JoeBattleLines forum member WNightBlade reports here that he visited a “Preview Event” for Electronic Arts and saw some of the G.I. Joe video game first hand. According to his account, it is definitely third-person shooter, mostly arcade-like in nature, with fairly basic controls and unlockable costumes/characters. The level he was watching featured Snake Eyes and “Roadblock” (though it may have been Heavy Duty).
He was not wild about the end result, which if I’m not mistaken is to be expected with pretty much everyone in the fandom in regards to movie licensed games, especially ones produced by Electronic Arts. Regardless, I’m keeping an open mind until I get my own first hand account Saturday in New York, then we’ll see what I think.
A big thanks to WNightBlade for sharing his experience!
