Default I'm addicted to Bionic Commando!

Yep, it has to be the best PSN game i've ever played.

Nope never played the original

Yep, enjoying it more than any disc based game right now.

Nope, I won't be sleeping tonight because it's amazing.

I remember the NES version. Capcom is to be commended for the improvements. Too bad they didn't add a jump button or some control while freefalling.

But this is how games should be remastered.

I played the original. A friend of mine has a modded Xbox with a zillion NES games on it including Bionic Commando and I got him hooked on it two years ago because he'd never played before. I was thrilled to hear of the remake. The PSN is nice enough to offer a demo of both Bionic Commando Rearmed *and* 1942.

PS, the reviews of the game all seem to mention how incredibly difficult it is...so like, don't feel bad if it takes awhile to play through o_O

A jump button? Blasphemy! Methinks you're missing the point of Bionic Commando...

No not at all. I see my enemies hoping over obstacles in order to take cover. Wish I could too. Also I'd like to jump and then catch something with my hook midair.

The original was kind of a bitch to play through too in places.

nah, I think it's fair. Now you have to strategise (spelling?)

Just imagine your guy is like a tank (taking way more bullets then the enemy) and his land agility is crappy because he can swing like a monkey. so his legs can't spring his heavy body more than a run and the government decided that he needs an arm to get him off the ground or something.

It's my understanding that they tried to copy the game exactly; save for a few additional bonus elements and the improved graphics. Side-scrollers back in the day had a reputation for being impossible...I wish someone would've mentioned that to me when I was 8 so it wouldn't have ruined my self-esteem for the rest of my life...I think Capcom should subsidize my therapy -_-

PS, if Bionic Commando had a jump function it would cease to be as unique as it is, thus, missing the entire point.
