The premise of a cyborg commandos in the future who are now discrimanated against and are now being recalled into action could be made to make a legendary game. Unfortunately, Very little amunition and weapons choice make this game a pain to play the first few levels. But after you get the hang of swinging and unlock a couple of killer moves that can be done with your awesome bionic arm, this game is a blast to play. So, if you're a gamer who is willing to go through the bad to get to the great then you will enjoy this game. If not then don't bother.

I enjoyed the original bionic commando when I was a kid so I was interested to see how this generation's title would look. Overall, this was a solid game. However, there were quite a few flaws that kept the game from being perfect. First of all, the game was incredibly linear and the way the developers had of limiting your range or where you could go was by making those areas radioactive and deadly. I can't count the number of times I died because I swung into an area that was off-limits but could not swing out in time to avoid death. That was annoying. Also, most of the game is pretty flexible as far as where you can swing and grapple from. There are a few sections where this is not the case and being precise with the wire grapple was an exercise in frustration. I fell to a watery death many times. The game became progressively harder as can be expected but there were many sections towards the end that were ridiculously overrun with enemies. The final two boss fights were very easy though and it was a little anti-climactic. I won't give any spoilers here but there is one last plot twist in the game that I found to be completely ridiculous. I think the developers wanted to wow the player with this amazing information but ended up giving us a "What?" moment. moment. The challenges system was great and gave me something to push for as I increased the strength of Spencer for what was ahead. The swinging was fun in most areas and felt a little "spiderman like". Weapons were a little scarce but I believe that was the point. Overall, I would recommend this game but expect to need a lot of patience for certain areas and expect some goofy plot lines.
