The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare – Review

The Mean Greens Logo

 

 

“The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare” is a 3rd Person Online Multiplayer Shooter from Virtual Basement and Code Headquarters Inc. for the PC and soon to be released on the Xbox One and PS4. In this game players are once again asked to choose a side Green or Tan as the did in the  classic 3DO Army Men Games & Signal Studios Toy Soldiers: War Chest but in a whole new way. When players jump into The Mean Greens they will be pitted against 9 other players in 5V5 online skirmishes with ten game modes spread across the game’s ten maps which provided a refreshing twist to game modes like “Team Deathmatch” and “Capture The Flag”. These battles are played out in areas around your house; the kitchen, the bathroom, the bedrooms, the freezer and everywhere in between and in The Mean Greens even in these place that you are familiar with you still will feel like you are going to war in a place you never seen before.

The combat In The Mean Greens is very lighthearted yet very visceral on the battlefield. When players touch down on the map they will have instant access to a machine gun, a sniper rifle, a shotgun, a RPG and finally a flamethrower but good aim is key. Players that think that they won’t need to be quick on the sticks will have their plastic comrade biting the dust more often than not if they’re caught slacking. The one thing players will love about The Mean Greens is that  here is next to no lag with the dedicated servers, so no one will ever feel cheated when it their toy soldier goes home to the big plastic bucket in the sky. The rolling mechanic will save a soldier’s life and will get the player out sticky situations fairly quickly.  The player can also with correct timing turn the rolling mechanic into parry and return fire to dispatch the opposition. The combat is very fast pace and rewarding as players and their squad mates scrambling to complete objectives like lighting birthday Candles,raising their flag to claim all the cookies among other wacky missions.

There are only a few things that may damper the amazing experience that is The Mean Greens one is the jump mechanic and another being aiming. The mouse or the thumbsticks if you playing with a control is automatically set in free aim mode, you can tweak the settings to fix this but then couple it with the jumping it can really be a pain because you have to focus on where you are jumping before you do so or else you will slide off the area you planned off jumping on. Players will have to spend some time adjusting and finding the best way to move around the level but combat is so fun and so addictive that they will want to master all the controls in now time to help out their squads during matches.  The only other problem with The Mean Greens is there is no single player campaign or scenario mode for gamers to play offline which some players may find as a deal breaker but others may not in this new gaming climate. The game has what some may call “OMG” or “One More Game” theory where players will play skirmish after skirmish without realizing that hours has passed. If one were to use a website like “Steam Spy” you will see that the “OMG” theory is in full effect and players are having a lot of fun playing with these plastic heroes.

The Mean Greens Maps will remind you of how amazing watching the “Toy Story” films and the feeling of into going into a Chuck E Cheese or Dave and Busters for the same time.The look and feel of the game is crisp and clean due to Virtual Basements imaginative use of Epic Game’s Unreal Engine 4, players will know these characters, maps, environments and sets pieces from Toys, Food, and Appliances from around their house but will feel like they are in a whole new world during their play sessions. These Maps are accompanied by epic tunes inspired by old school war songs like the “Battle Hymn Of The Republic” or “Yankie Doodle” and sound effects straight out of films like “Apocalypse Now” and “Full Metal Jacket”  If you enjoy war games and welcome a playful and imaginative settings The Mean Greens is just right for you. If you on the fence about the game due to its “Online Only” status don’t be these will be the easiest and best $9 to $15 you will spend on Steam this month with all the big releases still yet on the horizon please do not  sleep on Virtual Basement’s Ultimate Tour De Toy Chest.

Final Verdict:

The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare is fun filled 3rd Person Action Online Multiplayer Game the really breathes live into the Army Men game genre without being an Army Men game. Players who can take the time to master the challenging control system and get over the fact that the game is online only will be in for a highly addictive experience where their house is literally the battlefield and toys can still be their soldiers.

Jungle Rumble – PS Vita Review

Jungle Rumble Banner

Jungle Rumble is a 2D Real Time Strategy / Rhythm game for the iOS and now PlayStation Vita from developer Disco Pixel. Players take control of the group of monkeys, the Mofongo Tribe” as they fend off a neighboring tribe who is trying to steal all of the bananas in their part of the jungle. The game begins with a short intro cinematic and a tutorial on how to play the game. The game will also give a short tutorial whenever a new gameplay mechanic is introduced.

In the early stages of the game, the Mofongo tribe leader will teach you how to move around fluidly. The monkeys throw coconuts at their rivals and team up to fight bigger squads of enemies all while keeping the beat. The moves are placed on a four step rhythm, each representing a different beat of a conga drum.

When players get used to the basic game mechanics in the first act, Jungle Rumble picks up the pace in the second and the opposition will be come even more fierce. Players will have less time to complete levels and even more monkeys to deal with. When players end each level they will notice that their rating (gold, silver, or bronze) will be determined by how fast they cleared the stage, how many monkeys from their tribe are left standing, and did they dispatch all the enemies before grabbing the bananas and ending the level.

This is where the RTS elements come into play because the player not only has to time their moves to the beat but they also have to watch their foes before they get taken down. The third act will turn the story, as well as the gameplay, upside down and player wits will be tested like never before – but we will not spoil that for you here. The gameplay is fun, very upbeat, and addictive. The music syncs to every move the player makes while in-game.

Jungle Rumble’s user interface in the menus can be a bit daunting. Some players may find it hard to pick up where they left off in each section and will have to carefully tap the next level order to play. The game also keeps a very fast pace leaving some rhythm-deprived players out in the cold if they don’t time the beats just right.

These quirks aside, Jungle Rumble plays just as smooth as any other great mobile or handheld rhythm game out there on the market. The sound design is something to behold, as the game’s soundtrack completely syncs to the players moves and the conga drums add to the soundtrack as the missing instrument while you play. The graphics and art style are very stylistic and gamers will see the heart and soul that Disco Pixel put into the look of the game.

Jungle Rumble is a great hybrid among the many other games in the RTS / Rhythm genres. The game boasts a touching story, addictive gameplay, as well as an amazing soundtrack. The game has little blips that may slow down the game’s progression but the game is still wonderful to play. Jungle Rumble also has a bit of a learning curve that some players will have to get used to, though others may grasp in minutes. If you are looking for a new game to add to your PS Vita library or just want to try something different then Jungle Rumble is the game for you.

Final Verdict:

Jungle Rumble is a fun, cute, and daring mix of both Real Time Strategy and Rhythm game genres. The music and art style blend seamlessly with the gameplay to create an experience like no other. The game does have a couple user interface issues on the PlayStation Vita and the controls take a bit to get used to but all  in all Jungle Rumble is a blast. There is no other game like Jungle Rumble available on the market today and if you are a PlayStation Vita owner or an iOS user this is a must own.
