View Full Version : Armed & Dangerous demo

Has anybody checked out the A&D demo on this month's official Xbox magazine? If not, do so. This is the most addictive, funny, pure fun game I've played in ages, reminiscent of those old Amiga games where gameplay and originality took the frontseat to flashy graphics. Not that the graphics are bad, but you kinda forget about it when you sit in a turret with hundreds (if not thousands) of enemies storming you base.

The two games I was going for the next few months were Broken Sword 3 and Deus Ex 2. Now it looks like DE2 will have to wait.

I haven't yet but I might, If I was going to get it I'd get the pc version though. No pc demo yet though :(

I thought it was great, but I'm still a little disappointed in the explosions. In a game that focuses on sheer firepower, I think the explosions should be a bit more than a puff of red. Still cool, but could use a little more, um....bang.

Yeah, it's strange, some explosions are huge and impressive, but some look un-finished. Maybe they'll be better in the final game.

I would post on the mojo news item if I could login... this seems to be the most relevant place to mention it.

The trailer can be found here (http://www.lucasarts.com/products/armedanddangerous/images/movies/trailer_1.mov) if you don't like being forced to use flash....

That's the old trailer I think (the E3 one with the "just shove him in there" joke), the new one I can't find as a QT file anywhere.

The biggest question on my mind is...
Does this game support widescreen TVs?? From the looks of the screenshots it probably does, but I wanna make sure before I get it.

I don't know, but I would expect so. Doesn't most Xbox games these days?

I guess it's safe to say that there won't be a PC demo.

12-04-2003, 09:03 PM
A PC demo should be out soon. I can also confirm that it's HDTV compatible.

Look out for Mojo review in a few days. ;

Is it coming out for gamecube?

12-05-2003, 01:48 AM
Xbox and PC only.

Is there a guide to finding all the tokens floating around somewhere already? I want bonus levels.

There's a rather interesting new Armed & Dangerous article, which describes the interaction between Planet Moon & LucasArts in great detail.

Read it here (http://actionvault.ign.com/features/den/armedndangerouswrap.shtml)

The PC demo is on the latest CD version of PC Gamer (and probably the DVD too, I'm not quite sure). It's fantastic! I thought the cut-scene was great (though the French-bashing annoyed/confused me). It's totally on my 'to get' list. Is it released yet? I couldn't find it in Game.
