Not that great
7 August 2005 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

There were 2 versions of Rambo III (once the most expensive film ever, and the biggest loss ever) released on home consoles. One was a first-person shooter that incorporated the light-gun (much like Operation Wolf) released on the Sega Master System and Commodore 64. This one was slightly better. The other was a top-down vertically and horizontally scrolling shooter (much, MUCH like the far superior Ikari Warriors). This is the version I got for the Mega Drive/Genesis.

As a shoot-'em-up it's boring. You never really feel the violence or feel the impact of war. You only get one gun, with a never ending supply of bullets. But you do get bombs and a bow with a limited supply of arrows. Still, the gameplay is pretty mundane and the targeting sequences in between the (very similar) levels don't distract enough from the dullness.

Nothing in this game really sticks out or makes an impression. The Genesis was capable of so much better than this. And why do stock photographs of Rutger Hauer show up in this when he was never in the film?
