Deadpool on PS3 is a game that does a damn fine job at breaking the 4th wall. Heck, by the time you’ve reached the 2nd level the wall will be nothing more than a pile of rubble. Case in point… here is what Deadpool has to say about his very own game:
There are a few important things I need to say before you crack into my insanely sweet game. (Oof. Here we go again.) I’m a mercenary with an accelerated healing factor. I’ve been described as unstable, which is just plain coo-coo. (Wait, do sane people say coo-coo?) I’m gonna battle for the safety of humans and mutants. (And even mumans.) Be prepared for just about anything. (Holla!)
If you’ve ever played Transformers: War for Cybertron, you would know that, for being a franchise based off of a different media, it was actually a pretty decent game. It’s a third person shooter that took place during a civil war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. It allowed you to transform between robot and vehicle on the fly as well, which was often required during parts of the campaign. A little over two years later, High Moon Studios and Activision have added another title to this franchise, with the subtitle of “Fall of Cybertron.”
With the relative success of War for Cybertron, a bit was riding on the shoulders of its sequel to make improvements to the franchise for an overall better game. The question a lot of us are left with is whether or not the sequel lives up to these expectations or suffers from mediocrity. Be warned, this review may contain spoilers.
