With the recent announcement of a "AAA" Rambo game in the works from a UK studio, PS3Center looks at what we want to see in this game.
This game will suck. I called it first :P
Agreed. All nostalgia aside (if you're really old enough) . . . Rambo movies border on the edge of pathetic. The NES games sucked bawls. This game will suck bawls.
Ah the first is alright, and the new one surprised me, it is in the entertaining catagory
The first movie was good!
They should let Epic handle it. I can't imagine too many other devs being able to pull it off...also Crytek maybe.
As long as it's not another FPS....
Contra is Rambo but with a sci-fi tone to it. Edit: You sir are correct. See attached
I thought it was more in line with Predator, although maybe it's a combination of both.
wow the picture of contra and arnold look almost identical
The Gameplay allows for stealth and "Rambo" style gunplay. So for a Rambo titled game to be good it's gonna have to just copy Crysis but minus the Nanosuit!!
No just no - Rambo is nothing like Crysis. If anything is more like Metal Gear Solid.
Metal Gear Solid 3. Jungle survival. The man makes a good point. Why disagree?
Got a lot of disagrees for My Crysis is Rambo post but if you have ever played Crysis and watched Rambo: First Blood Part II it's dam near the same thing minus of course the Aliens and the Nanosuit. Rambo 1 to me is the same as Crysis cause it mixes stealth action with Rambo gun play on the fly. i think some people are thinking about crysis 2.
Stupid headline, replace "Rambo" name with any other past war movie protagonist, hell just any action charachter and its just as valid. lol, Wow, the author really went out on a limb, I mean seriously who writes this stuff?....pfft try harder.
Rambo came out before video games were even three-dimensional. Saying "oh well MGS(a game that was inspired by Rambo)is already Ramboish, and so is far cry and COD, we dont need a Rambo game" isnt logical. If anything is deserving of a respectable game, Rambo is it.
I wonder if they'll get Sylvester Stallone to voice him... Just because he's done with Rambo films dosen't mean he's done with it all together. It would be pretty cool if they did it like Uncharted with mo cap and got him to act it out....but that would never happen
I think he'd be too expensive for them, they'll probably get a soundalike.
True but I thought at the end of the day if he really wanted to play his character again this would be a cheaper way to do it then making another Rambo film.
Voice is possible. Mo-cap, probably not. Pricey stuff.
Actually Stallone isn't done with Rambo just yet as there are several scripts floating around that Stallone is considering for a new Rambo movie. "The Government comes to his house and ask him to track down some terrorist or reporter he says no but then his dad/mom dies blah blah blah Rambo!!" that was the last one i saw he was considering but with the success of the Expendables he may not do it.
Actually I heard the last time he spoke about Rambo is that he wanted to do that Rambo V: The Savage Hunt idea but then he talked about a prequel with a new actor playing Rambo...although he would still direct it.
Wow, this game is only 20 years too late... Well, I guess there was a Rambo movie in '08...
Rambo has the potential to be a good game as long as they don't base it on any specific movie. Basically, it should be third person and combine a lot of stealth game play with a lot of gun blazing action. There should be a lot of jungle/forest and the ability to both use the environment as well as your own abilities to set up traps. You should be wary of your surroundings, but the enemies should never have the upper hand in terms of "vision". Potential is there. I also enjoyed the latest Rambo movie though.
Any game has the potential to be good, but most of them aren't. The developer is just tying the Rambo name on to a probably crappy title for the name recognition. If the game was so good, they could've created their own hero but no, they pick a movie hero people know of just for publicity. Any stupid boob could create a character who uses a bow and stealth in the jungle.
Same could be same about Arkham Asylum or Riddick or Goldeneye 64, didn't stop those games being pretty decent.
but please all jokes aside dont make another mock up of god of war please....cant see rambo doing this bit...
You just described Metal Gear Solid. A Rambo with MGS gameplay would be Ace.
Not unintentionally, by the way.
that sounds like a game i've played many times. I won't even pretend to know what kind of game it needs to play like but god I hope it's not that one.
YO ADRIAAAAAN... oh ....wait! o_0 wrong movie
Give me a Break. And I ain't talking about a Kit Kat.
"I didn't hear no bell"
Wouldn't it be Far Cry but with lots of one liners and a greener forest?
its call of duty....run around senselessly blindly shooting and stabbing people
So I take it you've never watched a Rambo movie.
rambo movies are awesome but thats what you do in call of duty unless you never played those or a fanboy of cod
But Rambo never did "Rambo" stuff in his movies. He was stealthy and tactical. He didn't run around guns blazing.
Why is this being developed in the UK and not the USA?
I'm sorry but wtf does that have to do with anything? Maybe I should get Rocksteady to cancel Batman. They could hand it to US developer instead. Do you want that?
Sorry, relax my friend all is friendly here. It is just an curious observation. It seems games are being outsourced just like everything else for some time (political and economical reasons). The subject of the character of RAMBO, based on a American movie theme being produced else where. It brings things back into question is all. On a different note. Talent is everywhere, but cheaper to use that talent in some places. Everyone should get equal pay for well deserved talent no matter what country it comes from. Sadly, that is not the case.
And I could be millionaire, but probably won't be...
"Rambo Game Could be the Best Game Ever, but Probably Won't be" First, A "Rambo" game, even if the game is great could never be "the best game ever". the statement is so stupid that it could only have been said by a mental midget.
Hopefully it will be a third person shooter.
I've become a bit of a Sylvester Stallone fan as of late, so yeah I'm interested. He went through that rocky (pun intended) stage in his career during the early noughties where his films were flopping at the box office (Drive, Detox) and he was eventually starring in straight-to-DVD guff. Then he made a comeback with the surprisingly excellent Rocky Balboa and it's humbled him a bit I think. He's a far more likeable presence now than he was before he got knocked down. I just hope that if this game is being made then he has some affiliation with it. The developers should try their upmost to get Sly involved, and to provide voicework at least. I mean, who the hell else could fill Rambo's virtual boots?
If it was a PS3 Exclusive, then it would be AWESOME!
I want this to succeed. I love the old school macho Rambo movies. Who wouldn't want to be in control of the title character? I hope this developer takes it's time and crafts something great for the gamers. None of us need a rush job to cash in on John J. Rambo's name!
I wonder if its based off the arcade game I saw at a Dave n Busters? Or if they do the Hybrid Blu Ray with the PS3 version where its a movie and game together
Not a PS3 exclusive=inferiority
