Few publishers are brave enough to send us DS screenshots as large as the ones we received for EA's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

As Crecente reported last month, the Nintendo DS version of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is a top-down action game with role-playing elements in which the player takes one control of one character at a time, running about shooting at things and gaining levels as they go.

Between this and its console big brother, I'm honestly a bit more taken with this format, as simplistic as it looks. It reminds me of the old PC game a bit, and the allure of G.I. Joe is at least 80% nostalgia factor at this point anyway.
