Almost everyone has fond childhood memories of playing with small, green plastic army men?be it storming a sandbox or leading an assault on your little sister?s dollhouse. Army Men: Sarge?s War?the umpteenth entry in a seemingly weekly offering of games?is one of the best in the series with exciting gameplay and clever mission objectives.
Few toys are cooler than the little green men. Not aliens – toy soldiers. The kind that had their feet stuck to flat pieces of plastic in order to stand up straight. Pixar's Toy Story showed a whole new generation just how cool these guys really are. And 3DO's Army Men series carried on the coolness through video games.
Sadly, for all the improvement Sarge's War shows over its predecessors, it's still only average at best. Hopefully, 3DO can use this as a foundation for the future.
According to my stopwatch, Sarge's War held my interest for approximately 53.5 seconds. That's 41.7 seconds more than any other Army Men game! I love the detail in the CG movies and appreciate the direction 3DO is trying to go: but as improved as the gameplay may be, it still has a ways to go to be a serious contender for your dollar.
When publisher 3DO went out of business last year, many figured that the company's inviolable Army Men brand would simply disappear right along with the company. That was until budget publisher Global Star Software came swinging to the rescue and took over the Army Men brand. Army Men: Sarge's War is the first Army Men game to appear under the Global Star name, and it sticks to basically the same level of quality for which most of the other Army Men games are known. Unfortunately, that isn't really saying much, and considering that there are literally dozens of better third-person-perspective, run-and-gun shooters on the market right now, it makes it pretty tough to recommend Sarge's War.
