Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2
11 March 2014
Conclusion: Summary Despite lots of new interesting ideas and a great use of it's prequel status to BC 09 regarding the plot, Rearmed 2 still seems like a bit of a step down from the original. However, the gameplay and controls are still tight and series fans will most likely enjoy the experience.
Excerpt: Your reaction to Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 will largely depend on your sensibilities as a gamer. If you're the kind of person who misses the good ol' days of 2D side-scrolling, precision platforming, and levels so large that you can get lost in them, you'll find a lot to enjoy here.

Best of all, the developers completely retooled the gameplay, allowing for the types of daring acrobatics one could only dream about...
Excerpt: Capcom has a good track record of avoiding the sophomore slump. Mega Man 2 and Street Fighter 2 defined entire eras of game design, and even B-list follow-ups like Strider 2 and Power Stone 2 managed to improve on predecessors that were known but not widely played.
