    Classic run-n-shoot. Permanently in my collection!

    This is one of those old school games that's easy to beat but hard to get rid of. One of the first NES games I played, and I've had to buy it twice to replace my old one that turned up missing. A sequel to Commando, thi... Read Full Review

    One of Capcom's finest NES releases. A real gem with unique gameplay.

    Aaah, the good old days. Back when Capcom on the box meant that I would like the game (most of the time). Bionic Commando is already more than 15 years old, but it still plays like recent handheld titles. You are a ... Read Full Review

    Go Out Swinin'

    I used to love this game as a kid, but it really hasn't lasted over time. The game itself is fairly easy to pick up but takes a long time to actually get good at it. To me the biggest problem is the controls are a bit ... Read Full Review

    The introduction of the bionic arm gave this game the uniqueness which set it apart from the average NES game.

    "Bionic Commando" for the NES had one of the most unique characteristics as compared to the plethora of other side-scrolling adventure games available for that console. Of course I'm talking about the bionic... Read Full Review

    The Legend

    This is actually the best game that I played in NES and still playing now. All elements of the game from graphics, sound and gameplay were superb. It is one of the few games in NES that has a very good storyline. The end... Read Full Review

    Oh yes, get your grapple on!

    Bionic Commando introduced the gaming world to jumpless platforming. I definitely did not like that at first. By the end of the first level, however, I was hooked. As most agree, it is far better to swing than to walk... Read Full Review
