Rambo: The Video Game Will Debut At This Year’s Gamescom

Video games that feed off popular television or movie licenses have always taken somewhat of a beating. It’s fair to say that, in the past few years, there has been a notable improvement, though the stigma of abject disappointment and wasted potential is still firmly rooted.

Hopefully this won’t be the case for Reef Entertainment’s Rambo: The Videogame. Announced for PC and consoles, the title is set to make its first “playable” appearance at Gamescom 2012. Aside from that, we have little else to go on bar an official statement Reef Entertainmnet’s Craig Lewis.


According to the commercial director, their newest game will allow players to “really get under the skin of Rambo and wield his iconic weapon-set in battle.’ Hopefully this connotes that Rambo: The Video Game will include a number of survival/improvised gameplay elements and won’t just be a movie-themed vanilla shooter.

  1. I had Rambo on the speccy. I hope its not an HD remake of that

    • I should read before I right, see below:)
      Agree about a remake, we had a Commando remake/sequel on PSN(wolf of the battlefield or something.) I actually enjoyed it, though that & ren/ops is enough nostalgia for me.

  2. I remember Predator for the Amiga. That was great. I actually am quite optimistic about this.

  3. They should make Rambo like snake eater that would be awesome!

    • When have you ever seen John Rambo ‘sneak’ (apart from hiding in trees of course)?

      I always thought of him more of an ‘all guns blazing’ kinda chap.

      • The first rambo, when he is the jungle whatever he is pretty much sneaking. I know that scene is not that long but it could work.

      • I’m pretty sure Rambo only killed 1 person in the first film

      • Well, lets just say that by the time you get to ‘Rambo’ (as in the newest one not First Blood), he clearly has no time for sneaking about! :D

  4. Remakes of films generaly don’t work. I’m not optimistic about this.

    • Aslong as it’s not released in unison with a new movie, it stands a chance, at least a better one anyhow.
      (it’s a long road, when your own your own, do do do.)

  5. That poster makes it look like a Resident Evil type Rambo game where he’s grown 2 heads and spawned out of a fire! In fact, why would you have 2 close-ups of someones face on a poster???

    • Isn’t it just a weird amalgamation of all three of the first three film covers?

      • yep… plus Blue Thunder too.

  6. R.First.Blood ptII on the Spectrum, was awsome at the time, hopefully this will be as entertaining.

  7. so I’m guessing it won’t be based on the Rambo where he sides with the Mujaheddin against the Soviets – yeah some of the speeches in that wouldn’t go down with some Americans at all lol

    • Yeah, I watched Rambo III not so long ago… awkward lol

  8. Rambo is not gory enough these days.
