Grin have done a fine job in not being weighed down by the need to stay true to the original. Instead, they've tried to make Bionic Commando as much fun as possible even if it meant straying so far away from the original that hadn't it been for the name and concept, you wouldn't see any connection. And they have succeeded, because despite its obvious flaws, it's a blast to play. It starts out feeling mediocre and the controls seem clunky, but it quickly wins you over with its charming style and challenging gameplay. Just give yourself long enough to get used to Bionic Commando; you won't want to put it down till the credits roll.
