The publishers have released a special Rambo-esque montage to get your juices flowing and I have to admit the big kid in me just loves that theme tune.
There are movie icons and there are movie legends, in my opinion Sylvester Stallone is one of Hollywood’s often most underrated talents. One of his greatest inventions was his take on the surly character of John Rambo, with a movie franchise that has spanned most of my life Rambo films are high on the list of classic action hokum.
Now it is time for a Rambo game fit for this generation, the first screens have been released showing some spectacular environments although regardless of how pretty they are the game is going to need to be special to eclipse the 8-bit Commodore 64 version of First Blood part 2. Press release and screens after the break.
