Conclusion: Spawn: Armageddon isn’t going to turn the action/adventure category upside down, but it will get the attention of its based-on-a-comic-book competition. With so many bad super-hero games out there including two from the Spawn franchise, it was a must that Armageddon was up to par with other action/adventure titles currently available.
Excerpt: Spawn: Armageddon follows the story of a government assassin that dies and returns from hell. But instead of doing deeds for the underworld, he uses his newfound powers to violently exact retribution and his own brand of justice in New York; a kind of modern personification of the Old Testament's eye for an eye rule. All of this constitutes as decent gaming material. No holds barred, there's no excuse for this good guy not to exercise full force on his opponents.
Excerpt: In many ways, Spawn and other comic book characters can be broken down into simple, recognizable and often very similar archetypes. Most of them are orphans. Most of them are good innocent people whose laudable intents were turned against them. Most have one inhibited weakness while their other senses and powers are amplified to compensate. Spawn: Armageddon follows the story of a government assassin that dies and returns from hell.
