Rearmed and Dangerous

23 February 2011
  • Conclusion: A step back from the first game, lacking the retro appeal and suffering from what seems to be lazy level design and a paucity of textures. It's still fun to swing around, just not for the half-dozen hours it takes to slog through the whole experience.

  • Summary: The 8-bit hero with the ass-kicking appendage returns and -- as you've probably heard -- he can now jump. The new feature will probably polarize players, but it's ultimately a welcome addition once you've mastered it.
  • Pros: He finally jumps, Super-slick presentation values, Cool boss battles, Content aplenty
  • Cons: Insta-deaths, Some might consider the fact he can jump sacrilege

  • Excerpt: This downloadable sequel introduces some new gameplay flourishes and moves into Rad Spencer's arsenal, but is bogged down by disappointing level design and a lack of innovation.
  • Pros: It's nice to look at, with crisp 2.5D graphics providing an impressive sense of depth; swinging is still uncommonly fun.

  • Conclusion: The controls are a serious problem in Rearmed 2, and slapdash level design doesn't do you any favors. The levels in this game are sprawling obstacle courses that hide secrets, alternate routes, and surprises in bountiful supply, and when you have a good rhythm, it's possible to appreciate the...
  • Pros: Lots of replay value and bonus content, Eye-catching visuals with plenty of neat effects.
  • Cons: Sluggish controls undermine all of your actions, Chaotic, directionless level design, Cannon-fodder enemies are a waste of time, Cheap deaths.

Unresponsive controls and confusing level design make Rad Spencer's latest adventure an exercise in frustration.

  • Summary: At the bottom of the crumbling tower that was once the mighty Bionic Commando, a culprit for the collapse was found: the jump button. It seems like such an innocuous inclusion.
  • Pros: Lots of replay value and bonus content, Eye-catching visuals with plenty of neat effects
  • Cons: Sluggish controls undermine all of your actions, Chaotic, directionless level design, Cannon-fodder enemies are a waste of time, Cheap deaths

  • Conclusion: Needless to say, we expected more from this sequel. Fat Shark have managed to shoot themselves in the foot by simplifying a formula that worked rather well. Rearmed 2 does enough to remind players as to why the series is often remembered fondly, but quickly blurs the image by stuttering over its...

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
2 February 2011
  • Excerpt: was a big name back in the day, and Capcom tried to resurrect it in two distinct forms this generation. The first was the ill-fated, full-3D title for consoles that fell well short of expectations, but the second was the super fun downloadable adventure that reminded us of the 8-bit generation.

  • Excerpt: Unshackled from the obligations of a strict retro remake, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 is free to take some liberties with the rulebook its predecessor was forced to abide by. And take liberties it does.
