What The Hell Happened To Rambo The Video Game?
There’s a running gag in the games industry that games based on licensed properties like movies are doomed to fail, and that’s a gag with plenty of supporting evidence ranging from early Batman games to The Matrix games to many more.
Of course, there have been exceptions with the likes of Spider-Man 2 on the PS2 and Goldeneye007 – but they are few and far between, and thus, unable to challenge this norm. It’s generally believed that publishers and property holders to these IPs don’t seem to really grasp what makes games fun, and how best to translate a passive experience like a movie into an active one like a video game.
A great example of this deep misunderstanding between the creators and the players is developer Teyon’s Rambo – The Video Game which was released back in 2014 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game was unanimously criticized for pretty much everything it tried to do, and remains one of the worst licensed video games of recent memory. To that end, we ask the question – what the hell happened with Rambo – The Video Game?

Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Rambo: The Video Game for the PlayStation 3 developed by Teyon and published by Reef Entertainment, Ltd.
Don’t worry, Rambo—you get to win this time. Rambo: The Video Game combines the first three Rambo movies into one action-packed video game. Major scenes from First Blood, First Blood II and Rambo III are turned into shooting galleries in this light-gun style shooter. It’s an old-school genre, which is fitting for a Rambo game. John Rambo is about as old-school as it gets. Players can unlock perks that upgrade Rambo’s abilities and new weapons for his battles. The game’s action sequences are split up by cinematic quick-time events, generally during scenes when Rambo is in stealth mode. Rambo: The Video Game offers single-player and local multiplayer play. And lots and lots of bullets.
This video review features video gameplay footage of Rambo: The Video Game for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room’s Derek.
