  1. 54
    The classic example of a superlative package with nothing inside.
  2. The smart control scheme virtually eliminates the control problems inherent in RTS console games, and the varied mission objectives keep the game engaging all the way through.
  3. The real joy of Army Men RTS is the creativity of the game. The cut scenes are downright hilarious, and the movie spoofs are frequent.
  4. Game Informer
    In terms of real-time strategy releases, Army Men: RTS is the definition of mediocrity. [May 2002, p.83]
  5. This isn't a superb game by any stretch of the imagination, but it also won't cause you permanent damage like some of the other Army Men games.
  6. 50
    Regretfully, Army Men RTS’s cleverly conceived combat units and resource system are quickly overrun by deadlier forces: lackluster controls and frustrating gameplay.
  7. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    After a few levels I found that it's harder to stop dribbling at the urinal than it is to destroy the opposition. [May 2002, p.106]
  8. This is aimed at the younger player so don’t expect too much, but it remains a solid introduction to the genre that’s easy to get into and fun to play.
  9. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    At last 3DO has delivered a game that really capitalizes on the Army Men idea, the childhood dream of commanding living regiments of those little, green, plastic, violent buggers. [May 2002, p.100]
  10. PSM Magazine
    A solid, no frills real-time strategy game that is easily one of the best Army Men games ever. [May 2002, p.26]
  11. It might not stick out as absolutely superb, but it's definitely sharing space on my shelf.
  12. Misfires by not tweaking the A.I. and gameplay as much as the graphics or the simplified-to-perfection control.
  13. The characters have character, and the story is quite good as well, which gives the game life, when the novelty of the gameplay starts to wear a little thin.
