I genuinely wonder whether Reef Entertainment and Teyon are playing an elaborate double-bluff with Rambo: The Video Game. Whereas most film tie-ins end up overhyped and thoroughly disappointing, perhaps the upcoming licensed shooter is purposefully trying to drive expectations as low as humanly possible in order to pleasantly surprise the entire gaming community?
It would certainly explain this new footage, which painstakingly highlights the on-rails gameplay and prevalent QTEs to advantage. Genius. Absolute genius.
In fairness, there's always a place in our game collection for simple satisfying fun. And good games. We'll know if Rambo can be either of these things when it releases later this year on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
