Rambo: The Video Game Looks So Bad It’s Good

You’ve seen the movie, now experience Rambo: The Video Game! The first officially licensed Rambo title to hit home consoles in what one might call, “a hilarious amount of time.” Fans of the classic games for SNES and NES shouldn’t be intimidated by these new-fangled graphics because honestly, this game hasn’t even been released and it looks dated. 

I know what you’re thinking and no, this isn’t a still from the original film. This is an in-game screenshot from the upcoming blockbuster game. If that impresses you, then feel free to let yourself get lost in the beauty of the latest trailer for Rambo: The Video Game.

I’m honestly not sure who the target audience is for this game. The only demographic I feel that would be interested in this are people born in the 60’s and 70’s who just recently began playing video games. I can’t picture any 13 year-olds dropping Call of Duty: Ghosts or Battlefield 4 for Rambo, but maybe this collection of hilariously terrible finishers might change their minds.

For those of you interested? Rambo: The Video Game is scheduled for release on Feb. 21, 2014 for Xbox 360, Ps3, and PC

  1. I need dis. I don’t know why, but as a child of the 80’s and a fan of so-bad-they’re-good games, I need dis. When it’s $20 or less (or at Red Box), I’ll play it just to see how terrible it is, but some games are better received for that reason alone. I enjoyed some horrible games because they were dirt cheap. HAZE, Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad, Damnation, Too Human.. I can’t even scratch the surface of my “bad game night” collection.

    1. Like my strange love for terrible horror movies, I have a strange love for terrible video games. Sometimes the worst games can be the most entertaining. I remember playing Alone in the Dark for the ragdoll alone.

      1. I think I own both versions of Alone in the Dark as well as the PS3 and 360 versions of Vampire Rain. Sometimes bad games just hit the right notes for some reason. Maybe going in with low expectations helps you notice the terrible charm?

      2. Usually the worst games provide experiences you just don’t get with the “good” ones. Sometimes trying something new can go horribly wrong in the best ways.

  2. I feel like even the devs are laughing at their own game. Still though, with a little bit o’ good ol’ bribery, IGN can give it a whopping 10/10 – because it’s like Skyrim…with guns.

    1. Well as long as they know they are releasing a giant mess of a game I think everyone will turn out just fine. If this game gets anything higher than a 5.0, I will be shocked.

      1. Inc. 6.0 rating on What’s Your Tag Blog!

        Seriously though… this does look pretty bad although the movement of the characters is pretty smooth. It’s the aesthetics of the game that make it look pretty terrible.
