Welcome to the roadmap for G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra. This game is a pretty linear third person shooter, where you can play as a vast array of characters from the G.I. Joe world. It is not the worst game around, and has some fun if repetitive gameplay. Most of the achievements are easy enough and shouldn't give the average gamer many problems.
Before you start you will want to unlock the secret characters. At the main menu press
to unlock Classic Duke and
for Classic Scarlett.
Next start playing through the game. Play through on Hardcore difficulty as this will enable you to get higher scores throughout the levels, and also to work towards Hardcore G.I. Joe
Make sure however that when you do the missions where you fight Shadow Storm, change the difficulty down to easy so you can definitely beat him. You can then replay after on Hardcore. These misssions are as follows:
- Arctic: Deckhouse Six
- Desert: Robot
- Jungle: Sludge
Use the collectible guide found here
to make sure you get all the intels and contacts, and also drive and operate the turrets in all vehicles. A list of their locations is found here
. To switch between driving the vehicle and operating the turrets hit
. Drive and fire them all for Gimme The Keys
and Turret Syndrome
There are also achievements for completing missions with two of a particlar type of soldier, so keep an eye on them as you could get some of them done during your playthrough.
After completing all the missions you will have the following achievements:
(These two are for the satellite strike minigames. You may have to go back to these as they can be pretty tough
And if you got all the collectables you will have:
Half The Battle
Lost & Found
There are a few achievements you will need a second controller for. Do 10 barrel rolls in unison for Double Barrel Roll
and play through a whole mission targeting the same enemy with both controllers over 50% of the time for the No "I" In Team
achievement. You will also get It Takes Two
for finishing a co-op mission.
The mop up on this game will require a running through a few levels. Go back to any levels you didn't get the max rank, to gain more battle points. Once you have at least 130 you will unlock Battle Master
. You will also most likely need some of the achievements for completing levels with different Joe combos, and maybe for completing a mission without going man down or with just melee kills. You could just run through mission two over and over to make it go quicker.
Also, don't forget to spend all of your battle points to unlock all of the character for 3 achievements worth 75
This is a fun little game, don't get me wrong it is not the greatest but will keep you entertained for a while. Some of the missions are pretty tough for a game aimed at kids, so the challenge will ensure you don't get too bored. Now you know. And knowing is half the battle!
