  • Summary: In a time of war, it's up to you to pilot your aircraft across enemy lines to attack the opposition and defend American ground troops. In the cockpit of either a chopper or fighter plane, you must lay down suppressing fire, shoot missiles at enemy bunkers, and deploy soldiers to reclaim lost territory. As you fight for your country, remember to rescue any civilians who are caught in the cross fire. See if you have what it takes to survive 16 missions over a variety of terrain, including frozen wastelands and palm tree-laden beachheads. Expand

    A surprisingly fun, challenging, and -- if you've never played the original Apple II games -- unique GBA experience that's well worth the 20 dollar price tag.
  2. The sounds of vehicles, guns and explosions are crisp and loud, perfectly suited for a game of this caliber (pun intended).
  3. Gameplay is intense, but the difficulty may be a little high for beginners. [Apr 2005, p.101]
  4. Being able to control both helicopters and fighter planes at least adds some variety to what is at times a fairly dry gameplay experience.
  5. Extremely slippery controls make handling both the chopper and the plane a chore. [Feb 2005, p.80]

    As a top down RTS game, Super Army War would have been great. But as a 2D side-scroller, this game is a logistical nightmare.

    And just in case Super Army War wasn't stripped down enough, there's no battery backup -- just a password system. It's true that portable games don't need to be as full-featured as console titles, but people have e-mailed me Flash games that are deeper than Super Army War (not to mention more fun).

    I was having great fun with this for about 5 days but then i just stopped playing it. it gets boring soon because you only have a chopper and plane to use throughout the 16 missions so it gets a little repetitive. Expand
