    Movie License = 0 development effort and attempt to sell the game on name alone.

    Turn around...
    The entire movie is fail. Why revive a range of dolls aimed at children from what, 40-50 years ago for a movie aimed at adults/young adults? I would say that they were leeching of the franchise but wtf?

    Title sounds like a bad pun. Rise of the Cobra. Like in snake charming.

    Stay away from this game, very crappy and boring as hell.

    Actually GI Joe was made in 1964, the doll atleast. Go Wikipedia!

    Anyway, Transformers, Batman, Superman, and a range of other things were aimed at kids and became successful movie franchises. Even an Avatar (the Airbender or whatever its called) is being made by M. Night Shamalan.

    Anyway, the game got mediocore reviews. Better to get something like CoD5 or the Conduit for shooters.

    Review for the Xbox 360 version that is basicaly the Wii version in 720p.

    The review says that it is a good old-school style game.

    "Review for the Xbox 360 version that is basicaly the Wii version in 720p."
    Do be so sure until a real Wii review comes out

    Look at X-Men Origins Wolverine..... Wii and 360 not the same
    Or Dead Rising - not 100% the same

    *they might put in zombie poodles and parrots in the GI Joe on Wii.. or WII-EYE Joe
