Games review: DeathSpank
Friday 23 July 2010
Format Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network
Publisher Electronic Arts
While the dog days of summer are a seriously slow time for AAA releases, they’re when download titles really come into their own. DeathSpank is a case in point. Created by the gaming genius behind Monkey Island, this RPG offers up gags with its gameplay. The combat system lifts it above some of its big-name rivals and at this price, it’s a summer must-have.
