    The Baconning is a Deathspank game. Things haven't degraded or improved much at all. I LOVE these games they filled to the brim with stupid nonsense that makes me laugh. Their influence lightens the garbage in my head and makes me happier for weeks. The gameplay is OK hack it up as a delivery method for loads of random and cynical humor. Two early weapons: Unicorn Head, description "Taste the rainbow, HARD" , Hand Claws, description "Makes you the best at what you do, but nobody else does it" You are everybody's quest **** "genocide must occur", hero for damn near anything. Try the demo, the game is just like that for 10 hours. 7 for quality/price. 9 for me. NEIN!!! Expand

    I just wanted to throw in my two cents on a game that somehow only has one other user review but i just wanted to remind people that if i love deathspank (1 or 2) then they'll love this too. i suppose at this point the critics are trying to mark it down simply for using the same formula 3 times in a row, but these are $10-15 games not 60 dollar cash grabs. they are definitely among the funniest games on xbla and psn, the action won't blow your mind but the entire package is too charming and hilarious to completely dismiss. the first two games scored in the high 70's on metacritic and this one is holding in the 60's range but the only reason i can think of is that it's simply the same formula. and anyone who truly loves deathspank isn't playing it for the visceral combat or brutal violence or intensity. it's just a hilarious change of pace that i definitely appreciate. a 4th one in a row just like this might possibly be pushing it, but that doesn't mean the first 3 are bad in the least.

  1. If anything, the fighting is more frustrating than ever. [Dec 2011, p.111]

    It's just so uninspired in so many ways. [Issue#77, p.101]

    The gameplay hasn't really changed, but it's more than serviceable and will keep you entertained as you make your way from punchline to punchline. If you're in the market for some cheap laughs, this game is an easy recommendation.
