Game Details

  • Genre: Action Adventure
  • Number of Players: 2
  • Rated: T

G.I Joe: Rise of Cobra played like an updated version of Ikari Warriors. The sad part is that I did not mean that as a compliment.

 

Right

  • Good use of the G.I Joe film license with a mix of the cartoon to flesh things out
  • G.I Joe Public Service Announcements were cool easter eggs
  • Got to play as Destro & The Baroness which was kind of cool

 

Wrong

  • Way too repetitive
  • No challenge
  • Unlocking your favorite Joes was a pain in the ass. I never even got to use Snake Eyes but got stuck with stupid Shipwreck instead
  • Camera control were passable but had moments where it made playing the game very frustrating.
  • Terrible A.I

 

WTF

Why waste such a good franchise like G.I Joe with such a crappy interpretation.  Using the stupid movie accelerator suits did not make the experience any better even if you played the G.I Joe music during their use.
