Personally I hated the first Lost Planet, but loved Bionic Commando.

I Wouldn't say hate, but I couldn't get into Lost Planet. I'll try again eventually, though Bionic Commando was ALOT of fun. Hell, I had more fun with this game then InFamous. I Never understood why it got the reviews it got.

The Giant Bomb guys made it sound like fun on their podcast at least :)

Yeah, maybe hate is too strong a word for Lost Planet. I kind of enjoyed it at first, but got stuck somewhere. Bionic Commando was weird though in that the first few hours I didn't really like it and was pretty critical, and then at some point something "clicked" and I loved it to the point where I kept it. Doesn't happen like that too often for me I don't think.

Don't get me wrong, the allusion to Lost Planet wasn't really a compliment. LP was barely worth $10 to me, that's why I figure BC is worth just that. Hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised...the gametrailers rating was actually pretty high, 7.5 I believe so I could do a lot worse.

Bionic Commando more then anything once you get the swing mechanic down it just feels right. Like before then you realize a learning curve to getting use to the arm and the rather limited ammo, but once you get the swinging down and get upgrades the game just feel's right. Though I just wish you got all those moves early on is all, but still I had fun with it and it never gets tiresome using enemies as kites to shoot down.

Oh, okay, I was kind of taking it the reverse of that, that you liked Lost Planet and so thought you might like Bionic Commando. Well, don't worry about that then, because they're no more alike than say Lost Planet and Gears of War or something. Just give Bionic Commando a few hours. Actually come to think of it, it seems like a whole lot of us on here like it!

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 have a free day on Monday, would it be worth my time to pick this game up used from gamestop?

I own a 360 and a PS3 and I just dislike when people skew the facts in the hopes of making one console look bad. If the information was accurate then I would be fine with it being posted, just like how when Bayonetta came out it was a horrible version on the PS3 till a patch came out that didn't fix the problems totally, but alleviated most of 'em.

That being said this is the internet and nothing should be taken seriously, but at the same time it's not easy to tell one someone is being honest, joking, or what-have-you.

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.
