  • Summary: PC enthusiasts are used to feeble ports of console games, and Bionic Commando is no exception. The usual signs of indifference to the platform are all here, such as onscreen prompts that assume you are using a console controller, and laughably few graphics options.
  • Pros: Using your bionic arm to swing around can be fun, Stringing arm-based attacks together is cool, A couple of enjoyable set-piece sequences

  • Cons: The arm becomes more of a detriment than an asset: It’s conveniently susceptible to radiation when you explore too much, and its weight assures that you’ll quickly drown if you accidentally swing into water and can’t find a way out fast enough.
