Default Bionic Commando pc?

I just noticed that the game has been available in stores here in Sweden since Friday 17th and I assume in a lot of other places as well. There's no other thread for the game that I can see, so has anyone bothered to get it yet? Is it any good on the pc? I want to see some screenshots!

It reviewed all over the place, some thought it great others said it's the worse Capcom has put out in awhile. I think most PC gamers have better games to play right now. Waiting for it to come down in price.

Capcom didn't develop it, GRIN did.

I'm not a huge fan of GRIN, they are more of hit and miss with their games. Only best game from GRIN at present is Bionic Commando Rearmed.

It's supposed to have a learning curve but many reviews that I read said that it was really fun once you learned how not to suck. So I'm interested in it but I kinda want a demo first.

It looked pretty craptastic to me... sticky aim, boring graphics... not much exciting about it. Like many average shooters I will probably grab it when it hits $20 or something.

It sold pathetically too, news sites have reported. Like 25,000 units in it's launch week.

Tried it, sucked. Not even worth $20 imo.

Well Capcoms engine and they published it. Close enough.

So after this and Terminator. What has happened to GRIN? I thought they did ok on the Ghost games. :: All their talent left?

For reals? I guess I really had no interest in this game what so ever. lulz.

Main thing is RE5 uses Capcoms engine and it's better.

It's the Wanted/Terminator Salvation Engine. I think the engine is terrible...
