Bionic Commando - ReArmed

It seems that Capcom's NES classic will get sequel, and can you believe it's not 3D?!

In fact it IS 3D, but only to give a fresh breath to 2D.

I want MORE games recreated this way!

To be honest I am one of those guys that never really got into Bionic Commando unlike my friends/family during that time but this remake looks absolutely awesome!

There will be two versions of Bionic Commando, one is a remake the other one is a 3D action adventure.

Looks a bit empty, the characters thin and the level too colorful with that nasty orange eye-destroyer look. But we'll wait for the full version...

Very Flashback inspired atmosphere to it.

Looks like the 3D will be used well, wonder how other games companies will treat future games if this one does well.

SMS version of PoP was superior to all 8bit consoles/computers.

GBA version (The Sands of Time) was nice as well.

looks great to me 2d gameplay with the graphics quality that 3d games have had for so many years! I hope it sells well so more companies try it!

Not sure why, but I always was under impression that PC Engine was 16 bit, not 8bit. I know, it's wrong, but still...

You're right, it is superior to SMS version.

You can test it now.

Just get the game from ol' computer dot com and get Fusion emulator to play it in.

If I'm not mistaken people considered the PC Engine a 16-bit console because it ran on two seperate operating 8-bit processors. I could be wrong though so feel free to correct me..
