One of The Greatest Games I Have Ever Played
Bionic Commando is simply the best updated version of a once out of date game. Bionic Commando is the altimate game for the Plastation 3. I can not count of how many times I have played this game. From the beginning to the end I am at the edge of my seat the whole time. I originaly bought this game simply because I had nothing better to do but little did I know that this game would be my all time favorite game. Bionic Commando's Story line is not as bleek as one may think. It starts with Spencer going out to find and take a devise of mass destruction before a large organization of terrorists do and with perfect gamplay a perfect group of acting voices this game can do little to nothing to make this game any better. although some parts in the game seem bad for example: Spencer's main way to destroy any obsticle in his path; whether that be the common soldier, a dangerous polycraft, or some other machanical monster is to through debris at them, however in some parts of the game you will find little to no debris, not even a torn up car or broken road sign that in a previous level were littered throught the walk way. But don't let that stop you from enjoing this amazing game and with the price cost of the game its self why wouldn't you buy this game.
I was waiting till Infamous to come out, but I couldn't wait so I just bought this game not expecting very much from it. This game was beyond my expectation. I read the reviews from gameinformer about the poor controls. however, after about an hour, I felt like pro and was swinging everywhere on the screen. The graphics were amazing, especially the Shadows. The only problem with graphics were some of the jaggy lines on the building at some point during the game. But this really doesn't affect the graphics that much. The voice acting and sound effects were WOW. I'm not sure about the length but I'm expecting good 30~50hours. The game becomes challenging as you process through the game and you will pull some stunt out to overcome the challenge. The online mode is rly rly rly addictive and fun. It's not COD but it still delivers pure fun. I'll be sticking with this game for while even when Infamous comes out. Then when I get bored I'll be playing inFAMOUS. By the way, I have never played any spider man games or past bionic commando games.
The Next Spider-Man 2
I say Spider-Man 2 because I could never get sick of it, and I could never play the original Bionic Commando. Yeah, yeah, Spider-Man 2 probably isn't a good game to all of you, but you could always do something in that game. Web-swinging was good enough to keep me occupied, but maybe I'll have to get used to Mechanical arm swinging. If they do use the same swinging method used in Spider-Man 2, I'll REALLY feel like I'm going 300-600 miles per hour. As for the regular gameplay, I want to see the arm do some serious fighting/weapon action. A bionic arm on an ex-government soldier that can't be used as a gun or at least some kind of dangerous close-combat action is not a real bionic arm. The graphics should be close to the same kind of graphics as Resident Evil 5 (It'll make me fell more comfortable with the game itself) and not glitch. The story line is already told in the summary of the game, but it better be at least an 8-hour long story mode, and you should be able to play around in the game once the story is over. Man I wish I still had Spider-Man 2.
BEST GAME EVER CREATED
This game used to be an arcade game for the first nintendo ever created and then they made it in to an amazing shooter. the graphics are seriously better than every other game. I have not even played the first nintendo game though, so you will still enjoy it. This games graphics should compare to like killzone 2 and gears of war2 put together. The controls are really easy to do special moves and feel like a modern day super hero. After plaing this game you will not ever stop and you will never ever play any other game as long as you live unless it is a sequal. I recomend this game to everybody. It has plenty of shooting and super hero moves. The online experiance is even better than the story mode which is also incredible. I hope everybody gives this game a try because i just got my copy no expecting much but once i put it in my ps3 i realized that this is a true next generation experience. Thanks for listening.
I almost passed on this game, based on some reviews at IGN and I think in Game Informer. However, this was one of my all time favorite NES games, so I caved in and bought it. So far I love it, graphics are gorgeous, story is great, and I like the challenge of timing swings right. Contrary to other reviewers, didn't have a problem at all with the controls, nor the radiation, nor getting killed by enemies. I like a game to be challenging, yet still move the story along. One of my favorites this year so far, next to Chronicles of Riddick. I would have rather gotten this on PC for better graphics, but couldn't wait. It inspired me to buy the revamped Bionic Commando: Rearmed on PSN, which is an awesome remake of the classic with a bangin techno soundtrack. The Art is phenomenally cool. 5 Stars +2 Thumbs up and One middle finger for the haters!
