G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra review

 

EA and Double Helix released the G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra game alongside the movie. One of our reviewers takes on the arduous task of playing through the entire game so YOU don't have to. Check out the verdict.

G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra Review

 

The latest action figure movie tie-in hits the Wii.

Part of the intrigue and appeal of the 'G.I. Joe' characters of the 80’s was the eclectic mix of characters, abilities and costumes – something the 2009 re-imagining of the franchise has done away with in favour of a range of rather bland and...

G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra Review

 

Movie tie-in games are traditionally pretty poor- but EA has been hyping up GI Joe for some time now. They hired respected developer Double Helix, and c [...]

EA has tried to put it's fingers in too many pies with "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra". Rather than creating a product that works on each type of console, they've tried to harmonise the experience right from PS2 up to 360- which just doesn't cut it anymore.
