    Action-RPG fans will certainly have fun with this release, although it's similar to the original, and if you're into thongs and "role-playing" then this game is a win-win.

    You really do not need to know much about the original to find this one fun and enjoyable.

    This is certainly a game best enjoyed for its story, but only if you can appreciate Terry Goodkind or Monty Python as well as J.R.R. Tolkien.

    If you enjoyed DeathSpank's first adventure, the second one will be right up your alley.

    Unfortunately, the truth remains that because of its lack of remarkable or memorable gameplay and aesthetics, combined with mostly lukewarm humor, there are many more games that players will spend $15 on before even considering Deathspank.

    A perfect product for all the fans of the firts chapter: questing is sometimes too easy, cooperative is lacking depth and some polish is missing, yet it's still a ton of fun.

    Some minor improvements to the formula, but the dull combat remains an unresolved problem in this lighting fast sequel.

    Very enjoyable game with enough side quests to choke a hog. It's a great weekend waster full of humor, although at the end I came away with less memorable quotes than I did with the original, hence the score of 8 rather than 9. Still a great little game. Expand

    To put it frankly this game is a total ripoff if you bought the first one. Why is that you ask? Because this is pretty much ghe first game, same enemies,same quest, he'll half the time the very same audio clips are used to introduce things. You are literally paying for the first game all over again. Which is sad because they could have used this one to fix up the flaws of the first and really make something out of it. In the end you get a total rehash, with reduced humor. A least you can half laugh at the same jokes. Expand
