Surprisingly my friends, even though the game has scored low (a 5) eurogamer still had some good things to say about it. It seems to have turned out a lot better than expected. Not a total failure.

This was lost in the latter versions, what made First Blood so great and what made the Rambo series such shit, but First Blood was a real story of a Vietnam veteran who was constantly shit on, embarrassed, put down, harassed and belittled after returning from the horrific Vietnam War.

Trautman: You did everything to make this private war happen. You've done enough damage. This mission is over, Rambo. Do you understand me? This mission is over! Look at them out there! Look at them! If you won't end this now, they will kill you. Is that what you want? It's over Johnny. It's over!

Rambo: Nothing is over! Nothing! You just don't turn it off! It wasn't my war! You asked me, I didn't ask you! And I did what I had to do to win! But somebody wouldn't let us win! And I come back to the world and I see all those maggots at the airport, protesting me, spitting. Calling me baby killer and all kinds of vile crap! Who are they to protest me? Who are they? Unless they've been me and been there and know what the hell they're yelling about!

Trautman: It was a bad time for everyone, Rambo. It's all in the past now.

Rambo: For *you*! For me civilian life is nothing! In the field we had a code of honor, you watch my back, I watch yours. Back here there's nothing!

Trautman: You're the last of an elite group, don't end it like this.

Rambo: Back there I could fly a gunship, I could drive a tank, I was in charge of million dollar equipment, back here I can't even hold a job *parking cars*!

Matey, I'd quite happily take eurogamer over IGN over pretty much anything.

For a cheapy steam sale, it might be worth a punt.

Been hearing nothing but good about eurogamer, will have to check it out.
I was thinking the same. Don't let reviews/ratings fool you sometimes.

Well it's an on rails shooter so a light gun or Wii remote.

I like Videogamer's review the most.

On-rails wtf?

#17 Posted by KBFloYd (12877 posts) -

Probably Kinect. :P

Craptastic rambo game? awesome, just what the doctor ordered, nothing wrong with a little on rails shooting.

#26 Edited by ShepardCommandr (2270 posts) -

I wouldn't touch that trash even if you paid me

#27 Posted by DefconRave (550 posts) -

If I want to play an on rails shooter I'll go to an arcade. Not spend $60 for a cashgrab.

#28 Posted by blangenakker (2161 posts) -

Shouldn't it be in an arcade?

@R3FURBISHED: Lol I watched first blood the other day on IFC. I read that word for word in Stallones voice. Good on ya.

Sucks this game looked good, but on rails? .. really? Who in their right mind would waste their time developing such a thing?

#30 Edited by Master_ShakeXXX (13361 posts) -

Based on what I saw in GiantBomb's quick look of it, yeah, it is that bad.

A proper Rambo game could actually be pretty cool. Something like MGS or the new Tomb Raider. Not this on-rails shit though.

#31 Posted by sukraj (21797 posts) -

on rail shooter = fail

#32 Posted by Icarian (1468 posts) -

Wait? It's an onrail shooter with QTEs? I thought it was going to be a proper FPS game. Still, Rambo (1985) for Commodore 64 is the best Rambo game.

#33 Posted by speedfog (2967 posts) -

Looks like fun. Might play it for 20 bucks with something like the Wii mote.

#34 Edited by AcidTango (500 posts) -

I'm sorry but the game looks horrible. I saw a gameplay video of it and instead of being a fps, it's a bad rail shooter. And the game looks very outdated in terms of graphics and gameplay.
