Video game website Pocket Gamer got a chance to have some hands on the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA for Nintendo DS, and gives a report of their findings here. The site reports, “It’s hard to say whether the game will appeal to people aside from the success of the film though. Everything was certainly functional, and playing three or so levels as Snake-Eyes – who turns invisible when you dodge – was fun. But in the way of such licences, your interest in buying and completing G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra looks likely to hinge on how popular the film is.”
Essentially much of the same feeling seems to exist with the DS version as with the console versions… licensed game with some limitations, but probably fun for the fans of the franchise. Well, that’s me, so I’m still looking forward to it.
