> BIONIC COMMANDO (US version) by Capcom


• Completed by Brendan Phoenix
Reviewed by Vinny Mainolfi

Here's a question for you: what came first - the chicken or the egg? With regards to Bionic Commando and the two very different versions (UK and US), it's obvious which one came first because you wouldn't create a seriously inferior version of the game after you saw the UK version, would you?

Anyway - the US version of Bionic Commando is a complete pile of cack from beginning to end. Amateurish graphics, poor controls, simplistic audio, dragging pace, ... need I say more? Needless to say, if you fancy playing Bionic Commando then don't think twice about heading STRAIGHT to the UK version... you'll thank me for it!


The final mission is complete...


"Well done."


But now, you're going to get a kick in the teeth for your efforts!


The End.

HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Brendan used the Cheat 'O Matic all the way to the end. Bless :-D

SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once the final mission is completed, an ending message appears at the top of the screen, which reads: "YOUR MISSION HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED. A BONUS OF 1000000 PTS WILL BE AWARDED FOR YOUR SUCCESSFUL MISSION. ALTHOUGH EVIL HAS PERISHED AND PEACE RESTORED, WE MUST MAINTAIN CONTINUOUS EFFORTS TO MAINTAIN PEACE AND TO REBUILD THE WORLD. YOUR MISSION WILL NOT BE TRULY FULFILLED UNTIL WE REGAIN A HARMONIOUS WORLD."

COMMENTS:

  • Brendan: A terrible conversion, buggy, bad music - the one thing it does have though is an arcade accurate ending. Right down to the big statue at the end and a word for word epilogue taken from the arcade original.
     
  • Vinny: Wow! What a complete pile of cack! It's amazing to see such a bad conversion when the UK version rocked! Saying that though - neither of the two version had a great ending, and as Brendan mentioned, the US version of the ending is arcade accurate! 2/10 from me.
  • Andrew Fisher: The main reason for two different versions is that Capcom USA developed its own games while US Gold gained licenses for the rest of the world.

    The US version has a better ending than the UK equivalent, but the rest of the US game is really poor.

FINAL SAY: Stand to attention soldier! You're slacking!

G.E. RATING: 2 / 10
