GC08: Bionic Commando gameplay

GC08: Bionic Commando gameplay

Bionic Commando was of course at the Game Convention, but it was very difficult to do a good video of that game because the gameplay is quite a bit more complex than usual and finding a player that actually knew his way around was almost impossible. Still, we at least got this video of the tutorial level.

"complex" is the right word. i tried it for about 10 minutes, but i didnt get the swinging mechanic at all.
i hope they release a demo.

oh, by the way: the displays at the capcom booth were horrible.

Looks very fun.
I hope they deliver on this title and make it more exciting throughout the game, if so I will buy it.
But so far, it looks pretty cool.

it looks good, but it isnt anything im excited for. swing mechanic looks fun, and far more skill based then that of spiderman (which is good) probably rent it but we'll see.

I was raised on the Tenchu games, so this shouldn't be much of a problem ;)

The level design was the most impressive part of this game, and this new level doesn't disappoint :)

If you ask me the level design looks fairly misleading. Going by looks alone it appears you can go almost anywhere, it's pretty vertical in appearance... but the actual game play made it look limited to those two levels. I may be wrong but it looked like a beautifully designed and expansive area with only one real path to take.

It looks very complicated. I can imagine a lot of frustration because of tapping the wrong buttons or swinging the wrong way during a heavy action packed scene. I'll wait for reviews on this one.

Wow, complicated and a bit messy to say the least. I hope and I mean HOPE that they fix the weightlessness of enemies and moveable objects, as I have cried about in other posts, before its released though. Or at the end of it all, I'm going to be annoyed while playing this like I was with Lost Planet's similar issue. It would then sadly become a rental after I had hoped it would be amazingly fun and as well done as BC: Rearmed has been and is. Fingers are crossed.

Okay , I'll be honest

This game looks awful , they need to refine the mechanics of it

I loved Bionic Commando on NES

But will pass on this

  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Quite frankly, I'm excited for the StarCraft Remaster. I haven't played the original in years, and even though my brother has the CDs - and DLCs - it's very old game design wise. (7 Hours ago)
