Bionic Commando (Xbox 360)

 

Bionic Commando is a third-person action game that likes to tease you. It dangles endless possibilities in front of you, only to snatch them away and replace them with limp gunplay and extended stretches of nothing. There are some good ideas here, and...

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2

 

My personal experience with anything Bionic Commando related was years and years ago where a friend of mine walked me through the old Nintendo game. We then proceeded to spend the rest of the day dieing, we were not very good at the game, I'm still...

Retro sidescroller with fantastic facial hair ; Cool chip tune songs ; Good graphics

Way to easy to break with glitches ; Can be frustrating with limited controls

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 is a good attempt at a retro styled game but really forgettable at the end of the day.

So you have a metallic arm that lets you pick up items from the other side of the room, swing along city rooftops with ease, and not to mention look totally bad-ass while doing it, what next? You upgrade it. Welcome to Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, an...

As far as remakes go, Bionic Commando Rearmed was one of the best. This 2008 release captured everything that was great about the original 8-bit game, while swapping in lush visuals and a vastly improved script. Best of all, the developers completely...

Don't be fooled by the similar look, Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 has a lot to offer fans of the series. The story is admittedly goofy and the gameplay takes some getting used to, but there are enough new ideas here to warrant a sequel. With its lush...

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 Review for the XBOX360

 

He might jump and have a mustache, but he sure ain't Mario.

More Bionic Commando; Challenge rooms are varied and difficult

Still confusing to control; Awkward weapon and item progression; Sluggish and tedious boss fights slow everything down; Normal enemies are just bullet sponges; Cheap level design and enemy placement towards the end of the game

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 Review

 

Our hook arm hero returns with the ability to jump and a sweet ‘stache. When Bionic Commando Rearmed was released back in 2009, there was purpose to it. The remake...

Good looking ; Solid 2D gameplay

Nothing new whatsoever ; No point to the added Jump ; No top-down levels

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2

 

A so-so sequel suffers due to unnecessary fixes.

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 is by no means a bad game, merely an okay one. Fatshark should have the opportunity to learn that what isn’t broken doesn’t need fixing.

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 Review Xbox 360 (xbla) Arcade. A little over 2 years ago dreams became reality when Capcom released a remake of the original Bionic Commando that showcased the excellence of retro gaming on the XBLA. Capcom believes th...

To wrap it all up in a nice little bow the best way to describe Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 is "The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful." With an interesting single player storyline and hours of entertaining gameplay fans will be thrilled with their...

Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2

 

Two years ago, Bionic Commando came back after a long absence with Rearmed - one of the finest remakes ever. It not only showed what made the source material so good, but truly added to the experience with redone graphics, a remixed soundtrack, some...

Rearmed 2 seemed like a dream game in theory because of how well-crafted Rearmed was, but it doesn't live up to that in execution. While it isn't an altogether terrible game, no part of it is as good as it could or should be given how polished Rearmed...

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 Review

 

Capcom made one of the most innovative platform shooters ever when they released Bionic Commando way back in the 80s. It took on a modern-day style with military motifs, but not the Rambo style that Konami's Contra embodied. Instead, it was high-tech,...

Rearmed 2 is far from a bad game and it can be a decent value at $15, but it never really excels past the standard set by its predecessor. I can think of at least half a dozen more interesting and entertaining platformers released in the last few years...

Product Specifications

The first true sequel to the classic 1988 Nintendo Entertainment System original, Bionic Commando sees the return of the bionically-enhanced Nathan "Rad" Spencer, voiced by Mike Patton, the former lead singer of Faith No More. Time has not been kind to Spencer: 10 years after his heroic defeat of the Imperials in the original game, 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. The perfect job for a Bionic Commando! Bionic Commando transposes the swing-and-shoot gameplay of the 8-bit original to a stunning 3D environment of towering buildings, suspended roadways and monorails, deep canyons and sheer rock faces, where every environment is scalable using swinging, scaling, climbing and wall-walking techniques.
