CES 2011: Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 Won’t Alienate Hardcore Fans
Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 retains the classic two-dimensional gameplay of the original, but with an added jump ability. After playing through a few minutes with the sequel it’s apparent that developer FatShark did not want to completely turn away fans of the classic gameplay. It’s no Mario jump and it only helps you get over small objects that might have been just minor annoyances in the Rearmed. The level design in Rearmed 2 is such that seasoned veterans can get through entire levels without jumping. When questioned about a possible soundtrack being released I given the answer that it was a good idea, so here’s to hoping because the original remake had a fantastic soundtrack.
Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 arrives as a downloadable title on Feb. 2 for Xbox 360 (1200 MS Points) and PlayStation 3 ($14.99).
