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...
Excerpt: The original NES version of Bionic Commando is regarded by many platformer fans as being one of the finest examples in the genre: a frantic, ever-challenging shooter that blows raspberries at convention by scrapping the hero's ability to jump. Rather than leaping about, the players must use their grappling-hook arm to swing from ledge to ledge.
Excerpt: When you're propelling Spencer at great speed around the various environments in Ascension city, linking together swings with the fluidity of a prize-winning chimp acrobat, Bionic Commando is a great deal of fun. The thrill of leaping into a giant chasm, only to latch on to a ledge moments before you prepare to smash into the ground with great force is something that few games can offer.
Summary: Imagine you are playing a Spider-Man game, but half the buildings are missing, the swing mechanic doesn't work nearly as well, all of Spidey's witticisms are replaced with juvenile military angst, and someone keeps slapping the back of your head with a wiffle bat. This is Bionic Commando.
Excerpt: It's been a long time in the making, but Spencer is back with his first 3D adventure in Capcom's Bionic Commando , based on the hit arcade and Nintendo Entertainment System's side-scrolling shooter. While there is a remake of the original available for download on Xbox Live Arcade (I highly recommend that one by the way...
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!
