    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 games is a cross between time crisis (you have to duck behind stuff) and Alien storm (in parts) on the Sega. A new idea in the way the game flows but as a Rambo fan i think this game is brilliant. The graphics are not great but the game does play well and is trickier than you might think. Imagine a shooter game without the gun! 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

    I loved the films, unlike the game (sorry Skipper - you can speak fer yerself mate, but not for the likes of me). A whole set of movie plots being followed in rail-shooter fashion on a PC does not a solid, good game make. I found it tedious at best, plain ridiculous at worst. To say that this game simply should never have been allowed to hit the shelves is an understatement. Much like another game I'm going to review any second now. Expand

    So many issues are with this game. Why does aiming and combat feel clumsy and slow? Why does auto-aim hinder you (Police station level)? Why is there whole levels of QTEs? Why does the reload feature in combo with game make you vulnerable due to sections of game because it takes him tedious seconds to reload and there is no cover in those sections? Why do enemies or you clip a lot or rag doll in funny moments? Why is all of Rambo's dialogue including other characters ripped straight from the movie? Why does the graphics look late Ps2 era? Why does this game cost $40?

    No better on the PC either where it will crash to Steam for no reason but atleast mouse feels more responsive. Guns all feel the same and more ammo is what you want not that you be playing the challenge modes anyways. Game has no repeatability besides showing your friend how bad this game is. Save your money and buy all the movies. Give or take each movie costs $10 that's all the Rambo for the cost of this game.
