GamePlasma writes: "Remakes and Sequels are the mainstay to keeping a franchise alive. Normally such additions are no more than a graphical upgrade or extension of a prior storyline. Bionic Commando: Rearmed, however, grips hold of its predecessor and keeps swingin' forward. The original SNES version was undoubtedly fun to play, and many elements like level design, the bionic arm, and side scrolling mechanics are still inherent in the game play.
Beyond that though, Rearmed is a whole new experience. Many praise Braid for its fascinatingly unique visual style. That may be, but Rearmed excels visually just as well. Everything from lighting effects to set design is outstanding. Almost every dominant color in the palette is used to perfection. And that's just how the game looks."
