Ah, GI Joe. I can't tell if this and the movie are TOO silly or not silly ENOUGH.

With all of those glowing bullets and over the top arcade style, this totally reminds me of Sunset Riders.

iight, Wild Bill!

I dunno, it looks like it's hard to see stuff.  I would've gone with a top-down Ikari Warriors view.
 
Also, if this was a real G.I. Joe game, nobody would hit anyone with any of the weapons.
 
If the movie is even 1/10th as good as this game, then it will be 10x the amount of all kinds of awful.  (straight math, g)

I was hoping this game would be decent because it has been too long since the last good G.I. Joe game.

At least they're consistent with their pissing on my expectation that a G.I. Joe movie/game might be good.

Simpsons Game did the same thing with only giving player 1 achievements in co-op.  I don't see where the logic is in that, nor why EA continues to do it.

Oh hell yeah! XD
 
Ok, watching this now it actually seems like something with the makings of a relatively decent (800points'ish) XBLA game (that wall portion was totally Contra). As a retail release though, this is just sad.

The Fortress fight reminded me of the first boss of Contra. In fact, I keep getting a 3d-ish Contra game while watching this.

This game reminds me of an ill conceived version of a Contra game with how the level's progress and how that fight against the fortress were conveyed while missing the fun and challenge said franchise.   To think they are charging a near full price of this title is disturbing.

So clearly I'm not the only one who was getting a strong Contra vibe from the game, from the whole CO-OP thing to the overall level layout and weapons design.
 
Too bad the game looks totally broken though, as expected.
