Uwe Boll, scourge of videogame franchises everywhere and maker of awful videogame-based movies such as House of The Dead, has decided to start making a videogame himself, dubbed 1968 Tunnel Rats.

Not much is known about the game for the moment other than that which can be seen in the trailer below, but it appears to be a first-person shooter set in the Vietnam war, with plenty of tunnel based and jungle combat.

Oh, and there are helicopters too - something your army apparently never trained you for according to the trailer.

There really is very little information to go on here, though judging by the look of the graphics we'll say that the game is going to his the Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 - but probably not the Wii.

Will the game be as massively disappointing and cheesy as some of Uwe Boll's previous films, or could this actually manage to climb out of the mire of Boll's reputation and emerge gloriously as a surprisingly playable game? Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think in the forums.
