    Meridian Digital Entertainment, the developer behind the popular and awesome Alive 4-ever & Alive 4-ever RETURNS (among other cool games) takes tactical strategy games to a whole new level with their latest title, Armageddon.

    In Armageddon it is your job to take control and play the commander of units from Magnus in a fight again Licinius, who has turned the country into a state of inhumane dictatorship with no care or interest in its people: Licinius only cares about power and greed, and it is crucial that you successfully fight the opponent to restore peace and order to your country.

    As a commander you control the flow of your own units, tailoring them to suit missions at hand and ensure your own bases are secure and untouchable. The game consists of a customize commander system, unit against system, and a versus (2-player) system.

    Features:

    - Head-To-Head against another player via Bluetooth or local Wi-Fi.
    - Strategically upgrades units and tailor commander configurations.
    - 16 different types of units.
    - 70 stages available to keep you busy!
    - 8 special moves.
    - 3 unique game modes.
    - More than 40 achievements through OpenFeint Support.
    - Fabulous visual effects.
    - Incredible background music and realistic sound effects.

    If you don't mind a bit of grinding for cash, Armageddon by Meridian can be a fun and interesting action-strategy title, just don't expect fast progress through the campaign.

    Armageddon is a straightforward castle vs. castle battler that opts for simplicity and a high level of difficulty over creativity and depth.

    Meridian has certainly done a good joob in creating a not-so-elaborate but effective game, with charming graphics and strong gameplay mechanics. Armageddon provides a lot of extra contents - from artworks to alternative game modes - and the OpenFeint support expands the formula with social features like leaderboards and achievements. Unfortunately, the 70 too-much-similar levels weigh against the final evaluation, while the high difficulty could demoralize some players.

    Armageddon is a fun game with an addictive upgrade system, but it's nearly ruined by terrible pacing.
