Random Screenshot 02: Rambo

Rambo (NES) Acclaim 1987

The movie series Rambo is known for it's non-stop action sequences and "take no bullshit" attitude. The NES game, Rambo is quite the opposite. The game could have easily copied Contra's run and gun stlye, but for the most part Rambo is running around with only a knife. If you manage to make it to the end of this game, then you are probably all to familiar with the screen above. After you defeat the final boss, Rambo's commander comes out to greet him. For a brief period Rambo gets this wacky new ability to shoot a Chinese character (the symbol for Anger) from his fist. If you hit Rambo's commander with the Chinese character, then he turns into a frog. Yeah...a frog. Strangely, this comical scene almost makes this horrible game worth beating. Almost.
