Not exactly the most glowing compliment imaginable, but every time I see more of Rambo: The Video Game, I can't help but admire its steadfast refusal to raise our expectations. Following what can only be described as a hilariously terrible trailer last year, the perennial tie-in has received some slightly less atrocious footage entitled 'Machine Of War.' We assume that 'War Machine' was trademarked, then.
Teyon's FPS is set to be a mix of traditional shooting with some stealth sections, "QTE Fights" (no, really) and turret sections. Grunts will also get stabbed in the throat on a regular basis, or stand around motionless watching Rambo as he blows up a truck behind them.
Look: this is happening, and there's absolutely nothing we can do to stop it. Hopefully Rambo: The Video Game will at least manage to provide some simple and satisfying fun when it releases on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 later this year. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you make of it.
I'll request a review copy... whether they'll actually issue any is another matter entirely.
