It isn't even mediocre and delivers comic references that make it tolerable. Its bad, really bad. Of course thats subjective, but I was so optimistic, I bordered on saccharine.
The Deadpool game is terrible
I figured it would be bad. Nothing would have made me happier than to hear it was good and see it get high ratings on the game review sites, but I was pretty sure that was going to happen. None of the trailers or screenshots I saw ever even gave me hope that it might be anything more than mediocre at best. Plus, I don't even like the High Moon games that have been well received.
I can't even remember the last time there was a good Marvel game that wasn't by Raven Software. Marvel needs to get them back making their games, because it seems like whoever is in charge at Marvel of licensing these out to other developers doesn't know anything about gaming. Well, at least Lego Marvel should be fun.
Comedy is subjective, so I think the higher tolerance you have for Deadpool (the character) and the less exposure you have to meta-humor in video games correlates to how much you find the game "funny". I thought the stuff from Giant Bomb's quick look as well as the footage pre-release trailers looked pretty dire but if you enjoy the game's sense of humor, good for you.
I'm just burnt out on jokes like "look I'm in a video game, this is a bad video game mechanic har har har" because stuff like The Simpsons Game & Eat Lead already made the same jokes YEARS ago.
@ccraft see this game is very basic they didn't do anything new or that has already been done half of you are probably just wanna come on here and bad mouth it have everyone here actually played it or did they watch it on YouTube I'm very proud with my purchase they didn't ruin the franchise everyone thinks that the standards are all call of duty get your head out of your ass and grow up call of duty had sold out and became Shit it was so bad Activision had to call on treyarch to save the franchise and they haven't made a game since world at War so fuck all of you if you wanna hate go hate somewhere else and not butch about just to birch about it play it do massive combos deadpool would be disappointed in all ofyou so just go ahead and delete your account and never come back
@sukitwolvie23: I played the game on Pc by all means its not a terrible game.I've read some of deadpool's comics from the 90s but yeah this game could of been better It just needs alot of worl I hope theirs a sequel.But I have seen far more terrible games then this its atleast 4.5/10 but deadpool isnt for everyone
To be honest,I was surprised on the ignorance that I saw from people....it was staggering. Some people don't know the character,and I don't expect them to (like theradbrad),others are equally ignorant and still don't know what they're talking about..
Deadpool is an assassin
Deadpool is a superhero
Deadpool would kill anything
Deadpool works for Magneto
Deadpool works for Weapon X
Deadpool is a member of the XMEN (which he WAS,and he WAS a member of Uncanny X force)
etc. I understand if you don't really know the character,he's incredibly popular but not a household name.And the summaries the game gives you doesn't even scratch the surface of the characters. It's so simple,even outdated. The wikipedia summaries (which still don't go deeper into the character and their history) is far more thorough. But I can understand if you don't know a lot about the character....but please don't base your knowledge on those useless "character summaries".
Anyway,this is just rambling. The game was not the best...
Noooooo, it was generic and using Deadpool as a gimmick!!!
Waht a shock!!!
I was being sarcastic, since i saw the trailer i notice it was a generic game and they just decide to put Deadpool on it.
I am happy for him, but i am sick and tired of Daniel Way.
Yeah! but hopefully High Moon Studios; will upgrade the features, in the Deadpool sequel! (Should they decide to make a sequel!)
But aside from that, come on everyone! Deadpool; is an amazing character! He deserves a chance for redemption! Deadpool; cannot keep being a "tag-along" in other video games! He needs his own game, to be his "Awesomely Extreme Bad-Ass" self, taking names and breaking skulls!! (And Vise Versa!).
I haven't played it but my brother-in-law really enjoyed it. He's coming over this weekend so I'l tell him to bring it so I can play.
Yeah, definitely give it a chance. People are tough on it because people just love to hate anything based on a comic that isn't a comic. It's overall a generally fun action game with a lot of great comic references. Deadpool's just as funny and kickass as he always is.
I heard a ton of bad things about the game, so went in not excepting much out of the game. Loved every minute of playin it thou, total blast for me. Wasn't the best game, but I wasn't expecting it to be. Daniel Way was the worst writer for deadpool, but I still enjoyed his comics, but his work on the game is like 10 times better than the comics he did, being as the game allows for some heavier language. If you can't laugh at lowbrow humor don't try the game, but if you can enjoy some stupid jokes about boobs and tacos you'll have a great time with this game like I did.
