Bionic Commando gameplay video

Bionic Commando gameplay video

Capcom will release GRIN's Bionic Commando this week and we've been given a copy of the Xbox 360 version. The First 10 Minutes video isn't ready yet, but here's a gameplay video showing an early part in the game. I've barely scratched the surface but the game seems like a solid action shooter, the controls have worked fine so far. The game's swinging mechanics can't be compared to the Spider-man games, they take some time to getting used to and you always have to aim for the right spots.

Grin is a Swedish game developer who made the Bionic Commando Re-armed, Wanted: weapons of fate, Terminator Salvation and this.

They also made the GRAW PC-versions.

I already have the game (it's available since yesterday in Belgium). I didn't expect too much, but I ended up playing for 3 hours straight, which I usually never do. Not that the game is that great, but it is addictive. Once you know how the swinging works, it's a delight to outsmart the enemies. The graphics are very nice (except for the opening cutscene which looks terrible). Bad things until now: it's very linear which breaks the feeling of being able to roam a city. And the game can be very punishing (in radio active environments which are the invisible walls, and when falling in water). But still: I like the game very much and is ideal to pass the time until InFamous arrives.

I un-pre-ordered it after I saw some vids the last few weeks. Some parts of the graphics work well, others are just plain bad (some lighting). Also the forecast of hardcore grappling put me off. I'll stick to the PSN-version of BC (which is hard enough already).

Im going to get it eventually, ive already seen some reviews plus i played the multiplayer demo. Seems decent enough for me to warrant getting it a lower price some where.

I think droezelke pretty much summed it up. The game seems to suffer from it's lack of freedom. It pretends to be free roaming then prohibits you from entering radioactive areas and crossing water. It's something to pass the time until better games arrive but not terribly much else, and since inFamous is so close now anyway I think I'll be passing on this... at least until it's uber cheap anyway.

    GriftGFX They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Belgium wants to ban loot boxes in Europe. Yeah, good luck with that. And I hope they plan on extending draconian regulation to card games as well. (2 Hours ago)

  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tiz: Just read an interview with the gambling commision on the lootboxes in BF2. They have to investigate if what EA offers really is based on chance. Wait, what? That is proven and is advertised by (9 Hours ago)
