G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout
G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout is messy. The presentation is inconsistent, while the story is serviceable at best. The addition of local multiplayer outweighs the lack of online play, and the game is lengthy enough. However, the poor combat mechanics drag down the experience heavily, and on a platform that's absolutely bursting with more competent third-person shooters, this is one that you can easily pass on.
G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout is a fun game but not a good choice if you haven't played previous games or not familiar with its heroes. Story and graphic are satisfying but gameplay mechanism are not implemented as well as they should.

Ultimately, G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout is a team-based third-person shooter with poor aiming, atrocious enemy A.I., and no online multiplayer options. That should tell you all you need to know, basically. It’s not the worst game you can buy right now, so if you’re a huge G.I. Joe fan and pick it up on a whim you might have some fun with it. Anyone with more self-control, however, should either wait for it to be deeply discounted, or simply forget it exists. You won’t be missing out on anything worthwhile if you never play it.
The tone is here, but the rest is mediocre.
G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout's beautiful animated cutscenes can't make up for the poor gameplay and lack of online multiplayer.
If you're a sentimental fan of G.I. Joe, then you are the most likely to truly enjoy this game. G.I. Joe fans will enjoy the characters, the things to collect, the Saturday morning cartoon-ish visuals, as well as the campy cartoony storyline. For all others, this will just come across as a run-of-the-mill third-person shooter game that will require some patience to find a control scheme setting you can work with.
G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout is a perfectly serviceable shooter, even if it is not a complex one. The story, the lack of rpg / progression elements and not having a cover system make this more of an arcade-y shooter while you work through the different missions. The characters themselves are the star of the show, and they did a great job in stirring up my nostalgia for the series, even if the rest of the game is solid while doing very little to stand out.
G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout is an exciting premise; you play as both the Joes and Cobra, helping to restore order and conquer the world at the same time. It’s a team-based game, where you can solo/co-op play through the campaign and duke it out with your buddy, split-screen locally of course, (not an option for this Covid era, however).
G.I. JOE is the typical game in which two measuring sticks have to be used by force. If you are a millennial who does not know the difference between "Bic Naranja and Bic Cristal" in G.I.JOE Operation Blackout, you will find a third-person shooter that is quite successful but that does not contribute anything to what has been seen before in the genre. However, if you are one of those who when hearing the expression "catch-all" immediately reminds Miriam Díaz Aorca, this game automatically wins many integers, it is not just another shooter, it is an opportunity to relive the adventures of some of the favorite heroes of Our childhood, of becoming Snake Eyes or Storm Shadow for a few hours, is an opportunity to remember when Saturday mornings were really special and that, my friends, cannot be explained with a numerical note at the bottom of a text .

G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout is nothing more than a generic shooting title that has gained a visual identity based on an established franchise. Its gameplay is inaccurate, its content is scarce and it is not exciting, abusing of repetition. Unfortunately, this is yet another defeat for both Joes and Cobras
