To round up this month's prolonged foray into Budget land, try out Rambo III for a shooty of epic proportions, with a smart adventure based subgame to boot.
Based over three different scenarios, Rambo's first task is to rescue the kidnapped Colonel Trautman.
As you enter the fort, keep constantly on guard for enemy patrols and any stray weapons lying around. Use only silent weapons if you want to remain undetected.
Once the Colonel is freed, your next task is to prime a number or pre-positioned bombs in the jungle. The counter will show how many more you need to set before making for the helicopter and escape.
The final, and most frantic, stage, sees you commandeering an enemy tank and blasting hell for leather for the border.
All in all, this excellent combination of action and adventure makes for an absolutely brilliant action offering. You'll need to be good to survive, but, if you don't, you're going to want to get right back in there to try again. After all, nobody likes being pushed, do they!
