Deadpool Video Game: The 4th Wall With a Mouth

Deadpool

Deadpool Video Game is proving that the merc is shooting down and slicing up the cage of just being a comic book character, he finally has his own video game. The Deadpool video game is a first for the character. Activision is publishing another in a long line of Marvel video games and developer by High Moon Studios handled the production. The developer is known for other titles like Transformers: War of Cybertron and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. The game came out on June 25 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Deadpool Video Game


The game centers on the character Deadpool, a comic book character created by Marvel in 1991. He is a very popular character and well received by the comic book world. Originally, Deadpool was created as a joke and not taken seriously, however, in recent years he has become a fan favorite because of his humor and tendency to break so many rules narratively. He is best known as an ultra-violent character; who is eccentric, self-aware and is constantly breaking the fourth wall. Deadpool has Wolverine’s healing factor so it is impossible to kill him. This is one of the reasons other characters in the Marvel universe do not like him: THEY CANNOT GET RID OF HIM…ever.

The Deadpool video game is not serious and that makes it fun for the player. He is unpredictable and the player never knows what he is going to say next. The creators of the Deadpool video game were nervous about the project because they wanted to make the game as perfect as possible to satisfy the dedicated fans. The whole experience is reminiscent of other hack-and-slash games. For example, games like Dante’s Inferno by EA or Bayonetta by Platinum Games and Sega. The combat portion is like Devil May Cry by CAPCOM and is heavy on the game play when it comes to fighting enemies.

The story revolves around Deadpool trying to make a video game, while in the game itself. Despite the effort of other characters that try to stop him, he continues his goal, easily dispatching anyone trying to stop him. In other parts of the game, the player goes through sections where stealth is necessary to complete a goal. It then becomes awkward because Deadpool is not a stealthy character. He is very loud, self-centered, and is constantly talking to himself. He does not care about any situation, and plows right through whatever is in front of him.

Deadpool like a demented angel.

In the Deadpool video game demo at E3 2013, there were different choices of weapons that the player can utilize. The arsenal weapons consist of katanas, sai, hammers, classic pistols, shotguns and submachine guns. Bear traps were used to help keep the enemies in one place. The traps proved extremely useful when dealing with the oversized enemies that Deadpool goes up against. The gameplay is solid and smooth when fighting enemies in open combat. The dialog throughout the Deadpool video game demo was hilarious. The demo started out in Deadpool’s apartment where he was talking to Nolan North (Deadpool’s voice actor) to voice him in the video game (which he is currently in). Basically, Deadpool had a conversation with himself.

The Deadpool video game is extremely violent, but this is to be expected of the Marvel anti-hero. Fans of Deadpool from the comic books will instantly identify and enjoy the game. It is a very unique and humorous hack-and-slash game.
