    Holy fucking shit! :shock:

    This is the one of the lowest reviews I have ever seen coming from Gametrailers or from any mainstream critic...

    Damn, critics need to be as brutally honest when reviewing games as this dude...

    I :clap: him....

    I suggest everyone watch this review to see how shitty this game is....

    Pay close attention to the final 25 seconds of the review for laffs...

    Hmm, it reminds me a little of Neo Contra.

    If the game worked properly it looks like it might have been worth $20 to play with a buddy.

    EDIT: Gotta say that I completely hate what they've done with GI Joes but I love that the review showed the PSA announcement with the guy using the giant metal tweezers to pick up the power line, it was always my favorite.

    I really wish the movie would bomb at the box office and all the plans for future sequels would be scrapped. Sadly I am sure that will not be the case.

    That coming from someone who worshiped Gi-Joe as a kid. I watched the 1987 movie almost everyday. Hell, I still listen to the opening song when I work out.

    Anyways, that game looks terrible. Just about as bad as the movie looks.

    The game and the movie sucked do to the fact that Sgt. Slaughter was not in it:

    I have a theory that these kind of reviews is what we get when the publishers don't pay the reviewers their kickbacks.

    Because I faintly recall seeing an almost identical game, with almost the same flaws, get almost triple the score that this game got.

    No Gung-Ho or Leatherneck either and also WAY to much emphasis on Snake Eyes.

    I think my biggest issue is (surprise surprise) they seem to have dropped the "Real American Hero" aspect from Gi-Joe. Not a big deal to a lot of people here but it is to me. At least we will always have the old cartoons.

    Nothing new could top those anyways!

    I want to know what the hell they did to the Cobra Commander. Stupid looking plastic skull mask thingies aren't cool. The visor was way cooler.
    Also the grunts were always quite distinct from run of the mill evil black suited henchmen, so they made them black suited henchmen in the new movie for some inane reason.

    Yeah, I really hate his look. So is he supposed to be some crazy evil genious now or something?

    Part of his appeal in the cartoon was that he was a blundering incompetent coward, it added in comic relief.

    COOOOOBRAAAAAA RETREEEEEAAAAAT RETREEEEEAAAAAAAT!!!!!!

    I know that new GI JOE animated movie showed that he was only acting like a blundering coward to throw his enemies off their guard.

    He proves this by wiping Red Square off the map and killing GI JOE member Bazooka.

    He then makes the biggest blunder of all by locking himself in an impenetrable panic room and leaving the control system to his orbital super-gun free for Duke to reprogram to shoot right down on his head.

    Also they killed Storm Shadow and Zartan. Makes me wonder why it couldn't have been Dr. Mindbender or one of those other losers like Tomax or Xamot.
