Another NES classic gets the modern makeover treatment in the form of Bionic Commando. There’s a backstory based on a missing wife and soldiers with mechanical enhancements – and that’s all you need to know. What’s far more important is that the game is all about swinging – from buildings, lamposts, trees – if the swing icon appears next to something, you can launch yourself at it and use your bionic arm to soar. Throw in some hi-octane combat and you have a fun, if dumb, slice of action.
