RAMBO Draws First Blood: Debut Screens and Details Emerge

TSA Writes:

"Last month we revealed that Rambo: The Video Game will make its debut playable appearance at this year’s Gamescom. However, that hasn’t stopped Reef Entertainment from dropping a few snippets before the full mission briefing in a couple of weeks." (PC, PS3, Rambo: The Video Game, Xbox 360)

So I guess the game will be like Crysis...

This game can't be that hard to get right, If they nail gameplay I wouldnt give a damn about graphics.

Give me reasonable sandbox elements like somewhat open level design, destructable trees and flimsy cover, stealth that let's me secretly wipe out whole areas if I'm good enough, and somewhat competent enemy A.I. and I will be more than pleased because I love the films and it wouldnt take much more than that to make me happy. May the devs could throw their own story or dialog improvements into the mix, the extra effort would be noted.

You just described Just Cause 2 :P

Actually, if the game is something like Just Cause 2 I might buy it. It is a fun game, just need better controls.
Shepherd 214  +   1156d ago
It doesn't have to be nearly as large as just cause 2, and doesnt even need nearly that amount of destruction.

It's worrisome though. The game comes out kinda soon and there's still no gameplay, barely any screenshots, and the teaser trailer is a bunch of clips from the movies.

Id be happy if the game turned out like a lower budget crysis with it's own unique Rambo flare. If the game has decent crysis/farcry elements to it while giving the game a few different twists to make it it's own, I can't see the game bombing.
fermcr  +   1156d ago
It's not a good sign when they show parts of the movies instead of game-play videos... and it's suppose to be out soon (that's what they say on the video).

Honestly i don't expect much.

EDIT: Just went to the developers page. Haven't played any of their games :(

doesnt look promising, but I hope Im wrong...
rataranian  +   1156d ago
What were you basing that off of? I didn't see any game play at all.
Th3 Chr0nic  +   1156d ago
there are 3 screenshots below the vid, but thats it
mafiahajeri  +   1156d ago
Umm the trailer was kind of corny and the screens dont look that good.
Raf1k1  +   1157d ago
I hope this game turns out to be awesome.
megacowdung  +   1156d ago
Not too awesome or else CNN and BBC will blame violent crimes on this game. "Rambo the game magically gave this man the skills of a Green Beret war veteran and he shot up a starbucks."

They need not fcuk this up.

Rambo game has the potential for awesome. We've all seen how bad games like that can be, but there have been some really good ones as of late.

This movie was made to be a game, but the kind of game I wish the videogame industry would grow out of.
Aghashie  +   1156d ago
hmmmmm.... this could turn into something interesting. gonna wait to see some actual gameplay before taking a side. Rambo is a movie that have all what is needed to translate it into a great fps/action game. let's see what's gonna happen w this one.
vortis  +   1156d ago
What's crazy is that the common trope in EVERY team-based shooter is "Don't be Rambo". Well, here's our chance to be Rambo...they better not screw it up and I'm hoping it's gonna be everything it needs to be: A Rambo game for all those Leroy Jenkins who try to do Rambo in team-based shooters.
Bonerboy  +   1156d ago
Really? Promoting the game with clips from the two worst movies in the series? Doesn't make me want to play it. As far as I'm concerned movies 1 & 4 kicked ass and were somewhat plausible scenarios, but 2 & 3 were piles of abhorrent utter shit that were unfortunate to ever grace the big screen. Call me picky.
Camza  +   1156d ago
Personally I think 2 is a great movie and the plot is believable, but I agree 3 wasn't the best.
taquito  +   1156d ago
anyone actually thinking this game will be anything but digital feces is going to be a sad manbearpig
Camza  +   1156d ago
I'm praying this is a good game so much. I love the Rambo movies and he is perhaps my favourite character of all time. They better not ruin this and if this is good I'll love life.
mynameisEvil  +   1156d ago
Agreed. First Blood is actually my favorite film of all time (TRON coming up behind it) and I have a LOT of hope that this game will be good, despite the developer's credits (let's face it, Heavy Fire wasn't all that great a game).

"And God said, 'I really friggin' love Rambo, so let this game be good.' And it was good."

Screenshots are pretty impresive.
IWentBrokeForGaming  +   1156d ago
I actually really enjoyed the remake... just watched it the other night and loved watching him lay waste on that back of that truck at the end...

Make this game as brutal as the series of films and Im definatley going to play this game!
optimus  +   1156d ago
The remake?? I think you mean the 4th sequel...

People in here talk like there has never been a rambo game, which there was, back in the 8-16 bit days.
mynameisEvil  +   1156d ago
Technically, it's the third sequel, but the fourth movie.

Agreed, though. I think that movie's almost as good as the first and that's some high praise.
Tsar4ever  +   1156d ago
A RAMBO videogame concept seem sooo CORNY, I hope I'm proven wrong though.......
pumpactionpimp  +   1156d ago
As long as I get his knife to play with, I will be happy!
Der_Kommandant  +   1156d ago
I love rambo movies but my sixth sense tells me this isn't going to end well
tawak  +   1156d ago
how bout a Chuck Norris game, with infinite everything from the start for the game.
Tsar4ever  +   1156d ago
Screw chuck norris, a REAL american martial artist icon was Benny "THE JET" Urquidez, He fought international Full contact KB and stars in asian martial arts movies which chuck wouldn't do since his bout with Bruce Lee, just 2 fight scenes from jacky chan movies would put ALL of chuck norris's fight movies/tv shows to shame.

leogets  +   1156d ago
Scew american martial artists. japan ones r the finest. Take Masaaki Hatsumi for example. go on i know u wana watch some videos of him on youtube now. hes very old and very ninja ;) bujinkan martial arts ftw. karate and mix martial arts meh. its all about proper hardcore battlefield martial arts. real martial arts ;)
tawak  +   1155d ago
lol this fa*s are serious??
Ricdog  +   1156d ago
Rambo is one of my favorite action movies of all. Unfortaunatly I have a feeling they gonna screw it up.

When you think about it Rambo can make a pretty damn awesome game if done right. Rambo supports the use of stealth, kills (very gory) and intense action sequences in several different environments (town, forest, jungle, desert).

But again I have a feeling this is just a studio trying to make a quick buck rather than making a good technical game.
blackhammer  +   1156d ago
"My God, Rambo, don't do it!"

I look forward to seeing the game develop. Maybe they can throw in a certain element that will give the gameplay a somewhat special/refreshing feeling. If not, maybe there will be a cheap thrill in there.
GTRrocker666  +   1156d ago
I never saw any of the rambo films.
hennessey86  +   1156d ago
You need to sort that shit now
Tsar4ever  +   1155d ago
Got a nexflix account? Go rent them, All 4 of his movies are there.
GTRrocker666  +   1155d ago
I just never had the desire to see them
worldwidegaming  +   1156d ago
Rambo! Good stuff in its time.
Not too sure I would buy the game unless it was the entire story from start to finish...
