  1. With its engaging mix of humor, excellent graphics, and superior multiplayer mode, this is one "Army Men" game that's worth checking out.
  2. While severely problematic areas are easily discerned, the game's major failing is an all-over blah factor, a mediocrity of inspiration recognizable both in the underachieving technical facets of the title and the limiting non-gravitas of the overarching license.
  3. "Air Combat" isn't going to win any awards, but you'll be too busy busting caps at the tan army to even care.
  4. The graphics leave a little, well actually quite a lot to be desired, but with the addictive and entertaining gameplay and quality sound, you'll probably let that slide.
  5. 76
    An extremely decent game. It more or less succeeds in what it sets out to do, but this game wasn't designed to change the face of videogaming or anything like that.
  6. With the addition of four-player multiplayer, "Army Men: Air Combat" is the best game to bear the "Army Men" name - granted, that isn't exactly a tough feat.
  7. If you absolutely love to shoot things and don't have enough blast-o-thons in your personal library already, by all means, support this tired series.
  8. A great action game and is well suited for those seeking mindless, explosive entertainment. Just don't expect anything more than that.
  9. It doesn't have the longevity that we'd like, but it's one of the only games in the series to really make you feel like you're playing war with the plastic men you grew up with in a fun, satisfying way.
  10. 80
    Variety in mission types and two different worlds in which to fight keeps "Air Combat" from getting stale, and the easy controls make flying toy missions a simple pleasure.
