the only problems with army men ive had is that they listened to the complainers who didnt know jack Cry u know the people who said they need better graphics and stuff. well i liked how they were proggressing adding new things every time. Then Sarges heroes came out god it sucked they changed the feeling of it being a toy soldier game, to a war game. It didnt feel like toys any more and dont get me started on how hideous they made Sarge. Too add salt to the wound look what they did with the rts. When it came out i was so happy. My favorite top down game into a rts. (when i was real lil and looked at the back of the box wantin the game. I thought it was rts game.Thats how i got alot of ideas,but thats another story)But they changed the graphics completely(hated those laser bolt looking things that came outa the guns.I liked the lead looking bullets from army men originals 1,2,3),Brung in Sarges heroes.Point is they started good then screwed up royally Angry.

I wonder if they'll make a better kinda game that doesnt suck for the PC and X360, it'd look cool and probably with all their army men games would have nice plot. Maybe if they made Army Men: toys in space in 3D or something like that  Huh, well maybe even a 1st personarmy men shooter!!!  Grin

i would rather see Total Annihilation 2 being made than another army men game, sure army men 1 and 2 were fun, but as more came out the more it started to get stupid.

maybe i will try to find army men 1 and try to get it workin in xp Grin

I would love to see TA2. Unfortunately, Cavedog went out of business years ago, so unless someone really wants the rights to a title that's been dead for ages, I don't think it'll ever happen.

In all honesty, I haven't played in ages. I should really pick the game up again sometime.

Still, the game was certainly unique in many respects. Unfortunately, I've never seen an RTS game lend itself to standoffs and stalemates quite like this one before; the infinite supplies of resources simply means that all players will tend to buiild up "invincible armadas" and "Impenetrable fortresses" rather quickly and easily. I have played against AIs in skirmish games for 3+ hours before I was finally able to make a reasonable dent in their forces that I could exploit for a win... And that's only because the AI is a bit stupid about how it distributes its rebuilding efforts after an attack. I can't imagine what this would be like against a human player; I imagine it could go on for weeks without a resolution.

Mind you, this all backs up the plot they put forward for the game, what with it being a galactic war that has lasted millennia with no clear victors. Wink It also does nothing to express the sort of joy I get from waltzing my Commander into an enemy base and capturing every building and unit in sight. Grin

Theres a TA remake.. I think it's called Super Commander or something.

No wait! It's Supreme Commander! The developers for TA are making this game and it's so cool. They even kept the original outline, you start with 1 Commander, and hence the name Supreme Commander.
