Even though it received poor reviews, I bought the Rise of Cobra video game from a bargain bin for $5.00. Considering that the average price for brand new games in Australia is usually $99.00, this is a massive markdown. After playing it, it's easy to see why. It's a fairly average action game. You play through a variety of environments, including forests, deserts, jungles, and frozen tundras, but all you're required to do is manoeuvre your characters around the screen while holding down the shoot button on your controller. The action is punctuated by easily solveable puzzles. It's passable as a bargain bin title, but you'd be pretty annoyed if you'd paid full price for it.
