Geniale Scharfschützeneinlagen à la MDK und Ballersequenzen aus der Vogelperspektive sorgen für gelungene Abwechslung. Technisch hat NST Unglaubliches vollbracht: extrem flüssige Charakter-Animationen, digitalisierte Sprachsamples, mitreißende Musik und griffige Steuerung. Worauf wartet ihr noch - 22 fesselnde Level sind nur eine Bestellung beim Importer entfernt.

Simply put, Bionic Commando is a must-own Game Boy game. You may occasionally find yourself longing for the levels and graphical style of the original game, but the new model doesn't disappoint in any way.

כל חובבי האקשן והיריות יאהבו. אני משבח את נינטנדו על העבודה המדהימה שלהם במשחק הזה!
The challenge level may be a bit much for some, but if you like action, this is the best game on the Game Boy Color. It's about time we had a game that pushes GBC and provides a great play. The use of color is amazing, and fans of the original won't be disappointed.

BC's levels and locales are colorful and attractive, but you won't get lost--nor will the gameplay---in an eye-straining background mass. The characters are tightly rendered, and BC also features good sound effects and even some speech---still a relatively racy Game Boy Color bonus. Despite its little---very little---bells and whistles, Bionic Commando feels as tight and fundamental as its chunkified forebears, and any local excess cooks were shot or bionic-armed to death long before they could spoil the broth.
All in all Bionic Commandos is a cool little game, not quite as cool as Ghosts N Goblins but certainly a worthy competitor.
Overall, this game suffers a bit too much to be solid fun. The claw, while cool, is only for transportation so you can't attack with it . . . ever. On top of that, while you have a claw, you don't have the ability to jump. This is a huge problem because the claw just doesn't deploy fast enough for you to get out of the tight spots jumping would, making Bionic Commando: Elite Forces a nice attempt that went horribly wrong. While not quite a lousy game, it's as close as you want to come.
