The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Ammut] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.

There are very few muds which ever captivated me like ArmageddonMUD
did. The atmosphere and culture of the game are rich and
documentation is everywhere. This is by no means a simple DikuMUD
clone, this is an entirely different experience from your normal hack
n' slash. Roleplay is enforced, which can be difficult at first,
however it grows easier as you lose a few characters to the harsh
game world. Death just means you can create an entirely new concept,
from a simple mercenary for hire to one of the most feared mages in
the world.

I would recommend Armageddon to anyone who is looking for something
new, something unusual and unique. You won't be disappointed giving
it a try, just make sure you ask one of their many Helpers if you
have questions about the game.

As with any mud, Armageddon has its flaws. Some say it is staff,
some say it is the community. I can attest to butting heads with
staff when trying to push through a game or history changing
plotline, but for the mostpart they deal with such requests
professionally and promptly. The community is full of talented
artists, writers and is brimming with imagination. Everyone I have
met outside the game has been really nice and down to earth.

My only complaint is the expectation that your character act
'realistically' when it comes to sexual relationships. The amount of
mudsex going on in this game, which could be considered cybersex, is
ridiculous. It is frowned upon to play a character who is celibate
or uninterested in sex, because it is such a big part of the game.
If you do participate in such ventures, just know that someone is
very likely logging every action you take or word you speak.

While it is true that there are many players engaging in mudsex, it
is in no way obligatory. Many of my characters, and successful
characters at that, have been celibate. If your character encounters
sexual pressure you can opt to fade, (both parties simply agree that
it happened without acting it out) rather than say no, without any
penalty. If that is not your experience you should file a player
complaint.
