  • Summary: Deadpool speaks: "There are a few important things I need to say before you crack into my insanely sweet game. (Oof. Here we go again.) I'm a mercenary with an accelerated healing factor. 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!)"

    Unlike Duke Nukem, Deadpool works in the 21st century thanks to some strong game mechanics and although it may not be Batman Arkham City, it does come close in terms of fun and over the top battles.

    High Moon Studios have injected just the right amount of crazy into this game and fans of the comics will latch onto it immediately. Others however, might need to prepare themselves for one of the maddest gaming experiences they’ve ever encountered.

    Deadpool is fun and crazy, you simply can’t stop laughing.

    I wouldn’t say it falls into the “it’s so bad, it’s good” camp, but like a cheesy Nic Cage movie, it sometimes hits the right comedic notes, but it just doesn’t hit them enough.

    The character is too niche for broad appeal, but if you're a fan of the comics you should have a good time. [Sept 2013, p.71]

    This game is repetitive, with boring level design and a camera which doesn’t want to work. Deadpool is a great character with a lot charisma and humour, but he tries too hard to be really funny.

    While we’ll accept that Deadpool the character is an acquired taste, this is an indisputably poor game, one whose knowing winks and quips come off not as metacommentary but as tacit apologia for its litany of specific failings.

    Although this game has flaws- oh wait, I don't care, I couldn't stop laughing, and I am having hell of a good time, so you know what? It deserves a 10/10! Expand

    This game is so freaking HILARIOUS, I love it, my only concern is that I'm half of the game in a day, and maybe about hard mode, it's so hard it's frustrating sometimes, but an overall good game, bloody, dirty mouth and funny as hell, I LOVE IT Expand

    I expected crap, I got an original masterpiece. As someone who plays almost everything that comes out, I highly recommend this game.

    Featuring 8bit, 2.5d side-scrolling and a deeply unique story. It's hilarious, well-balance, and very fun to play.

    My only warning would be that it's around the size of a Call of Duty game, which to my mind makes it quite short (around 6 hours long). Still, one of the best games of the year thus far.

    Are you a fan of Deadpool? Do you follow this current comic series? Enjoy his wit and ridiculous personality? Do you enjoy hack and slash games like God Of War? If you answered yes to these questions than this game is for you. The weapon system is extremely easy to use and the upgrade menu is well designed. It is super simple to start playing and very addicting. The best part of the game is all the one liners that Deadpool blurts out while you are disemboweling enemies. As you upgrade and buy new weapons he gets even more one liners. There are also random cut aways and genre changes through out the game. While this game is by no means original, it is a lot of fun for any fan of Deadpool, Marvel, and Videogames. Expand

    This game is obviously a very2 self aware game. It's fun from beginning to end and it offers cameos such as Wolverine, Rogue, Cable, Psylocke, and lady Death, the closest thing Wade Wilson have as a love interest in this game. The rest are all for eye candy.... sweet2 eye candy. Deadpool himself set it up to feature lots of boobies. Clever bastard!

    The story is pretty simple: Deadpool got a script for the game and he starts his adventure, which he didn't follow at all from beginning to end. Great thing about the story is that most of the time Deadpool will do something out of place like pumping a giant bouncy castle or grab a bicycle, but they all play a part in the end that helps to advance the plot. I guess you can say he's a Chekhov's Gunman laying irrelevant things that in the end plays a role in story.

    Nothing revolutionary gameplay wise. It's similar to X men Origins Wolverine but unlike that game which is only hack and slash, this game combines both hack and slash and third person shooter pretty well, which I'm surprised that it can happen as usually firearms are weaker that swords. You get a selection of 3 melee weapons, 4 ranged weapons and 4 throwable items that you can buy from the store, and each of them are fun to use. For both ranged and melee weapons, you can upgrade them if you kill enough enemies. I recommend the sword and shotgun because those are badass efficient killing machines. You can mix up melee attacks and ranged attacks to make Deadpool do some Gunkata that's awesome.

    As I said before, this game is very2 self aware of itself, and Deadpool himself talks to "Peter", apparently the developer from High moon studios when he sees something so out of place like an unfinished area that looks like an 8 bit Zelda game because Deadpool uses all the game's budget for boobs. There's even a part in game where Deadpool can slap the out of Wolverine. You can practically slap Logan forever and Deadpool will say ridiculous things like "WHY, WONT, YOU, WAKE, UP!" after each slap. It's so silly that it's great.

    I got this game for $30 on Steam instead of the stores that's apparently $50 or $80 here in Australia. Finished it in 7 hours, so the length of the game is ok, and there's plenty of easter eggs to do that I haven't even do yet. For what it is, it's a fun self aware game that'll make you laugh.

    Deadpool is a fun ride but it is a ride that is to short and does not deliver to what the trailer's made it out to be. It's worth a rent or buy the game when it's way down. Expand

    lol, look at all those developers using generic nicknames praising this and giving it a high score.

    It's one of the worst games of this
    year, the graphics are ugly and lifeless, the gameplay is outdated and extremely boring, the story is not even funny because it tries too hard to be funny, just like anything Daniel Way ever did with Deadpool. Expand
