Rambo is a 'Machine of War' in new trailer

A new trailer for Rambo: The Video Game shows off John Rambo doing what he does best: effortlessly killing people.

12

Sure, games like The Last of Us are pushing the boundaries of performance in video games. However, low-budget games can't really afford to go beyond plastic-faced, emotionless character models. Fortunately that puts them around the acting range of Sly Stallone, making Rambo: The Video Game a natural choice. A new trailer shows off Rambo doing what he does best: murdering exceptionally poor marksmen.

It's really not even a fair fight, as a few of the sequences show people firing fully automatic weapons and not once hitting the gigantic meat-sack that is John Rambo. He doesn't seem to mind the deck stacked his favor, though, as he kills them all without cracking a frown. Or smile. Or anything, really.

      If the game doesn't have a choice at the start to play the game or keep pounding rocks at a quarry in an endless QTE, then it's not a Rambo game.

          ya right fanboi!!!!

          I dont have the game but every single BF game I've owned (all of them except 2142 and BF4) have been crashy buggy messes. hell I cant even play BFBC2 because it crashes after 30 minutes every single time. I've tried everything

            Fanyboy? Really?

            I can tell you right now I despise EA/DICE buisness model in most cases, but I have not found anything wrong with my install of Battlefield 4 on Windows 7. So call me what you would like, but I've played BF1942 (worked fine), BF2 (some netcode issues, but no crashing), B2142 (worked AMAZING), and now BF4 (no issues at all except with some netcode which they are working on).

            I view netcode issues as really a non-issue, because if everyone is dealing with the same netcode then to me that is fair. Yeah it's shitty to be laying prone and getting sniped off of a building where no way in hell someone from the ground could get you, but eh...It's a game I'll get over it.

            I stand by my "To bad I have yet to crash since launch, and I have 200+ hours on BF4 multiplayer."

                Didn't mean it to become that, but when someone calls me a fanboy of something I will either admit I am (for example nVIDIA and Intel all the way!), but if I am not I will state that I am not and back it up with facts.

                ^_^ All in good spirits...

                  1: your anecdotal "facts"
                  2: solipsistic viewpoint that if it hasn't happened to you it must not be a problem

                  great posts bro

              Then you must be the luckiest person in the world. Go play the lottery.

          Most of the rest of people that play the game have seen at least a few. I had a few days with no crashes but now I think I'm around 1 per night, that is if I don't see a showstopper and rage quit first.

      They should have him grit his teeth when firing machine guns or something -- looks ridiculously bad.

      I know I should have low expectations for this, but for some reason I'm unbelievably excited!

      I'd rather they make a game based off of first blood

        It would be awesome of this were First Blood, but First Blood from the perspective of Rambo's shattered psyche. I'd buy that game.

      Not sure why they didn't just license the latest Dunia or CryEngine.

      it would be more of a challenging game not to kill people.
