Bionic Commando Rearmed Video Review
IGN gave it a 9.4, with Hillary Goldstein saying "There is not a person on this planet that should go without this game." As many of you know, Bionic Commando is one of my very favorite 8 bit NES games of all time. To see it honorably resurrected to its proper original 2D form, with incredible new graphics and bosses, is truly a dream come true. Five years ago, something like this, or Mega Man 9, was unthinkable. 2008 is the year when downloadable games have come into their own, and at this point I could honestly recommend buying an Xbox 360 just for the XBLA games. This latest re-envisioning of a true 8 bit classic appears to be the crowning jewel.
