Dire Video Game Adaptation,
This review is from: Rambo: The Video Game (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I must say how gutted I was when I played this game & to say I was disappointed is a understatement.
I'm a huge Rambo fan & was hoping that this game was going to deliver the goods.
The graphics are awful & the animation seems static & I'm sure actor Sylvester Stallone won't be too happy if he sees his likeness here which is very poor to say the least.
This game isn't even a free roaming experience & considering it's based on the Rambo movies it doesn't include the fourth movie in it's game play, It focuses only movies 1-3 why?, That movie has been out for 6 year's now so it's omission is a complete mystery.
Even the sound & dialogue isn't up to scratch as Sly didn't record dialogue for this game as his dialogue is taken directly from the actual movie's.
The gameplay is ok although jerky & this game doesn't merit any replay value & it only takes around 4 hour's to complete.
I'm disappointed with this movie tie-in as I was hoping for a Rambo game to be done
Justice as there plenty of source material on offer to adapt into an excellent game.
Sadly it isn't going to be this particular game & it says something of the games quality when I'd rather go back & play the Rambo games on my old ZX Spectrum+2 than play this Xbox version again.
A wasted gaming opportunity of a excellent movie franchise.
