    A mediocre on rail shooter that could become somewhat enjoyable for huge fans of the character that are willing to play with the PlayStation Move.

    I just rented this game for fun... I knew it was horrible before I rented it but I'm a crazy guy that likes to have fun with crappy games onceI just rented this game for fun... I knew it was horrible before I rented it but I'm a crazy guy that likes to have fun with crappy games once in awhile a lot of games are crappy but still can have fun moments...this can not be said about this title.. I have nothing against on rail shooters but this game cant even do that right..All this game is, is cashing in on the "RAMBO" name, you can clearly see no effort went into this game.. The game is also annoying where you have Rambo screaming almost every time he shots his gun, I must admit I did laugh at first, but wow it got annoying fast... This game doesn't do anyone any favours and it actually is a chore to play.. I only recommend this game to people who like to review **** games on Youtube... I don't usually rate any game a 0 because some games might be crappy but I like to give credit where it's due and try and look for the good in games.. I could not find any good from this game... Quick and easy cash in... Full Review »

    AWESOME game for the "Playstation Move Sharp Shooter"!! Graphics could have been better. But, 5 Stars because of the RAMBO fun factor. AndAWESOME game for the "Playstation Move Sharp Shooter"!! Graphics could have been better. But, 5 Stars because of the RAMBO fun factor. And yes, I am a huge Rambo/Stallone/ACTION fan. But, if you weren't, would you be here reading this? The game is an arcade style rail shooter. So, most of the bad reviews that are being written, people are playing the game with the analog controller. They are dragging around a cross hair with a control stick. Let me assure you that this was the "secondary" method of play and only if it is the only way you can play it. Then, I say skip it. However, this game was designed with the "Playstation Move Sharp Shooter" in mind. In my mind, this should have been a "PS3 Move Sharp Shooter" exclusive. Forget the xbox and pc. Heck they did eliminate the Xbox version in the US. The blasting action is non stop. It is much more immersive and challenging with this peripheral add on. The QTE's (quick time events) act as a nice violent break from all of the RAMBO AK-47 CARNAGE since you can rest the gun to your side while performing these. I was actually upset that there WASN'T a QTE for the epic knife kill on the gun boat in Part II. It took me 6-8 hours to complete this game on EASY. The 2-4 hour completion time people are clocking themselves at is with the mouse and keyboard. There is ZERO"aiming skill". They are just pointing, clicking and popping heads. Lame. The graphics are my only complaint. But, REEF took a risk with this game on a restricted budget. And, we are comparing it to next gen games already. The graphics are decent enough. As a RAMBO fan, I still love playing through some of the greatest action movie moments of ALL TIME. Riddle the police station with M60 bullets? check. Ride inside the Huey for the epic bazooka battle against the Russian? yep. Shooting helicopters out of the sky with the DShK Heavy Machine Gun accompanied with epic slow motion explosions. OH YEAH. 5.1 surround sound? DO IT. Turn it to 10. Make the neighbors complain like I did. The only mistake with this game is that they should have made this game 5 years ago with the release of the Playstation peripherals. The graphics would have been above average then and Sony would have sold more controllers. Better late than never. This game is getting bad reviews because of the release date. But, this game is much better than "The House of the Dead: Overkill - Extended Cut" which got a 75 on Metacritic just 3 years ago IMO. Full Review »

    Rambo The Videogame is a laughing stock. The game director had gotten a divorce midway through the development stage and could tell had givenRambo The Videogame is a laughing stock. The game director had gotten a divorce midway through the development stage and could tell had given up all hope for the game. He lost custody of his children, then they hated him and pledged to never see him again. "Why?" said the director, looking at his wife. She looked him cold in the eye, her hair blowing profusely in the wind. "I don't love you anymore." She repied. She took the beta copy of rambo the videogame that the director had let her play out of her purse and dropped it onto the floor. "Did you like it?" the director asked. She squatted oddly, uncomfortably, and began to urinate on the game case. The drizzle sound the piss made as it reached its plastic destination. The director stormed off. "What the f u c k." the children said. "Let's go home." replied the ex wife. They left in a mini coop. The camera slowly zooms in on John Rambo's piss covered face as it fades to black. About the game for real though. It belongs in an arcade and shouldn't cost $40 to play, it should be 4 tokens. The soundtrack repeats itself and the dialog is ripped straight from the old movies. I could have made this game in windows paint and the finished product would be more entertaining than this ridiculous money grab fest at the developers offices. Thanks for killing all those cops Rambo-yours truly-JOOOOOHHHHHNNNNN!!!! Full Review »
