Army Men Sarge’s Heroes 2 is the second game from the Sarge’s Heroes series. This one is for Nintendo 64, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and Game Boy Color. I got it on the PlayStation 2 and it is better than before. The graphics looks great for a old PlayStation 2 game and the gameplay looks much better. This is about a blue female spy name Bridgette Bleu who bring back General Plastro from from the humans’ world. Now those two got something to stop the Green Army.

It is up to Sarge to stop them from doing their evil deeds. In this, you can play as Sarge and Sarge’s girlfriend, Vikki. Sarge uses that same gun called the M-16, and Vikki uses the crossbow. In this one, you are fighting against Tan Army, Robots, and some Tan Zombies. Sarge got his same old friends from the first Sarge’s Heroes game. This one left off from the first Sarge’s Heroes game. The graphics looks like from Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly and the gameplay runs like Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The graphic are well done, and it doesn’t glitch like the last one. It already updated, and it is not a problem. The gameplay runs far smoother than the last one.

Army Men Sarge’s Heroes is a really good game to play and really funny as well. You are not killing people in this game. You are killing little toys soldiers and bugs. There is no blood, just plastic. In the world of Army Men, the males are little toy soldiers and female are Barbies.This game is about General Plastro, the leader of the Tan Army and the Tan Army is destroying everything in their path. General Happy Grimm, the leader of the Green Army, and his troops are attempting to stop the Tan Army. Sarge and his friends must General Plastro from taking over the Green Nation, but Plastro has some sneaky ways of stopping the Green Army.

I got this retro kind of feeling for Ancient Rome 2. It reminded me of the old Sierra City Builders, like Caesar, Pharoah, and Emperor, and would spend hours on these, especially the Pharoah/Cleopatra set, but Ancient Rome 2 seemed more like a streamlined version of Caesar III. While some of the aspects are similar, the combining of the fire and police departments into one unit is rather nice, and not having to appease the gods with festivals is great, too.
I only played the trial, so if that came up later, then I missed it.

Twisted Metal

20545_1306858744khfcpTwisted Metal is a old classic PSone game. This game came out around 1995. That was when the PSone was getting started. This one of best classic PSone games of all time. This game takes place in the streets of Los Angeles on Christmas Eve, 2005. The person who started the Twisted Metal competition is know as Calypso. Calypso will give anything to the winner that he or she wants to have in life, but one of them has to win the Twisted Metal competition first.

The last person standing is the winner. There are characters to chose in this game. The characters are Sweet Tooth, Warthog, Outlaw, Darkside, Hammerhead, Yellow Jacket, Roadkill, Spectre, Mr. Grimm, Crimson Fury, Pit Viper, and Thumper. In this game you are shooting up cars or trucks to win the Twisted Metal competition. You got some special weapons. Rockets and machine guns on your car or truck. This game does not save. This uses a password. If you put in the password correctly, it will leave off when the last time you played. So don’t forget to write down your password, otherwise you will forget. The graphics are kind of like the first Need For Speed game.

When I decided to take on this casual building game based on a very important time in China’s history, I expected something pretty amazing, but what I got was a frustrating recycle of the Roads Of Rome with an Asian paint job. We have a desperate emperor looking to defend his country from northern invaders, Mongols, instead of Germanics, a young man trying to prove his worth, this time an architect, instead of a general, and a princess caught up in the middle between her family and the man whom loves her.
