Any Army Men 3DOer's here?

I'm trying to reunite everyone from the Army Men series, and well, that question stands.

I think Army Men was released by 3DO after they became a software only developer I think my friend had some of their games on Playstation or N64 one of the two.

Well, I didn't see a "General 3DO chat" for like the Company, I know this is used for the old system, but it's the closest forum I can find to 3DO, lol, and reunion, I mean by all the fans of the Army Men games.

Hmmm ... I'm not sure if there are many fans of the Army Man games here. We rarely talk about them. I personally feel that it damaged 3DO in the end, saturating the market w/updates & ports of games that were never very critically acclaimed to begin with (although evidently they did sell)

When they had a console of their own, Studio 3DO churned out some truly fun and innovative games. Heck, even the ones that weren't that good (ex-Phoenix 3) at least were trying. I get the impression that w/the Army Man games 3DOy got lazy and stopped trying hard.

The only Army Man games that I was ever curious to try were the Air Attack games.

I feel they got lazy with Toys in Space and the Sarge's Heroes games, though most of them were fun.


but the Air Combat games were fun, so was Army Men and Army Men II, and can't forget the World War series.

Is Army Men similar to Toy Commander for the Dreamcast? I have played Toy Commander but never Army Men.

Pretty different from what I remember. Though I haven't played Toy Commander in a while.

On topic, I think Army Men 3d and Army Men: Lock and Load are awesome. Great for multiplayer!
