MyWii writes: "Hot off the heels of the latest movie revival of the 'G.I. Joe' franchise, Electronic Arts shouts "Yo Joe!" as the stars of the 1980's action figure line return with the release of G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra for the Wii. Although of the same name, the game is not based directly on the movie, as its storyline kicks off from where the film left off. Seeing that the cinematic version was poorly received and movie tie-in games are traditionally average at best, expectations for this title were not terribly high."
