    Underrated, highly enjoyable, funny hack and slash

    Deadpool, the game, is a humorous character action game starring the most wacky, lovable and only merc-with-a-mouth. Dead pool, the character, is the hilarious, butt kicking-ist assassin hero that has ever graced Marvel with his presence. The action, the humor and the overall gameplay is the flash point of what all the comics, TV appearances and video game cameos made you want. Anyone who is a fan of the gun-kata maestro, a lover of character action games or anyone who loves to wrack up big combos with a flurry of blood and bullets will want to pick this up whenever they can.

    Deadpool's an enjoyable game, provided you like the comic character of the same name. The dialogue is spot-on for the character, and the story is appropriately cheesy, but the controls fall a little flat and floaty (especially when switching between melee and ranged combat). Buy if you're a fan of the character or the genre.

    I love the character of Deadpool. He's fascinating, insane, and funny, and the developers found a really great balance for his persona, and it actually translates really well to the video game. Gameplay is kind of clunky at first, but it's easy to get the hang of it once you get going. For any fan of Marvel characters, this game is for you.

    This game is really for mature audiences for the gore and violence mixed well with a funny script. The character (Deadpool) never fails to entertain especially his use of one liners. The cameos of the well known X Men characters makes it highly recommended for Marvel fans. If there is a sequel, I'll definitely get one.

    I got this game because I'm a fan of the character. That part the game got right. The character is fun and funny, just like in the comics. However each level is very repetitive and the game play is very similar level to level. I'm not an avid gamer, but even I'm a little disapointed by this game.

    I bought this video game for my son since he liked the movie so much and til this day I have not regret that decision because we both get in to the game for hours there's multiple levels a lot of action and you get to interact a lot with the character and that makes this game so much more amazing. I would really recommend this game to have a father son moment in today's busy world I love to share play time with my son it's like we are the best friends in the world when we hit the video games.

    Deadpool is the next greatest Marvel character with the huge movie coming out soon and the comics taking off. Awesome to see a company take over to create a game.

    Over the top action with plenty of snark that is Deadpool's signature. Laugh-out-loud funny moments aplenty.

    Deadpool is one of my fav characters so the game was great to be able to play him, would have liked more choices of what to say and do as his quirky sense of humour could have be more controllable. Overall a good game, kinda glad I didn't pay full price but got it on sale.

    I am not usually one to play games that follow a single path, but this game's humor made it one of a kind. This was by far one of the funniest games I have ever played and great jokes. The controls are easy to pick up. I do not regret this purchase.

    A fun stress reliever. Basic hack and slash style 3rd person shooter. Funny commentary as expected from Deadpool character. Can be challenging.

    I was really excited for this game to come out on Xbox 360. However, after playing it, I'm a lil disappointed. While Deadpool's inner and outer dialogue with his multiple personalities as well as other characters in the game is nothing short of comedic genius, the storyline, or lack thereof, is slightly disheartening. Also, from level to level, it starts to feel fairly repetitive. The graphics, audio and gameplay is pretty good for the most part. The witty banter, the use of other characters from the Marvel Universe and the leveling up system are enough to keep you playing...BUT...I do find myself (often) wishing for better and more diverse levels. They're far too linear to call "Deadpool" a "great" game. Another aspect I find bothersome are the enemies. It feels like they go straight from being a normal, fair difficulty to being far too difficult fit where you're, and what you have to use in the game. All in all, of you're a Comic fan or a Deadpool fan specifically, you can find a decent amount of entertainment in the game, but don't expect anything epic. I would recommend either renting it first or waiting for a price drop.

    This game cannot be compared to games like "The Last of Us" or "Batman: Arkham City" as it is not as technical or in-depth as games like that BUT if you are a fan of Deadpool then this game is a must have. This is the funniest game I have ever played. No game before this one has ever had me actually laughing to the point of tears. The action can be a bit repetitive at times but that does not mean the game is not fun. There are some wonderful animations that go with his combos and when you perform his momentum moves. Silent kills can be performed in certain areas and each weapon has 2 different silent kill animations. Each weapon also has numerous upgrades available. The writer of the game, Daniel Way, also a writer for the Deadpool comics, totally nails the character again for this game. Combined with the voice genius of Nolan North, Deadpool is never at a loss of words when fighting a group of villains or making anatomy size jokes while standing at a urinal. This game is meant to just pick up the controller, mash some buttons, and decapitate and maim endless waves of enemies. I believe it was Activision and High Moon Studios' goal to create a simplistic but extremely fun game that is not taken too serious due to that is not in the character's nature and for that I believe they have succeeded. Deadpool is the Three Stooges of the Marvel Universe and this game does a perfect job of capturing him and all his crazy 4th wall breaking hijinks. 4 out of 5 stars easy!

