As a kid, I had a number of these books, however, I remember almost nothing of them, reflecting their overall poor quality.

The biggest sin, in my eyes, is that, despite having a massive amount of characters to choose from, such as Duke, Roadblock, Dusty, Scarlet, etc. in each book they have you play a newly-created bland, generic teenaged operative, who usually has some skill such as "quick decision making" (shouldn't all members of the Joe team have this "skill"?), and no other talent. These series seemed bound and determined not to let pre-teens play adult characters, for whatever reasons. They could've make these instantly more interesting by, say, having you choose from a selection of Joe operatives from the start for the missions.
