determent. The self-aware humor to the shallowness of the combat while funny does seem to be an excuse for shallow game design. I found myself fighting the same enemies over and over again which causes a sense of repetition and fatigue. The final level in particular gives this vibe as Deadpool himself mocks the ludicrousness of the experience.
    "Sweat Momma Its like an Orgy of Chaos and destruction" - Deadpool.

    All in all, I could only recommend it those who are massive Deadpool fans but even than I can recommend a rental at the most. It is not a bad game for any stretch of the imagination. It is clear that High Moon Studios really does care about the character and their customer base they even reduced the price due to the games short length. It is a game in short bursts but caution is advised.
