If I were to say anything other than no, i would be lying. It is very fun, recommended if you have no other new games to occupy your time. Cool if you rent it from whatever means you are able/prefer.

Its your call buddy, nobody can really tell you if a game is good or not due to individual difference in tastes and levels of acceptance, although there are generally levels of normal threseholds... i.e... a majority of people will like COD or GOW or Halo... etc... where as a minority will like something like Hannah Montanna or My Horse & Me.

My personal feeling is this is well and truly a game for Gamerscore addicts or those wishing to re-live nostalgia from their youth... i fall into both those categories but i cant really say i'm enjoying the game. I would recommend a rent and if you enjoy it, then decide whether to buy it or not.

Cheers

I could write several paragraphs about developing suicidal tendancies after playing this game for a couple hours...but I will go with the simple answer....


No

It is a decent repetitive 3rd person shooter. Nothing more

i've only played a few levels of it so far but its not terrible terrible. its more entertaining then some other shitty gamerscore games that leave you falling asleep. the only big downside to this game is the aiming. i dont even know how to lock onto something, it just does it for me. i would rather be in control and pick what i want to shoot at it as opposed to having no choice.
but oh well, rent the game and decide for yourself

Strange game and the game save points are awful. If you die towards the end of a level you respawn at the beginning. As for the aiming and camera angles, they are very irritating.

It's in my top 5 of worst Xbox 360 games to date.

I know this thread is old, but it is near the top, so no harm in putting in my 2 cents, doubt the OP will be back but this may help someone else.

I absolutely loved G.I. Joe as a kid, to say I don't still like it now would be a lie. It is old and corny, but it is still one of the best cartoons to date, especially when you compare it to the garbage that is on saturday mornings now I even enjoyed the movie quite a bit.

My first impression of the game was OH MY GOD I payed money for this? Although it was $2.50 for a rental, but still. A little bit into the game (almost done with the Arctic levels) I started to get the hang of it, and got over the graphics (which are like a 3/10). There really isn't a storyline per say, it is one mission to the other with in game voice over to fill in the story. There are some cool things to be found, like the characters... there are quite a few to unlock and most play a bit different. I think the biggest draw is the nostalgia and the points. Please don't buy it, unless you see it for $5 in a bargian bin somewhere, but if you aren't absolutely harsh on all games not titled Halo, Call of Duty or Gears of War, it may be worth a bit of time. There are about 100 games I could rattle off that are better, but there is still some fun to be found here. If I were to give it a fair rating writing for someone else I would give it 3 or 4/10 but I have actually started having a bit of fun with it and could give it a 6 or so. The only really bad thing, which is a critical aspect, but something I don't really care about because of the reson I rented it is the aiming/targeting. It is attached to the RS and locks on to the nearest OBJECT first, which is not always an enemy. It has caused me to die quite a bit, even on casual, but whatever. I've played my share of bad games, and this isn't even close to the worst... but it is something I think most people should probably skip.

Its an Ok game at best, much better with a friend. If your a fan of GIJOE there are some great one liners in the game that are a throwback to the original cartoon. Like "these bubbles will give you trouble". I actually enjoyed the game more once I got the hang of the bad camera and aiming. The play-style has potential but it needed online play, smarter aiming and a better camera system. Also they need to lose the 1st player only achievements. A rent for sure, bargain bin for huge GIJoe fans, maybe, no, maybe not.

im 32 yrs old and an old school GI JOE fan, but my lord I played this for 30 minutes unlocked 1 achievement, and felt obligatd to put it right back into the GameFly envelope to send out tomorrow. This looks like Super Contra or something on the Nintendo 64 or SNES. horrid. Cameras are awful too. But if you can stand it, go for the 1k!

This game is a solid rental. pretty fun for a GI Joe fan like me. Repetitive but fun in its own way. Not a purchase.

It's one of the easier games of 1000 points that I know... Terribly repetitive but I too am a GIJoe fan of the 80s. It was very nostalgic to see the characters they couldn't use in the new movie but could throw into the game.

Get it if you are running out of games to play. Its pretty easy and not too time consuming. It's not that bad, definitely playable. The people that think this game is making them suicidal haven't tried to 100% the earlier Tomb Raider games or Cabela's Alaskan Adventue. Its pretty fun and I would say rent it if you just want some easy gamerscore or are a huge fan because it is pretty funny and it does make fun of itself at times, especially the cutscene you get for buying all characters.

wow that is definitely not true. This game is 10x better than F4. I am admittedly a GI Joe nut, but I like this game a LOT better. This really should have been an XBLA game

This is not an awful game but it can be very annoying. It really does not involve any strategy to achieve the points but will acquire some time. If you are a fan of the old television series then give it a shot.

lol, man some of u guys are way too harsh on G.I. Joe:RoC. I'm assuming some of the comments are by people who assume the game is bad because its a movie tie-in.

Its not that bad. Its not good, but I've played much worse than this. I'd say its fair (read as: meh). Could've used a little refinement.

The reason I'm kinda liking it is because of its fan service. This game draws a lot of its inspiration from the old 80's cartoon and toys featuring a bunch of the original characters that weren't in the movie and the plot itself is based around the M.A.S.S. device which was one of the original cartoon miniseries. It is how the movie should have been instead of the POS it was.

If u decide to buy: don't spend much more than $10. Its an easy 1000 gs but the game is awfully repetitive and sometimes frustrating (half the characters you can get are useless. Snake eyes sucks in this game )
