  1. Every once in a while a game comes along that's so bad it instantly becomes a cult classic. Rambo: The Video Game, could easily be 2014's title to beat in that department. A new gameplay teaser trailer is giving us...

    I will buy it just to own it when I see it brand new in the bargain bin for $5

    A good laugh is worth $5

    Pass, don't care how horribly funny the gameplay will be, supporting crap like this is how low standards are set and why games aren't improving. Had this been released, I don't know, 20 years ago as an arcade game, it would be more interesting.

    The Rambo III arcade game from 1989 was pretty fun. 25 years later and it's still on-rails!

    I like the crossbow headshots
     


  9. Today videogames, even the bad ones, are like 1000 times more complex than 20 years ago. So, even if they are crap for today AAA standards, they had improved. Just saying, some people are to hard on the little companies than doesn't have several millions to make videogames.

    There are plenty of decent indie games around that were made on a shoestring, but if you're tackling a well-known franchise like Rambo you're expected to maintain a certain standard. Unfortunately *very* few TV and movie tie-in games have pulled it off. Products like this should be discouraged at every opportunity.
     
  11. Wait ... this is a joke right? This post is about a playstation one and windows 98 game right?
     
     
  12. Looks like it would be quite a fun game on a tablet.

    LOL...I'll pass.

    But that did remind me of while in a theater watching Rambo III when he shot an armored Soviet Hind D helicopter out of the sky with a bow and arrow. I couldn't stand it anymore and walked out.

  15. I dont get it it looks pretty awesome to me
    decent graphics by the looks of it
    the scenes from the movie transferred with accuracy to game form
    and you get to blow **** up like god mode or is it rambo mod

    only thing not showing in the video are some sylvester stallone catchphrases

     
  16. It look good to me too.
    It is so easy to critics.

    Look at that Next Gen Graphics!
     
  19. But those indie games are little games, if a medium company try to make a normal size game they will not have millions and millions to risk like activision, rockstart, etc, so, they will have a hard time trying to reach the bar from the big budget games. IMO people shouldn't be so hard with the developers.

    I don't know kinda looks like an interesting take for an on rail shooter since we have not seen a good one of those in awhile. Could be a fun game if it works as well as it seemed to in the trailer and has all the features they are boasting about. Would not put this as a full priced game of course (IE 60 bucks) but as like a 30 dollar game it might be worth a look.

    Wow quick time events huh? I thought everyone knows by now that gamers HATE those things.

    I can think of several free to play FPS games out there right now that looks way more fun than this.
