a fun shooter for hardcore gamers
this game had nonstop action. a vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyy great shooter with perfect grafics.
People bashed this, don't know why...
Yes people, this is a good game. yes, it's also NOTHING like the original, but we have to learn to accept new ideas. I think the mechanics are great, the voice acting is awesome, an the graphics are almost breath-taking at some points. I say it's definitely worth five bucks.
Not the best, but not the worst.
I see some of the reviews below me seem to have enjoyed this game a little too much, if I can put my opinion out there. Yeah, it was pretty cool, but nothing to get so worked up over. I played for about 30 minutes before I gave up. Don't plan on going back to it either. Now, I don't want to come off as such a douche bag, but I just think it could have been better. And, to be honest, I would pass on this game. Or, play a demo first, because it's not really worth buying.
inches close to epic
One of the great sleeper games, panned for whatever reason by critics, the game is fun from front to back, if you like the classic, and have a chance to pick this one up..... do, for 7 bucks you can't go wrong, the only down side it's an over the shoulder shooter, not really my kind of camera system, but for this game it really does work nicely. great game and awesome price
Did not disapoint in any way , Incredable
for years ive passed this game by, due to the negative reviews, i had recently picked it up thinking "how bad could it be" played it, could not put the game down, rarely do i play a game completeley through ,my oppinion is Bionic Commando was Fantastic till the very end, i grew up with the nintendo and gameboy versions, and the game did not dissapoint, great music (stays true to the original soundtrack for nes) .
the gameplay was soo much fun, it took a bit of practice to get used to the controls, but once i got it down, i was swinging and kicking Butt in no time.check it out for yourself , again i came in thinking this game was going to be bad, man was i amazed on how good it actually was , i picked it up for 7 bucks, i definatley would have paid full price 60.00 when it came out. PLease make a sequal Capcom
Interesting, but repetitive
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.
Also for those younger gamers, note. This is a casual game, it doesn't take a intelligent mind to grasp the concept. A younger gamer could pick this up and have the hang of it in the first hour. Theres no complex customization or anything. So that's a bonus for kids, but con for the hardcore gamers
Good just not my cup of tea
This game was a lot of fun, but just not my type of game. A basic necessity I look for in games is customization. Weapons, outfits, abilities, etc. This game has none other then skills you learn throughout the story line. As it is a story line, after you play it once, the second time through you already know everything about it. Yes I love Rpg’s and the ability to choose multiple paths/options.
More specific to this game. The graphics are acceptable. The game play is very fun, but repetitive. Reminds me of my opinion of assassins creed 1. It’s fun, but slowly grows repetitive. The grapple system is the best part of this game. It gives you that tomb raider mixed with spider man concept. You constantly find yourself climbing and climbing. Like tomb raider takes a long time to get to high areas. Like spider man, it’s the quick timing of “grapple, swing, release grapple, while in mid air grapple the next object” rinse and repeat.
This game has several “boss” fights. The story line was ok, had it’s moments, but nothing amazing. By the time I reached the giant tunneling robotic snake boss, I beat him, and called it good enough.
Bottom line, this is an ok game, not amazing, but not terrible either. Also note that I’m mainly into RPG’s or complex FPS games, so fans of action/adventure games might like it even more.
This game is alright its got really easy achievements,but the downside of this game is the gameplay is from like GTA San Andres which was made in 2005 and this game in 2009 so that is a major downside but it is still fun and enjoyable your bionic arm really does make up for the bad gameplay look up the gameplayon youtube just to check it out for $7 i would probably get it
Better then i thought
I picked this game up thinking eh i guess... but when i first started to play it i was eh it's ok...then once i got betther with the bionic arm and got into the game a bit....this game totally rocks. For 7 bucks u cant go wrong. I had alot fun that i didnt think was going to happen. Dont listen to the lower reviews who gave it a lower score this game for the price rocks.
It's Spider-Man with guns. Perfect combat and everything. Pummel with your arm and swing around. Use an array of weapons, fight great bosses and has the greatest ending I have seen so far.
