Capcom delivers an absolute stellar remake in Bionic Commando Rearmed. Not only is this action-packed outing as great as the original NES release, Rearmed delivers an entirely revamped experience for this generation than only adds to its appeal.

  • Stunning visuals
  • Bionic Arm
  • Two-player co-op

We dislike

  • Top-down portions are dull
  • No online co-op
