Review G.I. Joe: Strike

Brandon Girod
8.0Excellent
Good graphics, fun gameplay
Repetitive gameplay, limited environment
I was a huge G.I. Joe fan when I was a kid, but sometime in between then and now, the franchise has grown a sour taste in my mouth. Mostly because everything the franchise has dipped its fingers into recently has just been bad. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised when I first played G.I. Joe: Strike for Android. Sure, it borrows HEAVILY from One Finger Death Punch, but that’s what makes the game good.
For anyone who doesn’t know OFDP, it and this game only require one finger to play, though you’ll probably want to use two since you’ll be rapidly pressing both sides of the screen in quick succession. You play as Snake Eyes who is fighting against Storm Shadow’s legion of Arashikage ninja army.
Gameplay involves your character being placed in the center of the screen with flanking white lines. When ninjas pop out, you’ll tap the corresponding side of the screen when they cross between those lines in order to automatically attack them with really flashy looking moves. The first enemies can be taken out with one tap, but then you’ll be required to tap specific combos and other gestures in order take them down. You can also find random cards that can be equipped to your character and used while in game.
There is nothing particularly offensive about this game because it copies the original game so precisely, but there are a handful of annoying aspects of the game. First off, there is an arbitrary limitation system put into the game that will prevent you from playing too much consecutively without spending money. The environment also remains pretty static for a long period of time.
Overall, G.I. Joe: Strike will appeal to a younger crowd and anyone who enjoys just mindlessly pressing buttons that do really flashy things when you press them. There isn’t anything too annoying about the game, and there is plenty of fun to be had with this game.