    Hilarious game, but lacking in replay value

    Bought this game after watching a video of someone getting some of the Achievements for it. At first I was a little hesitant about getting it because I knew barely anything about Deadpool. Thankfully you don't have to in order to enjoy the game. As the title suggests, the game is about Deadpool a mutate mercenary for higher from the Marvel Comics universe and a character that is constantly breaking the 4th Wall. The game starts off with Deadpool taking on a contract and then the story takes off from there. Depending on your skill level, the difficulty you play on and whether or not you want to get all the achievements, gameplay can last from 6-35hrs. The game uses its character's affinity for absurd dialog and actions quite well. High Moon leaned on this heavily and there's barely a scene where Deadpool doesn't do something to make you laugh. High Moon also made sure to include a lot of 4th Wall breaking goodness. Taking heavy amounts damage will have Deadpool telling you to give someone else the controller, pets included, and deaths will earn you a quick rant. There are a few instances in the game where Deadpool will go so far as call up the Development team to complain about what is happening in game. Story wise, the game is sort of straight forward. Sort of as in, you are playing Deadpool's game and there's other stuff going on, but it'sn't important to Deadpool. There is a general "stop the bad guy, save the world" theme, but the exact nature of this is thrown out by Deadpool himself and you never actually learn what the bad guy is trying to do. The game is pretty much linear and doesn't offer a branching storyline of some sort. Comedy plays a heavy hand in everything, but this unfortunately makes replay value drop quickly. One can only hear the same joke so many times before it gets old. Gameplay wise, it's "use various weapons to kill a bunch of a bad guys". There isn't that much variety in the enemies in the game. You will see same guys throughout the game with the only difference being what grouping they appear in. There are a total of 4 boss battles in the game and the latter 2 felt somewhat lazy. Case and point, the final battle is that you have to progressively battle 20-30 of the same guy, with only a slight variation in each wave. Navigation is quite easy with a pretty linear path and very few puzzles to deal with. Unfortunately the linearity of things made backtracking impossible. There were a few instance where after you jumped on a ledge, the game would set the death line immediately below the ledge so jumping backing down to get your loot from an enemy, that you may have knocked of the edge, was impossible. One of my biggest qualms with the game was checkpoints. There are several points where the game will screw you over with checkpoints. Depending on where a checkpoint is set to go off, you may end up fighting guys you have killed before triggering it. In the last level, you have to kill 2 melee enemies and a flying enemy. After killing them and triggering the checkpoint you would expect to never see them again, well that isn't what happens. When you return to the checkpoint all 3 will be waiting for you and you have to fight them again with the same ammo you had when you triggered the checkpoint. This made it extremely annoying when you have to use only 2 specific weapons to get an Achievement. Another major flaw is the spacing of the checkpoints. There were a couple of occasions where you have to battle some seriously annoying enemies and then battle some more in the next area with no checkpoint inbetween. If you died, then you have to repeat both battles again. Achievement wise, they are all pretty easy with only the 300 hit combo and the 5 medals in challenge mode providing any difficulty. Aside from the checkpoints and lack of variety in the enemies, the game was quite fun. Depending on your skill level, the comedic dialog might keep you playing the game if you start with the games hardest difficulty. In terms of pricing, the game would be better priced at 39.99, but is fine at 49.99. If you are looking for a game to make you laugh, then this is your game. I have never laughed as hard at a videogame before. Here's hoping for either a sequel or maybe some good DLC. Note: I started the game on the hardest difficulty #Ultra-Violent# and used the other difficulties to get the Achievements I missed. In total it took me 32-35 hours to beat the game and get all the Achievements.
