Next year Rambo will be blowing things up on your Xbox 360, PS3 or PC in a game published by UK based Reef Entertainment. MCV has revealed that the publisher secured the rights to develop a number of titles based around the character, so if this one goes well we could be in for a whole series of games featuring the one man army.
Craig Lewis, commercial director at Reef commented that “We have big ambitions for Reef and Rambo is the first step in establishing us as a worldwide player.” He also stated that “Rambo will be a triple-A title on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and will capture the gritty atmosphere and full-on action that made the Rambo movies so successful.”
You can’t fault his ambition, but I think we’ve all been burnt by hyperbole before. Still, if they genuinely do deliver something as full-on as the movies then this could be a lot of fun, and really, with Rambo’s reputation on the line, I don’t think they can afford to get it wrong.
