This reboot of the Tomb Raider series has been hyped for a while and it surpasses every expectation I had. The gameplay is tight, with a deep upgrade system and some worthwhile stealth sections. The story is great and feels like a Tomb Raider game. It is realistic for the most part, while introducing some supernatural elements as the game progresses.
Even though this game is amazing, there is no game without flaws. The only flaw I see in this game is that the characters other than Lara are a little underdeveloped. Even with that, the game is still deserving of a 10/10.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.6Jul 21, 2013Deadpool has been great in most forms of media. This is not an exception. This is a really good hack 'n slash game with a great sense ofDeadpool has been great in most forms of media. This is not an exception. This is a really good hack 'n slash game with a great sense of humor. Most importantly, the game is fun. Video games were made to be fun and that got lost somewhere in between Call of Duty and cinematic games. This is the most fun I have had with a game in a long time. There were times in this game where I smiled. Not because of the comedy, but because I genuinely enjoyed playing this game.
I have seen many reviews of this game, stating that the combat is shallow. I disagree. This isn't the deepest combat around, but it definitely isn't shallow. There are a large assortment of weapons that you can swap between at any time. All of the weapons are upgradable, along with Deadpool himself. There is also a momentum bar that will allow you to unleash massive attacks upon your enemies. Building up this bar requires combos, which require upgrades to weapons and smart fighting. I think most reviewers went through this game, just button mashing the entire time. If you build combos, the combat is jut fine.
This game is hilarious. It is one of the funniest games I have seen in a long time. The writing is great and I was laughing at most of Deadpool's jokes. All of the characters are enjoyable and Nolan North does a passable job as Deadpool. My favorite character by far was Cable. He mad me laugh several times, even appearing as a talking taco at one point in the game.
My only complaint with this game is that sometimes, it falls into the traps that it makes fun of. The game made fun of a downward sliding section while you played through the games downward sliding section. It's okay to make fun of video game tropes, but if you do that, don't fall into that trap.
Overall, this was a great game and a definite pick up for any Deadpool fan, or and hack 'n slash fan in general. This game receives an 8 out of 10.… Expand
