"When this high-definition, XBLA remake of the original Bionic Commando was revealed last month I think I started crying a little bit. The NES classic is one of my favorite games of all time and it was hard for me to believe that they were not only re-releasing it, but doing so with new gorgeous graphics and added features.
But how did it play? Was it everything I had hoped it would be? Were the retro tears of happiness that cascaded down my cheek early this year worth it?"
