Een klein lichtpuntje is de Two player-cooperative mode waarin je lekker samen kunt knallen. Hoewel, wat heb je daar aan? Kun je met zijn tweeën een flutspel spelen, gezellig!

By all accounts Army Men: Green Rogue is a failure. The graphics are forced, the sound is average at best and the games longevity just isn't there. The biggest fault however is the complete lack of fun while playing the game. Being forced along the path at the computers pace is the biggest fault of all as there is no real sense of control. Throw in some dodgy aiming controls and what you end up with is a game that should never have gone past the initial design stages at 3DO. This game is much better off left on the shelves. If you really want an Army Men game you would do much better off picking off Army Men: Sarge's Heroes 2. Army Men Green Rogue is very poor.

Dieser Titel der Army Men-Reihe hat zwar eine annehmbare Grafik und läßt sich relativ gut spielen, überzeugt aber nicht wirklich. Wenn man bedenkt, daß es damals im Sandkasten doch mehr Spaß gemacht hat, wäre es doch nett, die alten Figuren und Panzer wieder mal auszupacken. Zwar gibt es in diesem Shooter einige Waffen und Spezialattacken, aber betrachtet man, wie die einzellnen Schüße, in Zeitlupe umher fliegen, wundert man sich doch sehr. Etwas lächerlich, sind auch die Schreie und Texte der feindlichen Soldaten. Im Ernst, dieses Grüne-Männchen-Spiel sollte doch eher sorgfälltig betrachtet werden, bevor es in die Sammlung kommt.

Visually, the game doesn't pack much of a punch. In fact, the graphics often get in the way of gameplay. The perspective is such that objects in the distance are almost impossible to discern. When the screen gets chock full of enemies and their shots, things often slow to a crawl, as well. All in all, the world looks awfully generic, but not half as generic as the repetitive enemy hordes that assaults the player. Likewise, the sound effects and music are extremely generic. One wouldn't expect anything different from the developers of every other sub-par Army Men game littering store shelves.

Although I see where 3DO was trying to go with Army Men: Green Rogue -- it smacks of Ikari Warriors more than anything else -- the game trips, stumbles, and falls flat on its face. Repetitive, buggy, and downright boring, I can only imagine the type of people that would get real enjoyment out of Green Rogue. And I fear them. I can heartily recommend to everyone to stay away from this game, unless you rent it to see the nice FMV. In a word: ugh.

Air Attack, as per usual, is the only light among the Army Men games that manages to shine with any kind of quality execution. Unfortunately, now Green Rogue is here, to join its other fellows in trying to drown that one light out.

Although Green rogue is a very basic point and shoot action game with a few problems, it's not the worst Army Men title out there. If you like the Army Men series, you may want to check this one out. Otherwise, there's no reason to even rent Green Rogue.

Navigating through the game takes some getting used to as the left stick controls the character and the right stick, his weapons. Ironically, by the time you figure it out, chances are you'll be yawning and looking for another game to pop in the PS2 instead.

Är man två kan man på ett helt annat sätt hålla ut mot de taskigt animerade plastsoldaterna som kastas emot en i våg efter våg. Anledningen till att man klarar av att bekämpa dessa plastmissfoster är inte att man åt sin gröt på morgonen, utan för att man är en gen(plast)manipulerad supersoldat! Så det är i formen av en syntetterminator som man inser att - implementerad Co-op Mode till trots - det finns ytterst lite att hämta i 3DO:s senaste förstärkning Army Men: Omega Soldier. Tyvärr!

Army Men: Green Rogue is the latest addition to 3DO's growing library of Army Men games for the PS2. In many ways, Green Rogue pays tribute to classic arcade shooters of old, like Ikari Warriors or Commando, with a scrolling field of play, droves of hostile enemies, and an amazing amount of gunfire thrown in your direction. However, Green Rogue's cumbersome gameplay makes it a much more frustrating game than those that inspired it.

All in all if you can get passed the horrid control, you may find an entertaining game. Old school shooter fans may even eat this up. This still doesn?t mean the game is worthy to grace the PlayStation 2, either from a graphical or gameplay standpoint. Portal Runner seems to be taking these steps, but Green Rogue falls short of even being a good title.

Avec cet Omega Soldier, la série des Army Men compte aujourd'hui pas moins de 15 titres, toutes machines confondues. Ce dernier opus se présente comme un shoot à la troisième personne, mais sa mauvaise réalisation et la médiocrité de son gameplay en font un titre véritablement décevant. A éviter !

Seldom has a videogame bored, depressed and insulted me the way "Army Men: Green Rogue" did when I took it for a spin with a bud. It's a decent idea, which 3DO has executed as badly as it could possibly be (which might explain why it comes on a CD-ROM instead of a DVD-ROM). Stick with "Air Attack 2".

Army Men: Green Rogue offers up some furious action with plenty of enemies on the screen, but its numerous problems keep it from being a proper homage to the games that so obviously inspired it. As it stands, it is a sub-par action game that could have been a contender for those desiring a quick action fix -- if only some of the complications had been worked out before its release.

After playing Green Rogue for a small amount of time, it's obvious that this game was rushed out the door and I can't understand why. Did 3DO feel that releasing two Army Men games at the same time wasn't enough? Was it really necessary to get this one to market that quickly? Luckily, 3DO made it easy for you to choose which one to buy. Army Men Air Attack 2 is clearly the winner of this beauty contest. Sarge's Heroes 2 is the runner up and Green Rogue is the fat girl with the moustache.

Ask yourself this folks. With all the videogames out there (old and new) that you haven't rented/bought, or games in your collection that you haven't even bothered finishing yet (come on, we all have a few of these skeletons in our closets... literally!), why on Earth would you waste cash/time/grey matter on "Green Rogue"?

Army Men: Green Rogue is a take on the old school vertical-scrolling shooters gone horribly wrong. Its simplicity is shattered by terrible control and the fun factor diminishes at the speed of light. Someone needs to recycle this plastic and make something more useful, like a toilet paper holder.

Pour conclure, un seul mot : HONTEUX. Proposez un jeu de ce style aux possesseurs de PS2, c'est réellement se moquer d'eux. Ce n'est pas la peine de penser l'acheter, ça serait une offense à votre PlayStation 2. Maintenant, dirigez-vous vers votre bac à jouets et ressortez tous vos petits soldats, si vraiment vous voulez retourner en enfance ce ne sera pas en compagnie de ce jeu. Ne faîtes pas attention au packaging de l'éditeur, souvent attirant qui vous promet un jeu digne de la PS2 qui vous offrira de nouvelles sensations, tout ceci est purement spéculateur.

Top this off with almost non-existent level design, sticky scenery and a frame rate which beggars belief, and you’ve a game which is bad on a totally new level. Omega Soldier’s release doesn’t just highlight its developer’s incompetence with a C compiler, but 3DO’s utter contempt for the consumer. Omega Soldier? Omega Straw more like.

As you may remember from my previous Army Men reviews, I’ve been pretty flippant in my dismissal of the series. I just couldn’t resist the urge to savage what has become perhaps the most reviled franchise (at least by video game journalists) in history. At this point, though, I’m starting to feel like a jock picking on the Special Ed. students in high school. It’s almost sad, really.

Army Men, the cancerous cyst on the video game industry’s heinie, continues to grow more repulsive by the day. Need proof? Check out Green Rogue. And you thought the worst was behind us?
