This is the worst game I have ever played!!!
PostedApril 13, 2011
Let me start off with saying that I have played many amazing games made by EA like BBC2 and Crysis2. I did not think it was possible for a company that put those 2 games out to have any anything to do with such a piece of junk like this. I was embarrassed for EA for even having their name on it. I am trying to be honest as i can about all this . The gameplay is horrible, your players are like a mile away from you and look like ants with bubble guns,lol.. Also the acting and voice overs are like watching a 8 year olds school play. The graphics are a joke and I have seen better on super nintendo. If you are looking for a shooter that looks like the old nintendo and sega box games then this is your lucky day.. It was like pulling teeth just to play it and if this was the last game in the world I would no longer play......da KING knows

Cobra wins unless there is a patch
PostedAugust 8, 2009
My title says it all for this game because while it can be fun and was entertaining to play co-op, there are some issues with the controls/interface. Setting the driving controls to the second option makes using the vehicles a lot easier, however, in normal or infantry mode, the aiming takes some getting used to and still doesn't always lock in to where you want it the first time. Also you don't have control of the camera and while about 70% of the time this is ok, there are times when you should be able to rotate the view to make moving/firing/etc easier. The size of your character and the detail you can see changes depending on whether or not the camera zooms in or out. The boss battles are ok, although some areas are just mass amounts of guys you have to kill. A great patch would hopefully change/add camera control, tweak the vehicle usage, tweak the aiming, and also tweak the cover system. Still though, if you remember all of the old joes and cobra characters you can see how they have been reimagined along with the vehicles and whatnot. The game could be better and overall isnt horrible or total crap. If you want to run around with a friend on one tv and have an 80s flashback to when you played with the old figures and had epic battles and watched the cartoons, try it out; if not a fan of the original stuff, or expecting like halo or killzone or whatnot, then pass on it.

Is this it????
PostedAugust 5, 2009
I know alot of G.I. Joe fans, will be disapointed as i was when i put this "So Called Game" .In my PS3, Maybe i had higher expections,But it was a real let down.The game play is ok, But the players are soo small u think your palying with little army men!!!! The battle armor power up is just plain crazy, The targeting is just plain bad.You have to almost stand on top of some of the items to hit them,I'm a true fan of the comic & i will always like the cartoon, But i think the devlopers should have taken more time to create a game that fans would not be able to put "Put Down".But it is what it is!!!!! You don't start the game with a full team, You earn battle points to buy new members of the joe team.Over all i'm sorry that this game isn't to my liking,But maybe others will disagree.
