Nintendo Life: Bionic Commando Review

Nintendo Life: If there’s one sacred cow in the entire platforming genre, it’s jumping. According to our highly scientific calculations, there are one hojillion sidescrollers that rely on hopping all about to climb, collect and kill. Capcom’s Bionic Commando series has plenty of climbing, collecting and killing but dines on hamburger through its rad mechanical arm, switching the dynamic of jumping to one of grappling, grabbing and swinging. When the original hit the arcade in 1987 and the NES the following year, nothing played quite like it, and that is still the case today. (3DS, Bionic Commando) 8/10
