what can i say, i was bit worried of buying thinking they may had killed the classic off. but they didnt, it was abosulute wonderful game and alot of action. only downfall is lack of quality boss, but its a nice game to play, alot of swinging action and very entertaining. i think this easily can be added to my collection as i can play again without being bored. recommended A+

If the sales figures are to be believed, then this game has been overlooked by the vast majority of the games playing public which is a real shame.

Grin (the developer) have done a good job with this and although the pacing can be a tad slow at the beginning, the overall game is a polished product and highly playable. Combat is supremely satisfying (although the tinny gun sound for the pistol is disappointing) but some of the more meatier weapons are definitely up to the task at hand. Where this game really excels though is in the use of the bionic arm. At first it seems unwieldy and hopelessly inaccurate but after an hour or two, you'll be amazed with how competent you'll become with it and you'll be grappling rock faces, ripping trams apart and throwing cars and enemies to the floor with consumate ease.

Technically, the game is also very nice and runs on Grin's own Diesel engine which must be commended for a smooth framerate and zero screen tearing. The soundtrack that accompanies the game is also excellent and the sound effects are nicely done (the deep robotic noises the Mechs make are particularly haunting.)

To summarise then, I'd say this really is a shamefully overlooked game and well worth a punt especially now its available at a cheaper price. Highly recommended.

ok graphics are not good as other games but the game play is awesome. once you've learn how to swing and move rapidly between buildings and other pending materials you cant stop playing. the story is short but its quality time playing it!!

Bionic commando is a great game that has excellent gameplay and graphics. I found the swinging controls a bit lunky and after a few too many falls ito pits of radiation i got the hang of it. As with most games from capcom its enjoyable and addictive i am glad i bought this game and i am sure any capcom fan new or old will agree

This game is amazing, the graphics, the gameplay, everything.
..Apart from maybe the story, which is a bit cliche.

Swinging elegantly through a jungle, slamming down in the middle of some enemies, lifting a rock up, and throwing it at a mech gorilla was never so satisfying.

Definitely THE best Capcom game of the year so far, and relatively cheap. Do yourself a favour and experience this amazing game, and never listen to critics again, form your own opinions. I did, and it got me one of the most fun games I have ever played.
