    A guilty pleasure - I'm enjoying it more than I probably should.

    Rated on August 09, 2009 by bnmp

    I gave in to impulse and wasn't too happy about it after the first level or two. Even now, my head can see the flaws - checkpoint/save system, camera, etc. After getting into it a bit more (15+ hr...

    I knew I should not have bought this game. I saw the reviews. But sometimes reviews can be wrong, right? Actually, they are. Because this game doesn't deserve the 4 or 5 it's got on websites, it deser...

    If you are a Joe fan, you owe it to yourself to give this game a chance. It kinda grows on you.

    Let me start by saying that this is not a great game. It is good, once you get to know it, but it isn't great. The difficulty is punishing on the harder settings due to the lack of traditional check...

    This game really isn't as bad as most people make it out to be!

    Amazing They came out with a movie followed up by a terrible game.

    Rated on August 14, 2009 by Madcows

    I have played some bad games but….Damn! This is easily the worst game I have played in a long time. It is like a Contra 3D but in a GI Joe format on a next Gen system. The Graphics suck, the sound suc...

    Much better than the movie. Would make a good Contra model.

    Rated on February 23, 2010 by ackpack

    I really liked this game. I'm not sure why the reviewers didn't like it as much as they did, but it was fun and addictive. The story line was closer to the comics and cartoons than the movie itself....
