Google Releases Half-Busted G.I. Joe Game (That You Can’t Play in the US)

Choose a side and battle in G.I. Joe: War on Cobra! Build, upgrade, and defend your base in this high action, competitive real-time strategy (RTS), multiplayer game featuring your favorite G.I. Joe Heroes and Cobra Villains!

The War on Cobra wages on…where does your allegiance lie? Clash with or against iconic characters like Duke, Snake Eyes, Scarlett, Roadblock, Storm Shadow, Baroness, and more! Deploy or demolish Units like H.I.S.S., Mamba, Vamp, Sharc Tooth, and Land Drones. The future of Earth is at stake, will you save it or conquer it?

Oh…except for one thing.

You can’t actually play this game.

G.I. Joe: War on Cobra! dropped seemingly out of nowhere on Google gaming and app site yesterday, and like many G.I. Joe fans starved for toys, games, content, and representation of their favorite franchise, this game is already seeming like a preemptive failed endeavor from some cheap in-game purchases app maker who was smart enough to purchase the G.I. Joe license to reel in fans.

Then come to find that the game cannot be played/downloaded/purchases by US users, and according to its 8 reviews (which has 2/5 stars) the game is broken, downloads don’t work,  and content takes forever to load.

This is disheartening– the Joe community deserves better than this. It is one of the most enthusiastic fan bases out there, ready to purchase items from the franchise they love, and then disrespectful broken games come out. Want to do the Joe community justice? Put out a board game! A strong, hour plus long, thoughtful game that uses 3 inch Joe inspired game pieces.

Or if nothing else…

Can we just bring  back the toys?
