Gamer Review: Bionic Commando - Rearmed

Gamer writes: "In this age of high-quality downloadable games, retro remakes must be among the toughest to really get right. Stray too far from the source material and fans of the original will be up in arms but stick to the aged blueprint too closely and your brand new game will be tired and dated the day it comes out. We've seen both PSN and Live throw up examples of both extremes already – a lot of the Atari remakes offer nothing new, for instance, while things like Bomberman Live have alienated veteran players somewhat with a selection of cheap new power-ups. It's a delicate balance to strike and despite Rearmed often falling closer to the retro-by-numbers side of things, there's enough fresh substance here to make it very much a new experience for most players."

The story is too old to be commented.
