Bionic Commando Returns in the Best way Possible

The original Bionic Commando for the NES is still one of my all time favorite games, the story was Super 80's Action Hero, and it was GREAT. So when i heard they where gonna "rearm" it for the new generation of consoles i was very excited but also worried the developer  wouldn't give it the treatment it deserves i am happy to say that i walked away from it  with my fond memories of the original not only intact but with a new appreciation for al the guys/gals over at GRIN, they really did a bang-up job not only remaking the original with nearly everything ripped straight outta the NES version but with a very high quality shine to it. They reworked what didnt work back then into a new and often better game. Best of all instead of GRIN just taking the old game and refreshing it they threw in a lot of modes that they reallt didnt need to, though im very glad they did Challenge Mode will have u glued to yuor TV for hours until u can complete them all and Co-Op is great fun, though Multiplayer tends to becoming chaotic, and almost unplayable im sure many people will enjoy it just fine. So all in all for 800 MP there isnt a better deal on XBLA to date. So get online and get to swinging, Super Joe needs your help !!!!
