Deadpool is an action superhero game based on the Deadpool Marvel comics and crosses over with various other comic franchises from the Marvel Universe. The game includes famous characters from the X-Men series such as Wolverine and Rogue.
The plot for Deadpool is a meta-story with Deadpool 'forcing' the employees of High Moon Studios to make him a game; it sends him an assassination mission which ultimately, starts a longer journey to stop Mister Sinister and prevent his evil plot.
It was developed by High Moon Studios and published by Activision for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2013. It was re-released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2015.
Deadpool uses guns and katanas as his default weapons to fight with in the game however he also has access to other weapons at certain points in the game. He is able to use giant hammers, plasma guns and he also has a short range teleportation ability. Players can chain combos together using a mix of melee and shooting based combat; a high combo chain will reward the player with DP points which are used to purchase new weapons such as shotguns and grenades or can be used to upgrade his current weapons. The game uses a lock-on targeting feature for guns; the player is able to lock the gun onto a specific target.
Later in the game, there are 'challenges' the player must complete. These have been set by Death and are small puzzles which are different to the rest of the game and the other levels.
The game frequently breaks the fourth wall as Deadpool converses directly with the player about various topics such as the game progression. This follows the meta-story nature of the game, where Deadpool forces the developer to create a game for him.
