Between aiming like a ten-year-old girl and repeating the same levels more times than my dumb cousin went through sixth grade, I started to wonder, even aloud, if Sarge and Co. might not be better off confining their adventures to a non-interactive cartoon or big-screen adventure. But, as always, that was forgotten, and all forgiven, when I got my mind wrapped around one of those amazing Army Men scenes. In this case, Sarge crouching behind a chocolate-frosted doughnut while Plastro's men returned fire from a rapidly ripening banana in somebody's mom's refrigerator, then climbing stacks of American cheese slices and franks like they're Mt. Suribachi and the Pacific Islands are on the line.
If you have ever liked an Army Men game in the past then this game will likely keep you happy. It's a lot more exciting then Army Men: Green Rogue that's for sure. If you've never like the Army Men games or are on a limited budget you may be better off looking elsewhere. This is the best of and average series.
Diesr Titel der Army Men-Reihe ist wohl das bisher beste Spiel mit den grünen Plastikfiguren. Beginne damit, den Küchentisch ein zu nehmen und sichere das Tor, aus dem die feindlichen Soldaten kommen, was eine umgefallener Becher ist. Comic und witzige Texte giebt´s hier alle Mal. Auch spielerisch wird hier Können erfordert, ranschleichen, in Deckung gehen, aus dem Hinterhalt angreifen, eben auch sehr taktisch. Die Grafik Kann sich auch sehen lassen. Explosionen und Lichtefekte sind recht eindrucksvoll, diese sind mit einem Motion-Blur-Efeckt untermalt.

3DO has sent so many waves of Army Men units out to slaughter that morale wasn't running very high for this latest Sarge's Heroes. Still, with full GI patriotism, I signed on for this tour of duty, from which I knew there may be no return. The catch of playing plastic soldiers simply isn't enough to overcome the fact that the Army Men titles haven't grown. We've probably spent more time with 3DO's titles than we ever did with the figures themselves – and with limited results.
Past installments of Sarge's Heroes have weathered pessimistic reviews to enjoy adequate sales. Perhaps it's something to do with the series' motif, which takes players back to younger years, where dropping the plastic playthings into the blender or microwave provided nearly unrivaled excitement. Whatever the case may be, 3DO has been more than happy to bring each installment in its Army Men series to multiple consoles, and this time around, it's the PlayStation 2's turn. Army Men Sarge's Heroes 2 is by far the best-looking Army Men game, but annoying gameplay quirks ruin what could otherwise be an enjoyable experience.
The relatively decent graphics, fine character animation and easy gameplay make Sarge's Heroes 2 a surprisingly playable Army Men game, but that isn't saying much. It's far better than Green Rogue, but so is a kick in the "dangling chads." Why does 3DO keep spitting out these unnecessary wastes of space? We don't know. But we do know that solid control and decent graphics don't automatically make a game good. Truthfully, I would rather go to the local carnival and see the spider-baby.
Music and sound are middling at best. Sadly, its content and delivery are, too. We've been unimpressed with the Army Men series as a whole, although there are a number of half-way worthwhile titles in it, too. Unfortunately, Sarge's PS2 debut is not one of them. Aside from its mediocre visuals, this bomb barely makes a bang. Poor control and a general disregard for good game design relegate it near the bottom of the action game barrel.

Let’s see…I’ve now played Sarge’s Heroes 2 on three systems (N64, PS-X, and PS2), and I can safely say that I’ve had my fill. This one features improved graphics, some new levels, a revamped training mode, plus a few other extras, but nothing to warrant playing this game a third time (or ever, for that matter). Uncle.
En conclusion et je le regrette, je dirai la même chose que les deux épisodes précédents. Un jeu moyen, trop moyen surtout au moment où les joueurs PS2 découvrent des titres comme Gran Turismo 3. Il reste dans la même médiocrité que ses compères même si on sent qu'il a été un chouillat plus soigné. 3DO exploite le filon parce que les jeux se vendent, vous expliquer pourquoi ils se vendent, je n'en ai aucune idée. Bref, je vous le dis encore, ne tombez pas dans le piège marketing de l'éditeur ou dans le packaging attirant, ce jeu est bel est bien situé dans le "trop moyen". Économisez pour vous acheter le volant GT3 plutôt que de mettre de l'argent dans un jeu qui vous amusera 2 minutes et qui sera tout juste bon à caler une table par la suite.
