Review
Rambo IIISTORY / GAMEPLAY
Rambo III follows the plot of the blockbuster film starring Sylvester Stallone. The home computers version is split into three missions (instead of 6, found on the Mega Drive / Master System). Part one has a top down perspective and you explore the building Trautman could be held in, avoiding the enemies and lots of infra red security beams that will activate the alarm and unleash more enemies. In the second part you follow the same scenario but this time the action takes place outside. The final part changes to an Operation Wolf style shoot 'em up with tanks, soldiers and helicopters to shoot. But your gun may jam, which adds to the challenge of finally getting out alive. Although its simplistic gameplay, Rambo III has something to add in terms of playability, mainly because of the John Rambo figure. The average gamer should find the game a bit difficult at the beginning but the interface is quite easy to understand.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Atari ST version has colorful graphics with detailed objects and areas and good in-game music and sound effects. Unfortunately there is no use of any sampled sound effects and this is odd since the game doesn't have any special graphics requirements like parallax scrolling but, overall, Rambo III remains a decent game.
