Svenska PC Gamer (Aug, 2002)
Pandemic lyckas verkligen blanda de strikta regler som gäller allt som rör leksakerna Army Men (färgen, formen, storleken) med de moment vi förväntar oss i ett RTS. De passar också på att blanda i en rejäl portion humor som gör det mer uthärdligt att spela sig igenom. Resultatet är i vissa delar överraskande kul.
IGN (May 09, 2002)
The previous Army Men games seemed to have missed the mark but with Army Men RTS, 3DO caught a winner. Army Men RTS has hit on something -- it's serious, it's primal, it's wacky and it's fun, all at once. You get all the fun of RTS fundamentals combined with the kitsch appeal of plastic soldiers.
GameStar (Germany) (May, 2002)
Army Men RTS ist ein angenehm überraschendes Echtzeit-Strategiespiel. Zumindest für Leute, denen die epischen Giganten des Genres nicht ganz geheuer sind. Putziges Szenario, leichte Bedienung, witzige 3D-Grafik und überschaubare Kampagne sind genau das richtige für den kleinen Eroberungshunger. Profis dürfen freilich keine strategischen Innovationen erwarten. Die Menge an Einheiten ist ebenso überschaubar wie ihre Wegfindungs-Intelligenz.
Te beperkt en eenvoudig voor de hardcore real-time strategen, maar wel een geslaagde poging om het plastic soldaatjesgebeuren over te brengen naar dit genre. Ideaal voor wie altijd eens een RTS heeft willen uitproberen of voor wie wachtte op nog eens een echt goed Army Men-game.
GameSpy (May 10, 2002)
RTS's simplicity won't please veteran gamers, but it fits the type of audience likely to pursue the Army Men theme. The title executes well and runs smoothly with accessible system requirements. The graphics aren't cutting edge, but do a good job depicting the plastic soldiers, and sport some nice special effects. We encountered no crashes when playing, and the net code is outstanding. Although Army Men RTS doesn't integrate GameSpy as seamlessly into its multiplayer setup screen as some other games, it works great even on a dial-up connection. And, for all the seeming attempts to cater to a more casual gamer, we found plenty of experienced opponents online. Army Men fans can be pleased Pandemic did a competent job, although picky real-time strategy experts should wait for the next tour.

Pour être complète, la série des Army Men nécessitait la partie construction. On pourra désormais assurer des batailles en 3D à travers salles de bains et nains de jardin, construire ses bases et fondre du plastique à tour de bras. Un jeu non exempt de défauts, mais idéal pour s'initier au genre.
GameSpot (Apr 16, 2002)
The Army Men franchise has been very successful for 3DO over the years, yet few Army Men games since the original have made it to the PC. It was probably only a matter of time before an Army Men installment let you control an entire brigade of those little green plastic men in a real-time strategy game, which is exactly what Army Men: RTS does. The game originally debuted on the PlayStation 2, but Army Men: RTS feels right at home on the PC. That's no doubt partly because it was created by Pandemic Studios, an experienced developer of real-time strategy games. Army Men: RTS maintains the broad appeal of the series, as its basic design makes it very easy for players to pick up and enjoy, though die-hard fans of the genre will find it frustrating at times.
Army Men RTS does not attempt to expand the existing bounds of the real-time strategy genre, yet playing this title is quite enjoyable. For those who want an “RTS-lite” experience, this release fits the bill exactly. What this game has going for it is easy accessibility to all players, clean if unspectacular graphics and sound, and fun environmental settings. What is missing is sophistication, innovation, and challenge for those with the most virtual real-time strategy experience. If you yearn for the simple battle pleasures of childhood, without having to worry about losing little plastic soldiers under your bed or under a stack of other toys, this one might very well be for you.

Army Men RTS seemed to be fast and stable, only I found a few bugs (?) such as tanks can't fire at air units, you can create only four unit groups, and some pathfinding bugs when units get into groups, etc. Simply I didn't like it :) Army Men RTS could be a nice your "first RTS" game, but I have no idea why I should to play just this game :)
Although having only one side to play makes the game easy to learn, it also sucks a tot of potential out of the multiplayer game, which is inflexible enough as it is. Army Men: RTS is not as bad as it could have been, but neither is it as good as It should have been.
