Bionic Commando

 

In 1988, Capcom released Bionic Commando for the NES.  It was a side-scrolling action game in which the protagonist, Radd Spencer, used his bionic arm to get him through conflicts behind enemy lines to rescue the imprisoned Super Joe.  Bionic Commando...

A shoddy, shoddy port.

A shoddy, shoddy port.

Mouse and keyboard controls work well, even if you have to figure them out on your own

Crap video options; lots of screen tearing and some graphical glitches; controls obviously still geared toward 360 controller

A third-person brawler with a bonkers plot device

Swing mechanics are fluid and easy to control ; Some great set-pieces ; Offers a hefty challenge

Not enough exploration allowed ; Annoying radiation deaths ; Too much time on loading screens

Bionic Commando is the reason why the PC needs a rental service: it’s a fun title that won't take more than 12 hours to complete and offers no real incentive for a replay. It could be worth a try when it goes on sale.

The PC port of this inconsistent action adventure smacks of indifference.

Using your bionic arm to swing around can be fun ; Stringing arm-based attacks together is cool ; A couple of enjoyable set-piece sequences

The shooting stinks ; Lame story, featuring a completely unlikable protagonist ; Radiation is annoying and restricts exploration ; No effort made to tailor the port to the platform

After a 20-year wait, Bionic Commando feels a little lackluster

If you're a diehard Bionic Commando fan, there's nothing that will stop you from buying and enjoying this one. For the rest of us, it feels a little mediocre given what similar titles are offering these days.

Capcom's classic, Bionic Commando, made a great impact on the North American market back in 1988. Featuring a compelling lead character and his unique bionic arm used to swing every which way, BC was a success on the C64 and in arcades. The popularity...

Although they have the same title, the 2009 high-def PC version of Bionic Commando is a sequel to the 1988 8-bit game for Nintendo Entertainment System -- at least as far as the slightly re-envisioned story goes. Players return to the role of Nathan

Getting into the swing of things with Bionic Commando…

This is surprisingly old-fashioned skill based fun, but eventually limited by linear level design.
