SG-1000 Reviews

Rambo: First Blood Part II

Rambo II was the Master System’s first big-name, two-player run-‘n-gun, and it was a pretty fun romp while it lasted. Varied environments and lots of enemies helped make up for the game’s relatively slow pace, and the soundtrack is highly underrated. This is one gem that Master System owners should give a try.
