Default The Official Bionic Commando thread

I'm fairly interested in how this game gonna do so I was hoping we could discuss it here.

Any reviews out so far? I can't see from work.

It's hard to forget the unresponsive controls, ludicrous story, and questionable combat encounters. The game is uneven and inconsistent enough to scare away even eager fans who have patiently waited 20 years for another swing. [June 2009, p.83]
I don't have my issue yet and they don't have the full review on the site yet, this is what i got from metacritic

More money for inFamous then. I'll wait for more reviews but if this is the general scoring, this will be bargain bin material.

My issue of Edge came in the other day and they also have a review. They gave it a 6, but then they also gave Wolverine a 6 as well.

Quote:
The game looks wonderful for the most part, with striking contrasts between its crumbling skyline, underground caverns and verdant valleys, all furnished in far greater detail than a 'proper' open world would allow. Its mechanized enemies do a great job of hounding you across this terrain, seldom granting an easy or long-range shot. But the overriding impression is of a game that's physically too big for its action. Vast portions of each level, none of which have any narrative structure, exist solely to prolong Spencer's journey between battles that struggle to impose themselves within these huge arenas. When they succeed, such as during an early encounter with rooftop snipers, the game excels.

Yeah, I think for me the game may have dropped to "purchase at a later date."

I still want it, but there are games like Rock Band Beatles and Brutal Legend that I want far, FAR more.

Judd was on the defensive in full force when he posted on the PS blog announcing the price reduction of the remake. Given how he talked of Capcom management and other developers at the company (some at Platinum) after the remake's performance, it's hard to feel bad about this. He literally said that he didn't worry about his remarks reaching the higher ups because they don't speak English.
