I purchased the original Toy Soldiers following the positive reception, but couldn't get into it. It's not for a lack of desire for tower defense -- Plants vs. Zombies and Field Runners were, in their own respective windows of time, staples of my free time. Something didn't click though, and as such this one probably won't find its way into my digital collection.

Great review. It sounds like a lot of fun for those who are in to this sort of thing.

At the beginning of the video Brad says "this is the toy story games with more stuff and rife with 80s stuff, I think that's alright, yeah kind of a good thing."

Then admits he never watched Rambo, warns that the game is mostly stale mates, watching brad take down 4 tanks with a foot soldier using a bazooka, and gives the game 4 stars....

Brad made Star Trek Online look fun... so when he gives something 4 stars, I expect it to be -1 star.

This is a 1 star game and Brad's opinion has gone to shit. He's still on vacation.

Great fun game, The jet controls can be configured in the options to a inverted southpaw which make them just like a regular flight sim., Glad the helicopter controls are so easy to pick up and play. Seems the guys forgot checking out the options on the main menu in the quick look. I expected the last boss to be hard as the first toy soldiers boss'es were all hard bastards to defeat. Over a i enjoyed this game, would recommend this game to anyone who wants a fun shooter.

woah that was a short review... good review though. But for some reason tower defense games never worked for me.

Kind of annoyed.  I've tried to watch this video now 5 times since last night and it simply stops at a random and different place each time.  None of the other videos do that.

Good review! I'll probably pick this up if I can find any time between all the games coming out.

Thinking that I must pick this up. I'll try the demo. But Rambo kind of has me sold already.

I bet Bastion would've gotten 5-stars ;)

O was sold on this game the moment I found out that Ivan Drago and Rambo were in it.

replayed some multiplayer offerings last night in the original Toy Soldiers, still incredibly fun. the addition of the commandos makes a huge difference from the small amount I played this morning it seems like the multiplayer is much more frantic than ever before as you switch from commando to turret and back. 
I can't wait to get some time to tackle the single player and the challenges.

This was the score I was expecting after yesterday's quicklook; fun, but not mindblowing. Hoping to pick this up sometime in the near future.

The first game had really cool avatar rewards as well. Pickelhaube and a gasmask

I still need to grab the demo for this. I'm intrigued by it but probably shouldn't spend the money since I still have some of From Dust, lots of Bastion, and tons of Steam games to play.

The Summer of 4-star games!

I only played the trial of the first Toy Soldiers game, and it didn't do much for me, so I don't really have much interest in this game. I'm kind of on the side of Jeff about this year's SoA releases in that, aside from Bastion, I didn't find the games all that interesting. I really look forward to this promotion because of how great the 2008/2009 games were, but this seemed to repeat last year where one game stood out to me, and the rest were decent, but nothing I wanted to invest my time into. I'm glad that people are really into these games though, because I really like the creativity that these games have, and hope that they all become successful

Hate myself a bit for not considering buying this game before I read about the avatar rewards.

Hippie avatar would be awesome.

I really didn't get Jeff's problems with this game. Great review, mirrors my thoughts

The aesthetic of the game does make me feel that the developers put a lot of work into their sequel, but I've seen my fair share of tower defence and will probably hold off until it goes on sale(Assuming it ever does, Microsoft are weird with sales).
