Just Couldn't Get Into It

Bionic Commando is an okay game. It was fun to swing around with the arm, but that's all that it really has going for it. I didn't even finish the game because some parts are just really annoying. For instance, when you die they make you start at checkpoints further away from where you die. So that means you have to redo a bunch of parts before you get back to where you were before you die. It just gets annoying and frustrating and it doesn't make me really want to go back and do things all over again. It's worth checking out for a few days though, but a waste of time trying to finish it. There are a lot better games out there.

It's OK, just not my style of game

I played the original Bionic Commando and it was always cool. With this new and improved version, love the look of it, but gameplay isn't the best to me. Little things bugged me, like not being able to grapple anything at anytime, when I know the arm could reach what I was trying to grapple. And the lack of ammo given is ridiculous. I gave up on the board where you had to get to the crash recon site and everything is pretty much underwater. You had to go halfway across the board, trying to avoid sniper fire, JUST to get a sniper rifle. Then once you do, you had to fight one of those biotech robots on a broken highway surrounded my water. NO WAY!!!! When I fought the first two on that one area, I needed all that space to maneuver to get behind them to attack. Threw the game back in the envelope and shipped out.

Weak

Too Repetitive

The graphics aren't that bad, it was what you come to expect from the BC franchise actually. But the excessive swinging around on the same level over and over again is VERY annoying, to say the least.
If you ever do get to the end of the game, it just locks up anyways, so why bother. Yea, I'm a true believer if you start a game and get past the first 3-5 levels, then why not just finish it. Obviously could not finish the game because of the lock up when ya do get to the end.
As everyone else points out though, this game WAS a great game on the NES, til it came to the next-gen system's that is.
To be honest I do not think the majority of the people that gave this a bad rating, actually played the game, otherwise those people would have seen the actual playability of it. Every game on the market has its bad points, wether ya wish to admit it or not. It is just those games that you loved as a child that you expect to be better on the next-gen system's. Had high hopes on this one myself, hopefully another gaming company gets ahold of the game franchise and actually makes a second to this game, a BETTER BC instead of this crud.
