Black & White 2

Volcanos feature in this god sim as one of four epic wonders. Here, some joker has managed to erupt three at once.

Disaster: Day of Crisis

An accident at a supposedly 'dormant' volcano, Mt Aguilas, forms the plot of this opinion-dividing Wii game.

Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis

We won't pretend to have played this fairly obscure point and click adventure - but all the trailers featured this rather impressive blast.

Surf's Up

Good god, how did this make it in? Irritatingly, because it's the best example of the situation we find ourselves in today in Europe - the skies black with acrid smoke, the sun obscured by clouds of suffocating, lung-irritating ash....

    As I'm looking out my window on a sunday morning in Scotland right now I see hellish dark grey skies and people outside are choking to death on the murderous ash that blankets the air... Oh well, I bet I can fit in a couple more hours of Resi 5 before I too succumb to poisonous ash.

    If you watch FOX you'd think Europe went all Fallout/Metro 2033... ...just got back from a walk during one of the most pleasant days yet.

    I agree with 64DD war of the monsters volcano eruption was fairly cool it was the second best disaster you could cause in my opinion (first would be the big ass earthquake)

    +1 Lethal Lava Land was an awesome level in SM64. As for the Volcano, I'm in Scotland and its looking rather grey today
  • Solid_Gabriel - April 17, 2010 2:14 a.m.

    Super Mario 64 Lethal Lava Land's volcano should be on this list...

  • RonnyLive19881 - April 16, 2010 8:36 p.m.

    My favorite is the explosion in Super Mario Galaxy. Best volcano explosion since Death Mountain!
