Default Bionic Commando Rearmed is a must buy !

Why sidescrollers died off is beyond me. THis game proves that no matter how pretty the game is that game play always will rule supreme. This game has incredible play mechanics and seeing the sidescrolling type of game play redone in (2.5D) as they are calling it shows me that there are tons of games that need remakes in this style....

Castlevania anyone ?

I miss the sidescrollers and this game shows me why I missed them. When they are done right they are just plain fun...

2D games can look just as pretty as 3D games, so it's not a graphics issue either.

It boggles my mind, also, as to why 2D games aren't as abundant on the consoles and pc these days.

@ OP: Thanks for letting me and many others know that this is now available.

Direct2Drive has it: http://www.direct2drive.com/476/6521...armed-Download

Downloading client!

Pretty lame about the lack of a Steam release but I've bought a few games on D2D and had no issues. Sucks for people who don't live in the US though.
