First I played Bionic Commando, which is a ridiculously difficult game, and it feels much different from Commando and the NES version of Bionic Commando. First of all you die every 10 or so seconds, and the grappling hook (or bionic arm, if you will) is hard to maneuvre because of the Playstation 2 Gamepad not being optimized for this (I guess). Thank goodness you have unlimited credits though, but get used to that annoying Continue jingle as you’ll hear it a lot throughout the game, you will get killed by enemies off-screen a lot. Also the agme game is short on only 4 stages, but considering the amound of quarters this sucker will cash in from you this might be a good thing. I couldn’t spot any blatant Nazi references, though that final boss and the enemy soldiers sure look like they were intended to be Nazies after all.
For a comparision between all the bazillion ports that there exists for this game please look at the video below:
In this above level deformed faces enter from the background and stunt your advancement. They won’t hurt you, but they sure do achieve their objective: To demoralize the enemy.Then at this later level this giant (zombie?) thing enters and spews things at you. When this thing first showed up I felt a wee bit frightened, but I defeated it quite easily with the powerups I’d picked up.
Did you notice the sharp image in the later two pictures? That’s the Component cable I got for Christmas that is coming to use. Neat.
