  1. 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.
  2. Lack of multiplayer and the relatively short single-player certainly don't do much good for the game's replay value, so the decision on whether or not you should buy Armed and Dangerous depends greatly on how much you like the style of humor that oozes from every pore of this title.

    It's fairly hard to put a finger on why it all works. [Mar 2004, p.70]

    We need more games like this - ones that are confident and individual - but we need them to be less roughly hewn. The core of the game is solid, but the way it's applied throughout the levels just isn't interesting enough. [Mar 2004, p.98]
  5. While the game looks good, controls well and is genuinely funny in spots, the action starts to get repetitive fairly early on. But you gotta love that shark gun.
  6. Creativity and gags galore, but we’re too close to falling asleep.
  7. For "Giants" veterans, don't expect too much from A&D, as it isn't half as special as its precursor, but I would recommend playing it if only for the fantastic cutscenes.
  8. Has some funny moments and wild weapons, but it still can’t shake its straightforward gameplay. If you’re in the mood to just blow things up with no strings attached, this is the game for you, but more discerning gamers might be left wanting a little more.

    Planet Moon's Armed and Dangerous is "Kelly's Heroes" meets "Shrek" by way of Monty Python and Guy Ritchie. [Mar 2004, p.74]
  10. 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. ButOverall 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.

    Combines Pythonesque humour and 3rd person shooting, a novel plot and some fun action with daft weapons. If only it could be re-vamped to Combines Pythonesque humour and 3rd person shooting, a novel plot and some fun action with daft weapons. If only it could be re-vamped to latest technology with multiplayer. Or make me a sequel!! Full Review »
