The game's bland, generic graphics, along with the lackluster control scheme and camera, show its mediocre quality. Playing through this poorly paced campaign felt more like a chore than something fun. The one bright spot of this rushed, unpolished game is the unlockable movies, PSA's and concept art. Unless you are a huge G.I. Joe fan, skip this game because it is definitely not worth its $60 price tag."
