Gaming Nexus: GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra DS Review

Gaming Nexus writes: "I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed GI Joe the movie. After suffering through the likes of Star Trek, Transformers 2, Wolverine and the remainder of the summer's watered down, retro-exploitation drivel I didn't think another dumb 80's toy movie would make much difference. GI Joe bucked the 80's remake trend by being nothing but a dumb toy movie and reveled in it, forgoing any pretense and concentrating on being a pure, unabashedly campy action flick. The writers understood that their source material didn't have any real gravity to it so they focused on what it was about-backyard action figure antics that made you feel like a kid again. Video games have been trying to capture that feeling for decades, but does GI Joe fare as well on the DS? After playing through GI Joe on DS, I've found that the game also tries to recreate some 80's nostalgia, but the comparisons only hurt the game and the execution has some serious issues." (G.I Joe: The Rise of Cobta, G.I. JOE The Rise of Cobra, G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra, G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra, Nintendo DS) C-/A+
