Hey everyone it's Johnny! Review Time!
I just purchased and finished G.I. Joe Rise of Cobra The Video Game for the Playstation 3 console system. Let me start off by saying that the game is great and if you have not picked up the game then hopefully this listing will help you decide.
The game takes place after the movie and DOES NOT reveal anything from the movie other than the introduction of the main characters featured in the movie. It has alot of appeal for hardcore fans and newer fans alike. The game takes place in 4 different "Areas" and each area has 5 levels all together. The game features single player and co-op play simular to an arcade style game. So, at anytime a second player can jump in to fight off the Cobra hordes. There are mini-bosses and some very difficult gameplay aspects that I feel both Gamers and Tankers can enjoy.
The game itself has wonderful gameplay which has been compared to Contra and many other arcade style games. There are very few buttons so it's reletively easy for just about anyone to jump right on in. There are also collectables in each level which reveal information about Cobra or Joe OR even locations of other members. The gameplay is smooth but can definately be improved on.
The CONS:(Ok, so here is what everyone wants to know.)
Rise of Cobra video game definately has it's flaws. First off you'll notice that the graphics are not up-to-par. They are good but for $60 you expect great quality. Next is the glitches, more than one occasion the game either froze, got my character stuck, or just went completely black. You also have alot of camera problems in the game which inhibits the player from seeing around corners or even seeing the level itself. The camera makes it quite tough to back track and find points or collectables. The collectable are poor. They only include 4 PSA's a collection of game art, and file cards with useless information, there is nothing that makes me want to keep collecting. Last and definately not least is the BANTER. There is just too much chatter between the characters and by the end of the game you really don't care about Cobra Commander, you just want to kill Dataframe!! (DATAFRAME ISN'T EVEN A REAL JOE CHARACTER!! WHAT HAPPEND TO MAINFRAME!?)
The game has a few problems, but after you look over and get used to the graphics, the camera, and the annoying banter, you actually have a really great game. There are a great number of characters to play as and each one of them have uniqe qualities making the gameplay fun and entertaining. So hopefully this helps some of you Tankers that were unsure on the game overall. Now you know, and knowing is....part of the battle. YO JOE!

Thats what I wanted to hear, just bought a 360 ROC version,(wanted a ps3 version but was sold out) at my local Blockbuster/ Gamerush during lunchtime. I was tired to hear down to the bottom reviews from people who arent Gijoe fans or very nasty critics from "gamers" for the lack of gore and more violence ( like if Gijoe could compare to Gears of Wars or Ninja Gaiden Sigma) , and also the camera or anything wrong they want to throw at it.
After dinner, gonna enjoy my game as the fan and real gamer I am. Thanks for the review

I want it but have to make a choice...game or upcoming wave 3, C1...I opted for the figures. Mainly since it's a movie based game, a lot of movie games tend to go on clearance or price drop quite quickly.

This is one of those games where I knew I'd love it regardless of it's flaws. It would have to have been nigh unplayable for me not to love it. Almost finished with it, and ready to give the DS version a go...
Not only are you cripplingly ignorant, you whine about it as well.

I'm waitin til Transformers Revenge of the Fallen & GI Joe go down in price. Lower than $20. They're both on the top of my want list but I never pay more than $20 for a game. They're worthless before you know it.