This game is AMAZING
every thing about this game is awesome the graphics are a little sketchy at times but most of the time there crystal clear i recommend this game to every one the online play is amazing it bring in a whole new concept to death match and team death match. if you got the money get this game. online play: theres a player right in front of you right as your about to shoot hes grappling away you go after him all of a sudden you in a grappling chase shooting at each other is flat out amazing. theres a good amount of weapons from pistols to snipers my favorite the bionic arm. theres abut 10 maps all very good. controls: very easy to learn just pay attention to the tutorial and before you know it your throwing people into meck bots. there are some flaws like the length of your grappling hook but once you get used to it it wont be a problem
The game is good.
I just bought this at GameStop yesterday, played it for a little bit, and I think it's really good. In "Bionic Commando", you play the role of Nathan Spencer, a man with a bionic arm. His best friend, Joe, becomes his boss. When Spencer goes against Joe's rules, he is court-martialed, and sentenced to death. Now he must clear his name for crimes he didn't commit. The game is really good. It sounds and looks so realistic, and the story is really well thought out. It's really good.
This game is one of the best games i ever played its really fun i like it alot but infamous is batter
Hoping to buy this,the action beautiful and well done to the maker.Swinging to buildings, my eyes open with gladness.Hope theres a movie in progress after the second saga I call it (Then there were 2)by bionic Comandoe. The maker can figure it out, so go for it.The game buts me into a mode of conquest against enemies that want to rule,but why destroy half, go for it all, but there's a hero that I want to play the missions or phases are awesome this out beats some of DC comics and Marvel Comics still holding at number 1! yeah boy, this game is smoking,blowing,shut up,put money where is,come one come all. Try the game you would never put the controller done. I can't wait, a gamer is impatient eger to get ready to bust the game wide open and share the victory.
interesting, but repetitive
I’d like to point out that the average review for 360 on this game is about 7.5, the average ps3 is about 8.6 (at time of this review) maybe ps3 is slightly different, maybe the ps3 players who reviewed this are a bit more open minded. Either way my review is based on the 360 version, but I’m pretty sure they are same game (but ps3 of coarse would get better graphics).
Bionic commando was a great game. However, it got repetitive to the point that I didn’t bother finishing the first time, and forget about any replay value. To be fair I’m a very picky gamer, I get bored of plenty of games, but that’s my review.
As for the game mechanics, and design creativity, they are very fun. You are a futuristic guy, lost his arm, military gave him a robotic one giving him super human abilities. One of the things you will use about 95% of the time, is the grappling hook ability. Swinging from ledge to ledge, climbing, and using it to fighting things. Basically a futuristic tech of spider man.
As far as upgrades and things to keep you hooked, theres a few, but it’s just that… few… It’s like the first assassins creed. It’s a straight b-line to the final mission. No side quests, no currency, nothing to work towards aside from completing the story line. New abilities and gear comes as you get farther through the story. It hurts it’s chances of keeping a gamers attention, and it completely destroys the replay value. No co op, and no multiplayer. To be fair if a gamer enjoyed this game, the story line is long. I think I spent a good 12-18 hours in game doing the main story, before moving on (aka theres even more then that). So if you get this game and get into it, theres nothing on the side to do, but you will have a good bit of main story to complete.
Would I recommend this game to others? Eh, mainly if they are a huge fan of spider man (swinging from ledge to ledge n such) If not, then not really. The story is interesting, theres a lot of fancy enemies and ruins of newyork, but in the end it’s a forgettable game, doesn’t leave much of an impression. I’d say it’s not for most, but might be for some. For how cheap it is now, you could find out.
