Bionic Commando is a remake of the original game of the same name. Rad Spencer is sent out on a mission by the Federal States to rescue his friend, Super Joe, who was captured by the Doraize army. Now it’s up to Rad to save his ally and defeat the leader of Doraize: Director Wiseman. Luckily, Rad has a cybernetic arm that allows him to grapple onto surfaces and climb up to new areas or swing over obstacles. Players will also find comm systems that can be used to gather helpful hints.
It is possible to explore the stages in this game in a non-linear manner, because players can move from area to area using Rad’s helicopter. Rad will have to gun down hordes of enemy soldiers and fight powerful bosses over the course of the game. Mighty weapons and useful tools like the Wide Range Rifle and Shield Goggles will help players on their quest to defeat the Doraize Army. Bionic Commando also features storytelling elements like cutscenes and dialogue as well as a password system that allows players to save their game.
