The middle of the trilogy does not disappoint. There were a lot of things to do and a lot of places to explore. There were a lot of interesting quests and a lot of laughs to be had. I loved getting the bazookas because there are MORE pips (or giants) in this one, and the pips were one of my big irritations with the first game. Bazookas basically take that problem away. You can also level to 21, which also helps. I think they worked on the leveling in this game, and mobs scale much better. They also give you a lot of different guns to use, which are interesting to deal with.
I only had two issues while playing. When you scoll over the map to find where the questgivers are located, the names will often be the wrong character. This happened in the first game as well, and could just be lag or something. It didn't happen all the time. There was also a glitch where, every now and then, when you opened the map, the game would turn off. This happened to me a couple of times.
Otherwise, it's fun and worth the time, and not all that easy to win.
Could of, Should have been 5 stars
At the beginning I loved this game, I really got into it UNTIL the game required me to use items from my inventory, all went down hill from there. I have a smart mouse and have right click which works for EVERYTHING else, but can not get the inventory items to be used not even with command click. So after a few very fun hours I turned the game off. I even went as far as to buy (stupid me) the first game - Deathspank ( I thought I might be missing something taught in the first game) , and again after a few hours found that I am unable to use items in my inventory (the empty bucket, monster food, etc) So after buying 2 games and wasting a few hours I am sad to say I can't play this game. The graphics are great, the story line is awesome but if I am stuck and unable to controle things properly there is no purpose of wasting more time.
Could have been 5 stars.
Great game and worth every cent.
Works flawlessly on my standard 2011 Macbook Pro, never any lag, and rapid load times. The game has beautiful graphics with an incredibly imaginative world, hilarious dialogue and stories, interesting "quests" and great sound. The game is very enjoyable to play. If you played the first "DeathSpank" and liked it, you will love this one, I think it's better in many ways. The third game "The Baconing" I was actually a little dissapointed with, so if you played that and didn't enjoy it you should still give this one a try. I look forward to a possible fourth installment that is a return to form.
