Rule of media #47: if a title contains "The Video Game" or "The Movie", there is a significant possibility that a franchise is about to undergo serious abuse.
And yet, the latest trailer for Rambo: The Video Game looks like it might be a welcome exception to such laws. Who wouldn't want to wear the red bandana of Sly's traumatised veteran, running amok in the forests of the US and the deserts of... wherever the terrorists are at?
Developed by little-known studios Teyon, Rambo will take in various action sequences from First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rambo III. If the video is anything to go by, expect blood, bullets, blood, some stealth, explosions full of blood, explosions full of fire, knives and other sharp things. And blood.
If you enjoy blood, proceed to the video. If not, here are some shoes.
