Arm yourself! The 20 year wait is over as Bionic Commando swings back into action! The first true sequel to the classic 1988 Nintendo Entertainment System original, Bionic Commando sees the return of the bionically-enhanced Nathan "R.A.D." Spencer. Time has not been kind to Spencer: five years after his heroic defeat of the Imperials, he has been betrayed by the government he swore to serve, imprisoned for crimes he didn't commit, and sentenced to death.

On the very day of Spencer's execution, terrorists detonate a massive experimental weapon in Ascension City, unleashing an intense earthquake that has turned the city into rubble and wiped out its population. With the terrain in ruins and the city's air defense grid now in the control of a massive terrorist force whose goal remains unclear, the FSA have only one option left - a behind-the-lines assault.

It's the perfect job for a Bionic Commando!
  • Use the bionic arm to swing between towering skyscrapers at breathtaking speed, hook onto distant objects, zip up on hanging girders and choose your own route through the game
  • Gameplay that moves through horizontal and vertical environments - a 3D game that truly uses all three dimensions
  • Full multiplayer mode with rich stat-tracking to check whether you're a true commando or a lowly private
  • Use the power of the bionic arm - and of next-gen physics - to realistically throw massive objects, pummel opponents, whip enemies into the air, or pull the landscape apart
  • Arm yourself with a variety of weapons worthy of a Bionic Commando
  • Starring Mike Patton, the lead singer of Faith No More, as the voice of Nathan Spencer

Terrible game, The graphics are excellent no complaints there, however the gameplay is awful the loading times are ridiculously slow and the worst thing of all is the swinging, its a nice idea and is fun for the first 30 seconds then it becomse tedious and downright irritating. Oh and did I mention the combat? There are large numbers of enemies equipped with far more advanced weapons than you, and all you have to take them on with is a pathetic little pistol with 50 rounds of ammo this means that death is a frequent experience, which I wouldn't mind if the checkpoint system was half decent, but its terrible!
Save your hard earned £30 and spend it on Jelly Babies its a much better investment.

Well this game has so many flaws and only one redeemable quality and that is the swinging ( but only when you get the knack of it ) every thing else was an after thought. The flaws in the game and there are many are so annoying you will want to teach the game to fly but unlike the commando it will not wall latch. The main 3 flaws are as follows 1. The radiation, If you step off the path by an inch you die, I lost track of the amount of times died. 2.The shocking save ability truely poor no thought went into this, the developers must have forgotten about saves in mid game which is diabolical, so if you die just before the end of a mission you do not pass go and you do not collect £200 but what you do, do is start back from the beggining of the mission. And gripe 3. When you die any achievements you unlocked reguarding upgrades, well, you loose them everything you collected after your last save, I have a word for that but it would not be acceptable to write so I will let you imagine what it is. So to finalise this game had so much potential and failed dismally this is not a game I would recommend unless you are a masochist and enjoy self harm, that being said if you really must play this game, rent it don't buy it.

I love the arcade version and i wasnt sure if capcom could make it 3D and good and when i started playing my mind was put to rest they have made it easy for new players with a good story line i think and how the game plays is very well done and worth the wait overall i think that the game is well made and well designed and its a thumbs up from me! :)

Game mechanics (swing the bionic arm) are a bit trycky at first since there aren't so many games that focus on this but once you learn, the game feels so smooth and rewarding... One of the few games I know that is meant to be played on it's hardest difficulty level so you can get the feel of old school hazarous platforming games.

Graphically doesn't stand out but if you pay attention to detail (closer objects blurs as you focus your sight on the one far way and the same if you do the contray... the water effects at the forest...) you can discover fine stuff there.

This game got bashed unfairly but doesn't desevere less than a score of 7. It's not a game for everyone but has some of the smartest moves I've seen lately in the industry:

Collectible items are reasonably big and bright (neon) colored so are easy to find in most cases... but hard to get sometimes, since this can be considered a platformer (with shooting in it) Oh, and they'll unlock concept art so serves a purpose.

There's also tasks to do ingame such as killing 3 enemies using shotgun while swinging and such. The kind of stuff that grants you an achievement. You got killed, restat at the checkpoint and then forgive about it since it's on your gamerscore. ERROR. Those unlock upgrades for your armor and weapons (in a similar way that perks works for The Saboteur) so you'll want to get it done in the same saved game not just for your gamerscore but to improbe your chances to survive later in the game. Clever!

IMHO you'll have a hard time trying to get more for your money that this title throws at you at its bargain price.
