    If you were looking for the next out of this world action-RPG, The Baconing should be your next purchase, only costing about 15$ with its amazing characters and wacky humor I found this to be one of the better Deathspank games I have played.

    The Baconing manages to stay as funny and engaging throughout the entire game.

    You can invest your money in The Baconing if you're a person, who has enjoyed previous installments of the series. But I can easily recommend it to people who are new to Deathspank. The only condition - you have to be ok with monotonous bashing of hundreds of enemies and crave some absurd humor.

    The Baconing sags limply in a puddle of its own stale grease when it should sizzle: reheated leftovers from the previous two games, liberally seasoned with humour to mask the aging ingredients, in danger of becoming inedible.

    Deathspank: The Baconing is a fun game with first class humour that gets dragged down by repetitive combat. Brilliant in small doses, though.

    If all you want to do is play more DeathSpank, then this will certainly do the trick. For me, once was apparently enough.

    It certainly feels like this game was made to hit a deadline, rather than grow the franchise. I couldn't help but think it was a money-grab title.
