Retail Box ArtSarge's Heroes 2 is a sequel to the PlayStation's mediocre Sarge's Heroes and there's good news from the front. This sequel is much improved, and not just in graphics, in gameplay too. Sarge's Heroes 2 concerns a renegade blue spy named Brigette Bleu who has stolen the plans for a new "biological" weapon from the evil Tan army. This weapon weakens the plastic in army men bases, so this mission is of paramount importance. It's up to Sarge and his partner Vicki to rescue the spy and stick it to the evil Tan army once again! Played in an over-the-shoulder third person perspective Sarge's Heroes 2 pretends to be clever. Its levels take place in the "real world" and use all kinds of props like soda cans, pencils, etc., but the game is really just about blowing things up. The action is fast, furious, and pretty fun, but, to be honest, lots of shooting games have done the formula better. Though the game's graphics are worlds better than the original PlayStation game, it isn't up to the level of games like Quake III: Revolution on the PlayStation2. The game is also hampered by an extremely poor control scheme. You can get used to it, but everything is so sluggish and unresponsive, you might end up putting ol' Sarge on permanent KP duty rather than play any longer. --Andrew S. Bub
