Armed and Dangerous is a action adventure third person shooter where the main draw is the funny quirky action game play with a story that will make you laugh. This game has a lot of different weapons that are very unique and some are very funny, along with enemies that are fun to kill and can be intelligent it is a good rental title to play through and enjoy. it flaws with no multiplayer and a short campaign, but still very enjoyable in its own right!
Armed and Dangerous was a nice breath of fresh air as far as games go. The story is absolutely hi-lar-e-ous and the game is honestly just a lot of fun.
From shark guns to straight up machine guns, you get all the arsenal you'll need to run around stage after stage wiping out enemies. Though, truth be told, the game can get a little repetative, but you just can't stop playing becuase you'll want to get to those outrageous cut scenes in between stages.

Armed and Dangerous: 8/10: While certainly far from perfect Armed and Dangerous avoids quite a few of the pitfalls that have encumbered recent 3rd person shooters and it has a Shrek meets Monty Python sense of humor to boot. What pitfalls you ask? Well there are two in particular; irritating and boring weapons and frustrating platforming. There are three main weapons in Armed and Dangerous. A main machine gun that is so darn effective and auto targets so well that it almost makes all the other weapons useless. A rocket launcher that is to effective and can make the later levels easier than they should have been. (Great for shooting snipers and just a trek back to the pub for a reload. Yes you reload at a pub,) And the Landshark gun which releases a great white shark that somewhat slowly eats you opponents in a hilarious manner. The Landshark gun is loads of fun. So much so in fact that I often found myself risking my neck to use it rather than a more appropriate firearm. (It is however pretty good at taking out machine gun nests.) The rest of the weapons are either boilerplate (sniper rifle), useless (mortar) or silly and useless (instant Black Hole). As for platforming there is none, only some simple jet-pack scenes to break up the monotony. The game also pretends to have squad elements as you control three characters two indirectly. Ignoring this and simply fighting with your main guy is highly recommended. While the cut scenes are funny and very tasteless (and in one cannibal scene borderline racist) I was more impressed on the voice work during the fighting itself. It never seemed to get old (How rare is that.) The graphics and gameplay get better as the game progresses and new weapons become available. An overall fun romp I find myself still picking up Armed and Dangerous after completing the game. Gotta love that Landshark gun.
