On the verge of a long-awaited peace between the Green and the Tan, rogue elements of the Tan Army draw Sarge away from his squad. Out in the field, Sarge discovers a new and diabolical enemy - Lord Malice - equipped with weapons that threaten the very existence of the Green Nation. With his squad destroyed, Sarge becomes a one-man army out to stop Lord Malice at all costs. Enter a gritty world of toy-on-toy combat...

Army Men: Sarge's War sees plenty of plastic mayhem unleashed on your Xbox. Are you prepared to melt your way through thousands of tan coloured army men in order to ensure that green reigns supreme?

Before you start the game proper, you are strongly advised to practice your shooting and manoeuvring skills on the training levels. Throwing those grenades is not as easy as it looks, and you don't want to be messing around in an emergency trying to remember which buttons to press.

Once you kick off in the full game it soon becomes apparent that this, in essence, is like any one of a thousand similar Medal of Honour style game. Sadly though the graphics and gameplay are not up to the challenge and you'll be hard pushed to have the energy, or the patients to want to see this game through to its conclusion.

It's not that this is a bad game, just that it offers nothing (and I mean "nothing") new to an already crowded genre. While the price is cheap enough, there are plenty of other much better executed games in a similar vein. And, even if you are a follower of the other games in this series, you're going to seriously question adding this to your games cupboard.
