The Completionist Edit

Jirard reviewed Deadpool for the 161st episode of The Completionist, and as the second episode of Superhero Month 2016.

Jirard praises the game’s narrative as focusing more on Deadpool himself, rather than following the typical superhero tropes. He’s also fond of the game’s visual presentation. He especially loves the writing and Nolan North’s voice acting. Most of all, he loves how the game frequently breaks the fourth wall. However, he finds the music underwhelming. He’s also saddened by the missed potential with the remaster.

Jirard addresses the complaint that the game is repetitive. He disagrees, noting the choices in combat and difficulty. He also addresses the game’s short length, which doesn’t bother him that much. Overall, he loves the gameplay. However, he points out how rushed and awkwardly the game ends.
