No real strategy needed, just point and shoot at anything that moves. I do like how you really don't die, but just 'rest' for a moment and all is okay. A bit unrealistic on that point, but if I kept dying and having to restart the level then I'd be unhappy too. I've never been a real GI Joe fan, but the game was good enough that I understood what was going on and it was easy to pick up the story.
Graphics are a bit dark, but you can increase the brightness so it is better. You can switch back and forth in between characters during the game play. I think it would be more fun if I played it as a two person game
I guess I'm looking for a point and shoot game for the Wii like Doom on the PC. That was a great game! I have to say I enjoy the Lego games much more than this one.
