The plot is the exact same from the very first game, including the same ending, missions, and characters but its gameplay was changed to a fast-paced third person shooter without the squad mechanics.
The game was a commercial success, leading to the development of the Army Men: World War series.
Prepare for combat in an all-new 3D world where green and tan plastic soldiers have come to life!
You are Sarge, the Green Army veteran squad leader who’s a "shoot first, ask questions later" kind of soldier. Whether you’re dodging bazooka shots, melting attacking infantry with your flame-thrower, or leading your squad into an enemy bunker, you must do whatever it takes to bring down the evil Tan Army!
It’s real combat. Plastic men.®
The war and animosity between Green and Tan is so old that no one really knows why or where it all began. More to the point, no one cares.
Tan and Green have adjusted their economies not only to meet the demands of prolonged war, but to thrive from it. Over the years, the war has stabilized to the extent that all sides can benefit from it with "acceptable" casualties.
But now things have changed. Strange unexplainable weapons have begun appearing within the Tan arsenal. Shiny objects that reflect the sun and burn a man at great distances have appeared.
The Green command is understandably upset. These devices seem to be under Tan control, and that threatens to tip the balance of power. Green command knows that this would certainly plunge them all into an uncertainty that no one wants. They call on Sarge.
