  • Summary: Spawn: Armageddon, based on Todd McFarlane's creation, is a 3-D action adventure that gives players access to all of Spawn's distinctive abilities, superhuman strength, arsenal of weaponry, Hell Powers, and, of course, his living symbiotic costume. Caught between the battle of Good vs. Evil, he struggles to break free from the controlling influences of Heaven and Hell. Expand

  1. A great action game, especially for the Xbox since we didn’t get "Devil May Cry," and Otogi: Myth of Demons is about as close as you can get to this style of carnal gameplay. For fans of the Spawn franchise, Manson fans, or fans of Goth-horror in general, this is a no-brainer.
  2. 77
    Challenged by a few technical issues (especially on the GameCube) and held back because of its repetition, it might not grab as many audiences as Namco hopes -- Even if it is mindless, good-looking fun.
  3. The game basically says, "You're obvioulsy really stupid, so we're going to hold onto your hand and lead you through this stage. [Jan 2004, p.151]
  4. Regardless of the game's inspiration, Armageddon is a mediocre action game that is carried only by its license.
  5. 55
    A very standard beat 'em up/third-person shooter that has many of the elements you'd expect (minor upgrades between levels, slow-motion special power) and none that you wouldn't.
  6. 50
    Although Armageddon’s selection of slick, diabolical hardware is great, using it turns into a fumbling experience. Between multiple foes attacking in every direction and the unintuitive button setup, switching between your weapons is a chore.
  7. Armageddon, real or video style, should not be this uninspired. [Jan 2004, p.91]
