    If you have to suffer through a zombie armageddon, there's no better way to pass the time until the doomsday clock reaches midnight than unleashing carnage on the PS3 with the apocalyptically action-packed need-for-killing-speed enjoyment of Armageddon Riders.

    Smashing into crowds of rancid flesh-eating zombies ought to be a terrifying life-or-death battle, not like shooting fish in a barrel.

    Armageddon Riders offers you a wired setting with action-racers driving through Zombie, oops sorry, Atom City. The gameplay is pretty entertaining but I'm missing more variety to keep the player playing for hours. All in all the cost of play is absolutely ok and if you like to kill some zombies while driving with your upgraded car, then Armageddon Riders is the perfect game for you!
  4. Crush zombies under your wheels, customize your vehicles with knives and kill some more of the undead. This game wants to be a tribute to the pc-classic, but forgets a few things. Like humor. [Nov 2011, p.98]

    Those looking for something Carmageddon-shaped to fill a hole in their lives could do a lot worse. [Issue#207, p.99]
  6. The choice of missions in the open world is disappointingly limited. [Aug 2011, p.110]

    Despite a few niggles, Armageddon Riders provides hours of entertainment whether you are playing alone or with a friend.

    Remember Carmageddon? Armageddon Riders does really look like that classic game, but of course with good graphics, a lot of zombies instead of people and fine gameplay. The game can be a bit repetitive after playing a while, but overall it's a great PlayStation Network game!

    To be punny about it, the game is mindless fun, but how inconsistent the world's rules are will disappoint and frustrate most people. A lack of online multiplayer severly limits this the replay value. It has potential but it doesn't solidify any ideas.

    This game offers fun without complications, and it may be fun for quick games of twenty minutes, but it lacks in extra modes and doesn't have an online component.

    Armageddon Riders is fun to play and there are enough missions to entertain you but they lack variaton. An online multiplayer and more variaton in the missions would have improved this game, but for €9.99 it's still a nice deal.

    If you are looking for a driving game that doesn't take itself too seriously and can be played in long sessions or just for 20 minutes, then Armageddon Riders may be what you are looking for.

    This is actually a pretty darn good game ! If i'm not mistaking the game runs at 60 fps, has no blur, but does have light to mild screen tearing though, but nothing really serious. The game has different power ups, lots of upgrades, lots of cars, and different skins. The car handling is also very smooth, it actually handles just the way you want it to in this kind of game, it never gets frustrating. The game even makes use of the six-axis controller, you can shock zombies of your car by moving the controller fast up and down, it works good, the rest of the game is controlled normally. If you like a mix between burnout and carmageddon then this is your game ! And for only 10 Euro 's you just can't go wrong, trust me you will have a bloody good time ;) Full Review »
