Andrew Weymes of The Nightly Gamer writes: "The multiplayer demo for the upcoming release from Capcom entitled Bionic Commando hit the Xbox Live Marketplace a little while ago. The demo itself consists of one map and one mode which is deathmatch. Each deathmatch is five minutes long, but you can replay the same match as many times as you like. The demo as a whole is a little disappointing in a number of ways. The original Bionic Commando for the arcades and Nintendo gained a bit of a following for its time but it obviously didn't reach the status of more popular games such as Contra. Last year, Capcom generated some hype around this upcoming sequel to Bionic Commando by releasing Bionic Commando Rearmed which is essentially a remake of the original with upgraded visuals. Hopefully the full game is a lot better looking, has much larger multiplayer environments and has some more compelling gameplay modes, because this demo isn't a very flattering representation of the series."
