    Rambo sucks major ass, but the game is actually so bad, that in some crooked way it's good. It's an interactive turd, but the transition from bad action movies to bad action games is as smooth as possible. [Apr 2014]

    It’s a B-movie game in every sense, but approach it with sufficiently lowered expectations, and you may just be pleasantly surprised.

    It's only when the game reaches Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, the weakest of the movies, that the game boasts moments of genuine enjoyment. [Issue#146, p.119]

    Rambo: The Video Game is an awkward, short, ugly and expensive game that tries to generate some nostalgia, but ultimately fails. Instead of spending money on Teyon's creation, it's better to watch the entire game on YouTube, or better yet - watch all the movies. And the best thing to do is: go for a walk, find a video arcade and beat Virtua Cop one more time.

    Rambo: The Video Game is indeed "Your worst nightmare." This on-rails shooting gallery looks and plays like a game made by two monkeys. And it doesn’t even turn blue...

    The fact that Rambo: The Video Game is being sold for almost full retail price is insulting, not to mention the fact that it feels mostly unfinished and uninspired.

    "It`s awful game bla bla bla"-they say
    "We need more dogs and more explosions"-they say.
    But almost no one can understand style and almost
    no one can understand the meaning of like we say in Russia "Rail Shooter". They good in they genre,but this game did not have to realese on retail, especially for such prices.Only Arcade,Only Hardcore Expand

    I give this game a solid 7. I grew up with the games like Die Hard Trilogy, Virtual Cop, Time Crisis and enjoyed those light-gun/rail-shooter games. So rambo is a rail-shooter, is it the best? Maybe not. The worst? Definitely not. I bought rambo, played it over 10 hours now. The game is much deeper than you think and rambo is more about getting a high score than about fantastic storyline or world exporation.
    Graphics are decent and the level design is actually pretty good to be honest. The graphics are not the best out there, but they do the job. You need to fulfill these conditions to like rambo the videogame:

    1) You need to like Rambo (quite obvious)
    2) You need to like rail-shooter games. (THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!)
    3) You need to like old-school, arcade type games. (This is important too.)
    4) You need to want to Rambo. (It's always a good day to Rambo)

    I actually feel pretty bad, because i can see that the devs really like old-school type railgun shooters. This has everything. The stupid enemies that funnily look behind a barrel sticking their heads out.

    to me, this is a perfect rambo game. Sure, it could have been better, but it's everything i can hope from a rambo game. And actually, i have played rambo more than CoD:Ghosts, i think that's enough said :)

    5 reasons why i like Rambo:

    1) Good, old-school fun
    2) Always time to do some Ramboing (one level takes about 5-10 minutes)
    3) You can compete against yourself. an arcade game thingy.
    4) I can blow stuff up with bow that has explosive tips...
    5) I can be John Rambo.

    I even came up with a saying: "When everything else fails, you can always Rambo."

    Not that bad of a game at all.

    Just in case you are wondering, the 4 is for Rambo himself, not this outdated piece of junk game that maybe would have been cool in 2001. Thanks once again for ruining Rambo! Expand

    0/10. Would not play. Sucks major balls. Has no dogs. Where are the interactive fish? Majorly disappointing.
    Probably needs to be burnt and
    buried...

    Still better than Call of Duty.

    This game is a blast from the past, in a very bad way.
    There haven't been that much rail shooter in the last 10 years and this game might be
    the last nail in the coffin. By today's technological standards the game is just lazy done garbage.
    The screen shots Reef released were definitely prettied up by Photo shop, since the real game could run on a Sega Dreamcast for sure. The decision to
    use voices from the movie could have its benefits, but is just poorly done, sheriff Teasle in the shower scene sounds like his voice comes from loudspeakers in the next room.
    For sure Reef has done this, so they don't have to pay for good voice actors.

    The story of this game turns Rambo in a merciless killing machine, who can slaughter innocent National Guard people like pigs. From a movie in which 1 person dies, just unbelievable.
    The funniest thing is, while you can spare the lives of Americans, every Russian and Vietnamese has to die, because.

    This game turned out to be a parody of the Rambo series, but a horribly bad one.
    Stay away from this garbage.
