As someone who played the original Bionic Commando on the NES I can say wholeheartedly that this game does it justice on the next gen consoles. Initially it was pretty difficult to get the swing/release motion down just right but after a couple hours it became pretty much second nature. The graphics are fantastic, the environments well lit/populated. I would really like to have had some tougher major bosses to beat but overall I really enjoyed the rental. I would have been bummed had I actually purchased the game but it's definitely a must have rental.

At first we were not too shure about it, but as we perfected our skill we came to love it. Dont judge the game on the training area. It isnt an easy game. It is very challenging and fast paced. Its hard to perfect the grapple hook.After a while you can really get into the hang of it. It will be hard getting used to a new FPS without it. There are some really hard points in the game that take alot of patience to get through. Graphics are great. Weapons are cool. It has enough gore to keep me interested. It has the death quiver game glitch that we have come to love. YOU DONT WONT TO MISS THIS GAME. IT TAKES YOU IN A NEW DIRECTION FROM YOUR ORDINARY FIRST PERSON SHOOTERS. THE ONLY THING WE DIDNT LIKE ABOUT IT WAS THE SAVES ARE TOO FAR APART.

Loved the NES game, when I heard of a remastered version coming out I almost died. When this sequel was announced I needed it!
I see why some people might not like the game, many called it "Spiderman with guns". However I think people really underrate this game so much that it turns off many people before they play it and once they play it they aren't truly into playing it for what it is. A very fun and throw back-like game.
To me it was fun to finally try the swinging arm in a 3rd dimension space. The sound of the wind as you swing rapidly and the physics involved were just amazing.
Not a difficult game to master even though you have to have perfect timing sometimes; but you don't have to be perfect all the time. The bionic arm is not only for swinging around; the game designers thought of other uses for it too. Reaching for weapons and ammo, grabbing enemies to pound on them, and even to pull yourself towards any kind or surface.
The weapons were your standard shooting game weapons, however they did have the BC twist, the aiming was the only thing that put me a little off at the beginning. There was no option to change aim from right to left, even though it would be an easy fix with or without the bionic arm all you need to be able to do is move the camera angle! This is the only thing that made me real angry because it was such an easy fix. However at the same time it made me more aware and connected to the character knowing that he really only has one arm.
The story is not bad and there are plenty of throw back moments that would make a BC fan giddy. I really do hope that at some moment Capcom decides to release a sequel to the next gen version.
