About this product
- Product InformationArmy Men: Sarge's Heroes lets you play the role of Sergeant Hawk as he takes on the Tan Army in a series of 16 missions. Over 40 different objectives must be completed, ranging from simple seek-and-destroy to involved reconnaissance operations. Players can also enroll in "Boot Camp" to practice firing weapons and work on combat skills before embarking on a mission.
As in previous titles in the series, the action is played from a third-person perspective. A map in the corner of the screen will help players find their way to an objective. Members of the Tan Army will try to thwart your progress every step of the way, so keep an eye on your health meter to know when to stop fighting and search for a Medkit. Also available on each level are ammo boxes (to replenish your standard-issue M-16), bazookas, flamethrowers, and sniper rifles.
Since you can't replenish ammo for the extra weapons, you'll have to take your shots carefully. Battle environments include real-world outdoor settings and indoor "alternate world" locales that include a giant bathroom, garden, sandbox, kitchen, and living room. Besides firing at everything that moves, Sarge can crawl on his belly, kneel, roll on the ground and climb ladders. Every hit makes Sarge move a bit slower, so it's important to avoid gunfire at all costs.
Up to four players can compete in one of eight multiplayer stages on a split screen. Players choose soldier color (green, blue, tan or gray) and difficulty level (easy, normal or hard) before deciding on victory conditions. Each mode differs in the number of kills needed for victory. "Family" setting is the easiest, with unlimited ammo and more default weapons to start with. Players can also opt to play multiplayer modes with teams or go for the default "free-for-all" mode.
The game supports the Rumble Pak for vibration feedback, the Expansion Pak for high-resolution graphics, and the Controller Pak to save game progress. Players without a Controller Pak can use passwords to continue the single-player campaign. Make General Grimm proud and rescue his daughter!

Sarge's Heroes, a great N64 kids game.
Shooters were in short supply during the N64 era. Sarge's Heroes wasn't at the level of Goldeneye, but it was a captivating game by combining lots of fun campaign missions with a multiplayer experience that was surprisingly fun. Shooters don't work well with 1 stick, but somehow Sarge's Heroes was able to make an exciting and almost funny experience out of limited control abilities. Running around a bathroom looking for your friend who's hiding on a rubber ducky just can't be boring.

All the fun of running around as an plastic armyman toy and shooting others
great game, happy I got it again! I was really missing playing it. Good game, not really a big thing in the past, but holds a lot of nostalgia.

Army Men: Sarge's Heroes
As me and my brother sat here discussing how to review this game we could not decide where to start other than; Army Men: Sarge's Heroes is an awesome game. Apart from being a good shooter for the N64, the plastic army men made the game irresistible. The little green, tan, gray, and blue men were so much fun, especially melting them!
The game offered a great campaign mode with a good/comical story of Green and Tan battling in their world and in another dimension (ours). Apart from Sarge their was a host of friends to battle with against the tan army and many different weapons to use; from flamethrowers, M16s, and bazookas! While the campaign was great fun the multiplayer was the real jewel providing endless hours of enjoyment as you battle your friends in various maps.
Of course reflecting on this game their are a few problems to a new player, mostly due to the N64's one joystick controller. The one stick when I was younger seemed to be no problem but after playing PS2/PS3 for so long and becoming accustomed to two analog sticks moving back to one is a real challenge! Another thing to overcome for myself would be the clipping that tended to plague games until fairly recently (and is still somewhat of an issue). Apart from these two issues there is really no problem with the game and the only bugs are rather humorous (such as if a grenade hits and enemy directly prior to explosion it will kill them) and the game is still overall and excellent experience and a good buy, there are many other Army Men games out there, but sadly 3DO no longer exists.Read full review

Army Men: Sarges Heroes is one of the greatest games i played as a toddler, everything in this game is so realistic, just the way you shoot to kill the tan soldiers are indescribable, great game for the kids and family, if you don't have it, BUY IT.

Really great game!
I decided to buy this game as my two boys 12 and 11 were interested in it. I still had my Nintendo 64 system, but had not purchsed many games for it before we went to the PS2 system. The boys were interested in it due to the fact that the plotline involves plastic army men - they wanted to see what the scenerio's would be. I had rented it one time several years ago and enjoyed it already then. It was as much fun as I remember! The kids like it because it has a pre-technology feel to it - back when games were a little more basic and the graphics not as realistic.
