I was never big into G.I. Joe. Not the comic, or the cartoon and I haven’t even seen the movie. But I appreciate a team of military badasses with long history. The concept seems custom built for a badass run and gun game and looks like Taxan felt the same. I have never played or heard of this game as a child, but I wish I had. it plays like Contra but with a bunch of different characters. This game goes for about $25-35 on eBay, which … might be a reasonable price from a collector perspective, I am not sure. If you see it at a garage sale, get it!
