You’ll want to give the campaign a run for sure as this is the bread and butter of the game. Take your time. As you explore through each chapter, especially the first chapter. The shock factor kicks in immediately from the moment the game starts up and if you have any sense of humor you’ll find yourself chuckling out loud. Listening to Deadpool, as well as his inner voices is a treat and never once gets dull. Seeing how perverted and vulgar Deadpool makes this game one of a kind and will really get people interested in this super hero is they were not previously. I mean seriously. How can a super hero be so in your face adult oriented yet still be someone that you care about and want to help succeed throughout the story. And how can you not go wrong with appearances by some of the X-Men most notably Wolverine.
The controls in the game are pretty straight forward. You’ll use a button for jumping, one for light attacks and one for heavy attacks. Another button will allow Deadpool to teleport around enemies when that ability is charged. You’ll string together combos which earn cash, ammo and even taco icons. Be sure to pick those up as you’ll be able to earn an achievement. Gun play is handled with the triggers. One for aiming and the other is used for shooting. There are plenty of weapons and attack combos at your disposal and those can be unlocked in the upgrade menu. As I mentioned earlier, the camera can get turned around from time to time and you’ll find yourself in awkward positions but it’s not a huge problem.
The audio in the game is freaking awesome. All of the voiceover work is superb and really adds depth to the game. Deadpool’s personality shines in the one liners and listening to his inner voices is quite hilarious. All of the voices in the game lend to the games atmosphere and environment. The acting in this game is truly what makes it. I have no complaints about the other sounds in the game but as you can probably tell most of those sounds are obscured by Deadpool’s constant barrage of smart-ass comments and attitude.
