I don't see why there is so much hate for this game. It was great! It can be clunky at first but if you put more than 20 minutes into the game you'll start to really get a hang of it. I started playing this "God awful" game on the multi-player demo, talk about a cold start. That was all hitting the ground running full speed.
The cut scenes in the game were solid and made me really enjoy the game tenfold.
the gameplay was hard at first but if you just quit pointing out all the mess up's and enjoy the game, it really became great, picking up foes and tossing them over a cliff or into a flying robot was just plain fun. I'm guessing that most of you got stuck in the start of the game and freaked out, or didn't play the "how-to" section in the menu. You can take the greatest game ever (Zelda ocrania of time, or wind waker) and ruin it at a hard core rate if you don't know what your doing and or where your going. All you have to do is scream and shout about how he won't spin when you want him or how you have to travel to much and to slowly and it will trash the whole game. Good job, you ruined the greatest game ever.
The graphics in the game were fantastic, and I rest my case.
Now one of the most enjoyable things I liked about the game was the hidden jokes and reference's towards other games. Grin was a great company and it was people that don't know how to play games or care for taking their time to learn one that doomed this company in the first place. Everyone asks for something "New" and more "Interesting in terms of gameplay" yet when you get it, you just yell at it and bash it into the ground.
I rated this game a 9 outta 10 due to the greatness I saw in it as well as trying to push the score higher cuz you guys know nothing about rating a game.
I've never written a review for any game, but when i see the rating that this game has it makes me wonder why would ppl give it such a low rating. Like any other game, it starts off easy with limited powers. as the game progresses you learn more techniques and abilities. as well as more weapons (heat sensored RPG's, machine guns, grenade lauchers, etc). Pretty easy game to get Platinum...
So dont pay attention to the rating on this game, its probably from ppl that kept dying because they suck. or from ppl that expect to get a rocket launcher as soon as you start the game... So Rent It, you wont b dissapointed, or gamefly will give you one month of free subscription... or not... lol... Just take my word for it...

This game is top notch work. Bionic Commando, is based off a old retro console classic from back in the early days. Bionic Commando, is by far a very unique and different game. The controls are real easy, which that is, after you get the hang of the motion in grappling around. The game is SORTA like Spider Man games on how you swing, but the vertical and horizontal accent is what makes this game nothing like those spider man titles.
In Bionic Commando, you play as Nathan Spencer, a covert ops specialist, that is apart of a Military force that equips Bionic machinery to aid the soldiers threw their battles. Being a threat, these bionic soldiers, the military enforces condemn, imprisoning, and removing soldiers from the field who was armed with these Bionic tools. All accounted by the Government, that use of Bionic Weapons are not humane, or even human. Nathan, while a Ex Bionic Commando and now a prisoner, is given a chance to use his Bionic Arm again by the same people who stripped it from him, The Military. But, Nathan has to help the Military defeat these terrorist who has invaded, Ascension City.
I was really wanting a new sort of game that was just not average shooting, blow up stuff, but was plain fun. So I went out and bought this one, after I heard it had Multiplayer. This game is marvelous. The motion is very dynamic, smooth, and brilliant. The interface is the tricky part. Using every single angle to swing around too, takes getting use to. However, once you get use to what grappling angles will allow you to do fly, drop, jump, or even spin around objects, you soon realize, that this game is so well crafted and that there is no other game as cool as Bionic Commando. The graphics are very well composed and well rendered. With a 8 multiplayer deathmatch, Team deathmatch, and capture the flag, you will want to keep this one.
I never played any of them retro versions of this title on other consoles cause it looked wack. But I'm very impressed with this game.
