    There's still good fun here, and it's exceptional value for money, but perhaps hold off until the lustre of the first game has faded a smidgen, when this retread will likely appear a little less than what it is: merely a very good – if perhaps unrequested – retake.

    Appropriately many have labeled Thongs of Virtue as simply DeathSpank 1.5.
  3. Sure, the poop gags are a little wearisome, but a sprinkling of the old Gilbert magic makes it a worthwhile ride.
  4. For the perfectionists out there, there are tons of missions to accomplish and most gamers will never have to touch a fortune cookie.
  5. Having had my DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue experience so painfully truncated by the aforementioned bug, it's hard to comment fully on the game. It is possible however, to say that going by the entertaining action/RPG elements and the unparalleled humor of the game to that point, that Ron Gilbert's still "got it". Still, a bug that prevents players from finishing the game (and that as yet has no known fix) just can't be overlooked.

    The fantasy setting of the first game has been tweaked...but it's still the same crisply imagined carnage we already love. [Issue#51, p.109]

    Should we compare this DeathSpank to the former game, Thongs of Virtue may be slightly worse than the original one. However, the difference isShould we compare this DeathSpank to the former game, Thongs of Virtue may be slightly worse than the original one. However, the difference is almost nonexistent. Do not misunderstand it: this second part is truly excellent as well.

    If you have played the first game right before starting this one, maybe it will not surprise you as much as the former. But in any case, it is a highly recommendable game either you have played the original one or not. The mechanics are basically the same, though with some little changes (new fire weapons, for example) and a new world to explore.
