Xtreme Classix - Rambo

John Rambo is a Vietnam veteran on a quest to rescue POWs that were left behind. He is also rude, unorthodox, perhaps a little psychotic, and for the most part bulletproof.

You're deep in enemy territory. But you've got to penetrate it further and get through to the concentration camps. It's the only way you'll save your fellow countrymen from certain death.

Along the way, you must battle infantrymen, artillerymen, knife soldiers, snipers, flame throwers, rocket launchers and more. All of whom would much rather see you dead than alive.

You're equipped with an M-60 and a five-hit supply of Arrow-bombs. Beyond that, all you have is your savage strength and steel nerves.

You'll enter six different levels in all -- each in different terrain. There's a jungle, a forest, a swamp, a desert, a mountain and seacoast. At the end of each round, destroy the part of the barricade that changes color with your Arrow-bomb. Only then will the road to the next level be reached.
--From the Sega Master System Rambo instruction manual.

You'll have to use the most advanced guerrilla warfare tactics to rescue the captives from well-guarded concentration camps.

The Rescue

Hand-to-hand combat! Grenades bursting! Machine guns rattling! Explosions, smoke, and the faces of men suddenly caught dead by a bullet.

These pictures burn in the mind of a man helping to build a simple temple in the mountains. The man is John Rambo, private citizen, former Green Beret. In Vietnam, Rambo earned his rep as a hero who couldn't be stopped, even in the face of impossible danger. Now he spends his days in a forgotten village, struggling with the anguish of memories he can't shake.

But today a stranger appears at the temple. "Rambo" the man says, "I've been looking for you"

Rambo stares at the speaker. The pain of the memories fades as he recognizes his old friend.
"Colonel Trautman!" Rambo says. "Why are you here?"

"Because I need you. I'm going into Afghanistan on a top secret mission. Right now the border is crawling with Russians. But I've got to get in there! You're the only one I can trust to get me across the border alive!"
Rambo's heart cringes at the idea of more war — for what! He gazes into the distance, remembering past horrors.

"Sorry, Colonel. My war is over."

Deep in a night-shrouded mountain pass somewhere between Pakistan and Afghanistan, three jeeps led by Colonel Trautman attempt to cross the border. Suddenly the sound of raging thunder surrounds them. A Russian Hind helicopter is in pursuit and firing! Before they can reach cover, two jeeps are hit and demolished! Then a voice booms out: "You cannot escape! Drop your weapons now!"

"Trautman's been caught!"

Hearing this, Rambo starts to boil with anger. All through Vietnam, Trautman was the only one who understood his deepest feelings. The Colonel was like a father to him. Now his life is at stake! If only Rambo had gone with him into Afghanistan! If only... if only...

Rambo turns to the agent who brought him the news. "I'm going after him! I want you to get my supplies. They've got Trautman, and now they're going to get their worst nightmare!"
--From the Sega Genesis Rambo 3 instruction manual.

     OK, you are Rambo which means two things: you shouldn’t be without your medication and you can expect to be beaten up early and often. Has Sylvester Stallone ever played a character that wasn’t a human punching bag? Our Hero, like the real Rambo and Timex watches, can take a kicking and keep on ticking. It takes a lot to kill him, but the Commies throw a lot at him. You’d better be fast or you won’t last.

     And couldn't Rambo at least wear a tee-shirt? Like what does he think is going to stop the bullets? Adrian's face? ADRIAN! Yeah, I guess Rambo wouldn't be Rambo if he could protect himself. Just marches into the gunfire wearing nothing but his dogtags.

     Ain’t nobody, and I mean NOBODY, is gonna make it through the first scene on the first try. OK, the English might be bad, but them Commies are worse. If you are gonna sit there and correct my grammar, then you can put yourself on the fire now, cause you are already cooked.

     Anybody got a clue as to what that last paragraph meant and why it’s in this review?

     This game has more action than a popcorn popper. Commies keep coming at you from every direction and all you have are explosive arrows, time bombs, your trusty knife and a machine gun to fight them with. Actually that is a nice cache of weaponry. So what’s your problem? It isn’t as if you have only your wits and some kitchen mitts!

     This is a rare game where you can kill until you puke! Wait a second, aren’t all action games like that? Well whatever, the game plays out on a military base, not a kindergarten, so tough guys should already know their way around. All you need is a turkey and a parade and it would be a Rambo Thanksgiving.

     There are six missions to keep you busy with intense fighting and graphic sounds. As you slog your weary way from one mission to another just assume that things will get worse before they get…no, just assume things are going to get worse.

     You can hear your explosive arrow charging up and can almost feel the bullets pass by you by the sound of the gunfire but then some slack-jaw sound technician makes bombs sound like machine gun fire and you are more confused than Rambo reading the Business Section. The first dozen times I used them, I just thought the enemy was blasting me. But the explosions make up for it by throwing fire and shrapnel everywhere. It is a beautiful sight.

     The opening sequence was AWESOME! I almost headed for Canada when I saw it.
