Excerpt: Today I'll be reviewing Armed&Dangerous for the Xbox console. I'll skip the data section right away and tell you one thing:This, my friends, is a TRUE GAMING GEM. When you try this one out for the first time (without having looked at the packaging/the manual lol) you will notice right away that this...
Conclusion: From the initial showing of Armed & Dangerous at E3 2003 I was extremely excited to see LucasArts picking up a title that really seemed to break away from the norm. After playing the game extensively the luster of the story and insane weapons which captivated me initially soon wore off.
Excerpt: Armed and Dangerous looks good, but isn't one of the Xbox's crowning achievements. Overall, the game is very blurry, and feels like it is done at one of the lowest possible resolutions on the Xbox. Cut scenes seem to take the brunt of this low-res punishment.
Conclusion: share the same timeline. (Indeed, with the reference to a Majorcan prophecy, maybe they do...) In the case of AAD, you play as Roman, leader of a group of outlaws called The Lionhearts that set out to steal the all-powerful Book of Rule.
Excerpt: Planet Moon Studios is probably not one of the most famous game developers around. Their first published title Giants: Citizen Kabuto was one of those games with lots of original content, but that didn't seem to have been noticed by many.
Conclusion: On the plus side, A&D is the perfect outlet for your frustrations, barring a few simple search type puzzles it's pure non-stop no-brainer shooty-blasting action. On the downside it's an occasionally painfully unfunny and disappointing game.
Pros: Some nice visuals. Great explosions. Brilliantly imaginative weaponry.
Cons: Despite a few laughs and thrills at the start, overall A&D is a deeply unfunny game that is far too repetitive and simplistic to recommend.
Conclusion: Det verkar som om Planet Moon Studios har koncentrerat sig alldeles för mycket på de fantasifulla vapen som man har till förfogande. Stundtals så känns det som hela spelet kretsar kring de fyndiga sätt man kan utplåna sina plågoandar med – och det räcker inte för att göra ett spel.
