Product Details:

The first true sequel to the classic 1988 Nintendo Entertainment System original, Bionic Commando sees the return of the bionically-enhanced Nathan "Rad" Spencer, voiced by Mike Patton, the former lead singer of Faith No More. Time has not been kind to Spencer: 10 years after his heroic defeat of the Imperials in the original game, he has been betrayed by the government he swore to serve, imprisoned for crimes he didn't commit, and sentenced to death.

On the very day of Spencer's execution, terrorists detonate a massive experimental weapon in Ascension City, unleashing an intense earthquake that has turned the city into rubble and wiped out its population. With the terrain in ruins and the city's air defense grid now in the control of a massive terrorist force whose goal remains unclear, the FSA have only one option left - a behind-the-lines assault. The perfect job for a Bionic Commando.

Bionic Commando transposes the swing-and-shoot gameplay of the 8-bit original to a stunning 3D environment of towering buildings, suspended roadways and monorails, deep canyons and sheer rock faces, where every environment is scalable using swinging, scaling, climbing and wall-walking techniques. Game Features:

  • Use the bionic arm to swing between towering skyscrapers at breathtaking speed, hook onto distant objects, zip up on hanging girders and choose your own route through the game
  • Explore anywhere - on land, in the air, or swinging from the top of 50-story skyscrapers - in a game that redefines 3D action
  • Gameplay that moves through horizontal and vertical environments - a 3D game that truly uses all three dimensions
  • Use the power of the bionic arm - and of next-gen physics - to realistically throw massive objects, pummel opponents, whip enemies into the air, or pull the landscape apart
  • Arm yourself with a variety of weapons worthy of a Bionic Commando
  • Starring Mike Patton, the former lead singer of Faith No More, as the voice of Nathan Spencer
  • Published by Capcom, the makers of the Resident Evil and Street Fighter series as well as next-gen hits Lost Planet and Dead Rising
  • Developed by Swedish studio GRIN, developers of the highly acclaimed Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter series for PC
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Game but... How come no one plays multiplayer anymore? Is everyone still playing them FPS games. This game is the one people should play multiplayer on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor This is a really bad video game, it could have been great but it's very limited. The only way to play this game is in a straight line, you have very limited field of action. The weapons you get are really useless. Other that the "bionic (unnecessary) arm" there's not much to talk about. Avoid if you can.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Grappling Hook Will Take You Nowhere After seeing this game for the first time, I thought it looked pretty darn appealing. Unfortunately, this is when your original look deceives you. I first started out trying the multiplayer. Nobody was playing! That was saying a lot as is. So I just brushed that off and went onto the campaign. The story is lacking. You play as Nathan Spencer, a bionic who has been in prison for five years. Terrorists were attacking Ascension City (where the game takes place in) and you're just following orders from your superiors all the way through. In turn, Spencer gets answers about his wife. The story is predictable and the ending is atrocious. I dunno why this game came out.. The graphics are pretty, I'll give it that, but that's all it has going for it. The gameplay is repetitive and left to be desired. At first, I didn't care if the game was linear and not open world. But you get no freedom whatsoever. You might as well just run through the entire game. I always love swinging into radiation. This got me thinking. If you were playing a game that was linear, which would you prefer, a game that has harmless invisible walls or a game that has a border that will kill you (the radiation)? You will swing into radiation A LOT! There is no variety in the game whatsoever. The guns in it are boring guns. I would love some cool interesting guns in it. The main protagonist is unlikable. I hate it when games have unlikable protagonists.. The controls are kind of easy to learn. It does control well and the buttons are responsive. Now there is one thing I really like about this game. The advertisements. I love advertisements in games. I saw ads of the Capcom game Dark Void and build-boards that would say "Rearmed". Which is the other downloadable Bionic Commando game. You should avoid this game. If you want to rent it, go ahead. But when I was playing, I was wishing for it to end. Play at your own risk. Overall 5.50/10.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
