Bionic Commando (Nintendo NES, 1988)
|Step into this action-filled adventure game from Nintendo and take a trip back to a time when video games were inspired by the unequalled thrill of the arcade. Bionic Commando is an epic platform shooter with a unique twist. The hero, named Super Joe, is part of a special commando unit and is unable to jump. In order to scale walls, climb up ledges, or cross gaps, Super Joe must rely on his bionic arm to carry him. This grappling tool serves as a weapon as well, and it allows Super Joe to swing from signs and other objects during his quest. Stacked with classic shooting action, this is a fun-filled retro game fit for any Nintendo Entertainment System collection.
Nintendo Power ranked it as the 17th best Nintendo Entertainment System video game, describing it as one of the console's most original action games due to the ability to swing. GamesRadar ranked it the fourth best NES game ever made. The staff called it a classic and praised its grappling mechanic.
