The answer is Armed & Dangerous, a game that gives you a ragtag crew with an impossible mission: Pull 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; your team has plenty of ammo and absolutely no common sense.

    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.

    The cutscenes are hilarious. They are rude, crude and to some, maybe even a little shocking.
  3. The collected cutscenes are funnier 100 times over than an episode of "Friends" and on par with "Monty Python" for being off-kilter.
  4. A large portion of the enjoyment comes from the same type of British humour that featured in ‘Giants’; it’s certainly not an easy thing to develop a game that manages to make you laugh, however this one certainly succeeds.
  5. Just your average shooter. It doesn't really offer any innovation in the genre and the graphics and audio are rather plain.

    The open-ended level design - and especially the nifty fortress-defense stages - made for many moments of shooter Zen. [Jan 2004, p.154]

    A relentless conveyor belt of cannon fodder ensures the carnage is kept at a suitably frantic rate, yet with every wave of cookie-cutter thrown to the mercy of your crosshair, repetition becomes an increasingly prevalent factor. [Mar 2004, p.116]

While the graphics are a little rough, the humorous cut scenes really propel you along: encouraging you to get through the game. The humor is also present in the, admittedly shallow, weapon selection. Later in the game there are several jetpac levels spicing things up a little. A great game, if you're not interested in buying it definitely watch the cut scenes on youtube. Expand

But the gameplay variety could really use some work. It's a single player only shooter, and the goals always seem to involve blowing something up. Collapse

    A&D is definitely not the most fun shooter I've ever played. The graphics are just a step above Half-Life 1, which is pretty much A&D is definitely not the most fun shooter I've ever played. The graphics are just a step above Half-Life 1, which is pretty much unacceptable for a game made in 2003. The gameplay is overly repetitive and gets old after a short bit of playing. However, the cutscenes are hilarious and the Shark Gun and Topsy Turvy Bomb give at least 30 minutes of pleasure. This is a game for entering cheat codes in, not one for playing in full. Expand

C'estPlutôt moche et très bourrin ! l'univers décalé hystéro-bouffon ne parvient pas à convaincre malgré une VF intégrale de bon aloi. C'est toujours la même chose : dégommer des troufions par centaines ad nauseam et qui n'arrêtent pas de réapparaître... forcément ça soûle assez rapidement. Un petit jeu trop limité et répétitif, pour ne pas dire minable. Expand
