Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops
Top Critic Average
Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops is a title that should have stayed on mobile. Simplistic and short levels, awkward switch from paid options to free ones, and earlier gameplays on mobile take away from console experience.

Tiny Troopers:Joint Ops is brilliantly captivating. Meant to be played in short bursts, but interesting enough to grab you for prolonged periods. Even the awkward voice acting can't turn you away from the rest of Tiny Trooper's charm.
Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops is a fun game that will be best enjoyed by gamers looking for a simple twin stick shooter.
In the end, Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops is a fine twin-stick shooter that's best enjoyed in short bursts. The game is pretty lengthy, but the sameness of most of the missions starts to wear thin, especially if you don't play on the hardest difficulty level in the latter half. The title may not have microtransactions, but the grinding nature doesn't help alleviate things if you want to power up your players. Despite this, Joint Ops is fun, and the cross-buy and cross-save nature means that it is accessible almost anywhere. For those with a twin-stick shooter itch to scratch, Joint Ops isn't that bad of an investment.
With a simple accessible campaign and a whole host of collectibles and zombie modes to obsess over, Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops is certainly not a bad game. It's reasonably entertaining and doesn't suffer from any major technical issues, but it lacks the depth or uniqueness that would propel it beyond 'just okay.' This is a title that is cute and fun when you aren't interested in thinking too hard and just fancy turning your brain off for ten to twenty minutes, but it's unlikely to set anyone's world on fire.
It doesn't lend itself to prolonged play but it's perfect for a little time killing.
A good value for a pair of successful mobile games that come to PlayStation in their most complete form.
Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops exists as a console port of two similar mobile games, which bring with them basic but relatively enjoyable gameplay. If you're looking for something simple and not so taxing, this isn't a bad buy for ten dollars.
If you enjoy humor and pint-sized heroes, grab this game.
There's no denying Tiny Troopers Joint Ops: XL offers a lot of bang for its buck - over 60 main missions and a ton of undead-slaying quests see to that - and its bite-sized nature fits Nintendo Switch down to the ground, but ultimately it's an exercise in quantity over quality. There's fun to be had in its caricature take on war, but its light sprinkling of other genres and low-rent presentation is retro for all the wrong reasons.
