  • Summary: Take a band of gun-toting rebels - a robot, a madman, a mole and a criminal mastermind. Put them in a vividly stunning fantasy realm. Then give them an impossible mission - pulling off the biggest heist of all time in the middle of a war. All you have to do is battle your way through dastardly enemies, giant war machines and an army of psychopathic robots. But don't worry; you have plenty of ammo and absolutely no common sense. Victory is yours in 12,000 bullets or less! Fight your way through 21 action-packed missions. Brandish over 17 outlandish weapons like the Cyclops Sniper Rifle, the Vindaloo Rocket Launcher, or the Topsy-Turvy and Sticky bomb. Explore five diverse environments including icy and snowy regions, mountains with breathtaking vistas, deep and foreboding woods, and rain-spattered cliffs. Take down wicked enemies like half-man, half-animal Grunts, eliminator droids, wall-smashing Goliaths, evil monks and wild twiglets. Navigate through a richly entertaining story with two smack-talkin' partners in crime. [LucasArts] Expand

  1. Planet Moon set out to create a game that was pure, visceral fun and it did just that. You can sit down and play for ten minutes or ten hours and still be enthralled.
  2. From its sense of humor to its finely tweaked gameplay, Armed & Dangerous is a spectacular and engaging game—a third person shooter for fans of the genre or those sick of the recent wave of formulaic entries it has received.
  3. Packed with action and personality.
  4. The humor level here is really high, though, and I got more genuine laughs from the cutscenes than from any other game or movie in recent memory. For that reason alone, Armed & Dangerous is absolutely worth playing.
  5. But when the fun cruelly comes to an end after a little over five or six hours, what are you left with? The humour. And since the gags wear thin quicker than the knees on Dennis the Menace's jeans, for laughs, give us "Phoenix Nights" or "The Office" any day. [PC Zone]
  6. A good game, but toward the end of it, you'll likely be far more interested in seeing how the story ends--and the jokes it tells along the way--than in its gameplay.
  7. It has a hilarious story with wonderful characters, but the lackluster graphics, twitchy gameplay and repetitive levels make this just another mediocre shooter.

    Overall nice game, the humour is quite good, gameplay is varied. Shooting is satisfying and fun, and the game packs a challenge on normal. But all the variations in the gameplay are quite unnecessary, like the boring turret sequences, and escort and timed missions.
    The quality of the movie cutscenes are terrible, both animation and picture quality.
    Level design is not the best either, they are quite big but very bland, with low resolution textures and packed with pre-made objects.
