The Deadpool game is terrible

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.

To me it is a mediocre game with solid humor.

I'm not expecting amazing gameplay from Deadpool in the slightest. I expect easy controls, basic animations, but most importantly, memorable storyline with plenty of laughs along the way.

Daniel Way wrote it. You shouldn't be surprised.

Unsurprising, considering it's source material.

Its exactly what I expected. Which is why I enjoyed it. Its just a hack n slash and the comedy is hilarious. If you expected anything more than that, you deserve to be disappointed lol

What do you expect? It was pretty much Duke Nukem if you kept breaking the fourth wall.

DC should one up Marvel by making an awesome Deathstroke game!!

It would be like COD and Assassin Creed put together :S

Its not that bad, more of a game to rent than buy tho. Its not terribly difficult to play and you get a few chuckles from the dialogue but I'd say wait till it shows up in a redbox or a bargain bin.

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.

Well it may not be the greatest but atleast have a deadpool game now and I feel like if more work was put into this game it could be just about as good as the Arkham Games one day

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.

It's just funny to see people say "ehh the game was alright, maybe not the greatest, it does have some bugs, and sure it's only 5 hours but over all it made me laugh...8.5/10 "

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..

for example:

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.

@banestrokelobogrundybatarrow:

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!).

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.
