    Rambo: The Video Game does a solid job of breaking potential monotony with various alternate battle methods.

    Not nearly as awful as it first appears and a surprisingly effective movie adaptation, that channels much of the same mindless energy as the first two sequels.

    The cut and paste character models, with their misshapen limbs and dead eyes, together with the inconsistently sampled audio, combine to provide a experience that frequently feels cheap and in places is just downright nasty – a VHS knock off when, in this day and age, you would at least have expected a DVD remaster.

    In 2014, the idea of slogging through an entirely scripted, arcade rail-shooter with a mouse or a joypad feels like an unmitigated waste of time for everybody involved.

    It's so terrible it nearly transcends its own boundaries and becomes something jaw-droppingly incredible - being memorably crap. [Apr 2014, p.89]

    Some games are so bad they're endearing. Rambo is not one of these. It's an insult to games and gamers alike. [May 2014, p.78]

    Rambo: The Videogame is one of the worst games that we've ever played. Poor and simple mechanics, a total disaster in terms of graphics and another wasted movie license.

    If you are not a fan of the movies then you will not like this game. If you are a fan then you should be able to appreciate the game as it is. Is it by no means a perfect game but its fun and delivers if you do not expect a COD type game. You can tell that it was made by fans for the fans. The controls are awful IN THE BEGINNING. Cant stress this enough. When you get the hang on the controls then its great fun. I cannot give the game a 10 because that would be a lie, but a solid 8 and a thumbs up for bringing some Rambo action to the fans. Expand

    The simple good thing in the game is the graphic. I am often asking if the developers know that the games look like nowadays. Virtual Co-op is better than this, just because that was the time for this tipe of gameplay and not 2014. This is awkward... you cannot do something different! The most active is shooting and then doing cover. This is not a good game, as shooter, but, maybe, as a different game, should be better. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I haven't done and won't be doing a full length review for this game because I would essentially end up saying the same thing over and over. Sadly, this is one of those games where I could just imagine it being terrible before I'd even played it, and boy was I right on the money. Speaking of money, don't waste yours on this junk- and junk is what it is. It's always sad when a studio puts in "work" on a game that is inevitably so terrible that it's hard to imagine somebody actually crafted it over a long period of time. Literally the only thing interesting about this game is that Rambo in-game has about the same expression as Sly had throughout the entire Rambo series. Other than that, this is an entirely too much on rails game that can't even do on-rails correctly, and ultimately falls into the hellish abyss of crappy games. I'm being pretty generous just giving it a score of a 2, as that is probably more than it deserves. Expand

    This game is just terrible.
    The Graphics don't even like they're for PS3. They look lije they have these 3D paper models.
    The shooting is
    annoying.
    It's totally broken.

    If you want to see action, watch the last 30 minutes of Rambo the move. Don't buy this sorry excuse for a game.

    Im feel like playing a DUCK game from SNES but without fun (have to play at mouse, not lightgun). Cheap effects, and screenshots on Steam looks TOTALLY different than ingame. Plastic models, idiotic "pseudo rpg style perks". Voice acting from movie (sounds like from old VHS). That game is terrible. Expand
