    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 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

    Rambo The Video Game
    No surprises here
    Rambo The Video Game is an on rails shooter developed my favorite people that brought us the heavy fire series, if you can’t sense my sarcasm, trust me… it’s there…
    So it’s no surprise this is a bad game… one that gets worse the longer you play it…
    I’ll give the developers credit, they do mix the game up a bit as you travel through the story of the Rambo trilogy for 3 and a half hours…
    You’ll do quick time sequences, guns, stealth sections with the bow which were my favorite.. and explosive sequences…
    much more variety than any of the heavy fire games… but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this game is just a joke…
    It looks and sounds like an early ps2 game… cut scenes are choppy, the level design is uninteresting…
    it’s a chore to get through…
    As you do shoot your way through levels either alone or with a friend you get graded based on the difficulty you complete it in, by the way you might as well not even consider playing on normal or easy because you’ll hardly get any credit at all other than story progression… no trophies for you..
    You shoot bad guys, full up your wrath meter to slow down time for the opportunity to gain health…
    which isn’t too much of an issue until later in the game...
    You also level up to unlock skills and perks to buff your Rambo up to your own liking…
    However the final mission feels like it’s from an entirely different game…
    There is an insane difficulty spike out of nowhere and brings down any hopes of recommendations from me…
    They stack heavies turrets and dozens of enemies right on top you, massively spaced out checkpoints, and cheap kill these enemies before the tanks seers you sections that can mean instadeath…
    And all of this is so bad because dying on any difficulty other than easy more than a few times means you have to start the mission all the way from the beginning….
    This game was just garbage up to this point... now its painful garbage...
    It’s like walking on broken glass trying to finish it…
    Don’t play it
    I Give Rambo The Video Game a 2.5/10

    So, Rambo. Rambo, Rambo, Rambo... What are we going to do with you? First of all before we get into what is so, so wrong about this game,So, Rambo. Rambo, Rambo, Rambo... What are we going to do with you? First of all before we get into what is so, so wrong about this game, let's go through the things that were good about it. Number one is that it made me appreciate how good the Rambo films are (well most of them) because of how different they are to this game. Number two is the constant enjoyment I get out of nearly every aspect of life, knowing that life will never get as bad as that horrible time I endured the torture of this video game. Number three is that it has made me appreciate free movement in video games. And finally the fourth thing the game has taught me is that trailers can sometimes make the game seem better than it is. And then there are trailers, like the one used for this video game, that not only exaggerate how good the game is but also straight up lie to you. So, ironically the things I liked about the game were the things that it made me appreciate while not playing it and the things it didn't ruin. Right, now onto the relentless criticism. The price is the main issue here and all of the other waste in the game simply revolves around it, like flies orbiting some dog faeces. The fact that someone can charge £30 for this in this day and age is a disgrace to the human race. I would not think this game deserves this to reach the price of an arcade game. I would not expect this deserves to reach the price of a free to play game. The price I would say this game is worth of is in the minus numbers and even then, it would have to be a pretty big sum. I think that the developers of this game should pay people to play it. It's that horrible. Here's why. It's a rail shooter (a shooter that does not allow you to move, just to shoot) in 2014. In 2014, actually no scrap that, let's go back 10 years. In 2004, we did not have rail shooters. We had games like Star Wars Battlefront (a much better game released 10 years before this), FIFA 04 (a much better game released 10 years before this) and the list goes on and on, but you get the point. Having a rail shooter in this century, let alone year, is unacceptable. The graphics as well as the gameplay are horrendous, another aspect of this travesty that shouldn't be allowed to be so bad. The character model of Rambo, looks nothing like Rambo. It looks like a child picked up their favourite doll and then dressed them up like Rambo. Actually on the subject of character models, all of the Vietnamese people in the game look the same. Not only is this an insult to the people who bought this game, but link this with the racist attire they are wearing and it becomes an insult to the people of Vietnam. The voice acting is some of the worst I have ever heard only second to that of Ride to Hell: Retribution. It also doesn't help that the game lacks a story and for most of it has you, Rambo and I'll repeat that, RAMBO, mowing down policemen. So not only did the developers get the graphics, the gameplay, the story, the character models and the overall feel of the game wrong, but they also managed to, and there's no other way to put this, screw up the character of Rambo, the literal name of the game. Giving this game a 2 is generous, the only reason I rated it so high is the joy it gives me in knowing I never have to play it again. Expand

    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.
