Expert Review

11 October 2009
  • Excerpt: While G.I. Joe The Rise Of The Cobra for Nintendo Wii doesn’t really involve any amazing new elements of gameplay, it does let you play as some of the characters from the movie, which is pretty cool in and of itself!

Decent movie game delivers cooperative bloodless shooting.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this action/adventure game is based on the movie of the same name and lets players fight against a terrorist organization known as COBRA. The graphics are cartoon-like and the weapons, firepower, and vehicles are over-the-top. In fact, players can enter a super fighting mode, with temporary invincibility and enhanced speed, which resembles a cartoon.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

5 August 2009
  • Conclusion: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is full of things that make you go "hmm." Why do midlevel checkpoints update your score but not save your game, forcing you to restart from the beginning if both characters die? If you're going to steal from Gears of War, why steal the slow-walking, earpiece-cradling mission updates? The game isn't all bad; there are a few moments of fun to be had with the simple combat system. But G.I.
  • Pros: A bit of cheesy-awesome theme music.
  • Cons: The camera is awful, So is the targeting system, Terrible voice acting and sound effects, Action is clunky and tedious.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra [Wii] Review

3 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Much like Static, who reviewed G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra for the Nintendo DS, I didn’t grow up with the toys/animations being a staple part of my childhood. To be honest, I thought G.I. Joe was one guy, but in the context of this game, G.I. Joe is actually a group of soldiers. Whether this is in line with the history of G.I. Joe, I don’t know, neither do I care.
  • Pros: Supports cooperative gameplay, Very simple gameplay (although this can easily be a negative too), No arbitrary motion controls (mindless remote waggling)
  • Cons: Sluggish load screens, Controls feel awkward at times, Cannot alter the camera view in-game, No multiplayer mode(s)

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

16 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Actionheltene fra G.I. joe er genopstået fra de døde og har indtaget biograferne. Det er EA ikke sene til at udnytte og de har derfor udsendt spillet G.I. Joe – Rise of the Cobra. Baseret på vores kig på Wii udgaven af spillet, så kunne de godt have sparet sig ulejligheden.

G.I. Joe: Geheimauftrag Cobra Review

11 September 2009
  • Summary: Sommer bedeutet Sonne, Freibad, Ferien und in den Tag hineinleben. Die heiße Jahreszeit macht sich allerdings nicht nur in den Temperaturen bemerkbar, sondern auch in den Medien. Die Geschichten werden oberflächlicher, die Politiker sind im Urlaub und keiner hat mehr so richtig Lust, bei 30°C großartig nachzudenken. Dementsprechende Kost wird auch den Kinogängern vorgesetzt, die den Tag mit einem Sommer-Blockbuster ausklingen lassen möchten.

G.I. Joe: Geheimauftrag Cobra

1 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Was, ihr wisst nicht, wer oder was G.I.Joe ist? Tja, da seid ihr hierzulande wohl nicht der Einzigen, denn die in den USA überaus beliebten Action-Figuren haben bei uns den lang ersehnten Durchbruch noch nicht wirklich erreicht. Ob die Actionpüppchen mit EAs Videospielversoftung des gleichnamigen Kinofilms G.I. Joe: Geheimauftrag Cobra an Popularität gewinnen können, erfahrt ihr in unserem Review. Was machen muskelbepackte Actionfigürchen eigentlich so den ganzen Tag?
