    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]

    Developers did all they could to diversify the gameplay but Rambo remains a simple game that quickly becomes repetitive and boring. [04/2014, p.63]

    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 not being corny and schlocky on purpose, which means that for all its faults Rambo honestly taps into the spirit of 1980s action cinema more deeply than you might expect - not in spite of its rough edges, but because of them.

There is a reason that nobody makes them anymore and that's because the technology has advanced to a point where we can leave bad game design mechanics where they belong...in the trash. Full Review »

    A rail shooter, really?
    The graphics look like an early PS2 game and I'm betting 90% of the budget was spent on the licencing.
    Avoid like the plague!

    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.
