Good gameplay + unique premise = A good buy
First, the premise is extremely interesting. The tan soldiers and the green soldiers are fighting each other in a war. General Plasto has disappeared and left commander Mylar in charge of Tan forces, which are as we speak, viscously attacking green territory. The story is continued with a mix of in game dialogue and extremely well done FMV sequences, and despite the simplicity of the plot, you will be genuinely interested in what comes next. The graphics are nothing spectacular, but are good for the time. The controls are rather simple, although new comes may have difficulty mastering them. There are a large variety of weapons such as flamethrower, grenades, mortars, rifles, etc that you can get. The levels, although sometimes repetitive, sometimes give a great military feel and often present interesting challenges such as getting through and clearing out an enemy minefield.
Well, the main problem i have with the game is that it's kind of creepy. Enemy soldiers will scream as their heads are blown off, or they melt into pools of plastic. The death scenes are creepy also (in a darkly humorous sort of way) such as Sarge being executed in an electric chair, death by lethal injection, and being transformed into what is best described as a plastic zombie.
The Bottom Line
An above average game that causal players will enjoy, although I wouldn't recommend it for kids.
