The Atlantis factor is a totally different game, developed by a different company. Either game is a sequel to the other, which might actually have been pretty confusing for kids in the day. Imagine trying to talk to a kid at school about how awesome the “G.I.Joe” game is and being utterly baffled that your experiences don’t match? Or maybe nobody every played either of these games. Anyway, we found Capcom’s version of this franchise to be much worse. I MIGHT be wrong because we only scratched the surface of this game and we got jammed on the first boss. But the gameplay in that limited time is less fun, even though the controls seem fine and there is probably some kind of character selection. It isn’t terrible, but if you are thirsty for a G.I.Joe experience, get the Taxan version.
