    A bare-bones Diablo knock-off with embarrassing attempts at humor (i.e. collecting "chicken lips"). I've played flash games with more depth.The co-op is terrible as well. The second player is cast as an ignored mage who cannot interact with the environment.

While many Diablo-esque games place a premium on replayability (various character classes and character builds), Deathspank has an incredibly elementary leveling system and leaves very little room for customization. On first consideration, the game's length might be good for an arcade title - but for a game of this nature, it is short on content. Expand

    DeathSpank has stylish "paper cut-outs" as characters and scenery (which are especially impressive at a full HD resolution on PC), sharp dialogue, and nice music – it only needs thought-out gameplay to succeed. The game is hardly worth a second playthrough, and that's a death warrant for any aspiring Diablo clone.

    DeathSpank takes roughly 8 hours to be cleared, an excellent length for a low-budget and cheap game. It's fun and engaging and unique enough to appeal fans of hack'n'slash games with it wide variety of items and locations. DeathSpank may not have any big expectation but it is nevertheless very enjoyable and polished to be suggested to any player looking for a funny, fast adventure.

    DeathSpank is fun to play, funny to watch and it allows a second player to jump in at any time and assist by playing sparkles the incredibly camp magical elf. What's not to love?
