Army Men: Air Attack (Sony PlayStation 1, 1999)
About this product
|If you mess with the best, you'll melt like the rest in Army Men: Air Attack! So saddle up your toys, soldier, and head for the skies! The GPN reports a plot by the evil Tan Army to seize the Green Army's borders. Colonel Grimm expects your new Alpha Wolf Battalion to stop General Plastro's wicked invasion. Led by Captain William Blade, your mission is to pilot four helicopters (with pyrotechnic artillery) through the backyard, picnic, and beach terrain to stop the Tan in their tracks. Capture giant teddy bears, blow up sandcastles, and save Sarge from a melting by kids with a magnifying glass.|
In the third-person perspective Army Men: Air Attack for the PlayStation, you need the help of a co-pilot, so choose carefully from the following: Hardcore, who loves homing rockets; Rawhide, another rocket lover; and Woodstock, your machine gunner. While in the air, you can utilize a Huey, Chinook, Super Stallion, or Apache helicopter. An in-game map will help guide you as you grab power-ups, mission-specific characters, or world objects with the winch cable. Drop an apple, rock, or crate on the enemy to crush them. While you're at it, use machine guns, rockets, napalm, and flares to aid your fellow soldiers in their attack against the Tan's ground and air troops.
Many of the familiar types of characters from the previous Army Men titles are here as well, such as riflemen and flame-throwers for Tan Army infantry, wind-up robots, UFOs, and other ground troops. Along with jeeps, tanks, half-tracks, helicopters, PT boats, and even battleships and butterflies, the Tan will relentlessly continue the onslaught until you take them out. Also, look for killer bees, fire ants, and a dreaded lawn sprinkler. And you'll want to watch for Blue Spies -- mercenaries stealing supplies.
Play 16 campaign missions of bloodless, plastic army men violence in the one-player game, or team up cooperatively or competitively in split-screen mode with another player. Players may save their game progress during the Mission Debriefing Screen to load up later, or bypass it all by entering a password given after each mission. Set music or sound effects volume to your liking. Set the controls for the Dual Shock Analog Controller for maximum vibration realism.

Ready Aim Fire
The use of missles and machine guns from multiple helicopter platforms makes for a great PS shooter!<br>Army Men Air Attack is an attempt to restore the fun that the previous title (Army Men 3D) was supposed to capture while at the same time combining the FPS concept with the flight simulator based genres.<br>This is no aeronautical trainer, but the use of missles and machine guns from multiple helicopter platforms (Apache, Chinook, Huey) was certainly a welcome change. Green (good) and Tan (bad) armies once again wage war in the backyard scenery with Captain Blade at the helm.<br>There are a total of 26 missions, and although it could be conquered in a weekend (or one day) it was long enough and mildly challenging.<br>The scenery ranges from a Japanese garden to the Wild West. The chief villain is the evil General Plastro (maybe a reformed plastic surgeon?). The graphics are well, good for the platform and year. The sounds are equally appropriate yet nothing to fire up the surround sound for. A decent assortment of weapons, the ability to sling load (hoist things by helicopter) and the “minature” environment makes for an overall good game. One you may want to add to your collection for a retro weekend once you become overloaded from PS3 or XBOX 360 quality games.Read full review
