Bionic Commando Review

 

It started with a remake, now it's a reboot.

There isn't much replay value in Bionic Commando, other than trying to complete all of the in game achievements that the game offers. They range for swing a certain distance to killing an amount of enemies. There are also many little 8-bit icons from...

REVIEW: "Swing shift" redefined

Dazzling array of acrobatic moves to perform.; Big enemies are an absolute blast to battle

Steep learning curve; lousy load times to boot

Duh, like who didn't see the story “twist” coming?

Bionic Commando Review (Xbox 360)

 

Bionic Commando places you in the city of Ancension, dealing with events ten years on from the NES release of the same title. The protagonist is Nathan “RAD” Spencer, a government operative working in the city. While serving time after being duped by...

Bionic Commando is a classic franchise and developer GRIN has done a reasonable job taking the game from a 2D side scrolling environment to a stylish 3D universe. The game is well presented, with Mike Patton (lead singer for Faith No More) doing an...

Yes, it's another in a long line of 8-bit arcade classics remade for modern consoles - which is strange, as only last year we had Bionic Commando Rearmed to download on Xbox Live and PS Network; itself a remake.

Great lighting and sound design ; The grapple hook is a cool tool ; Isn't bogged down by epic cut scenes ; You need to strategise when low on ammo ; Large city to explore ; Find hidden collectables for trophies

Multi-player mode is slightly 'meh ; Human enemies aren't much fun to kill ; Drowning is a common occurrence ; Could have been a tad longer

Bionic Commando, like its protagonist Nathan Spencer, is something rather average given a boost by incorporating parts from other things. Swinging across gaps with grapple hooks is nothing new - nor is shooting at soldiers or throwing heavy objects at...

Bionic Commando 360 Review

 

It has been 10 years since Nathan “Rad” Spencer defeated the Imperials alongside his battle buddy “Super Joe” Gibson. Since then however, many changes have occurred and Nathan Spencer, whom you assume the role as within the game, has been convicted of...

Graphically the game is a winner ; Cons ; Gameplay is of a poor standard ; Storyline is very basic and does not capture you ; Music is not used to an effective degree ; The game becomes repetitive very fast ; AAG Score: 5.5/10

Gameplay is of a poor standard ; Storyline is very basic and does not capture you ; Music is not used to an effective degree ; The game becomes repetitive very fast ; AAG Score: 5.5/10

Bionic Commando is like shooting tin ducks at a public fete with an air rifle. It was dull, unsatisfying and the rewards negligible. This may sound harsh, but besides the graphics, nothing really grabs you and pulls you in. An average game at best.
