Rambo may be a real American hero, or anti-hero if you will, but Europe gets first dibs on Rambo: The Video Game. Yes, Teyon's on-rails shooter, via European publisher Reef Entertainment, will arrive on European shores starting February 21 with a North American release to follow later on in Q1 2014. It's almost enough to make a bald eagle cry, but really what's more American than sharing our mindless violent action heroes with the world?
Yes, Rambo: The Video Game is an on-rails shooter where Rambo's little automated cart will constantly place him in front of dozens of racially stereotypical bad guys for the player to mow down with a machine gun. It's a genre of game that's rare to see these days, so why not make one featuring a character no one expected to ever see in a game again? It's a blast from the past, kind of like Sly Stallone's other big project these days, The Expendables.
Get hyped then, Europe. Apparently Rambo: The Video Game's publisher thinks you're bigger Rambo fans then Rambo's homeland. This is something you've earned, so own it. Even if it does end up being a terrible game, North America applauds you for taking one for the team. Europe can pick up Rambo: The Video Game on February 21 for Xbox 360 and PS3.

This game will go 1 of 2 ways...its either going to really really REALLY suck and hurt the Rambo rep. or, it'll be semi-descent and we will all blow it off as just another video game

oh boy... as optimistic as i try to be this one just has doomed written all over it. the cheap title, the gameplay, even the limited edition figure, this is just going nowhere...
if this game combined the rambo world with the gameplay & open world of far cry 3 i'd really be interested but this? it's actually a bit sad that there's still folks out there who think that a borrowed celebrity name and box art alone will sell. it might be an arcade style game but that doesn't make us impulsive brats with loose change in our pockets.

Looks terrible, destined to fail. Makes me wonder why these companies bother.

This looks boring as sin. It's suited for an Arcade somewhere, but I doubt it's going to sell very well and the ones that do sell will wind up in the bargain bins in shops for £5.

Stay true to the scenes in the film; hope Stallone's actions have, somehow, been translated nicely into the gameplay?!
