Cubed3: G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra Review

Cubed3 writes: "As an inevitable tie-in to one of the biggest box office flicks of the summer months, G.I. Joe on the DS has a lot to live up to for fans expecting that something extra after the movie experience. Descended from the popular line of toys that peaked in popularity in the 80s and 90s, and which has continued in some form to the present day, The Rise of Cobra serves as a sequel to the events of the live-action film. But is it another licensed dud or should it receive a commendation?

As you may expect from a game of this type on the DS, The Rise of Cobra keeps the story on the afterburner. Long story short, Heavy Duty, part of the elite G.I. Joe special ops group, gets captured by the commander of the enemy group from the movie, COBRA. With the five remaining team members at your disposal, you have to rescue the big guy and stop the commander's schemes. The story's played out with painfully grainy and static character art adjoined with plain text between levels, so chances are it won't be on your mind for long..." (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) 6/10
