Welcome to the GI Joe – Rise of the Cobra Game JAVA review.
If you don’t know what GI Joe is you are either very old or been a hermit for the last 20 years! The game obviously is based on the movie of the same name and the movie based on the toy action figures!
There game follows the movie story line but clearly cut to vaguely related action sequences from the movie. The graphics are up to date but the sound as usual lacking. As a side scrolling shooter game at its core it does work well, smooth and jerk free. There are quite a few moves you can get your character to do and you can also switch between them. Rolling and switching weapons or characters in a simple fashion is a feature that sets it apart from the other platformers. However it does get fiddly at times.
Reminds us of Batman – The Dark Knight except with slight smaller character graphics.
I have not finished the game yet since it is quite long but overall it is not a bad game and fills in the time quite nicely.
