    This game is totally tubular. It's almost as cool as my new tapered haircut and my Vision Streetwear! I love the way you can swing around like a futuristic Tarzan with your bionic arm. It's the cooles...

    This is one of those games I've played a million times, and it never gets old. There's something so awesome about a game that gives you a grappling arm! The story is not very original, it's a classi...

    Despite its size and lack of color, Bionic Commando manages to easily equal if not surpass the NES game that inspired it

    Few remakes are ever as good as the original. Rarer still are the times when a port will end up being better than the version that came before it. This makes Bionic Commando for the Game Boy all the...

    Bionic Commando, even though is a classic, still has the mechanics to give the gamer of today a challenge.

    Back in the day, you could find in your local arcade a classic called Bionic Commando. Following suit of games like Ninja Gaiden, Capcom released Bionic Commando on the NES. Just like the Arcade count...

    One of the greatest games ever made.

    Rated on June 29, 2008 by wiredscotty

    I'm going to be blunt about this. Humans need a handful of things to survive. Food, Water, Shelter, Clothing, Sleep, Air....and Bionic Commando. Bionic Commando being #1 on that list. Food is delic...

    Still classic after almost twenty years!

    Rated on July 07, 2007 by heyhamburgerpim

    This was the first game I ever borrowed from a friend after I got my NES. Three years later, he got it back. This sums up my feelings for Bionic Commando. Why did I not release it for three years? ...

    Retarded. Completely, retarded.

    Rated on February 05, 2006 by TckeyTheGlove

    How bionic are you if you can't shoot up? Or down? Or any way but left or right for that matter. What about jumping? What happened to that? I beat it just yesterday, to remind me how bad it was. I wan...

    I have revised this review, since my feelings for the NES version has changed dramatically.

    Rated on January 14, 2011 by wiserat4

    If you've played the NES version of Bionic Commando then you are well aware of the fact that this is one of the first video game protagonists who can't jump. Ever since Dirty Harry from the classic At...
