Wenn man überhaupt von einem wirklichen Kritikpunkt sprechen kann, dann ist es der etwas zu niedrig angesetzte Schwierigkeitsgrad. Denn bis auf drei Missionen sollten die meisten Stages kein Problem darstellen. Abgesehen davon kann man Army Men: Air Attack durchaus als gelungensten Vertreter der Reihe bezeichnen.
IGN (Nov 23, 1999)
Unlike its predecessor (Army Men 3D), Army Men Air Attack is a smooth looking game with a lot of fulfilled potential. It brings the air aspect of the Army Men universe into play, and creates a for more intriguing aspect for players who simply wanted more out of the Army Men series. It's not the end all be all, but it's straightforward fun and should by no means be over-looked this holiday.

Voilà un très bon jeu ! La technique épate, le gameplay est un vrai régal et le vaste champs d’actions à accomplir apporte pas mal de diversité. Seule la durée de vie peut paraître un peu légère.

Egal ob alleine oder gegen einen Freund – Army Men Air Attack macht dank der ungewöhnlichen Einfälle einfach Spaß. Die Möglichkeit, aus den Größenverhältnissen witzige Einfälle zu ziehen, wurde gut genutzt und sorgt für ein unterhaltsames Spielvergnügen. Da der Schwierigkeitsgrad ab der Hälfte merklich anzieht, sind auch geübtere Spieler eine Zeit lang beschäftigt. Und die Option, Aufgaben auf verschiedene Arten zu lösen, reizt zusätzlich, es noch einmal zu probieren.
While Army Men Air Attack helped pass by a few spare hours I much preferred the ground warfare of the original game. Stealth is what action games are all about these days and blindly flying headfirst into an enemy base is just asking for trouble. What it all boils down to is that Air Attack is a pure arcade shooter. It's fast. It's furious. It packs a punch. It's brawn without brains!

3DO has been milking the whole concept of little plastic army men as real-life soldiers for quite some time now. The PC has seen a couple of Army Men strategy games, while the console systems have received some weak games, such as Army Men 3D and Army Men: Sarge's Heroes. But you shouldn't give up on the Army Men series just yet. Army Men: Air Attack is a mission-based helicopter shooter that actually makes the little green guys fun to play with again.

Desert Strike meets Toy Story meets Micro Machines. Geen spectaculaire graphics, maar wel een boel meligheid.
PSX Extreme (Dec 11, 1999)
In the end Army Men: Air Attack seemed like a good game but it fails in my opinion. It doesn't feature enough variety to keep me or the average gamer going. Although it features nice graphics and the overall game doesn't deliver what I hoped it would. Maybe only worth a rental if you will.

Ever wanted to take Army Men and fly them around, gunning down your enemies in super-powerful choppers? Too bad, because 3DO already has a game like that, and it's ready for you.
The Video Game Critic (Dec 10, 2000)
Air Attack game reminds me of a whimsical version of Desert Strike, but it does get a bit repetitious. At least there's a nice two-player split screen mode that lets you and a buddy compete or cooperate together. There's nothing wrong with Air Attack, but it's nothing special either.
