    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]

    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 only when the game reaches Soviet-occupied Afghanistan, the weakest of the movies, that the game boasts moments of genuine enjoyment. [Issue#146, p.119]

    Rambo: The Video Game is an awkward, short, ugly and expensive game that tries to generate some nostalgia, but ultimately fails. Instead of spending money on Teyon's creation, it's better to watch the entire game on YouTube, or better yet - watch all the movies. And the best thing to do is: go for a walk, find a video arcade and beat Virtua Cop one more time.

    Rambo: The Video Game is indeed "Your worst nightmare." This on-rails shooting gallery looks and plays like a game made by two monkeys. And it doesn’t even turn blue...

    The fact that Rambo: The Video Game is being sold for almost full retail price is insulting, not to mention the fact that it feels mostly unfinished and uninspired.

    But almost no one can understand style and almost no one can understand the meaning of like we say in Russia "Rail Shooter". They good in they genre,but this game did not have to realese on retail, especially for such prices.Only Arcade,Only Hardcore

    Nowhere near as bad or abysmal as people are making it out to be, but by all means it's not that good either. It's a standard arcadeNowhere near as bad or abysmal as people are making it out to be, but by all means it's not that good either. It's a standard arcade rail-shooter, something I don't mind seeing on the market every now and then. I am not a Rambo fan by any means, but after playing a few levels I was hooked onto the rail-shooting action. It's a small game, under 4 hours, a little longer if you play on Green Barrett difficulty (because you'll die a few times.) The graphics are just very standard, nothing pretty or special just something to tell you "hey, I'm a tree" or "No, I'm a car." Now there are levels where the lighting, shades and graphics are booming. Level 3 is a perfect example of this. The lights and rain decals are spot on.

    Voice acting is not there because every word is from the film reels, they've been edited just a tad to make the voice louder and background softer. Something I and a lot of people are not happy about, but it works. Levels range from small to medium. The major complaint is the comparison to Rambo. The hair is overdone and the face is too long. The other NPCs are just alright.

    It works well for a quick time killer to play once in awhile or when you just go "You know, I need to shoot ****." There's upgrades for skills and weapon unlock challenges. Not really any replay value but if you need a fix for a rail-shooter arcade it'll do it. The price however is too much, wait until it falls to $15 or $10, better if it goes to $5. Hyper die-hard Rambo fans might get it to pass but if you want a dumb-fun arcade old fashion rail-shooter that will work too.

    Everything is wrong with this game- it has the most repeating and lazy soundtrack, impossible to control camera and a play time that is 2 to 4Everything is wrong with this game- it has the most repeating and lazy soundtrack, impossible to control camera and a play time that is 2 to 4 hours!!?? The game is seriously broken with crashes, bugs, glitches and may cause you to have some PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Dissorder) after playing. There is nothing good about this game. Overall the pros and cons are
    +May give you a good laugh about how bad the game is
    -Seriously lazy developers
    -Bad and repetitive gameplay
    -Rail shooter which costs almost as much as a normal game
    -$40 price tag that should have been $5
    +Game is intense at times but not more than 5 minutes in total in your playthrough
    -Ridicoulosly easy
    -Bad Quick time events, bad action design
    -Awkward graphics and animations
    -No story at all

    OVERALL- Bad lazy, poor, cheap and overpriced garbage that shouldnt be played by no one and should be a failure

    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have seen all the movies numerous times and the games kinda sorta puts some of the movie spots in it. But in first blood Rambo goes back into the water, in the games he runs and jumps and ducks under a log then runs into the woods. And also the from the first movie he takes out the guard behind the door with force. In the game you hide behind the corner and hit him. And also you do not break the young police officers nose when exiting the buldIng and Rambo in the game he runs and slides over the cop car. Now in the movie he runs out and down the road a little ways at the intersection and takes the dirt bike. In the game you are not shown having a dirt bike at all. DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME EVER!!!!!
