First off, I want to say I am a HARDCORE Deadpool fan.
That being said, Deadpool: The Game is not revolutionary and there's nothing fancy about it. If you are a fan of the Deadpool comic or at least familiar with it, you will LOVE this game like I did. If you have never heard of him, move on and play something else.
There's not much of a story to speak of in Deadpool: The Game. A lot of people have complained about this, but here's the thing: IT'S F'N DEADPOOL. High Moon Studios didn't make a game this simple by accident. They did it to be IRONIC. Deadpool himself is simple(and insane), thus his game should be simple like he is. Honestly, it wouldn't FEEL like a Deadpool game if it was more complex like Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden.
The graphics aren't horrible, but they're nothing to write home about. Sound effects are appropriate and music choice is bland. The actual combat itself is quite plain and simple. It is your basic hack-and-slash/shooter, although you can string together some pretty awesome and gruesome combos.
And that's another thing. Plenty of blood and gore courtesy of Deadpool. And boob jokes. Lots and lots of boob jokes. And weiner jokes. And poo jokes. You get the picture.
Honestly, with all of the game's faults, the only thing about it that bothered me was the lack of hidden collectibles or unlockable costumes. No nothing. Unfortunately, this leaves the game with little replay value.
But again, as I said before, if you're a fan of Deadpool, you're going to love the game for it's humor. You can tell High Moon Studios had a blast making this game. And if you have a childish sense of humor, you will have a blast as well.

This game was hilarious....I can't remember the last time I laughed out loud so many times playing a game. The gameplay was linear and not spectacular, but I still had a good time playing it and was hungry to keep playing. Bottom line? Great game to rent, and this is Gamefly, so it was perfect.
