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 MS DOS version has detailed graphics (close to the Amiga and Atari ST versions) but also includes some static shots from the movie. The sprites move good as well. The game supports several graphics modes including CGA (4 colors), EGA (16 colors) in 320x200 resolution as well as a Hercules (!) graphics adapter with 720x350 pixels resolution! The sound is great and supports (among others) the Adlib sound hardware performing impressive music scores with some typical (but not sampled as found only on the Amiga version) sound effects.
