Bionic Commando Rearmed is not one of those games. It is, arguably, one of the best values on either service, and will definitely give you a whole lot of bang for your ten bucks.
Bionic Commando Rearmed is very much a remake of the original NES game from 20 years ago. The basic gameplay, which is 2D action/adventure styled, is almost untouched, and involves the player using a bionic arm to swing themselves about the level like a Spider-man spin-off. There's no jumping in the game, so mastering this mechanic is crucial to your success. For fans of the NES game, the mechanic works identically to how it used to. Even the developers admit to its lack of realism, as it doesn't really take speed or momentum into account, but hey, that's Bionic Commando, and you couldn't really change it without changing the spirit of the game."
