  1. Though it lacks any original mechanics, and has a somewhat shallow premise, Sarge’s War is very finely polished. So polished, in fact, that you may just slip up (grasp the pun?) as a gamer and ignore the game outright.
  2. 80
    One of the best in the series with exciting gameplay and clever mission objectives.
  3. 40
    Improvements to the solo adventure and the addition of some basic multiplayer modes elevate the game above its predecessors, but it can't turn the tide of battle in the franchise's favor.
  4. Bomb-collection out the wazoo, a grim but bland story line, and everything old packaged as if it were new. [June 2003, p.75]
  5. It's by no means an original experience, but it still manages to entertain from start to finish. Army Men fans are going to love it.
  6. The backgrounds are beautifully rendered and the action runs nonstop. [May 2003, p.138]
  7. For all the improvement Sarge's War shows over its predecessors, it's still only average at best. [May 2003, p.86]
  8. There are literally dozens of better third-person-perspective, run-and-gun shooters on the market right now.
  9. Any aspect of the game that apires to distinction is negated by mediocrity. [May 2003, p.126]
  10. The game is still traeemark Army Men clunky, but you can look past the sloppier qualities - it still smacks of low-key production value - and enjoy the ceaseless combat for its base appeal. [June 2003, p.56]
  11. 25
    The games controls are clunky, the camera is spazzy, and the action stutters like crazy. [May 2003, p.41]

    If your new to the army men series this is a good entry point. Graphics are ok, not the best game cube has to offer. Story and gameplay is pretty good, as long as you get this cheap you should be happy. Full Review »

    Army Men: Sarge's War is a great 3rd person shooter, it has a fun and pretty challenging campaign, and some great split screen versus modes with great maps, an awesome selection of weapons, graphically its great, and the sound is fantastic, the controls are great, the story revolves around Sarge's attempt to get revenge on the Tan army for destroying all the Greens, it's an enjoyable shooter I would highly recommend.

    If your a fan of Army Men you won't be disappointed with the game. Multiplayer is especially great.
