  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Bionic Commando Rearmed sees a return of the intense 2-D side-scrolling, shooting, and grappling action from the much-loved 1988 Bionic Commando. Bionic Commando Rearmed brings the gameplay up to date with stunning new visuals, new weapons, online rankings, and a reworked musical score just for starters. Bionic Commando Rearmed delivers two-player co-op, a frenetic multiplayer mode for up to four players, and a series of over 50 devious challenge rooms to test your swinging skills. Wire-tapping the enemy communication in Bionic Commando Rearmed gives you access to information about weaknesses for the newly-designed Imperial bosses in the game. Play Bionic Commando Rearmed to unlock the original NES character costume and use it in Bionic Commando. [Capcom] Expand

  1. This is probably one of the best, if the not the best downloadable title on the PSN and XBLA by far.
  2. It has all of indicators of a classic game.
  3. It’s got a fantastic sense of style in its presentation.
  4. Xbox 360 typically lacks good platformers, but Bionic Commando Rearmed is a great one. Though it only takes several hours to beat, you will keep coming back to find more secrets and best your times in the challenge rooms. This is one of the best remakes ever made for a current generation console, check it out as soon as humanly possible.
  5. While the single-player experience is truly the high point of the $10 purchase, the multiplayer and challenge rooms act like the "sprinkles on the cupcake," giving the player more game than they should ever expect for $10.
  6. Everything you know and love from the classic NES Bionic game is back, including challenging level design, tons of shoot-em-up action and a bionic arm that requires some strategy to utilize.
  7. The retroest modern game you'll play and not nearly as updated as it could be. [Oct 2008, p.101]

    I really really like this game. It's attractive, it's unortadox and it has really good music. The multiplayer is not online, and that is the only thing I am missing. I would have liked to play the very crazy tempo mp game over the net. Expand
