I love it. (PS3) It reminds me of old-school Contra-just running and shooting and blowing stuff up. but I also have a 9yr old to play it with, I don't know how great it would be if I was just playing it solo, but the 2-player co-op makes it a blast.

I like it. It's fun. It's got the old school Contra feel.
I've unlocked Duke's classic uniform.
I wouldn't have paid full price cash for it, but I had a gift card to use up.

I played it on PS3 last night over my brother's apartment. He's got a nice TV (47" HD). We had a blast. Maybe it's just more fun with 2 people. We we shouting and talking about how to attack the Cobras. It's a lot of fun. It's the closest thing he and I have done to getting down in the floor with the figures when we were kids.
All the characters have subtle differences; the different abilities make the game a lot of fun. Snake-Eyes is a great player but his abilities aren't ridiculous, which is nice. The weapon systems of each character are unique. And it's fun to find out how each character works.
I'm sorry some tankers haven't enjoyed the game very much. It might not have been so fun for me if I had played it alone. However, the only thing I would do to improve the game is to make it playable by 4 players at the same time.
My wife really enjoyed playing with me. She was Scarlett. We had a lot of fun. I hope more people enjoy the game.
Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?

I think it is a fun game. It is not great but it has an old school arcade shooter feel to it that you can play with a friend. It also has enough of the little things to satisfy Joe fans, i.e. the cartoon theme plays when you power up in the Accelerator Suits, the old PSAs, etc.
If you get the game at TRU this week, you can get it, in essence, for $30. The game is on sale for $39.99 but if you spend over $30 in Joe merchandise, you get a $10 ROC themed gift card.

I've enjoyed it. It's pretty much Contra for the new age in gaming... run and gun... just run and gun

Toys R Us this week has the video game for all systems for 39.99 plus you get a $10 promo code so you basically get the game for 29.99. I was up in the air about buying the game until the employee at my toys r us said that all joe products including the games are valid for the $10 promotion gift card, so I ended up getting one. Just a heads up.

its alot of fun, just great to be able to play as your favorite Joes. Could be a little better, but it is better than no game. Good tie ins to the classic stroy lines too. Own it if you are a Joe Fanatic like me

It's a fun, mindless game - solo action sort of sucks because the CPU player is, on occasion, still hiding behind a wall when you need him to be shooting. Also it tends to grind a little bit but switching characters is fun.
I like that each character has their own distinct weapons, and the different bosses are good thus far. I just beat Firefly and Storm Shadow last night.
Have to admt I think this would have been a WAY better game had it been done like Pandemic Studio's Mercenaries - but I'm still liking it.
The best combo I've found so fair is Shipwreck and Heavy Duty. And by best I mean that it fits my style of play, I'm sure everyone else has their own duo that they prefer.
My one major complaint is that there should have been some great unlockable content. Would have been cool to be able to see Resolute characters as unlockables. Also would have liked to upgrade individual characters weapons and abilities.
