Other GamePeople columnists have reviewed this from their perspective - huh?:
Soulful Gamer (PS3)

Here's what I drew with my mouse after playing Bionic Commando. I hope you like my video game reviews that are not hand drawn - but written one mouse stroke at a time.

I completely missed the sense of nostalgia everyone was going on and on about when Bionic Commando for the PS3 and 360 was first released. Not once did this game make me pine for that game I hardly remember playing on the NES when I was 8.

This militaristic adventure game with hexagon graphic designs felt reminiscent of game I hold dear to my heart, but that game was Metal Gear Solid. Bionic Commando is clunky in gameplay as well as level design. If I had two additional fingers on each hand I may have gotten comfortable with the controller layout, and each new stage raised my expectations with what would always turn into a disappointingly restricted amount of playing area.

The overall experience was that weird boring feeling that comes just before complete frustration sets in. On a scale of 1 to unicorn-riding-pirate-zombie, this game is medial-household-chore.

"My mouse drawn reviews are my gut reaction to whatever game I've just played, and, as a service to the intelligent reader, it will be dispensed with as many pictures and as few words as I can manage."

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
