This week, I’m reviewing the underrated video game, Deadpool. I know it came out last June, but it’s the funniest video game I’ve ever played.
The game itself acts like it has the biggest ego, but it’s actually pretty small, like Deadpool himself. He’s known as the “Merc with a Mouth” and boy does he talk a lot. My favourite part of this game is the near-constant witty banter between Deadpool’s multiple personalities, all voiced by video game voice-over all-star Nolan North, who voiced Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series.
The level of comedy in this game is outstanding. The funniest part by far is definitely at the beginning of level four, where Wolverine lets Deadpool drive the X-Jet—he crashes, of course. You, the player, get to try and wake up Wolverine, who’s unconscious, by slapping him. The funny thing is that if you keep hitting the button, Deadpool will keep slapping Wolverine, saying something hilarious every second slap! … I guess you have to be there.
Other than the comedy, the story and the combat are pretty basic. Sinestro is trying to take over the world, so you and the X-men need to take him down. You get three weapons, four guns, and four items.
I loved this game—simple yet hilarious.
