They've given us Puzzle Fighter HD, Battlefield: Wolf of the Commando 3, 1942 Joint Strike, Street Fighter is on its way, and here's Bionic Commando Rearmed. What is Bionic Commando Rearmed? An actual remake of the original 8-bit game released 20 years ago. Don't be confused with the other Bionic Commando game Capcom and GRIN are working on. Where as Bionic Commando will be a full-fledged 3D adventure, this Rearmed remake is a 2D action side-scroller.
As is the norm with old-school next-gen remakes, the core of Bionic Commando Rearmed remains practically unchanged, right down to the controls. The shooting and grappling mechanics remain untouched in this remake, so don't worry about the game messing with your nostalgic memories. But Capcom and GRIN have added new weapons to the arsenal, so you've got the ability to cause more damage. Additionally, a co-op mode has been put together for this remake, allowing a pair of gamers to play Rearmed's story mode simultaneously."
