    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.

    Players that enjoyed the 1st game will no doubt find Thongs of Virtue irresistible as will people new to Death Spank's humorous escapades.

    Coming in at about 16-20 hours for under twenty bucks, DeathSpank Thongs of Virtue surpasses its predecessor in every way, and though it does suffer from minor frame-rate issues in the latter sections, it is one of the most rewarding and fun-filled bits of gaming I've had, and I eagerly await the next instalment.

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

    It has no real new features in comparison with the first release, so it may dissapoint some players, but it retains the original's strenghts.

    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.

    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,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
