Below you'll find a video showing off Deadpool's opening mission and tutorial gameplay.

Deadpool marks the first time Marvel's merc with a mouth has starred in his own game, and he's quite excited about that. Tamoor was too, but he came away largely unimpressed after playing it for review.

He said in CVG's Deadpool review: "Deadpool is a third-person character action game of the same ilk as DmC: Devil May Cry, Bayonetta or Metal Gear Rising, though inviting comparisons to these are, frankly, unfair... The best that can be said about Deadpool's combat and platforming gameplay is that it functions."

Tamoor concluded: "Cheap laughs and the occasional thrill isn't enough to redeem the half-assed gameplay."
