There’s plenty to moan and groan about when it comes to Army Men: Major Malfunction, but the fact is that it’s just not much fun to play. The camera is a headache waiting to happen and the rest of the gameplay mechanics don’t fare much better. It’s a shame considering that this is a series that I actually used to somewhat enjoy playing. Bad graphics, boring levels, and poorly constructed environments don’t help in the fun factor either. Stay away from this one if you’re above the age of ten. If not then this may be worth fifteen bucks.

With its terrible controls and ugly, sometimes embarrassing, presentation, Army Men: Major Malfunction is a game that everyone should avoid. Don't be fooled by the budget price, either--there's little value to be had in playing this game.

We like Army Men as much as the next guy, which is probably not that much, really. The concept of little plastic man fighting giant toys in a huge, oversized house is sound and brings to mind battle scenes in Pixar's Toy Story. But poor presentation, the lack of any multiplayer modes, repetitive gameplay and frustrating controls doom Major Malfunction from the very start. Little kiddies may enjoy the game, and you may enjoy the $15 price tag, but don't buy this game to tide you over until Gears of War. In fact, don't buy this game to tide you over until anything.

In fact, it's hard to imagine how this brain-frazzlingly awful series ever came to see yet another instalment. While this isn't the low-point of the series, the Army Men games traditionally hover so dangerously close to rock bottom that it's impossible to limbo underneath these barriers and muster some entertainment from them. Let's pray that this really is goodbye for the uncontrollable plastic men of doom - a 360 update, where enhanced in-cruddy-visuals ensure you can actually see the stink-lines emanating from the screen doesn't bear thinking about.
