Excerpt: Like Spider-Man with guns. Let me start off by saying that, to my memory, the first time that I played Bionic Commando was in the form of Bionic Commando Rearmed, Capcom’s remake of its classic side-scrolling shooter. After spending a few days with it, I came to the conclusion that it is one of the toughest games I have ever played…but I had a lot of fun playing it.
Excerpt: Activision’s Spider-Man games have achieved great success with the swing mechanic, thus, since Spider-Man 2 came along, the games have been as fluid and as graceful as the Spider-Man swing should be. With GRIN’s game being the newest Bionic Commando in years, obviously as you can swing through the sky it was going to receive comparisons to said Spider-Man games.
Conclusion: Medal of Honor ships with eight maps and four different game modes, not including a Hardcore mode that cycles through all four of the other modes. These modes include Team Assault, which is your standard team deathmatch, Sector Control, in which teams compete for certain points on the map and holding them against the enemy, Combat Mission, which requires one side to take care of objectives while battling the opposing forces, and finally Objective Raid which one side...
Conclusion: That pissed me off BIG TIME! So in a nutshell, good game, good graphics, good music, shitty acting, average story (ill edit this review later), and crap bonuses for buying Rearmed. Music: 4.5/5 Graphics:5/5 Acting: -5/5 Story: 3/5 Length:1/5 The game is extremely short.... 5 hrs max Overall: 3/5 good game, but it disapointed me. It was totally worth the 5 bucks! Thanks GameStop!

Summary: Parents need to know that this is a violent action game based on the 80s-era Nintendo Entertainment System game of the same name. Lead character Nathan Spencer uses a variety of weapons to kill enemies, including shotguns, machine guns, and grenade launchers. Human enemies often spew blood after death and decapitation is shown. Nathan can also toss cars or debris at foes. There is a lot of profanity in the game which is playable online.
