Not worth it


100% disagree. During last years Game Day sale this was $20 and I picked it up. I knew going into it that it wasn't going to be as good as BCR or anything. It is an enjoyable game and that for $6 or so is a great deal.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I thought this game was really good. Underrated. Maybe because I didn't grow up with the original BC, but this was good.

Agree with both of these, I liked the game a lot. Once you get the hang of it swinging was really fun. Plus, I enjoyed playing a game that wasn't a complete cakewalk.

I really, really enjoyed it for what it was. I got it for $30 after release, played through it, and then took it back, but I really enjoyed it.

Hated it, but it was worth the $8.99 new / shipped I got it from newegg for. On X360 make sure you install to HDD. On PS3... well I hope you enjoy load screens - because that's 3/4 of the game.

I enjoy when people blow things way out of proportion. It's been over a year since I beat the game and I am sure there are loading times but it is in no way close to 75% of the game. I have no idea what % it really is, but if I had to guess MAYBE it's 10% or so. I suppose if you suck at the game and die a lot you'll see a lot of loading screens but that's not the fault of anyone but the person playing the game.

I too bought it at $20 after launch. Thought it was ok, but sold it for profit. Purchased it 2 times now on newegg when it was like $7-8 shipped, but both times used it as trade fodder here on CAG before I even opened it.

Now that it has dropped in price permanently, I'll wait for my backlog to decrease and pick it up. It's a fun game for <$10

I got it for $20 last summer like some of the other posters.

Great, underrated games. Must buy under $10.

Bought it a few months back and I enjoyed it alot more then i thought. Only complaint in the game is just the overly macho voice acting and WTF story, but other then that, the gameplay is alot of fun.

I liked the game. Using the Bionic arm was fun, but the story gets really silly at the end.

Oh and a smidge off topic, but Bionic Commando has easily one of my favorite soundtracks in a game as well.

I enjoyed this game more than I thought I would. My only advice is not to bother with trying to find all the collectibles on your first playthrough. I tried to do it at first, but found it too frustrating. Once I gave up on that, I had a lot of fun swinging around.

And yeah, the story gets pretty bizarre at the end.

It's a great game for <$10. There's some weird things with it, such as the explanation about why he doesn't take damage when he falls 1000 ft...
Spoiler


The swinging is fun though.

Yeah, I loved it. One of the handful of games from last year I'm keeping in my collection.

I *DID* grow up with Bionic Commando, and play through it again every few years, and I loved this, different as it is. I actually like this a lot more than the Rearmed remake, although I think that's okay. For me it goes Bionic Commando (NES) > Bionic Commando (Current gen) > Bionic Commando: Rearmed > Bionic Commando (GBC) > Bionic Commando (Arcade)

Bought it a few months back and I enjoyed it alot more then i thought. Only complaint in the game is just the overly macho voice acting and WTF story, but other then that, the gameplay is alot of fun.


For me those were positive :-D I love Nathan and the other larger than life characters. And remember, this is the sequel to a game where you kill a resurrected Hitler :lol:

Thanks, I've had a $5 RZ cert for months now (since I hardly go to BB) and I might as well spend it on this.

Thanks for the fyi. I wound up picking it up after watching the review on gametrailers. Looked just like Lost Planet which was just enough for me to buy.
