Mitch Krpata: Comedy is the hardest thing for a game to do right. DeathSpank does it right.

Salsa Shark: This game was made for me. All the best elements of a Fable-esque adventure and a LucasArts point-and-click in one game? YES PLEASE. It feels like so much effort and thought and love has gone into this game that I almost felt bad getting it for only 600MP on a sale. However, I don’t think this is for everybody; people who grumble at fetch quests and mock unsophisticated combat systems probably won’t enjoy it. But for the right person (or for the right gaming mood) this is a swell little game. If I want full-on RPG capabilities I’ll play Dragon Quest or any other proper, well-rounded, 80+-hour adventuring saga. Deathspank is for those times when you need a lighthearted, uncomplicated game to fill a couple hours.
