Within an hour, I had mastered the bionic arm. Within an hour, I could swing from street-sign to street-sign, gathering out-of-the-way collectibles, or scale a building to kick a sorry sniper's butt. And the rousing music - much of it culled from the classic NES game - makes sweet moments even sweeter. Development team GRIN, also responsible for Bionic Commando Rearmed, have created an immensely playable game. Unfortunately, it's not the fount of creative goodness that its predecessor was."
